Surname and Family Lists


Topic: A mailing list for the discussion and sharing of information regarding the Dowden surname and variations in any place and at any time. Dowden's apparently have their origin in England and Wales, probably in the Somerset area. American Dowden's seem to all come from one family in Colonial Maryland that may have come via the West Indies. Another Dowden family went from England to Nova Scotia, Canada.
