Lord Aaron Hearns, Steadholder Owens, was a Grayson steadholder and the father of Abigail Hearns.

His senior wife was Helen Hearns (SI2) and a junior wife named Sandra (HH15)

He had two sons and a first-born daughter, Abigail, who was the first Grayson women to hold a rank in the Grayson Space Navy and be accepted as a possible future steadholder. Steadholder Owens had a personal bodyguard assigned to her as a condition of her being on active duty. (SI1)

He attended the ceremony where Abilgail received the Conspicuous Gallantry Medal, becoming the first Grayson-born steadholder ever to visit the Royal Manticoran Naval Academy on Saganami Island. (HHA4.6: TSotS)
