George Owen was the royal physician to several members of the Tudor dynasty: Henry VIII, Edward VI, and Mary I. He served alongside Thomas Wendy and Edmund Harman. He was also a Member of the Parliament of England for Oxfordshire in 1558.
Owen owned Wolvercote Manor and Mill, north of Oxford. In 1552, he petitioned the King to prevent the Mayor of Oxford from enclosing Wolvercote Common where the villagers of Wolvercote traditionally had grazing rights. Following the dissolution of Rewley Abbey, he also acquired the manor of Yarnton.
