Families covered: Owen of Bettws, Owen of Condover, Owen of Llunllo, Owen of Machynlleth, Owen of Shrewsbury, Owen of Whitley, Owen of Woodhouse

BLG1886 (Owen of Bettws) reports that this family was descended from Grono ap Owen, son or grandson of Howell Dda, King of South Wales. Although it is possible that this is referring to a matrilineal rather than a strictly patrilineal descent, we follow Visitation which agrees with BLG1952 (Powell of Nant Eos) that this family was descended from Idnerth Benfras (Benvras).
