Biographical history

Owen Green of Seawood Estates, Breadalbane, Prince Edward Island, is a descendant of Israel Green (1792-1869), whose father Daniel Green, a United Empire Loyalist, settled on land in what is now the City of Summerside. One of Israel Green's sons was Owen Green (1841-1903), who resided with his wife, Janet Morrison, in Founds Mills located seven miles east of Kensington, PEI. They raised eight children including Angus (1885-1972), the father of (George) Owen Green (b.1937) who spent several years collecting historical information about the Greens in Prince Edward Island, publishing a booklet in 1997 about his branch of the family.

Custodial history

The materials were copied in July 2001 from those written or acquired by Owen Green during his search for information about his ancestors.

Scope and content

The collection contains three files of photocopied pages. The first file is a copy of Owen Green's self-published 1997 booklet entitled "A Few Greens from Green's Shore: Israel Green Branch." It provides an overview of Daniel Green, the pioneer, followed by information about the second generation of Greens in Prince Edward Island. Emphasis then turns to the author's grandfather Owen Green and his descendants. The second file contains 151 pages copied from "The New World Book of Greens, Volume I" published in 1998 by Halbert's Family Heritage. The third file is comprised of correspondence between Owen Green and several archival repositories in Pennsylvania while he was continuing his family research from 1999-2000.
