James Owen of Penrhos

and his descendants

Edward Denstone Vaughan Owen

William and Ethel’s youngest child, Edward Denstone Vaughan Owen was born on 22 November 1911 [Aberystwith 1911, 4th qt]. He enjoyed life and was a keen sportsman with a fine collection of shotguns and fishing rods – he was in the Welsh fly-fishing team. He was a professional tennis coach and met his wife, Sheila (Sheila M.), whilst coaching in Scotland. After their marriage they lived in a flat in the family home at Sea View. Sheila was a very pleasant, likeable lady but tragically died of cancer aged 34 [Cardigan N. 1961, 3rd qt]. They had no children.

In later life Edward himself suffered from poor health; he had a series of strokes and heart surgery. He died in 1981 [Cardigan 1981, 3rd qt]. (The General Register entry for his death it wrongly states that he was born in 1912.)
