(01) John Bowden EDWARDS:

Although John was illegitimate, it is quite likely that his father was Edward Bowden whom his mother married shortly after John was baptized. This would explain why he was given the middle name, Bowden. Perhaps John's parents were intending to marry before the birth. However, John might well have been premature as it was necessary to have him baptized privately which would indicate a sense of urgency.

(02) Grace BOWDEN:
Residence: 28 DEC 1813, Stockley, Highampton, Devon 30

Grace was baptized on the same day that her father was buried.
