Hi Gavin, Spent Christmas in Wales and then drove to Exeter where we stayed for 3 days. On a trip down to Padstow on 27th December we went past Rowden. The residents of the manor house and Upper Rowden must have thought us mad, stopping at the entrance and taking pictures of both houses and the signboard at the turning. It was great to see some connection with the world, being the only Rowdens in SA Regards Glenn

I married Ian Rowden on 21st January 1950. He served in World War 11 as a Spitfire pilot in the South African Air Force. (he was educated in Egypt and came to South Africa from there in 1941 and joined the SA Air Force and subsequently took his discharge here.).Sadly he died of Renal failure on 26th April 1982. We had one child, Glenn born on 11th November 1950. My Son and I live in Lakefield, Benoni, South Africa. My husband's father was Major Percival Rowden MBE, and his mother was Emily Rowden (nee Brown). I believe my father-in-law was originally from Kent - my mother-in-law was from Chester, where my husband was born. both my father-in-law and my mother-in-law later lived in York. They are both now deceased. My son Glenn is an Electrical Engineer. We would be delighted to receive e-mails from any ROWDEN. I forgot to mention that Diana Rowden was my husband's cousin. Regards Yvonne Rowden
