John James Owen Baptist Minister of Sparkbrook near Birmingham
is mentioned in property deeds at Powys Archives B/D/JPO/17/1-14.
The deeds concern houses in the town of Brecon and the catalogue
names his wife Sarah Davies, father-in-law David Davies, cutler of the town
of Monmouth, and three of his sons John David (born 24 Nov 1835),
James Montgomery (born 26 Feb 1840) and Charles Carey (born 31 May
1844).  The wife Sarah died on 19 March 1866 and was buried at
Leicester cemetery.  The last entry is dated 17 July 1867 when the
property was sold by John James Owen.

The catalogue (Powys Archives B/D/JPO/17/1-14) has many more details
and can be seen at :

David Davies the father-in-law was buried 19 Feb 1835 age 92 at Brecon
and his will and probate at the National Library can be seen at :

The will (BR/1835/2) is dated 22 June 1833 and names his spinster
daughter Sarah executrix, but named Sarah wife of John James Owen on
the probate grant dated 20 Feb 1835. Powys archives has a copy of the
marriage cert which its catalogue dates 31 July 1877, probably an
error.

B/D/JPO/17/10 Marriage certificate (copy 1866) of John James Owen of
p. St Mary’s, Brecon, and Sarah Davies of Swansea, p. Swansea. 31 July
1877
