Brown family of Richmond
« on: Monday 24 July 17 20:20 BST (UK) »
I wonder if anyone knows of Jean Brown of Richmond.She was a child star,born in 1935 in Richmond,Yorkshire.She was apparently known as the"Shirley Temple of Richmond" from around 1942 when she was 7 and a deceased family member said that Jean and her sister Joyce toured with Max Miller.This is all I know so I hope someone will be able to help

The local newspaper The Northern Echo (based in Darlington) has a very interesting weekly supplement "Echo Memories" written by Chris Lloyd.  He is an expert on local history and a mine of information, perhaps he has heard of these sisters or could ask readers to contact you via the "Echo Memories" Saturday pull-out.

This is his page on the Echo website but I can't find an email address.

I can see a Joyce Brown born in 1935 in Richmond, Yorkshire, but not a Jean Brown (on free bmd).

When do you believe Joyce was born?
