He died in testate between 7 December 1779 and 31 December 1782 Imlaydale, Mansfield Woodhouse Township, Sussex County, New Jersey. He came with his father to Burlington NJ, in 1727.

In Traditions of Hunterdon, pg. 85 THE BOWLBYS OF HAMPTON (copied by Florence Bowlby, transcribed by Cynthia Katzman Bowlby)
The land from Asburry to Hampton Junction and extending over the Musconetonz into Warren County, a tract of 5,088 acres was purchased by John Bowlby from the first proprietors about the year 1740. John Bowlby came from England and selected this spot as favorable for a mill site.
His house stood near where Peter Cramer now lives. It was once considered as the grandest house in the settlement. It consisted of logs hewn on two sides and notched at the ends; was 1 1/2 stories high and had two large rooms below stairs, while the other houses had only one. It was the first house built here.

John Bowlby was quite young when he came to this country. His 2 brothers, Thomas and Richard, and their sisters came with them. Joseph Bowlby, now 83 years old, living at New Hampton, can remember when there was nothing but log houses in the whole valley.
When John Bowlby was running the boundaries of his land, Col. Daniel Coxes was also laying out a tract to the east of him. There seems to have been some strife between them as to who should get his survey extended on record first, and at the same time, get as much of the creek as possible.
Coxes became alarmed, mounted his horse and rode towards Burlington as fast as he could, while Bowlby ran his lines so far as to take up the whole stream, keeping Coxe out of every foot of it. He then mounted a horse and followed Coxe, who rode one horse to death, and borrowed another, and thus reached Burlington first. But Bowlby, "kept him out of the creek" and that was all he desired, for he now had the mill site, and the most valuable portion of the land. Before the mill was built, Bowlby went to Pittstown to mill, a distance of 10 miles, through the wilderness, following an Indian path. Sometimes he had to wait his turn, and would not get back for 2-3 days.

John Bowlby had 3 sons, Samuel who lived at the homestead, and owned the mill; John who took a part of the land that lay in Warren County, and Thomas or "Esq Tom" as he was called, by virtue of his office, who lived on the side of the stream, where Jacob Skinner now lives.
John Bowlby sold many hundreds of acres for 2s, 6d per acre, because he did not want to pay tax on it. Parties now living tell about the time they could have bought land from Bowlby for 50 cents an acre. John M. BOWLBY Sr. and Mary LANING were married before 1735. There is some question about who John Bowlby b. 1703 married. According to Raymond Edwin Bowlby's book:
John (7) married before 1735, the estimated birth of his eldest son. John's will states that his wife's name was Mary, but family historians disagree upon her maiden name. Some believed her name was Mary Laning, while others believed she was Mary, the daughter of Josiah Mercer of Burlington of whose will Thomas Bowlby (6), John's father, became executor in 1727. After carefully studying John's will, Harriet Stryker-Rodda, a leading expert on early New Jersey genealogical history today, wrote her opinion in a letter of 10 Nov. 1981, that the wife of John was Mary Laning: 'That will proves without a doubt his relationship and family name of his wife Mary, for the executors were wife Mary and friend Joseph Laning, witnesses Edward Laning, Isaac Laning and Altiye Laning. A wife's interests in an estate in such a rural area as Mansfield-Woodhouse were normally protected by having her relatives party to its settlement if any were living nearby."

Further information was offered by Allen Hudgens in an email 9/99
"I have to agree with your info that Mary Laning was the wife of John Bowlby. On Broderbund Pub. Company's cd disk, "Selected
U.S./International Marriage Records 1340-1980", they used records from Yates Pub. Co. of Stevensville, Montana and it shows the following info from a 2 page pedigree chart from Yate's source number 23965.002: John Bowlby born 1703 in England married Mary Laning in New Jersey in 1734."

Perhaps he married first Mary Mercer, then Mary Laning. Anyone able to add their source information to the discussion is encouraged to do so.

He died between 7 December 1779 and 31 December 1782 at the age of 75 in Imlaydale, Mansfield, Woodhouse Twp., Sussex Co., NJ.1242,1246

The maiden name of John's wife Mary remains completely uncertain. To date, our efforts to uncover primary source information regarding her maiden name have led us only to historical researchers speculations. What we have seen are "best guesses" but nothing definitive, and backed by virtually no primary source material.

Perhaps our most prolific and accomplished historical researcher, Raymond Edwin BOWLBY, has left us his case for suggesting Mary LANING. He wrote:

John (7) married before 1735, the estimated birth of his eldest son. John's will states that his wife's name was Mary, but family historians disagree upon her maiden name. Some believed her name was Mary LANING, while others believed she was Mary, the daughter of Josiah MERCER of Burlington of whose will Thomas BOWLBY (6), John's father, became executor in 1727. After carefully studying John's will, Harriet STRYKER-RODDA, a leading expert on early New Jersey genealogical history today, wrote her opinion in a letter of 10 Nov. 1981, that the wife of John was Mary LANING: 'That will proves without a doubt his relationship and family name of his wife Mary, for the executors were wife Mary and friend Joseph LANING, witnesses Edward LANING, Isaac LANING and Altiye LANING. A wife's interests in an estate in such a rural area as Mansfield-Woodhouse were normally protected by having her relatives party to its settlement if any were living nearby."

But, many other well respected historical researchers have also left us their opinions.

Perhaps a source of suggesting Mercer as Mary's maiden name may have come from DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY, VOLUME XXIII. CALENDAR OF NEW JERSEY WILLS, VOL. I. 1670-1730 page 316

1727 Aug. 26. MERCER, Josiah, late of Edmington, Co. of Middlesex, Great Britain, now of Burlington, gentleman; will of. Wife Sarah. Daughter Mary. Real and personal estate. Executor - Thomas BOWLBY, Witnesses - Tho: BARNES, Will'm ROBINSON, Daniel MESTAYER. Proved September 5, 1727.

1727 Sept. 5. Inventory of the personal estate, L60.5, incl. 18 moydores, 2 half moydores, 1/2 guinea, 2 small gold rings, in all 139 pwt. and 18 gr. at 5sh. 6 per pwt. L38.8.7 1/2, money in copper pennies L4, a silver watch and steel seal and chain L5, a silver tobacco box and pipe stopper L1.5; made by Thos. HUNLOKE and Tho. BARNES.

______ _____, MERCER, 1 _______. Part of will of , mentions a will executed in Great Britain and left in the Custody of wife Sarah. Leaves real property in America to the wife and daughter Mary and appoints Thomas BOWLBY as executor; used as wrapper of another (EDDINGTON, 1727) will.

1. Doubtless the Josiah MERCER whose will is given in the next preceding paragraph.


"iv. John BOWLBY, executor of father's Will in 1731; is said to have m. one Mary LANNING, dau. of some Joseph LANNING, in 1734, but evidence is not found. The Joseph LANNING named a co-executor in the Will of John BOWLBY was probably the testator of Bethlehem Twp., Hunterdon Co., N.J., 1814, q.v. in NJ Archives, 42:248. John BOWLBY d. testate in Mansfield Twp., Sussex Co., Nj, between 7 Dec 1779 and 31 Dec. 1782, appointing he wife Mary BOWLBY and friend Joseph LANING executors, and devising his estate to his children..."

He further mentions that the baptisms of some of their children, by the Church of England minister in Sussex Co., N.J. are found in his register, published in the Penna. Magazine of Hist. and Biog., vol. 12.

But, on 23 Nov 1972, William M. LEFFINGWELL sent a draft of his article BOWLBY to Janis PAHNKE, (and she kindly has sent a copy to me...) From pg 3.

3. John, b. m Mary (MERCER ?)

As executor of his father's will, John BOWLBY was responsible for the family's right to land in West Jersey. He probably returned to England after his father's death, where he may have married Mary MERCER. He was back in the Province by 1735, when his first son, Samuel, was born."

We remain hopeful that we might yet uncover more definitive evidence by exploring both the LANING and MERCER genealogies. Other theories abound, such as Mary was first married to a MERCER or a LANING prior to her marriage to John, or that he was married to two different women by the name of Mary - first to a Mary MERCER, then to a Mary LANING. But, to date, none of these speculative theories are based upon any direct evidence that our Mary BOWLBY was related to either the MERCER or LANNING families.

He was probably the John S. who served as a private in September of 1814 from New Hampton, New Jersey. Some researchers have his middle initial as "L" but scrutiny of his grandfather's estate papers disclose that it was "S". Warren Co. deed of 16 NOV 1827 shows John S. BOWLBY and wife, Elizabeth, were then of Bethlehem Twp., Hunterdon Co. Colonel Herbert BOWLBY notes that he married Elizabeth CASTNER, but this was John R. BOWLBY born in 1824. John and Elizabeth apparently had at least 6 children: William, Sarah J., Hetty, Hamilton, and Robert M. Notes from the BOWLBY reunion of 1906 give the names of three: Stacy, David P., and Hamilton. Seven children have been identified in this family, but the 1840 census report of Warren Co. suggests there may have been others. In 1840, Stacy, Charles, Bartley, Alexander, and Alfred were living in Mansfield and of approximately the same age. Stacy used Charles, Bartley, and Alfred in naming his children, possibly after his brothers.
