Robert Owens 1824-1898

1824 . Robert Owens was baptised Llangelynin on 11/4/1824 to David Owens, labourer, & Mary Thomas : address Parlous?? -FMP. Date is 11/4/1826 on FS! Birthplace Llanllechid on all censuses except 1891, but his m.c. gives Llangelynin . Calls his first son David, & his 1849 mc gives his father as David Owens. Llangelynin is ~16k E of Tal-y-Bont, S of Conwy. Trouble is there is also a Tal-y-bont S of Llangelynin and of Conwy!

1841C. A Minefield!! Robert Owens 20 - no other Owens - in Llandegai

 

1849. Roberts Owens, labourer, of Llangelynin, married Mary Jones of Tal y Bont on 30/3/1849 in Llanllechid - FS. This almost certainly our Robert. His father David Owens, labourer, hers John Edward,- odd!, no Jones, but maybe this was a mistake - labourer . Image on FMP. Llangelynin seems also to be part of Bangor, but have yet to find it on a map - as well as the one, and another Tal-y-Bont!, ~5 k SSW of Conway

There are 7 Mary Jones around the right age in Llanllechid in 1841C !!

1849. David Owen could be born Bangor Mar/Sep 1849 or David Owens Bangor Jun 1849!! Yet to find his baptism

1851. Elizabeth Owens born Bangor Mar 1851 - this b.c. would give me her mother's Mary's maiden name. But also a birth reg Bangor Dec 1850, but census entry actually gives her aged 1 month, so must be the former . But now fairly sure her name is Mary Jones . Yet to find Elizabeth's baptism, but there is one in June 1851 to different parents- worrying!

1851C. Robert Owen, 26, ag.labourer, is living with his wife Mary and 2 children at Glan Bethlehem, Llanllechid , Bangor, Caernarvonshire . All b. Llanllechid

~1854. John Owen is born to Robert & Mary. No seeming baptism on FMP which seems to have all Caernarvonshire records

1855. Mary Owens is born to Robert & Mary. No seeming baptism on FMP which seems to have all Caernarvonshire records

Thus Robert & Mary do not appear to have had any of their children baptised
