Note on Wife: Sarah Ann OWEN (1)

My husband is connected with the Owen family and has Sarah Ann's Death Certificate, which shows she died on 14th April, 1950. She was married to Edward Joseph Tunnah, my husband's Grandfather. My husband remembers his grandmother Sarah as a very old lady, living with his family at Chirk Bank. She died when he was about two and a half and is buried in Weston Rhyn Churchyard.1

Note on Wife: Sarah Ann OWEN (2)

... our Sarah Ann Owen is the daughter of Pryce (Price) Owen. We have his Grandmother's marriage lines - 6th December 1886 - Sarah Ann Owen (18 years of age) married Edward Joseph Tunnah (23) at the Parish Church of St Martin's, in the County of Salop. Sarah is recorded as being resident in St. Martins at the time of her marriage, and Pryce Owen (written Pryce) is recorded as her father, Profession - Labourer. Upon looking, we also have Sarah's Death Certificate, dated 14th April, 1950, aged 80 years.

 

We have no photographs.

 

Edward and Sarah lived at Rose Cottage, Oaklands Road, Chirk Bank, which was built for them in 1896.

 

We believe that Sarah was related to the 'Owens of Pant' who worked a narrow boat on the Montgomery Canal and from whom my husband's mother was supposed to have begged a bit of rope for skipping, as it went by the bottom of the garden at Chirk Bank ...1
