I don't think we should be so quick to buy this line that Henry and Thomas Dow (the first Dow's in America) weren't brothers.
This theory that they weren't related comes from the Book of Dow, written in 1923 or something like that..(trivia: My dad, Reg Dow, b. 1920, is one of the last people listed in the book)
I don't think there's any firm evidence one way or the other about a relationship between Thomas and Henry. Why COULDN'T they be brothers?? Because there's no evidence, 350 years later, that they kicked around together??
Sorry, I'm not convinced.
I've been to Runham, the supposed birthplace of Henry and possible brother Thomas..there's not much there I'm afraid, not even a pub. And no Dow's in the local phone directory.
