Edward Owner was born in 1576, and was member for Yarmouth in 1620, 1625, 1639, and 1640, and he was returned with Miles Corbet, the regicide, during the Long Parliament. He was Bailiff in 1625 and 1634. In Parliament he warmly opposed the "ship money," and was one of those who voted it illegal. On the breaking out of the Civil War, he actively exerted himself to place the town in a state of defence, towards which he contributed in plate and money. He laboured for the social good of the town, and it was mainly through his exertions that the Children's Hospital School was established, himself endowing it with £1,500. He died in 1650, and was buried in the north aisle of St Nicholas' Church. In 1823 his grave was opened, and his bones scattered for the interment of another. The issuer was probably a son of the above.
