|David Owen effigy, Sussex|
David Owen was the only member of the Tudor bloodline to only have Tudor blood, and not the royal Valois blood that his half-siblings had. However, despite this it appears that he was not sidelined and enjoyed a long and successful life and was an active member of the Tudor family, being close in particular to his nephew Henry VII.
David Owen's will was proved seven years after his death in 1542 and included that he willed "an obit be kept yearly, the morrow for the souls of King Henry the Seventh, Edmund sometime Earl of Richmond, Jasper Duke of Bedford, my father, my mother". He also requested to be buried alongside his first wife Mary Bohun. In his will he left 500 marks to his two daughters by his third wife Anne, 300 marks to his illegitimate daughter Barbara, and a silver cup to his daughter Anne (Hopton). His estates were left for the use of his wife Anne for the remainder of her life and then in succession to his son Owen, his son John, his son Jasper and his grandson David (son of Henry Owen).
