May not be the right person, but the only one of almost the right age and area is John Brown, son of William and Alice, in Grantham on 16th March 1790. The abode is Manthorpe which is just over 5 miles from Welby.

They had other children in Little Gonerby, which is just under 5 miles from Welby.

Alice, the wife of William of Little Gonerby, was buried in Grantham, St Wulfram, on 22nd January 1798, born 1863.

A William Brown married Alice Kingston, a widow of Broughton, Nottinghamshire, in Barkston on 17th October 1784.
Upper Broughton/Broughton Sulney, is near Melton Mowbray. Alice Wartnaby married Richard Kinston there on 13th August 1782. Richard was buried in August 1783 in Upper Broughton.

Alice was baptised on 16th March 1764 in Long Clawson, 3 miles from Broughton.
