I started researching the Lowcock surname because, being candid, it’s not that common or famous, so there’s no easy to find facts available. I am by no means an expert, more a very amateur enthusiast. I do occasionally (like once or twice a year) play around on Ancestry.com but that’s about it.
I update the pages as I learn more information, so please bookmark this page and come back for the latest findings (or get notified of pages updates using VisualPing). If you’re interested, this page was last updated Last updated: July 8, 2017 at 17:07 pm

I don’t claim to be famous or important, but if you are interested in me I do hold US Patent 20060101492, Mobile Television Reminder Alert. In answer to your unspoken question, no I am not rich and did not make money from it.

Mike McColl-Jones, an Australian comedy writer, was kind enough to thank me in a book he wrote about Australian TV personality and comedian Graham Kennedy AO. I had the good fortune to work for a television broadcaster for a few years, which is where I met Mike.
