Owen was born in 1887 at Burnt Yards, Carcoar District, New South Wales.2 He was the son of Eleazar Owens and Alice Harrison. However, despite his given name he was known to the family, at least, as 'Bloom'. He lived with his parents at Mandurama, New South Wales, in 1891. It is most likely that the Owens family lived in Mandurama from the birth of Ivy up to and beyond her marriage in 1911.3

He, along with Don Bourke, was a stalwart of the cricket club in Mandurama, New South Wales in 1904.4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
