  • Note:
    Edward owen was born in Bangor and baptised in Conwy in northern Wales in 1825. He married Elizabeth Evans in the St. David's Church of England in Liverpool on 2 January 1850. The wedding certificate records both people as being of 'full age', Edward was a labourer and a widower and Elizabeth was a spinster. Their residences at the time of marriage were Scotland Road and Park St Liverpool respectively. Their fathers names and occupations were recorded as 'Edward Owens, labourer' and James Evans, Joiner'. The wedding was witnessed by a Francis Howeth and a Maria Owens where they, and the bride and groom, signed the certificate with a 'mark'.

    Shipping records show that an Edward Owen and an E. Owen arrived at Port Phillip on the LORD STANLEY in January 1852. Maureen Gates believes that the couple emigrated to Australia on the WANATA which sailed from Liverpool on 9 June 1852 and arrived in Melbourne in October. The ship's manifest shows Edward to be a farmer aged 28 years and Elizabeth was aged 34 years.

    It seems that Edward may have remarried after Elizabeth's death. Roger McKee has pointed us to a marriage certificate for an Edward Owen and Mary Ann Ward who were married at St Augustine's Church of England at Inglewood on 27 October 1904. Edward was 80 years old with four children all living and had been widowed on 21 June 1894. Both Edward and Mary were living at Kingower. Edward was said to have been born at 'LLanbutno' in North Wales, he was a miner by profession and his parents were Edward Owen, a labourer, and Elizabeth Evans. Mary was 66 years old, came from Sydney and had been widowed on 23 March 1890. She had nine children, two of whom had died, and her parents were George Coffier, a stone mason, and Ellen Bailey. Both Edward and Mary signed their wedding certificate with a cross. Edward's second marriage is confirmed by his death certificate (see below).

    The Kingower cemetery records register both Edward (buried 12 May 1908, aged 84 years) and Elizabeth Owen (1893, 75 years). They also show that a Mary Owen, an adult, was buried there in 1921 (this was most likely Edward's second wife).

    Edward's death certificate, which was informed by his son Edward James, indicates that Edward died of senile decay at Kingower on 12 May 1908 and was buried at the local cemetery the following day. The ceremony was administered by Ernest Victor Coates of the Church of England and was witnessed by Edward James Owen and Robert 'Leoned' Owen (the latter is probably Edward James' son, Robert Lemuel). Edward was said to have been born at 'Carnarvon' in Wales and had been 56 years in Victoria. He was said to have been first married in Wales when he was 19 years old (his wife's name was 'not known') and secondly to Mary Ann Ward a widow at Inglewood. He had no children by his second marriage and four by his first: Edward James (55), Elizabeth Ann (53), John Richard (50) and William Robert (48).
