Ashley Bowen (1728 – 1813) was a ship rigger from Marblehead, Massachusetts. He went to sea at a young age, was a seaman in the Royal Navy and served at Quebec in 1759 with the famous explorer Captain James Cook. The fact that he did his writings and drawings is remarkable - that some of them survived is miraculous. Most of what exists was found on top of a rubbish heap that was ready to be hauled away to the town dump.
