Re: Rowlands Garage. A.P.Rowlands.

In Reply to: Rowlands Garage. A.P.Rowlands. by Fred Drieberg. of 2355

E-Mail Received from Russel Stevenage in India:

I am the grandson of James Henry Rowlands, son of Richard William Rowlands.
Richard William Rowlands and Charlotte Caroline (Richard William Rowlands'
second wife) had a son - Arthur Percival Rowlands. James Henry Rowlands and
Arthur Percival Rowlands were half brothers, each starting their own
lineage, Arthur in Ceylon and James Henry Rowlands in India. The grandsons
and granddaughters of Arthur Percival Rowlands later migrated to Australia.

My cousin, Richard Rowlands (grandson of James Henry Rowlands) is in
constant contact with Fred Drieberg in Australia. Fred is half cousin of
mine as (and I understand this from Richard Rowlands) his grandfather and
mine were half brothers. I have all the info on my cousins in Australia,
thanks again to Richard. I even correspond off and on with Fred's sister,
Diana and her son and daughter.

A P Rowlands built Rowlands Garage in Sri Lanka. As far as I know, I don't
believe Rowlands Garage and Rowlands Ltd were one and the same. Would you
know anything about this?

After this rather long preamble :-) I must get to the point in writing to
you. I desperately need to know the name of Richard William Rowlands' first
wife (she who bore my grandfather, James Henry Rowlands). There is no
information that I have been able to find - her name, when they married,
where they married, where she came from and, finally, what became of her ...

I would be deeply obliged if you can throw any light at all on this elusive

Thanks and regards. Look forward to hearing from you.
