  (5) Sir David Owen 'of Cowdrey' 'of Easebourn' (d by 1542)
  'The History and Antiquities of the County of Northampton' (George Baker, vol 1, 1830, 'Owen of Welton', p458) shows Sir David as 'of Wotton' (Surrey) and reports that some insert another generation, showing David as son of a William. Baker names his 3 wives but shows all his children by Anne Devereux. We follow Griffith.
  m1. (sp) Ann Blount (dau/heir of William Blount)
  m2. Mary Bohun (dau/coheir of John Bohun of Midhurst)
(A) Sir Henry Owen 'of Easebourn'
  Griffith does not identify Sir Henry's wife but shows that he had a son, David. Visitation (Kent, 1619, Mortimer and Dering) identifies his wife and shows his daughters/coheirs Mary & Elizabeth and their husbands (but not David).

  b. Agnes

  v. Rhys of Tregayan & Ddraenog (d 1414)
  m. Gwerfyl
  We originally thought that this may have been the Rhys who was father of Griffith father of the Margaret who is identified in BLG1952 (Salusbury of Firgrove) as 2nd cousin of Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond (above). We now show Rhys-Griffith-Margaret elsewhere.
