The Gow Family Gathering, previously scheduled to take place over the weekend of 3 to 4 October 2020, will now take place at a date yet to be determined. We made the decision to postpone the event due to the evolving situation with regard to COVID-19 in mid-July 2020.

The family gathering will be one of a number of events over two days to belatedly celebrate the Bicentenary of the Wilberforce Schoolhouse. All descendants of William Gow, the first master of the Schoolhouse, are invited to attend – we believe this will be the first ever “mass” gathering of his descendants.

We will keep you up-to-date with arrangements for the family gathering via occasional blog posts. We would also love to hear from you to find out where you fit in the family tree or perhaps you can help us solve the mystery of William’s origins. Please visit Gow history blog.
