James Owen of Penrhos

and his descendants

Llewellyn Bernard Owen (1873 - 1943) ... 2

Amelia (36) and Llewellyn were living in Bedwellty in 1911 with their two daughters, Hilda, then aged four, (b. 17 Jun 1906 [Bedwelty 1906, 3rd qt]) and Mary Hannah, then aged two months, (b 1 February 1911 [Bedwelty 1911, 1st qt]).

Hilda Owen married Frederick S Phillips in 1927 [Bedwelty 1927, 2nd qt], a man two years her senior, and they had a son, Bernard William (aka William Bernard) Phillips (b 13 May 1928 [Bedwellty 1928, 2nd qt]). The family were living in Mynyddislwyn, Monmouthshire, in 1939 and I believe Hilda died aged seventy-nine [Newport, Aug 1985]. Her son, William, was sixty-two when he died [Pontypool, Apr 1991].

I believe Amelia died in 1934 [Bedwellty 1934, 4th qt], though her age at death of fifty-six is not consistent with her ages in the censuses. Llewellyn died at Poplar Road, Tredegar, on 16 February 1943. He was a widower living at 13 Fields Road, Tredegar, at that time. This might also have been the home of his daughter Mary and her husband Ivor Davies (b 1909) since Llewllyn was living with them, in Tredegar, in 1939. Interestingly, administration was granted at Oxford and not in the area in which they lived, to "Mary Hannah Davies (wife of Ivor Davies)". Mary and Ivor had married in 1934 [Bedwelty 1934, 2nd qt], though the General Register of marriages gives her name as Hannah Mary Owen. I believe they had children John Owen [b Bedwellty 1934, 2nd qt] and, possibly, Elizabeth Davies [reg Bedwellty 1942, 1st qt].

Mary Hannah Davies died in the winter of 1979/80 [Blaenau Gwent 1980, 1st qt].
