Biography

Sarah Owen was born in 1821 at Wick, Bristol.

Her father was William Owen, a labourer.

When Sarah Owen was 18 years old she married the 26 year old widower William Curtis and became the step mother of Matilda Curtis who had been baptised at Dursley Parish Church on 25 December 1831.

She is listed in the 1841 and 1851 UK Census living with her husband and step-daughter at Dursley, Gloucestershire.

By the 1861 census and 1871 Census Sarah and her husband were living alone, her step-daughter having left home.

Sarah's step-daughter died in 1873, and by the 1881 UK Census Sarah and her husband are both living with their late daughter's husband, George Underwood, and his children at Dursley. They are listed as father in law and mother in law.

Sarah's husband died in 1881. In October the same year Sarah Curtis (nee Owen) married her widower step-son in law, George Underwood, at Marshfield Parish Church, Gloucestershire.
