Dates of existence


Evan Owen is listed in the Liverpool Directory of 1870 as a 'paint manufacturer' and in the 1924 Directory as an 'oil and colour merchant'. Towards the end of the nineteenth century the Baptist church decided to compile material in preparation for a history of the Liverpool Baptists and Owen was allotted the task of researching the city's Welsh Baptists and their churches. He appears to have begun this work by the turn of the twentieth century and to have continued it into the 1920s, eventually leaving a legacy comprising not only copious autograph notes but also a considerable amount of printed material. As Owen bequeathed this collection to the National Library in 1925 it is assumed that he died around this time.
