What We Know

 

The Essex Antiquarian published the "Descendants of William Brown of Marblehead" in its Volume 13. It is from this source that much of the information about this family was obtained.

From The Antiquarian, we know that William Brown was a fisherman. We also know that his wife survived him and married a second time to Richard Gross.

 

 

From William's will, which identifies his brother-in-law as "John Chinn," we know with certainty that his wife's maiden name was Chinn.

Another of our ancestors, John Codner, was possibly the stepfather of John and Mary Chinn. WilliamBrown successfully sued Codner over a promise of land in relation to his marriage to Mary.
