About the Knowles surname

If you are researching the Knowles surname, please post here with information on which lines you're tracing and how to contact you.

From Patricia Knowles:

I'm interested to gain inforrmation about Charles Knowles who came to Australia in the late 1800s with his wife and family. He was a stonemason and I believe he was encouraged to come here to work on the Central Railway buildings and other government jobs. I believe he had family in the Manly area and lived at one time in Newtown. He settled finally in the Blakehurst area in southern Sydney. He is my husbands great grandfather and I am keen to obtain any information about his siblings etc.

From Ashley Odell:

I am a descendant of the Knowles family of the Bahamas. My earliest known Knowles ancestor for whom I have good details is James Knowles, Sr., son of John Knowles of Eleuthera, The Bahamas. If you descend from a Bahamian Knowles, it's all but certain that James is among your ancestors. I'm interested in finding other Bahamian Knowles family members and also continuing to research how they arrived in the Bahamas. I can be contacted here on Geni through direct messaging. Thanks!
