William may not have been the father of Margaret BLOWER, but is an educated guess. See the notes on Margaret BLOWER's record.
There are no baptismal records for a William (or Mary) BLOWER/BLOOR in Birmingham. Longer further out, there are several possible baptisms for William BLOWER in a 50 mile radius of Birmingham (as follows) however none of these had daughters called Mary so are unlikely to be correct.
- 8 Feb 1735 in Madeley, Shropshire by Richard and Elisabeth BLOWER
- 17 Jul 1738 in Great Dalby, Leicestershire by Thomas and Hannah BLOWER (twin of Edward)
- 25 May 1740 in Hinckley, Leicestershire by Jonathan and Sarah BLOWER
- 9 Apr 1744 in Stone, Staffordshire by William and Sarah BLOWER of Stone
William was a button maker, and may have migrated into Birmingham before raising a family. Or his baptism records may have been lost. Either way the trail has gone cold.
