Surnames: CALLOW
Clive and everyone,

Given by Clive:
"Son of John R. Callow
Edward CALLOW 28 May 1776 - 25 Jun 1833 (Ballacreggan Farm)"

We have tried for years to find the ancestor of our Fall River, MA line of Callows.
We know it goes back to Nathaniel born 1841 in Stockport and then Alexander, born ca 1821, supposedly in Norwich, then Edward, born ca 1780.
The reason I suddenly post again is the naming pattern of this family. With the exception of the Nathaniel and Alexander, the names John, Richard, Robert and Edward are prevalent. My grandfather was John William and had a son John Richard. His brother was Edward and he had a son John Robert and a son Richard. Also, Alexander, with family, entered this country through Baltimore, NOT NY or Boston. I wonder if he had relatives in that area to begin with? We have had no luck finding the ship but he came ashore "in irons" for knocking a tray of food from a waiter's hands to feed his sons.
Clive,
Do you have any more on the above Edward? All we have on ours is he married "May" from Ireland and he supposedly was having family in Norwich around 1821. Mom did find there was an Edward who fled the Isle of Mann to go to England in the right time period but connection has eluded us.

Hi Catherine,
Sorry to say we have no record of the name you mention. That does not mean there is not a connection. Just not yet.

Hi,

I believe that my great, great Grandfather was Nathaniel Callow. He left a wife and son (Thomas) in England when he went to America. His Fathwer was Alexander Callow of Stock[port, England and I believe, but am uncertain, that his father was Edward born 1776 in the Isle of Man. Edward married a Mary Prusia who I believe came from Ireland. I have additional information if you are interested. I am based in England (Cheshire - originally Bolton Lancashire)

Hi Cousin Ron!!!
I cannot believe my eyes when I read your message! There was always family folklore on this side of the water about Alexander not collecting his pension that was due him because "a friend" was the only person who could vouch for him and that "friend" had left a wife and family behind in England! Here is a quote from a family page post I made several years ago when I began to suspect it might Nathaniel himself that was that "friend"!
"On the old site I found this while beginning to transfer files:
Gail Slade - Jul 29, 2006
Found an interesting item!

England & Wales, FreeBMD Marriage Index: 1837-1983 Record

Name: Nathaniel Callow
Year of Registration: 1865
Quarter of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar
District: Bolton
County: Lancashire
Volume: 8c
Page:
Now I have the marriage certificate for our Nathaniel in 1868 to Mary Lang in Fall River, MA, USA
There is family folklore that an English Military pension was not claimed because it would expose someone who had left another family in England. Is this evidence that that person may have been our Nathaniel? Was he married in England in 1865, left and then married Mary in 1868 in the states?
There is another Nathaniel Calow with a birthdate similar to ours but he is in Macclesfield and I pretty much traced him right up through the 1891 Census in England. This isn't him! Wish I had the wife's name!"
That post was done in 2006 on a private Callow and Lang family site I run with my second cousin. wait til he hears this! We had no hope at all of ever discovering "the other family" left behind!
I would like to invite you to join us on that family page and meet some of your American cousins. I have more information on the Prussia line and Edward, the father of Alexander.
Email me privately at dardena@juno.com with your e mail address and I can send personal invitation. There is a great deal of information and pictures you would gain access to I am so amazed I have tears in my eyes!!!
