Birth*circa 1630Owen Edmunds was born circa 1630 at Northampton Co, VA.4,5,3 
Will - Father's*27 December 1633Owen was named in his father's will on 27 December 1633 at Northampton Co, VA. In his will Robert Edmound, here lying on my death bed, gave a wife and child (no names) 410 lbs tobacco for my plantation in the hands of Thomas Cole, John Dennis and Robert Swanson and 450 lbs tobacco to be paid to John Sands for the plantation and 8 lbs of beaver that Thomas owes me and 1000 lbs tobacco that Daniel Cugly owes me.3 
Muster*August 1664Owen was not listed in the Muster of August 1664 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as Owin Edmonds, who was delinquent at August muster 1664. (NOTE: This was for military duty.)6 
Will - Mentioned in*11 March 1665/66Owen was mentioned in a will on 11 March 1665/66 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as Owin Edmuns and given my husband's suit of clothes with scarlet waistcoat in the will of Mrs. Jane Hartree (widow of Elias).4,5 
Anecdote*between 1633 and 1666 In his 1633 will Robert Edmound left to John Thomkins 2,000 6-penny nails which Thomas Wyatt owes me of his own making. In 1640 Thomas Wyatt was given a patent for 400 acres of tract N69 at Bridgetown on Church Creek. The original patent to Wyatt is not recorded, but it is mentioned with its date in the record of a patent of 1664 to Elias Hartree for 600 acres, 200 said to have been assigned by Wyatt. In 1666 Elias Hartree's widow Jane (Cutting) left a suit of clothes that was her husband's to Owen Edmuns(sic). This places Owen Edmunds in or near the same general location in Northampton County as Thomas Wyatt who was named in Robert Edmound's will. Owen Edmunds was never named as a headright or on a land certificate issued in Northampton or Accomack Counties which implies that he did not immigrate into these counties and was evidently born in Northampton County. He was also the only Edmounds named in Northampton or Accomack County records between the 1633 will of Robert Edmounds and his will of 1696 when he named a son David. From these facts it seems evident that he is the only possible person who could have been the child named in Robert Edmound's will of 1633.2,4,5,7,8

Death*before 6 March 1685/86He died before 6 March 1685/86 at Anne Arundel Co, MD. It was on this date that his will was proved.5 
Anecdote* Sherrie Mitchell Boone reports that her brother, John Bruce Mitchell's YDNA test shows a connection to a Scott Mitchell within 12 generations rated at 97.38% and within 8 generations at 88.79%. The YDNA results, combined with Sherrie's paper based research on both lines, indicate that John Bruce Mitchell III is in the 11th generation of descent by a continuous male line from Thomas Mitchell (1621-1700) and Scott Mitchell is in the 10th generation of descent by a continuous male line from William Mitchell (1634-1685/6). This implies that William Mitchell (1634-1685/6) is a nephew of Thomas Mitchell (1621-1700). However, as a result of the research Bob Atteberry of Carmichael, CA, provided in Feb 2017, it is now apparent that Capt. William Mitchell (1615-1658/9) is not the father of William Mitchell (1634-1685/6) and not a brother of Thomas Mitchell (1621-1700).6
