The Cowleys from Derbyshire to Plettenberg Bay
Prior to the beginning of the 19th century, records of British families and family members, largely aside from nobility and clerics, were often limited and these were even more scant in the many British colonies such as South Africa.

It is against this background, and driven by a hankering to know the history of the Cowley family, that the author embarked on a 14-year project to research the history and the people associated with the Cowley family. The project culminated in this publication, which provides a valuable collection of information dating back several centuries. 

The book is comprised of 43 chapters under the following broad headings (see the downloadable Table of Contents for more information):
1. Background (4 chapters)
2. Our Cowley lineage - United Kingdom (14 chapters)
3. Our Cowley lineage - South Africa (12 chapters)

4. Children of Robert Cowley and Elizabeth Bloor (10 chapters)
5. Other Cowley families in South Africa (3 chapters)

The Cowleys from Derbyshire to Plettenberg Bay
Voor die begin van die 19de eeu was daar, behalwe vir die adelstand en geestelikes, relatief min inligting beskibaar oor Britse families en familielede - en dit was veral die geval in die vorige Britse kolonies soos Suid-Afrika.

Dit is teen hierdie agtergrond - en aangespoor deur sy hunkering om meer oor sy familiegeskiedenis te wete te kom - dat Gavin Cowley sy navorsing oor die Cowley familie se oorsprong en geskiedenis begin het. Die waardevolle inligting wat oor die projek se 14 jaar opgediep is, word in hierdie publikasie ten boek gestel. 

Die boek word in 43 hoofstukke verdeel onder die breë hoofde soos hieronder uiteengesit (sien die gedetaileerde aflaaibare Inhoudsopgawe):
1. "Background" (4 hoofstukke)
2. "Our Cowley lineage - United Kingdom" (14 hoofstukke)
3. "Our Cowley lineage - South Africa" (12 hoofstukke)

4. "Children of Robert Cowley and Elizabeth Bloor" (10 hoofstukke)
5. "Other Cowley families in South Africa" (3 hoofstukke)
