Owen, The Rev Edward Charles Everard

Master (Classics) 1866-1918; House Master of The Knoll 1901-08. Fellow of New College, Oxford (1st in ‘Greats’). Christian fundamentalist; author of books on Latin syntax and Ancient History.

The name comes up again in Roll of the sons and daughters of the Anglican Church clergy throughout the world and of the naval and military chaplains of the same who gave their lives in the Great War. It suggests he was Rector of Bucknell and that his son, Francis Whitwell Owen of the Royal Fusiliers, died at Vermelles. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 19:28, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
