Life

Mary Bowly was born in Cirencester in 1813 to Richard and Mary Bowly. She married John McWilliam Peters who was the vicar of Quenington and then Langford. Peters gave her efforts to writing and she wrote her hymns by the time she was thirty. She created a large history in seven volumes from the "point of creation to the start of Queen Victoria's reign", but her notability comes from her hymns.

Peters married John Peters at the age of 39 with a ceremony conducted by the Plymouth Brethren

Peters died in Clifton in 1856.
