William George Cowling
William George Cowling was born 27 Sep 1877 in Devon, England. He sailed for Canada in 1904, landing in Montreal on 5 June. His declared destination was Toronto. He was unmarried and his occupation was stone mason/bricklayer. That is the last record of him that I have been able to trace.His brother, John, travelled to Canada three times between 1911-14 and visited St Thomas, Elgin West; London; Cobalt and North Bay, Ontario but I have no idea if he had any contact with William.I would welcome…See More

Hi Vic! I ammended a post yesterday for you - not much, but it covered tne Royal Stud and the late HM Queen Mother. Gran was quite funny with the late Sir Barney Mullins (Ireland). Old Barney was an Irish Wing-Three-Quarter and a great Clay shot.
When he got his knighthood, I said that he was introduced in a Banquet in Ireland as a Farmer? Barney said I'm more of a Cattle Rustler. She said good, we don't seem to have one of those, so lets go ahead???
His favourite gaff was on Shergar when he said publicly the grass was greener on the other side of the fence? He was eventually found next door?
But her comment upon the Aga Khan and the Ranier's (Monaco) was of world standing. My elder daughter Florence owns the Royal Stud. They sent me an email which said they had passed it, but I cannot find it today? Maybe the server takes time to up-load it? Whatever, there seems to be no manner in which to enquire of them?
Whatever best of wishes and hope to see you soon. Be in Brentor before long. Not many of them left?
