Rowell Family Book


The Rowell Family of New England and Their English Origins, 1560-1900: Descendants of Thomas Rowell 1594-1662

The book "The Rowell Family of New England and Their English Origins, 1560-1900: The Descendants of Thomas Rowell 1594-1662" is back in print.  I bought a copy on amazon.com. This book was selling used for up to $350.00 so if you ever thought about getting your hands on a copy now is the time. I have the book in my genealogy store on this site if you want a quick peek at it.  The contents are mostly "names and dates" but its a great starting point if you are struggling with your Rowell family tree.
The book includes names of Rowell soldiers, Rowells of South Carolina, Rowells of Connecticut and other info. One disappointing note is that he got my great grandmother's name wrong. Oh Well, can't have everything.
 The book is written by William Haslett Jones.
