Jonathan Lowry

Jonathan Lowry is the son of Henry and Elizabeth (Wyate) Lowry, natives of England, who came to America about twenty-two years ago, and reside in Windsor, Ontario, at the present time.

Mr. Lowry was born December 29, 1856, at Modbury, England, and there lived ten years, when he commenced sailing, and since that time he has spent the greater part of his life on the water. He went first as boy on the coaster Trangers, from Salcombe, England, remaining on her about eighteen months, after which he acted as seaman several months on the Pembrokeshire of the West Indies line. He then entered the English navy and shipped on the Impregnable, from which he was transferred to the Swiftsure, stationed on the Mediterranean Sea. At the close of his naval service he came to New York and shipped with Captain Cummings as second mate on the Young America, running between New York, Liverpool and San Francisco, and after leaving this boat in London shipped as seaman on the New Zealand trader Jessie Redmond, from which he went on the Corsica, running from London to the East Indies. During these years of adventure Mr. Lowry visited China, India, Africa, Australia and New Zealand, and many of the principal ports of other foreign countries, having seen a large number of the points of interest on the globe. In 1883 he came to Canada and settled in Windsor, Ontario, soon afterward accepting a position on the carferry Landsdowne, where he has since remained.

Mr. Lowry was married October 15, 1885 to Miss Emma Evans, of Goderich, Ontario, and they have had five children: Philip, Henry and Harry, who are attending school; Mary Louisa and George Evans, who are deceased; and Blanche Irene. Fraternally, Mr. Lowry is a member of the A. O. U. W. and the I. O. O. F., of Windsor.

Volume I

This version of Volume II is based, with permission, on the work of the great volunteers at the Marine Captains Biographies site. To them goes the credit for reorganizing the content into some coherent order. The biographies in the original volume are in essentially random order.

Some of the transcription work was also done by Brendon Baillod, who maintains an excellent guide to Great Lakes Shipwreck Research.
