Im happy to have a look for you and have found a birth entry for Euphemia Margaret Brown - Oct-Dec 1842 in leicester and an entry with a Euphemia Margaret death in July-Sept 1902 in Paddington, London is this the person you are looking for?

Do you have anymore information about the family? like where they may have lived, what was John's occupation?

You say John was married 3 times - which number wife was Margaret Simpson Grainger?
Were Euphemia and Elizabeth born to the same mother? as their births are 30 years apart.

I have done some research for you and have been able to draw up a family tree for you.

John Brown was born 25 May 1792 Belfast, N Ireland he died 15 Dec 1845 Leicester. He was a vicar and his career is as follows:-

Admission to Trinity College, Dublin 6 July 1807
Ordained Deacon (Bristol) 17 June 1815, then priest in 1816
Church of the Holy Trinity Clifton, Gloucestershire 1815
Church of St Ann Belfast 1816
Minister of St Pauls Episcopal Church, Aberdeen 1822-1840
Vicar of St Marys Leicester 1840-1845
Died 1845
Will 8 Oct 1846

You are correct in the fact that John Brown was married 3 times and his families are a s follows:-

1. Elizabeth Barclay Evans b 1790 Dublin, N Ireland d.18 June 1812 Dublin N Ireland

children from this marriage - Elizabeth Barclay Evans Brown b 17 June 1812 Dublin N Ireland see married Henry Richard Marmion in 1838 (you will see from the dates that Elizabeth's mother died as a result of childbirth)

2. Anna Macartney - b 1796 Ireland and appears to die Sept 1839 Isle of Man, but I cannot prove this. I also cannot find any children to this marriage.

3. Margaret Simpson Grainger - b 24 Sept 1806 Cuckfield, Sussex and dies 29 April 1875 in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

There are 3 children to this marriage:-

(1) Euphemia Margaret Brown b Oct 1842 Leicester dies 11 Aug 1902 in Paddington, London, United Kingdom (she never married)

(11) Ann Jane Sara Brown b 16 May 1845 in Leicester, Leicestershire, England dies in 1858

(111) John Gardiner Brown b 6 July 1846 Leicester dies 19 Aug 1929 Kensington London, he marries Caroline Neve in 1893 and also I think was a minister.

I hope this is useful to you I have put this tree as a temporary tree on my ancestry account so if you would like access to it let me have you email address and i will give you access.
