Note on Husband: John OWEN (1) - shared note

Is it possible this John was related to Joseph Owen, who married Lucy Deakin's (nee Coles) daughter, Agnes Anne.

 

Both John Owen, and Joseph (and Joseph's family) all were born in Kinnerley.

 

The 1881 census has John and his first wife, Mary, living at Weston Wharf, Baschurch, Salop. [RG11/2666/93/19].

 

The 1891 census has John and his new wife, Lucy, and family at Vine Buildings. [RG12/2114/64].

 

The Register of Electors shows John Owen still at Vine Buildings, Ruyton IX Towns in 1896, but not in 1900.

Note on Husband: John OWEN (2)

The following is an intriguing quote from "The Shropshire Village Book" published in 1988 by the Shropshire Federation Of Women's Institutes - in the section referring to Weston Lullingfields:

 

"Within living memory a tailor used to sit cross legged in his cottage and a woman and her two daughters ran a laundry at Dumpling Hall - named from the round tied-up bundles of washing."

 

Could this have been John Owen with Lucy, Agnes and Mary?
