Gowen Manuscript Info:
Goochland County was named for Sir William Gooch, lieutenant-governor of Virginia from 1727 to 1749. Goochland County was formed in 1727 from the western portion of Henrico County. At the time of its creation, the land of Goochland County included all or part of the present counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Albermarle, Bedford, Buckingham, Campbell, Cumberland, Fluvanna, Nelson and Powhatan. In 1744, the western portion of Goochland County was detached to form Albemarle County. In 1749, Cumberland County was created out of the part of Goochland County south of the James River.
William Henry Gowan was born in Goochland County June 10, 1789, according to the research of Forrest Bruce Gowan, a great-great-grandson who lived in Jackson, Tennessee in 1991 and in 1998. In a letter of October 24, 1991 he was advised by a cousin that Joseph Henry Gowan was the father of William Henry Gowan. Other children of Joseph Henry Gowan were identified as John Gowan, Johnson Gowan, Joseph Gowan and an unnamed daughter.
Gowen Manuscript info: (Doesn’t appear correct):
Joseph Gowing, believed to be a son of Peter Gowing and Isabel Gowing, was born about 1732 in Stafford County. He apparently removed, along with his brother David Gowing to adjoining Goochland County, settling in St. James Parish.
