Research Note

  1. The profile originally recorded Owen's Place of Death as Millbank, which was not recognised; Millbank is an area in central London in the City of Westminster. See Wikipedia.
  2. Owen's Birth and Death Dates were given on the original profile. However I have only been able to source the baptism date and death registration date, so the original dates have been left and marked as 'uncertain'.
