Margaret Jane ShelbyJohn and Sarah’s third child was Margaret Jane Shelby. Margaret was born in Rumney, Monmouthshire in 1860 [Abergavenny, 1860, 4th qtr]; she was 5 months old in the 1861 census. In 1881 she was living with her parents in Pen Y Gelli near Minera and she was a milliner, a profession she followed throughout her life. She and her sister Sarah latterly ran a millinery business above a shop in Henblas Street, Wrexham.
In 1901 Margaret, still a milliner was living at 2 End Spring Road, Wrexham with her sister Sarah, her niece Miriam Labron and the adopted Henry Huband, who was then a whitesmith. Margaret never married. It was she who, I am told, claimed that her Owen line came from the Owens of Penrhos in Anglesey. She later lived in a house called
Penrhos in Spring View Road, next door to her niece, Gwen (daughter of Louisa), and family; her brother Timothy Morgan Owen Shelby owned both these houses. She was living at 37 Spring Road, Rhosddu, Wrexham, when she died on 28 February 1932, aged 71. Her brother Timothy was executor of her will.
