My Great great grandmother was Ann Owen, born 1860 in Llanfihangel. She married Owen Rowlands in 1879.

I have drwan a blank and can find no birth records for Ann, so I can't trace her parents. I'd really appreciate it if anyone has any information. Many thanks.

I'm a decendent of Hugh Owen and Martha Owen, Hafarch, Llantrisant. I've had some trouble finding this family due to patronymics.

My direct ancestor was Edward Owen Hughes, the son of Hugh and Martha Owen. His sibblings Hugh, William, Elizabeth and Ann have retained Owen as a surname. However, the other brother Owen Hugh has become Owens.

Hey, it's all fun isn't it!!

I'm the great great great grand daughter of Elizabeth Owen 1799 from Amlwch.  She married James Potter 1793 a copper smelter from St.Helens, Lancashire.  I haven't been able to find who Elizabeths parents were.  I know Elizabeth and James married at St.Eleths church, Amlwch in January 1821.  As you say there are so many possibles.

I'm also trying to sort out Owen from Llangefni.  In this particular case I have hit a brick wall with Benjamin Owen b. 1821 wife Elizabeth Griffith.  My tree is just a mass of all the Welsh names you can think of.  Their daughters were :- Catherine Owen b 1841 Llangefni, Elinor  b 1843, Jane 1861 and Elizabeth 1863.  Anybody recognise them?

Papercutter, :)

I read your posting with interest-my exhusbands family Owens came from Llanfaethlu on Angelsey.
As far as I can remember part of the family ran the Inn ,I think it was the Black/Red Lion??  in Llanfaethlu, I was told -because their were so many Owen Owens,that part of the family just started using the name Williams !!
My daughter who lives in Caernarfon told me recently that a cousin of my ex who now lives in Portdinorwic has been doing family research,perhaps if you are interested and there maybe a family connection-I could try to find out  his address.
Good Luck it confused me years ago-lol :)
