Bowles, Carington (1724-1793)
Carington Bowles was the son of John Bowles, to whom he was apprenticed in 1741, and with whom he was in partnership as John Bowles & Son, at the Black Horse, Cornhill, London, from 1752/1753. He later took over the business of his uncle, Thomas Bowles II, in St Paul’s Churchyard. It has been assumed that Carington moved to St Paul’s Churchyard in 1767 when Thomas II died, but the date 1766 appears with Carington’s name as publisher at St Paul’s Churchyard on a portrait of Lord Camden (Faber Junior, Chaloner Smith). When Carington died, the business passed to his son Henry Carington Bowles.
