The website of New Brunswick County, Va. has information about Goronwy Owen a Welsh poet of the 18th century who immigrated to Virginia, taught at William and Mary and became the priest of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Lawrenceville, Virginia. Interestingly. my maternal Grandmother's grandmother was an Owens whose family also had immigrated from Wales.
