This pedigree was initially drawn up to show how Phœbe Bown was related to Dame Sarah Paxton as it is thought that Sarah possibly paid for Phœbe's gravestone. Phœbe was impoverished at the time of her death. It also shows the relationship between the two women and the two James Bowns, father and son, who were clock makers of some note in Matlock and who also owned the Crown Inn. It also, hopefully, corrects slightly inaccurate information contained in some handwritten pedigrees that were drawn up in the early to mid nineteenth century.

The chart begins in the top left hand corner with John and Troth Boune and their two children Samuel and Mary and focuses the descendants of Samuel and his wife Rachel, nee Chadwick. It is based on evidence from documents, wills and other probate information, parish registers and census returns. Whilst there are earlier Bounes/Bown(e)s in Matlock, their information is not included here although links to information about them can be found below.
