I'm really interested in a number of connections being made here. How do you know that your family came over from Ireland as a result of the Potato Famine? The origin of the surname, 'Dowden' , in the South-West of England, appears to be of direct Anglo-Saxon derivation. So I'm interested in this Irish link. Also, for those of you whose Dowden ancestry links with Edington, have you made the connection with King Alfred? I live in London and have traced my patrilineal line back to Westbury, Wiltshire, 1670. Gerald Dowden
