  • Notes 
    • On his brother Edward's 1901 census return it gives 1840 as the year of his immigration to Canada from Ireland.
      On son John's marriage record, he names Samuel as a 'Quarryman'. Elsewhere he is a 'farmer'
      My research that I had done by Ulster Ancestry showed that the most likely place that the Lowthers could have come from was the townland of Lisdillon in Clondermot Parish, Londonderry County, Ireland.
      For details see http://capebretonroots.com/ward/lowthers
      There was an Edward Louthers in Clondermot on the Irish Flax Growers list of 1796
