Mr Owen Harris Braund, 22, was born at Pigsdon Farm, Week St Mary, Cornwall in 1889, the son of James Braund (farmer) and Elizabeth Braund (née Harris). He was brother to Lewis Richard, Mary Jane (Janie), William James (Jim) and John Morcom (Jack). From about 1902 the family moved to live at Norton's Farm, Bridgerule, Devon and by 1913 were living in Truscott, Launceston.

In the early 1900's Owen's elder brother Jim moved to Canada to work. On a return visit he encouraged both Lewis and Owen to emigrate there with him. The brothers also encouraged their second cousins, Samuel and William Dennis and John Henry Perkin to travel with them. Also accompanying the party was a more distant cousin, John Hall Lovell. Jim Braund for some reason chose to travel on a ship from Liverpool. For their journey across the Atlantic they chose the maiden voyage of Titanic. They had a long train journey from Holsworthy on the London & South Western Railway with changes at Exeter and Salisbury and spent the night before embarking the ship at the Alliance Hotel, Southampton. They embarked the following morning travelling third class, Owen's ticket, numbered 21171 had cost £7 5s. Their destination was to have been Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Canada.
