Hi audrey - I have just found your post about your kind offer to look up Maryport families in your books about the town.  I am researching the brown family of Maryport.  Caaptain George Brown was the Harbour Master in Maryport in about the 1860's.  I discovered yesterday in the cemeterty at Maryport that his mother was Hannah Tolson.  He married Agness Benn and had 13 children.  His eldest son George was the marine superintendant for the Hine shipping line, other children involved in shipping were robert Brown, Thomas Brown, wilson Brown, James and John Brown. I would really appreciate it please if you have the time to see if there is anything in your books about the Browns and Benns. Thank you for your help.

there is nearly three pages about Captain George Brown of Maryport he was Captain of the Robert Hine which was built in Sunderland in 1868 I would advise that you try to buy the book ,it has a copy of his log and a picture of the ship
Solway Winds by John D Wells printed by  Titus Willson and sons of Kendal
I think it cost me 15 in 2004
I have no connection outher than reading anything and every thing about Maryport

thank you so much for that information, I will try and buy the book, I hope to go the the record office in Carlisle this week maybe they will have a copy there. I ahvae a growing fascination with Maryport as so many seafaring Browns came from there.  A trip to the cemetery last week answered many questions but posed new ones. revealing a complicated relationship between the Browns and the Burches in the town.  thanks again for your help regards Lynne
