|Gowan’s shipyard in Berwick started operating in Berwick in 1751 and in 1867 Arthur took over the yard. He upgraded the yard in 1874 and, in 1877 formed partnership with John Wilson and converted the yard to construct iron ships. However the shipbuilding industry in Berwick was starting to decline (probably due to the expansion of the railways) and in March 1879, the company went into liquidation and had to attempt to sell its assets to pay its debts.
In 1894 Elizabeth Margaret Gowan (29yo spinster of 47 Huskisson St Liverpool, daughter of Arthur Byram Gowan, shipbuilder, deceased) married James Brand McArthur (30yo analytical chemist) and that the marriage was witnessed by Arthur Byram Gowan.
