Owen Jones (3 September 1741 — 26 September 1814) was a Welsh antiquary.

He was born on the Llanfihangel Glyn y Myfyr in Denbighshire. In 1760 he entered the service of a London firm of furriers, to whose business he ultimately succeeded.

He had from boyhood studied Welsh literature, and later devoted time and money to its collection. Assisted by Edward Williams of Glamorgan (Iolo Morganwg) and Dr. William Owen Pughe, he published, at a cost of more than 1000, the well-known Myvyrian Archaiology of Wales (1801—1807), a collection of pieces dating from the 6th to the 14th century. The manuscripts which he had brought together are deposited in the British Library; the material not utilized in the Myvyrian Archaiology amounts to 100 volumes, containing 16,000 pages of verse and 15,300 pages of prose.

Jones was the founder of the Gwyneddigion Society (1772) in London for the encouragement of Welsh studies and literature; and he began in 1805 a miscellany, the Greal, of which only one volume appeared. An edition of the poems of Dafydd ap Gwilym was also issued at his expense. He died in 1814 at his business premises in Upper Thames Street, London.
