  • Notes 
    • Owen Owens is identified as the father of Elizabeth in her 1901 marriage records.

      Owen is recorded in the 1901 census (on 10th April) as a widower living alone in Carnally - a townland just west of Silverbridge. His occupation as an "Agricultural Labourer" means he is not a tenant of a house or land - ie recorded as "Farmer". The census shows that Owen is renting the 2-roomed thatched house from his neighbour Owen O'Hare.
      This could be why there are no Carnally tenants named Owens in the 1864 Land Valuations nor in the 1890 to 1908 period. However in 1827 there was a Owen Owens and a James Owens each with just over 3 (Irish) acres of land (Tithe Applotments records).
      Owen died in August 1901 , just 2 months after the wedding of his daughter Elizabeth to James Loye.


      (To get an idea of the Owens surname distribution locally, the number of Owens appearing in the 1901 census was: Down - 235, Louth - 125, Monaghan - 102, Co Armagh - 24 individuals.) [1]
