William Bowles, Gardener at Seapark, co. Wicklow

Back to The Bowles of Wicklow
In December 1868 William Bowles, a gardener of 15 Wexford Street Dublin and the son of another William Bowles, also a gardener, was married at St Peters Dublin.  However by the time his first child was born in September 1869 he was a gardener at the Seapark estate in Wicklow.  See The Bowles of Dublin  Note: possibly William Sr was also a gardener at Seapark and/or William Jr worked at Seapark prior to his marriage but I haven't found any references for them prior to 1868.
Seapark, the residence of Robert Ellis, was an estate of 1200 acres near Magheramore co. Wicklow.  I only know that William Bowles Jr was a gardener at Seapark from the register of nearby Dunganstown church which recorded the baptism of five of his children between 1869 and 1877.  William Sr and his wife, Sidney, were also buried at Dunganstown church.
There was another Bowles gardener in Dublin when William lived there but I don't know yet if they were related.  See Walter Bowles, a Gardener of Tipperary, Wales, Carlow and Dublin
