You need to put your request on the Caernarvonshire board as they are on that, the towns are not on Anglesey

While researching my Owen/s, my grandfather had me baffled. On my parents marriage cert, he was William Owen, my father was William Owen, but the next two children were Owens. So I sent a letter to Llangefni register office to see what I could find out. I knew his year of birth. So I asked for a look up of William Owen, July 1910, parents Edward John Owen and Mary Owen nee Jones. Got a shock when they kindly phoned me and said no William Owen with those parents, back to the drawing board I said, she said no, we have a Willie Owens with Edward John Owens and Mary, nee Jones. Think my family need to work out of they are Owen or Owens lol xxx
I am researching the following names.....Owen/s-Holyhead, Rimmer/Lewis-West Derby, Wood/s/Hayter-Toxteth

Hello, I think (I hope) I've traced my great grandfather, Griffith Owen, back to Llanfaethlu. He was born in 1846/7, according to the 1901 census.

I haven't done any Anglesey research before so if anyone's about it would be lovely to 'meet' you.

I am seeing so many familiar names here that it's uncanny.. Griffith Owens, Owen Owens are two that I had hoped would make it easier to follow the clues.. Not so.

Here's another one: Solomon Owens, who appears with these others over several generations.

Does anyone have a family where all these names occur?
Mosley; Pugh; Thorpe; Webster; Hill; Ibberson; Nicholson; Moody; Maxfield; Newbold; Lee; Adams; Walker; Tesh; Barnes; Brittlebank; Cowlishaw; Smethurst; Alsibrook

For Pascal:
Here are the Aber baptisms you have mentioned:

-  13/07/1817   Owen Owens  son of   Owen Griffith, Farmer + Ann Davies of Pentre Wern
                        Owen and Ann were married 2/6/1804


-   29/11/1829   Owen    son of Owen Owens, Farmer   + Ellen Roberts of Wig Bach.
                        Owen and Ellen were married 17/10/1828

These 2 Owen Owens are not related.
You need to be aware that In Aber the patronymics system was used for many years, where the son would take his father's Christian name to be his surname.

I am studying Owens in both Aber and on Anglesey: at Llandegfan, Llanddona, Llansadwrn, Penmynydd, Menai Bridge and Braint
