Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
c. 1653-60 -- Judge-Advocate to the fleet
1660-?4 -- Clerk for the Chatham Chest (a fund for disabled seamen)
1663-72 -- Judge Advocate-General
-- Robert Latham's Companion volume (10) to the Latham & Matthews edition of the diary. The year information for Fowler's Chatham Chest post, with its odd lack of information for one digit of the year, is just as it is in the Companion volume (presumably it means some document was rendered illegible at one spot). The Companion volume has a very short article on the Chatham Chest on page 59.
Fowler once played the lute "when a young man," but he lost the use of his hand for some reason (Pepys's diary, 25 August 1660).
He was a friend of Will Hewer.
Fowler's son, possibly named Ludwig, was an apothecary. In 1657, a Ludwig Fowler was named a "freeman" of the Society of Apothecaries in London.
-- L&M volumes 1 (1660), 10 (Companion), 11 (Index)
