Note on Wife: Harriett OWEN (1) - shared note

Known as "Tet". Came from a family of undertakers (according to family story).Apparently there was a family connection with the Owens. Tet died around 1959 (according to Glyn Roberts)In the Marriage indexes of St Catherine's House, she is listed [if it is the correct entry] as " Harriett Owen".Probably Harriett Owen:In 1901 Census there is a Harriett Owen daughter of John and Anne Owen aged 16 - therefore born in Shrewsbury circa1885.Her father, born circa 1841 (age 60) in Condover, Salop is listed as a joiner (a blacksmith in 1881 census), and her mother Anne listed as born in Ruyton circa 1843. There are two elder brothers, both joiners and both born inShrewsbury:Edward Owen born circa 1881, and Charles Owen born circa 1883.[This would be confirmed by purchas of marriage certificate - so far not done - 2003!]

Note on Wife: Harriett OWEN (2)

Had a niece called Bunty Owen - a spinster - lived at Beacalls Lane during 1930s 40s poss 50s and 60s16
