Angus Brown (Browne) - was he father of John Brown (e), who helped found Hampton, NH??

Journal by YankeeRoots

Looking for someone to provide some documentary evidence that John Brown, (the well-documented settler who followed the aged Reverend Stephen Bachelor [Bachiler, etc.] to what eventually became Hampton, New Hampshire, is related to Angus Brown of London, England. This Angus is supposedly descended from the aristocratic Brown Family of Fordel, Scotland. Getting back to John, one of my many-times great grandfathers, we have some evidence that he probably arrived aboard the ship Elizabeth in 1635, married the teenaged Sarah Walker who was in his employ, and arrived in Hampton with Rev. Bachelor around 1638, and was amongst the very first land grantees in the town in 1640. We actually have 2 missing links here - John's father needs to be documented, and if it is Angus, we also need Angus' pedigree. I have corresponded with someone who claims to have visited Angus' burial in a London church, but he stopped corresponding before telling me where that was, and what the inscription might have said. Anyone with documentation, we need your help!

John owned a bakery in London and Sarah Walker and her brother worked for him. They all traveled on the Elizabeth together. I have notes from my great grandmother about this. I have run into the same blocks and would love to know more about the family in England. There is a book called, Genealogy of John Brown of Hampton, New Hampshire written by Marguerite Willette, 1924- but I have been unable to see a copy yet.

I have the book genealogy of John Brown of Hampton, It has absolutely nothing more than what you already know about John in it. I have been searching for years but have found nothing about where he came from before he left England. Only father Angus of Fordell, Scotland. would love some help with this also!

Hi I am from South Africa and also looking for documentation of my great grand father. His name was Henry Bamptan Browne (Born in UK), my Grand Father was Richard Bamptan Browne (Born in South Africa 1892. According to my knowledge they arrived here on a ship. I have asked some one to look for him but a dead end. With the hidden prince that stayed with the Hampton`s. If you have any info for me to look at I would be grateful.
