Surnames: Bowdin, Condliffe, Taziker
I am trying to trace my ancestors along the Bowdin line but am having great difficulty as we know so little!

My grandfather, Frederick James BOWDIN (b 1914, registered in Newcastle Under Lyme, Staffordshire) married Amy TAZIKER (b 1916, Bolton, Lancashire) in 1943 in Farnworth, Lancashire. Frederick James had a brother Henry BOWDIN. Their father was Frederick Thomas BOWDIN (could be in records as BOWDEN for some reason) b 1881 registered in Congleton, married to Elizabeth CONDLIFFE (b 1879, Bradley Staffordshire) in 1902 in Audley(registered in Newcastle Under Lyme). The family moved to Dinnington, Sheffield in the early 1900's when the pit opened. Frederick Thomas's father was Thomas BOWDIN, b around 1845 in Staffordshire area. I believe that above that, there was also Henry BOWDIN but am having great difficulty tracing the family as they do not seem to appear in the records (unless I am not looking in the right places). My father seems to recall the area of Mow Cop was mentioned.

Any information gratefully received - unfortunately, family records were not a strong point in earlier generations and therefore we have very little to go on.

Kind regards

Glenn Bowdin

Hi...perhaps if you used the spelling Baudouin/Bowdoin you might find some of your kin. Now I have a Old French genealogy that tell where some of this line went during the revocation of the Edict of Nantas. Contact me and I will see if I can help you out. contact me at my e-mail only at: sueannbee@aol.com

It might help you to know that the Bowdoin name was Baudouin in Europe. sueannbee@aol.com

Now...here is what may be the problem with you finding your roots. In 1685, king Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes.
many of the Baudouin family moved to other places to avoid death because they were Huguenots. the families soght refuge in Prussia, anouther established themselves in the Low Lands, and the third branch in England, Pierre Baudouin was the branch that came to what became America. All the people who are "Bowdoin" are related to this family. The Hebri Auguste Baudouin was in Germany and his title was that he was from Noue. He lived around 1710-1800. He married Marie Auguste of Frankfurt. I hope this is some help and if you think this may be your line then I do have more. contact me at: sueannbee@aol.com
