Cowen, Cowan & Colquhoun

Colquhoun is the Scots version of the name Cowan. I am seeking information about any Colquhouns who moved south to London after the uprising in 1745 and may have anglicized their name.
Specifically I am interested in George Cowen who was appointed to the Thames Water Police by the magistrate Patrick Colquhoun in 1798. They were both from Glasgow, were they related?
