On this page, you’ll find details about Lowcock Genealogy and Lowcock Family History. As well notable historic figures that had the Lowcock surname.
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 are looking to research Lowcock genealogy, the Lowcock family name, Lowcock family history, or just Lowcock history please read the content on these pages. From my research, the only direct relationship to me I have found is Henry Lowcock, the inventor of the Lowcock Plough. All of the Lowcock Family Tree History research and relationship to me is at the end of the plough page.
It’s possible that there is a family connection between the Lowcock Plough, Fuel Economizer and Lowcock Razor – you can read my family tree research notes here. I am absolutely not saying there is a connection, it’s very speculative.
