In Response To: GreatGrandfather & GreatGrandmother ()
You know David Low was actually the Lowther family Reunion tour director. I have the contact information is you would like to go as I have many family member that are interested.. I know Sarah Lowther is (DOB Jan. 4) is godchild to Her Majesty the Queen. I have a geneology chart that ties our connections and the Lowthers in our family to the Vikings(WODEN King OF Wessex and "Alfread the Unready"....The "Yellow" Earl as they called him, Lady Godiva,Old King Cole, Alexander the Great, Edward III (also a distinct tie in to the Cliffords) The Feast at Broughms castle (Wm Wordsworth) There is also another Wordsworth poem that he specifically worte when he was visiting the Lowther Castle Grounds. (Just called Lowther). Very fascinating history. They have activities at the Driving trails at Lowther usually in August. Hugh Clayton Lowther is now the 8th Earl of Lonsdale. When the Schubecks came over they dropped the Von and changed the spelling of the name. Please let me know if I can help.......
