    I think that like Morgans, Lowman's are a North Briton type, Birderfly. John Sears started making the point that Morgans, Gilkersons, and Lowmans were named by men in America all breeding fowl originating in the north of England. I am writing this from memory tho. This has been written about a lot on this site. Maybe Murphys started there but became so famous and associated with his name. Sears had a point, but the other side may be that we should call all Hatch just Hatch. That would not make sense. OTOH, the North Briton whitehackles probably remained more similar than the Hatch did.

    John Sears North Briton Whitehackles are still being bred by John Jr. Not sure if he sells or has any to sell. Mr Sears was one of the great breeders of his time. John Jr has the old breeding records that go back several decades. Can't do better than a Northern Whitehackle with that kind of history behind it.

    When Billy Lawman first came to this country he spelled his name Lohman. Then it became Americanized and was spelled Lowman. It must of been pronounced Lawman because that's spelling you see most. Through decades 3 families of White Hackles were made. Separated by spelling but all originally coming from the same source. The Lawmans were one of the families that made the North Britons. The Murphys were basicly Lawman as were the Groves. Morgans and Gleesons were Gilkersons who were lawmans.

    In 1858, George Gilkerson, an English farmer living in Cortland County, NY, imported some fowl from Cumberland, England from a man named Lawman a relative of Billy Lawman of New York State. Called North Britain at first and later known as Gilkerson Whitehackles.
