There was a Robert BROWN (8 ) in Whitehaven in 1861 with a father Thomas BROWN who was a cabinet maker.

Birthplace given as Glasgow.
That is interesting because I suppose cabinet maker/joiner could be one & the same thing to some people.We have a cabinet maker in the family present day & some speak of him as a joiner!!

Whose birthplace given as Glasgow? Robert or Thomas

Wow! So they are connected to Ireland,Scotland & England.

Funny but in the 1901c where Robert states he was born Whitehaven it lists a son age 12 named Harry Brown b.Salford.
There at 2 listed in BMD b.Salford
One in 1890 with mmn of MOORES & one in 1891 with mmn JACKSON.
I am still looking for the previous wife of Robert Brown who was a widower when he married my Gt Grandma Sarah Elizabeth Evans.

The MOORES Harry was son of Thomas and Alice BROWN ... there was a MOORES father in law there in 1891.

Thanks for that Geoff,

So I now wonder who the mother of Robert Browns son Harry was & where & when they married.
