Agree on looking at it again that it is definitely Alt Street

Just back from a long weekend and found your messages, RTLass! 

The information you found is extremely helpful and I can't wait to tell my elderly relative what you found.  Not just the baptism record, but you went to further trouble and traced the record of the marriage in another Church! 

I am so very, very grateful to you for doing the research.  You are truly a star!  Thank you.

Could it be "John" as the first name?

No information on his extended family BUT the entry for his son - in the same book I referred to - is as follows:

"OWEN, Hugh
Bangor.  High street 1845-1933.  Son of Griffith Owen, Llanrwst.  Set up in business in Llanidloes about 1868, but moved to Bangor about 1874 (information from his grandson, B. Idloes Owen).
Watchcase paper endorsed 1874 in the Museum of Welsh Life, St. Fagans.  Longcase clocks and gold watch hall-marked 1882 known."

Note who the information came from, and the family connection.

Extract from "Wales Clocks & Clockmakers" by William Linnard:

Llanrwst.  Denbigh Street.  1818-1902.  Father of Hugh Owen of Bangor. Set  up in business ikn 1842.  Two watchcase papers endorsed 1868 and 1874 in Museum of Welsh Life, St. Fagans.  Watch dated 1888 known.  Over thirty longcase clocks recorded.  (see Brown, Clockmakers of Llanrwst, pp 134-5)"

BTW There are other Owen Clockmakers mentioned in this book.

Oh thank you ever so much for your kind offer.  If you could do that look up for me that would be great.  But if not, please don't worry.  It can wait until I can get up to Newcastle later in the year.
