Edward Bowles

Categories: Gardens / Agriculture

Horticulturalist. Born Edward Augustus Bowles but professionally known as E. A. Bowles.

Born at his family's home, Myddelton House near Enfield, where he later created a garden, now open to the public along with a museum devoted to him and his work. He also collected architectural fragments and unwanted stones of all sorts, which still decorate the gardens and intrigue the visitor - see William III and George III, and there are some stones possibly from London Bridge.

The house was named after Hugh Myddelton and the family were involved in the New River Company. Vice-President of the Royal Horticultural Society from 1926 until his death.

Parks and Gardens confirm that he died at Myddelton House so we have added him to our short list of people known to have died in the same place where they were born.

Great uncle of Andrew Parker Bowles.
