December 15, Biography Samuel Bowly was born in and became one of the most influential Quakers of his generation. When he died inhis home town of Gloucester came to a standstill as thousands turned out to pay their respects. He was not only a much revered businessman in the town and a leader of the temperance movement, however, but more importantly was one of the prime movers, along with William Wilberforcein the abolition of slavery in the early years of the nineteenth century.
The Great Reform Act of swept away many of the old proslavery MPs and the final emancipation of slaves in British colonies was effected in Samuel Jr married Jane Dearman Shipley inthe daughter of John Shipley of Shaftesbury and they had seven children including the third daughter, Martha, who was to marry Frederick Cash in Jane died inafter a lingering illness and considerable suffering, as Fred Cash records in his memoirs.
A group of Quakers was established at Tetbury from the mid s … who were visited several times by George Fox. Many of the Quakers were persecuted and imprisoned.
But in the s a meeting house was built adjoining the Bristol Road south of the town and the meeting flourished and by the early 18th century there were many leading members, most of whom were tradesmen including a cheese factor Jacob Wilkins Victoria County History, A History of the County of GloucesterVol 11, Eds Ralph B Pugh and N M Herbert,pp.
However, commercial success was never his ultimate aim, as like many Quaker businessmen, Bowly was also a very caring individual and believed in helping his fellow men, which in his case meant providing cheap and universal education.
Putting his money where he thought it could help most, he became one of the founders of the ragged schools, not just in Gloucester but throughout the country.
Perhaps, however, he will be principally remembered for his indomitable campaigning for the antislavery campaign. It was this inborn love of freedom that brought him to the front during the later phase of the Anti-Slavery agitation.
It was in that he led a deputation to Downing Street, where they discussed with the Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, the cruelties exercised towards the slaves under the apprenticeship system introduced in In he started a Society called the Central Negro Emancipation Committee and they made yet another deputation to Downing Street and this time managed to get a bill for the abolishment of slavery introduced into the House of Commons.
The first was defeated but undaunted, they pushed another forward which was eventually carried by three votes against strong opposition. Even in old age he was still fighting this cause, as The Gloucester Journal observed: It was not because these slaves were merely British subjects that we fought against slavery; it was because the weak and oppressed had nobody to take up their Cause.
I am glad to say the English sentiment ever has been and I believe ever will be, in favour of protecting the weak against the strong. I have no faith in the regulation of the sale of strong drink.
I think we want to get rid of it, and so I think with regard to slavery; that instead of regulating this Slave labour — a sort of forced labour — the best way and the only safe way, is to get rid of it altogether…. So, may we go on, taking courage that the God of all mercy will bless our labours ultimately to the freeing of all the world from this gross iniquity.

During the Crimean war, Mr Bowly, retaining all his old courage, braved extreme unpopularity, with John Bright and others in protesting this iniquity. Never as long as memory lasts, shall I forget a scene when Mr Bowly stood upon the platform to plead for righteousness and peace, confronted by a wild and howling mob of men, headed by some leading citizens.The University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts Course Guide for Fall Academic Term contains course descriptions.
