There is a tree on Ancestry giving his mother as
Anne P. Parry
Birth Abt. 1853 in Llandyssil, Cardiganshire, Wales

Father John Owen, but no info for him

This is utter gibberish as his mother can't have been born in 1853

If you google the name there are many hits from different genealogy websites. Don't know if the queries are from the same person who made this one.

Don't know if it is of any use but the census for 1871 that Gins put up next door is Hannah Parry 50 widow with her children Robert 19 and William Thomas 9.
