Owens Genealogy & History

Owens comes from the ancient tribes of North Wales. It descends from the Celtic "Owain", which in turn is descended from the Greek "Eugenius", meaning "well-born". Another less likely theory is that the name came from "oen", meaning a lamb. Some other spellings are MacOwen, Owenson, Owenby, and Ownby. Owens family history is first recorded in 926 as the first name "Uwen" and in 1221 as Ralph Owein in the Assize Rolls of Warwickshire. Members of Owens genealogy include Cincinnati Bengals football player Terrell Owens, Olympic athlete Jesse Owens, country singer Buck Owens, author and photographer Bill Owens, and actress and singer Queen Latifah (born Dana Owens).
