76 The town of Bowen in Queensland was named after Sir George.

Sir George Ferguson Bowen, unlike previous Australian military and naval governors, was trained in law, classics and administration. A noted intellectual and author, Bowen later became Fellow of Brasenose College in Oxford prior to a career as Queensland's first Governor.

During 1847 and 1851, Bowen worked as the political secretary to the government of the Ionian Islands where he married Countess Diamantina Roma, daughter of Count Candiano di Roma, President of the Senate.

A strong supporter of Liberal Prime Minister, William Gladstone, Bowen was appointed Governor of the newly separated colony of Queensland, arriving on 10 December 1859. Since Queensland did not have a substantive government at the time, Bowen ruled with Colonial Secretary, R. G. W. Herbert who later became Queensland's first Premier in 1860.

In March 1873 Bowen was transferred to Victoria (Australia) as Governor of Victoria,and later arrived in Mauritius ( 4 April 1879) to serve as 13th Governor of the colony until 9 December 1880. On 30 March 1883, Bowen became Governor of Hong Kong .In 1887 he resigned his post,due to failing health.
