Phineas Brown Susannah Cannings
« on: Tuesday 10 December 13 18:51 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm looking for any details on my 5x Great Grandfather Phineas Brown. I know he married Susannah Cannings in 1779 in Bighton, Hampshire and that he had at least six children. I believe he lived in Crawley, Hants. where he died of Smallpox in 1808. These details came from Hampshire Parish records, but I cannot find any birth or baptism details or any other official documentation other than a summons and bastardy order.

Thanks

Hi Steve,

Thank you for you reply. I'm not sure that Susannah Canning is the right one because the wedding date and age in 1851 doesn't tie up. But the prompt about Phinas Brown certainly looks a worth while investigation.

Thank you for the tips.

Paul

possible for Catherina Leigh baptism - in same church- St Mary the Virgin,Deane but living in Westhoughton

Baptism: 26 Dec 1705 St Mary, Deane, Lancashire, England
 Jacobus and Catherina,
 gemini Gulielmi Liegh de Westhaughton

 Jacob and Catherine - twins - father William ( Gulielmi ) Leigh of Westhoughton - if this is correct Phinias Browns grandfather on his mothers side was William Leigh of Westhoughton ..

no sign of Adam Brown being baptised in that area
