Born 10 Oct 1859 Newtown Montgomeryshire
Son of Edward Owen Davies and Elizabeth nee Jones Both
parents came from
yeoman farming stock in Montgomeryshire. His 2
brothers were Thomas Lloyd
Davies (my paternal grandfather) and Edward Jones Davies. Family story
relates that he left for NZ as a young man but no date available. He
apparently married whilst on board ship and settled in Fiji. He
return to London to float shares in his own company . Unfortunately I
no further details but would love to trace any family associated with
Owen or find more details of his passage ? Liverpool

perhaps a case of one of

The question: An Indian Army
at Dera Ismail Khan on the Afghanistan frontier in 1860. His regiment
the 10th Punjab, is due to be disbanded, so he sells his commission and
sets sail for the Red Sea to do some big game hunting. As a guess
how long would it take to get from Dera Ismail Khan to Bombay, where he
took passage? All guesses would be welcome.
