Peter Rouw jnr is buried in Kensal Green Cemetery, as is his brother Henry.
Peter Rouw jnr married 3 times Anna unknown ( ?-1805) marriage date unknown, Patience Tew (1800-1849) marriage 1817 and Ann Rutt (1802-1862) marriage 1851.
I have confirmed 3 children to his first wife Anna (?) death 1805, Theodore George Frances Young Rouw 1793– before 1856, Louisa Sophia Rouw 1800- ? and Henrietta Eliza Rouw 1801-1802.
I hope you find some of this information helpful.
