      I do not now think John Bowling is connected to the Hugh Bowling family of Chorley (which is the ancestry of James, Elizabeth and Thomas Bowling of Southern Maryland,

      John Bowling (d. 1684) immigrated to Maryland sometime before 1663 and settled along the Patuxent. From various events, we can estimate his birth between 1635 and 1640. Other than his neighbor Richard Marsham, almost none of the people mentioned in John Bowling’s estate documents or other affairs intersects with the circle of Capt. James Bowling. Nor do the relations mentioned in the next generation mention other Bowlings in Maryland. Accordingly it is concluded that John Bowling of the Patuxent (d. 1684) is NOT related to the family of Capt. James Bowling.
