Early Origins of the Lowing family
The surname Lowing was first found in Westmorland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century where they held estates in that shire.
