My Story, My name is Tom LaPorte and I live in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. I also have a LaPorte Family History web site but this is the story of why I made a web site specifically about my mother's Bowles family and how it grew into a single surname study of the Bowles (Boles, Bolles, Boals etc.) in Canada, Ireland and Great Britain (and in the US but only when they were connected to Bowles families in Canada).
My Bowles Family, my particular Bowles family tree plus what I've been able to learn about their lives including many connections to Bowles in other parts of Canada.
Bowles in Canada, this is a province by province and county by county (or municipality) collection of miscellaneous Bowles information which I have collected.
Bowles in Ireland, an Irish county by county collection of Bowles references with particular stress on any which may connect to Canadian descendants.
Bowles in Great Britain, many of the Bowles in Canada emigrated directly from England and most, but possibly not all, of the Bowles in Ireland originated in England. This section tries to sort out some possible linkages. This section also includes the Bowles in Wales and Scotland that had connections to Bowles in England although I've not yet traced any of these Bowles to Canada.
Bowles in the US, this is not an attempt to document all the Bowles lines in the US just the ones that are connected to Bowles lines in Canada
Origin of the Name, presents the theory which I like about the origin of the Bowles name as well as some other possibilities.
