    1. [BROWN-CANADA] JOHN W BROWN/MARTHA BROWN/"VELVET" or VELVIA BROWN [BOYCE]/SARAH BROWN
    2. .Linda Boyce-Longman
    3. My great grandfather was JOHN W BROWN, born c 1835, possibly Ohio. First wife Martha, possible maiden name Lett, born c 1840, also possibly Ohio. 4 daughters, Christina, b 1859, Agnes, b 1861, Velvet [Velvia, Bella] my grandmother, b 1866, Elizabeth b 1868, all in Ontario, even though their residence in 1870 was Bay City Michigan. No record of Ontario residence before that. Trying to confirm birthplace of John W and actual date. He moved, it seems, back and forth across the border to London ON where he also lived on and off. Martha and the three other daughters seem to have disappeared at some time after 1870, and John married Sarah, moving to London with only Velvia. Any help appreciated.

    1. [BROWN-CANADA] Apostolic Church Montreal
    2. Paddy
    3. I was enquiring about a Brown family from Scotland and have since been able to source the record for William Bookless Brown's death. This included "The Apostolic Church" in Montreal. I am assuming that the family may have attended this church. Would the church have any archives which include BMD of members of this family? How may I access them? Regards, Patricia Taylor N.Z.

    2. Paddy
    3. In 1910 a BROWN family of 4 arrived in Montreal from Glasgow Scotland. They came on the ship Saturnia. They are recorded on the 1911 census for Montreal: William B.Brown 246 McKay male /head/married/b..July 1879 aged 31 Anne Brown " " female/wife/married/b..June 1878 aged 30 Lizzie Brown " " female/daughter/single/b.Oct 1901 aged 9 Agnes Brown " " female/daughter/single/b..June 1903 aged 7 Would somebody be kind enough to advise me as to how I can access the following information: 1)record of the deaths of the parents. 2) record of the schooling of the daughters 3)record of the possible marriages of the daughters 4)death record of the daughters (difficult if they are married and no longer called Brown.) Ann Brown is my great aunt and I had been lead to believe that she had no children. Now I would like to discover what became of them and whether they have any present day descendants. Paddy.

    3. Try: http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#start I've found interesting connections as well as additions to the extended family by searching both the 'old country' and Canada's records. Keep in mind that Canada's privacy laws don't allow for much about living people to be available. Regards, Dennice Goudie In 1910 a BROWN family of 4 arrived in Montreal from Glasgow Scotland.

    2. > Your best bet for birth/marriage/death records if they stayed in Quebec, would be the Drouin records found on Ancestry.com's website. Not sure about school records though. You may also find it useful to track the family in the Montreal city directories- these are all available on line from the Quebec archives.

    3. Hello Jim, I am not certain of my ancestors but family lore is that they first landed in New Brunswick. I would appreciate a copy of the BROWN document you mention. It may in fact be a starting point for my future searches. Hugh Brown Toronto, Canada

    1. [BROWN-CANADA] Old BROWN document (Canadian Browns)
    2. Jim Roaix
    3. I am fortunate to have obtained a document similar to the frontispiece of a family Bible which lists the marriage and children of Alexander BROWN, b. 1793 in New Brunswick, Canada, and Grace GILMORE, also of New Brunswick, Canada. For any of those who are descended from this couple, I will send you a high resolution digital image (free) either via email attachment or on a disk via snail mail. If I can locate a direct lineal male descendant of Alexander who carries the surname BROWN, I will send the original document. It is now professionally framed behind non-glare glass with UV protection. I plan on keeping just a digital image if I can locate a male direct descendant. If you are NOT as described and just a descendant from a daughter as I am, Please do not ask for the original image.

    2. >From a grave stone in the Park Lawn cemetery in Etobicoke: BROWN: In loving memory of Herbert W. Brown 1885 - 1940 Beloved husband of Edith Wiseman 1891 - 1990 >From the Toronto Daily Star Tuesday October 8, 1940: Herbert W. Brown Ex-marine, Buried Herbert Walter Brown, for 14 years a traveller for the George Weston company was buried today in Park Lawn Cemetery. The service was conducted by Rev. J. D. Parks of High Park United Church, a close friend. Mr. Brown was born in Croyden England and came to Canada in 1926. During the great war he served with the Royal Marines at Antwerp and Gallipoli. With a group of his comrades he was entertained at Buckingham Palace. A member of the Commercial Traveler's Association, he is survived by his wife, Edith, and two daughters, Nora and Marion. Pallbearers were a group of his fellow employees: B.M. Fockler, E.R. Taylor, C.E. Laing, George Bruce, George McKenzie, and J. Browes. Are you ready for this? This is not my Herbert Walter Brown born in 1885! What were the chances that there would be two Herbert Walter Browns born in 1885 and have the "wrong one" buried in the same cemetery as the father, mother, and nephew of mine? Good digging to all!
