ROWBOTHAM   from Anston, Yorkshire.

This page is about the ROWBOTHAM surname, descendants and connected families from Hugh Rowbotham of Anston, Yorkshire.   The four main spellings ROWBOTHAM, ROWBOTHOM, ROWBOTTAM and ROWBOTTOM are found fairly interchangeably, because the Vicar or Registrar tended to use his own spelling.   The first spelling has been used here for simplicity, unless it is known that the person concerned used an alternative.   Details of the first two or three generations are uncertain.   Details of living people are not shown without their permission.    Any details that you can add, especially corrections will be gratefully received.
