William Brown
« on: Thursday 27 January 11 12:56 GMT (UK) »
Searching for information on William Brown who was on a ship which ended up in Poverty Bay, Gisborne, NZ. William Brown was born 1802.  Which ship did he sail on?  Where did he grow up in England?  Mother? Father? Answers to these questions and any other information on William Brown would be great.

Hi

With a name like William Brown and so little information that is going to be very difficult, if not impossible. Have you got any more information from marriage or death certificates? How old was he when he arrived in NZ? Anything you can tell us will help.

Thanks for your reply.
I found this on another post by Trudym who is searching for information on John Swan:
Hi, all we know is he joined the brig Elizabeth on 22 February 1830.  There was a William Brown who was also on the ship who also ended up in Poverty Bay Gisborne, John didnt stay here but went to Hawkes Bay.  William Brown was born 1802 so maybe John Swan was born about that same period, have no idea of when.  However, he named his two sons, William and Tom so maybe that is a family connection. 

Hope this helps.

Info about William Brown found on internet.  All info though is after he arrived in NZ.  Would like to find out about his life before he settled in NZ.

 I have have him from Bury, a town  Lancashire England from My Heritage Genealogy site
and it was put up by a Del Longmore (American?) but he/she named Williams Wife Hine Whati-O-Terangi
so if someone else can confirm? not to sure about the  brig Elizabeth but notorious it was.
