1702 July 4 – “Michael Gowin” and  “Phillip Gowin” were serving in the militia in nearby New Kent County. They were serving under Col. John Lightfoot. Created in 1654, New Kent County then encompassed territory included in the present counties of King William, King and Queen, Hanover, and New Kent.

(Note:  Not too far away, in Stafford County, Virginia, John Gowing, William Gowing, and James Gowing are serving in the militia in that county. (See William Gowing’s page:  https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/william-gowing-born-1677/ ).  There is no evidence at this point they are related to each other, but they are close to the same age, and all serving in the militia, so it is a possibility to keep open that they were related in some way – brothers/cousins possibly – at this point it is difficult to know without a Y-DNA match to someone who can definitively link their line via documentation with this particular line).

1720 July 14 – “Michael Gowing” is mentioned in an entry dated July 14, 1720 in the “Vestry Book of St. Pauls Parish, Hanover County, Virginia, 1706-1786:” “In obedience to an order of New Kent County, July 14, 1720, it is ordered that the precinct whereof Jere: Parker is Surveyor be divided into two precincts and that Peter Harrilson be Surveyor of the lower precinct, beginning at Ash Cake Road, thence up the road to Magirts path and that he have Michael Gowing‘s male tithables, Mrs. Mary Anderson’s tithables at the Quarter adjoining to that, those of George Butler, Henry Taylor and his own tithables to assist him in the clearing & keeping that road in good order.”

Gowen Manuscript/GRF info:

Michael Gowen, [Christopher2, Mihil1] son of Christopher Gowen and Anne Gowen, was born in January 1679, according to “Abingdon Parish, Gloucester County, Virginia Reg-ister, 1678-1761,” page 275. “Michael Gowin” and his brother “Phillip Gowin” were serving in the militia July 4, 1702 in nearby New Kent County. They were serving under Col. John Lightfoot. Created in 1654, New Kent County then encompassed territory included in the present counties of King William, King and Queen, Hanover, and New Kent. “Michael Gowing” was mentioned in an entry dated July 14, 1720 in the “Vestry Book of St. Pauls Parish, Hanover County, Virginia, 1706-1786:” “In obedience to an order of New Kent County, July 14, 1720, it is ordered that the precinct whereof Jere: Parker is Surveyor be divided into two precincts and that Peter Harrilson be Surveyor of the lower precinct, beginning at Ash Cake Road, thence up the road to Magirts path and that he have Michael Gowing’s male tithables, Mrs. Mary Anderson’s tithables at the Quarter adjoining to that, those of George Butler, Henry Taylor and his own tithables to assist him in the clearing & keeping that road in good order.”

Children born to Michael Gowen are believed to include:

John Gowen born about 1705 (? Dont see a John mentioned in any docs – I see a Michael Jr, Edward, and David – dont know where they get John here).
Same as above? .. . .

Michael Gowen (G9/1.4), son of Christopher Gowen (G10/1.1) and Anne Gowen, was born “1st month, 1675,” probably in Gloucester County, Virginia.
