Dates of existence


David Charles Lloyd-Owen (1843-1925) was a distinguished eye specialist and a genealogist. He was born in Smethwick, Staffordshire, on 5 September 1843, the son of the Rev. D. Owen of Darowen, Montgomeryshire, and Sophia Jeffries of Bridgnorth, Shropshire; his great-grandfather was the writer John Owen (1757-1829), of Machynlleth. He trained at Birmingham and Paris and from 1865 was a house surgeon at Birmingham Eye Hospital. He was at one time Vice-President of the Ophthalmological Society of Great Britain. He maintained a strong connection with Wales in general, and Montgomeryshire in particular, throughout his life, mainly through his interest in Welsh genealogy and history. He corresponded with genealogists and antiquarians in Wales such as Richard Bennett and E. Rowley Morris and belonged to various Welsh societies. He married Anna Green of Muxton, Shropshire, in 1868 and they had two daughters. He died at his home Bron-y-graig, Harlech, on 25 December 1925.
