I have detailed information about the following Lowcock family associated inventions and products.
- Lowcock Plough: a type of turnwrest plough (confirmed: related!)
- Lowcock’s Lemonade: a soft drink brand
- Lowcock Fuel Economiser: for fuel efficiency in steam engines
- Lowcock Razor: a straight razor, made by George Lowcock.
It’s possible that there is a family connection between the Lowcock Plough, Fuel Economizer and Lowcock Razor – you can read my notes here. I am absolutely not saying there is a connection, it’s very speculative. Help is needed!

If the Lowcock invention, brand, or product is not listed here that just means I don’t know about it yet! I’m more than happy to add it to this page.
