Roy Bowers. He founded Tubal Cain/1734 Wicca. He was initiated into
Gardnerian Wicca, but then later left and claimed to have been
descended from a long line of Wiccans, just like Alex Sanders did. He
too fabricated a story of coming from a line independent from
Gardner’s, called by the names "The 1734 tradition", "The Clan of Tubal
Cain" and “The Royal Windsor Cuveen”, implying a false connection to
the Royal family.
of his history is cloudy and somewhat contradictory. His parents were
actually both Methodists, and didn’t seem to even have an interest in
the occult. He claimed the source of his Wiccan lineage was a
Great-great grandfather, other times he implied an "Aunt Sally"
taught him Wicca, other times an uncle on his mother’s side but there’s
no proof any of them were involved in the occult or Wicca. Then in
contradiction to all of this, he claimed his mother (who wasn’t a
Wiccan but a Methodist, mind you) had taught him just as her
grandmother had taught her. In yet another claim he supposedly had
ancestors who had been executed for witchcraft, but likewise this has
also not been proven. Obviously, he's lying and made the whole thing up!
For someone who is supposedly a hereditary Wiccan there isn't much of
anything original to Cochrane's "Tradition", either. Tubal Cain is a
Biblical figure, found in Genesis, a strange name choice for a Neopagan
Cochrane later renamed Tubal Cain Wicca "The 1734 Tradition". Cochrane
explained "1734" was a numerological reference to "YHVH", the
Judeo-Christian God, also a strange choice for Neopagans.
Cochrane described the Wiccan god as the goat-footed God of fire, craft
and death, while the goddess ruled life, fate and destiny, with a
horned solar god as their child, sounding as though it were inspired
from Crowley’s Liber Al Vel Legis.
There is no official Book of Shadows in 1736 Wicca, as there are in
other Wiccan “traditions”. The closest thing they have are Cochrane's
muddled and rambling letters which are treated as sacred literature by
his followers. His coven always worked out of doors, and wore black
hooded robes while dancing and chanting around a fire in the center of
The Summer Solstice is the
day the Wiccan horned god symbolically dies. On June 21st, 1966,
Cochrane committed suicide by ingesting Bella Donna leaves. Since his
suicide occurred on the day of the Neopagan holiday (not unlike
Hitler’s suicide) of the Summer solstice, there is little doubt that it
was done as an act of human sacrifice...and even all Wiccans

successor group called “The Regency” was created after Cochrane’s
death, intending to have his 8 year old son take the reigns when he
became an adult. However, his sone declined upon reaching adulthood,
and seems to want no part of it or Wicca.
Robert Cochrane was a liar who committed suicide for a senseless lie.
