  • Name: Bartholomew Owens
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 24 Aug 1619 in Steventon Parish, Berkshire, Eng
  • Death: 31 Jan 1677 in Southwarke Parish, Surry, Virginia, United States
  • Note: ==Biography== The earliest record of [http://kinnexions.com/smlawson/owens.htm Bartholomew Owen] in America is 1658, but the related Court records in Surry Co., VA from 1658 to late 1660 indicate he was probably well established had some sort of dispute with Thomas GRAY, an early Planter. The Court found that Bartholomew was guilty of scandalous and defamatory language in the case.On Oct. 17, 1659, Bartholomew served on an Inquest Jury in an accidental death. He was a Church Warden of Southwark Parish in 1661. In a land sale of Mar. 1, 1661 and cattle sale of Apr. 1, 1662, Bartholomew was called Gentleman. On Nov. 3, 1663, Bartholomew lost a suit and forfeited 2129 pounds of tobacco, and in 1664 he was co-surety on a King's bond of 10,000 pounds of tobacco. These and other land and Court records between 1658 and 1670 indicate that Bartholomew OWEN held considerable wealth in land and commodities and was called upon to serve the community in positions of trust and responsibility. Bartholomew may have been married first on May 9, 1641 in England to Ann CHARLES, by whom he had no known children. Bartholomew's wife is named as Joanna in a conveyance dated Jan. 3, 1670, and in the Sep. 9, 1674 sale of 150 acres in Surry Co., VA to William FOREMAN. A 648 acre land patent by Bartholomew on May 14, 1673, and a 1689 patent by Edmund JENNINGS including headrights for Robert OWEN, Jone OWEN and William OWEN, together the the absence of Bartholomew from Court records from early 1670 to mid 1673, suggests that the family may have made a trip to England during this time. Bartholomew granted a power of attorney to Nicholas Meriweather on Oct. 8, 1677, and on Jan. 31, 1677/8, Jone OWEN was granted administration of the estate of Bartholomew OWEN, deceased. The estate was inventoried and appraised at 30 pounds by Will FOREMAN and John MORING on Feb. 14, 1677 in Surrey Co., VA. Married Joanna about 1666. His father was Col. Thomas Owen abt 1615-1688, decent from Alfred the Great, an English King who lived prior to 900 A.D. He came from England Indiana 1632. Bartholomew bought 200 acres Indiana 1661. Father: Robert Owen b. 7 Nov 1583 in Steventon Parish, Berks, England Mother: Joane White b. 1583 in England Ann Charles (Wife) b. About 1624 in Southwarke Parrish, Surry m. 9 MAY 1641 in England; died Ca. 1642 in At Sea. "Bartholomew Owen was born in Steventon Parish, Berkshire, England, ca. 1619, and was christened on 24 August 1619. His parents were Robert Owen, born in Steventon Parish ca. 1583, christened 7 November 1583, and Joanne White, born in Steventon Parish ca. 1592, christened 20 July 1592. Robert was the son of Richard Owen, born ca. 1555 in England and Joanne Daniel, born ca. 1560. Bartholomew came to Surrey County, Virginia in the 1650's and married ca. 1663, Johanna Jennings, born ca. 1640 and died after 1693, believed to be the daughter of Edmund Jennings. There are four known children:Katherine (ca.1667-1719), Robert (ca. 1668-1717), William (ca. 1671-1752) and Thomas (ca. 1673-1744). Bartholomew died intestate ca. 1677 with the inventory and appraisal of his estate made on 14 February 1677, and filed in court on 17 January 1678. Johanna was appointed administrator of the estate (see inventory below). After Bartholomew's death, Johanna married Thomas Brooks, and moved with her two younger sons, William and Thomas, to James City, Virginia and then to Henrico County. After his arrival in Virginia, Bartholomew immediately made a name for himself. The Surrey County, Virginia 1652 - 1663 court records are full of his dealings and escapades. In 1658 he was involved in a fight with Thomas Gray, a prominent planter. A Suit was filed in Surrey County and several witnesses testified that they had heard Bartholomew Owen making many "disparaging, malicious and threatening remarks" against Gray. On 29 January 1658, the Court granted a continuance in the difference between Gray and Owen. On 5 September 1660, in Court held at Southwarke Parish for Surrey County, further evidence was introduced in the case. In a deposition, dated 16 August 1660, Robert Spenser, aged 30, son of Edmund Spencer, undersheriff of Surrey County, stated that he had heard Bartholomew, on several occasions and in various places speak very "scandulous" words against the Commissioners of Surrey County, saying he would never have justice done him in that Court." Further, both in James City and in Surrey County, Bartholomew had highly reviled Captain George Jordan, calling him "Raskell and Rogue" and "shouten Raskell" and several other such base terms. Spenser rebuked Owen for his "mullitious" words. Owen replied, swearing, "God Damm him, of that raskell" George Jordan. In the second deposition in James City, 19 August 1660, Roger Rawlins, aged 26, said that he heard Owen "disparrage" Captain Jordan and the Court, threatening him "publicky" in company saying "he longed to kick that man's arse." In September 1660, Mrs. Fortune Mills, a relative of the reviled Captain George Jordan, "deposeth" that Bartholomew Owen of Surrey County, hath several times, in her hearing, spoken "dispairaging and scandalous" words against the Commissioners and wholly against Captain Jordan saying "he never had justice done him in that Court." The court found Bartholomew guilty of scandalous and defamatory language and appointed Captain George Jordan to sue and prosecute the said Owen at the next Quarter Court with full power and authority to use all lawful means, for their consideration. Robert Stanton, the court clerk recorded this judgement, on 10 September 1660. Despite this verdict and the controversy, Bartholomew was apparently considered a man of some substance since he was referred to as a gentleman in the records. He was a Church Warden of Southwarke Parish Church, Surrey County, served on several juries and coroners juries, sold and bought land and appeared to have served as a cattle broker. Bartholomew owned a 648-acre plantation, but was far from being considered well off. He died intestate and his estate was valued at a modest 30 and probably, for inheritance tax purposes, was inventoried as follows: "one ould diseased horse and ould saddle and bridle, a bull, heyfer 12 years old, and a heifer calf, 6 shoates and 2 sows with 12 pigs." His household goods "comprised a passell of ould pewter, 2 ould iron pots, 2 pair pot hooks, 2 spits, and a pair of ould tongs." Furniture included "2 very ould thin feather beds and boulsters and 1 very ould, woolen cloth blankit, 2 tables and a fourme (bench) very ould, and 1 ould chest without a lock. A parcel of lumber and ould iron and 1 barrill of a gun and an unfixed lock and an ould rifle" completed the inventory. Will Foreman and John Moring made the appraisal on 14 February 1677, Jone Owen also signed by mark."
