OWEN, WILLIAM ARTHUR - BIGGS
1900 M Quarter DUDLEY Volume 6C Page 121

OWEN, FLORA - BIGGS
1905 S Quarter WOLVERHAMPTON Volume 6B Page 676


Marriages Dec Qtr 1903
BIGGS Kate Madeley 6a 1355
OWEN Thomas Albert Madeley 6a 1355

Eliminating the births in Madeley these remain but I can't be sure as there are 3x Owen & Briggs marriages around that time.

If one child died very young there may be no birth reg, just a death reg.

I think John fits as one of the four. With a reg the same quarter I'd say the Leicester ones are out.
