Colledge." (Ilening, I., p. 138.) He married Alice
his second wife and widow of Luke Boyes), who as his "widdow"

TABITHA, half sister of John Edlow,3 and executrix of their
mother, married shortly after 1670 Col. Thomas Bowler, of Rappahannock, and was apparently his second wife. (General Clourt
Records; Calendar Virginia State Papers, I., p. 4.) Thomas
Bowler first appears as a headright (four adventures) in a patent
to Col. George Reade, of York, 24 February, 1658, and in his own
name had a grant of five hundred and four acres in Rappahannock
county, 28 September, 1674. (Land OfficeRecords, VI., p. 531.)
In 1670 he was commissioned a member of the Council. (QUARTERLY, III., p. 65.) His will, proved in Rappahannock 2 July,
1679, mentions friends Col. Nicholas Spencer and Capt. Thomas
Gouldman; son, James Bowler; daughter, Elizabeth Bowler; and
"child", Anne Bowler; wife, Tabitha, executrix. (Old Rappahannock Records.)
Anne Bowler, possibly the only child of the second wife, was
born 23 January, 1675, and died 14 April, 1705. She married
Richard Cocke " the younger of Bremo," Henrico county (Richard,2
Lt. Col. Richard'), and is buried at Bremo, where her tomb may
yet be seen. (QUARTERLY, III., p. 201.) Of this marriage were
born Bowler Cocke and Tabitha Cocke, who married Ebenezar
Adams, Gent., of New Kent county. (See ADAMS GENEALOGY,
Va. Mag. IHist. and Biog.,
IV., p. 323, 448-450.)
In 1714 Nicholas Smith, of Petsworth Parish, Gloucester county,
conveyed to his son, Capt. Nicholas Smith, land in Essex purchased
of Richard Cocke,and originally patented by Thomas Bowler, Esq.
(-Essex Records.) This was, doubtless, the tract known as "the
Mary Gold,"which Col. Bowler devised to his daughter Anne, afterwards the wife of Richard Cocke, as above, as Col. Meriwether
Smith, grandson of Capt. Nicholas Smith, died at "%lMarigold,"
Essex county, 24 January, 1794. (SMITH GENEALOGY, post, pages
45, 47.)
There is a deed of 4 June, 1690, recorded in Essex, by which
William Bowler and Elizabeth, his wife, pass lands in Rappahannock originally granted to Thomas Page, and by him conveyed to
William Bowler and his brother James Bowler, 26 February, 1688.
It is doubtful whether this is the son James mentioned in Colonel
Thomas Bowler's will, as there is no mention of a son William.
There are in Essex county numerous records of the Boulware
family (pronouncedBowler), which is possibly of the same origin.
