In 1489 John Bowey held Dunbarton Castle
against the armies of the new King James IV but was later pardoned for doing so. Jerome
Bowie was master of the royal wine cellar for King James VI from 1585 to 1589. The name
frequently occurs in records of Stirling and Dunblane in the 17th and 18th centuries.
