Andrew BROWN and Agnes Bonar 1792/3 Clackmannan
« on: Tuesday 10 March 15 15:53 GMT (UK) »
 :) :) :)
I am looking for my BROWN ancestors.
I have come to a halt with

Andrew Brown born c 1792-1851 in Clackmannan.

Does anyone have information about Andrew Brown's parents?

His children were all born in Fife: Lochgelly, Lumphinnans, Cowdenbeath areas.

His son was David Frew Brown born 1834 (married to Ann Shepherd)
His son was John Brown born 1862 (married to Isabella Dewar)
His son was John Brown born 1891 (married to Mary McCartney)

Any information would be very helpful
Thank you

Does the birthplace come from a census? Birth year - is 1851 a typo?  Do you have the names of any other children of Andrew? A list in birth order could be useful.

Hi Kenbro,

This doesn't answer your question regarding Andrew's parents but SP have a death record for Andrew  Brown in June 1839 Clackmannan, Clackmannanshire; Agnes and the children's place of residence in 1841. Don't expect too much information from it, but if you're lucky it may give his age to better establish his birth year.

Thanks very much for the info.
I had narrowed his death down to before 1841 so 1839 looks correct.
I'll look at SP and see what I find.
Thanks again.
