Allison Gowling is a native of Haldimand County, who was born on his parents' dairy farm in May 1957. Allison's father, Norman was a well-known dairy farmer, Holstein breeder and also a Mason and a Past Master (1965) of St. John's Lodge #35 in Cayuga. Allison's Mother, Ethel was a well-recognized and fondly remembered elementary school teacher who taught in many one-room schoolhouses in and around Haldimand County as well as supply teaching for many years. There are still a few of her former students still around Haldimand County that recall Ethel's teaching abilities as well as her quick hand at classroom discipline. Allison attended elementary school in Cayuga at J. L. Mitchener in Cayuga, and also at Seneca Central in the suburbs of Empire Corners and later Cayuga Secondary School.

On his mother's side, Allison is a sixth generation United Empire Loyalist. Allison has been extremely fortunate to not only has been a witness to history in his time, but also being able to learn about local history, not only at his parents' knee, but on the knees of Allison's numerous relatives (I mean he has a LOT of cannot keep their names straight without a program!). In 1999, Allison was initiated, passed and raised into Masonry at St. Andrew's Masonic Lodge #62 and was Worshipful Master at St. Andrew's in 2006. Since then, Allison has served on several District teams, the Craft Association of the Hamilton Districts, the Masonic Past Masters' Association of the Hamilton Districts and the Grand Lodge Library Committee.

They have two adult sons, Gregory and Kyle, both who have joined their father in the Craft.
