Carington Bowles (1724 - 1793)

RA Collection: People and Organisations

Son of John Bowles (1701?-1779) 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 or 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, 52.II). When Carington died the business passed to his son (Henry) Carington Bowles. [Source: British Printed Images to 1700 Publishers & Printsellers database]
