This looks like the birth reg of John and Elizabeth's son. If you get the birth cert. it should show his mothers maiden name.

Thanks for your valuable research.
This is the John Cowling that I am looking for.


John married Elizabeth Conway daughter of Martin Conway a soldier of the 47th Regiment
stationed in Montreal. Martin at that time was married to Mary Ann Downing (his 2nd wife).

Now I am trying to find Johns family.

I think his father may have been one Parkin Cowling b 1821 married to Ann b 1825 (or possibly 1828?)

Correction - Martin at that time was married to Mary Ann Dowling.

The above pots are based on you theory that Perkin/Parkin Cowling was John's father.
I would suggest you get the Marriage Cert for John and Elizabeth to prove Parkin is John's father.

If Parkin is correct I would then get the marriage cert for Parkin and Ann Dobson to see if Joseph was Parkin's father

Well I got the marriage certificate for John & Elizabeth Cowling and Johns father is registered as Ian King Cowling.
So this certificate was money well spent.
Thanks wizard28
