RE: Owen Owings
All I know is that Richard Owen (1745 - Feb 1822) emigrated to Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, from Wales. He was a Methodist minister and teacher of writing and mathematics at the King William School (later St. John's College) in Annapolis c.1790. He married Elizabeth (Pinckney) Owen.

Supposedly "Plinlimmon" in Owings Mills, Baltimore County, Maryland, was named after the Welsh mountain, Plynlimmon.

RE: Owen Owings
Either the owners of Plinlimmon were actually Owens (rather than Owings) or a lot of records are using the wrong spelling of their surname.

An account book (1810-17) of Richard Owen and a collection of Maynard family papers is owned by the Maryland Historical Society. The papers have not been processed. The series have been identified, but the material has not been completely sorted into this arrangement.
