History/Biography
William Henry Rowling was born February 9, 1826 in Truro, Cornwall, England. His wife, Mary Russell Rowling was born November 19, 1832 in Strickland, Dorset, England. Their first child, Rosetta Mary (Rose) was born August 8, 1858 in Plumstead, Woolwhich, Kent while Henry was in Esquimalt working as a Royal Engineer. The family then moved to New Westminster, and grew larger; James William Russell (Jim) Rowling born October 14, 1862, Henry Soar Rowling born February 3, 1864, Priscilla Amelia Rowling (later Byrne) born February 24, 1866 and William Henry Kemp Rowling born September 2, 1867 before settling at their farm on the North Arm of the Fraser River in September of 1868. They raised livestock and grew produce on their property for their growing family; Thomas George Rowling born and on April 14, 1869 and Elizabeth Jane Russell Rowling born on August 24, 1847. The Rowlings were raised Presbyterian but Priscilla later converted to Roman Catholicism when she married her husband, Peter Byrne on May 15, 1892. As young adults, Priscilla and Peter lived on the North Arm, close to Priscilla's parents and youngest sister Elizabeth. Her brother Henry moved his logging operations near the Byrne residence but James lived in South Vancouver with a family of his own. Their other siblings, Rose and Thomas, had passed away by this time. Peter and Priscilla had six children; their eldest Margaret Gladys Byrne, born February 28, 1893, twin daughters; Mary and Norah, Kathleen, Ultan Patrick (Pat) and baby Elizabeth Laura Byrne (later Cyr). After their parents died in 1906, Elizabeth went to live with her sister Priscilla and her nieces and nephews.
