Owen Genealogy & History

Owen is a Welsh name that comes from the Old Gaelic given name Ouein, which may descend from the Gaelic oen, for lamb, or the Latin eugenius, meaning well-born, or quite possibly both, given the region's history. Owen family history begins in 1221, when Ralph Owen was added to the Warwickshire Assize Rolls. Owen genealogy boasts several renowned persons, such as Australian Owen machine gun inventor Evelyn Owen; 19th-century North Carolina Governor John Owen; and Florida Representative and Roosevelt Ambassador to Denmark Ruth Bryan Owen, daughter of the three-time Democratic Presidential nominee Willian Jennings Bryan.
