JOHN BROWN

Paraphrasing:  Salient points are that no maiden name is given for Dorothy.  John's birthyear of ca. 1600 is based on his age at death:  36 years on 20 Jun 1636; buried at Watertown.  His widow probably married second William POTTER of Watertown.  John & Dorothy had two daughters and only two daughters (no son) both born in Watertown:

Hannah b. 9 Sep 1634; may have m. John MEAD of Stamford.
Mary b. 24 Mar 1636/7.

Mentions pedigree prepared by Horation Gates Somerby stating John was baptized 11 Oct 1601 Hawkedon, SFK, and was nephew to Abraham and Richard Brown of Hawkedon and Watertown.  Anderson states there is no connection between Richard and the other two, but that Abraham and John could be brothers, however, states there is no evidence supporting an origin in Hawkedon.

No further records of Dorothy or the daughters are found.

States that the John BROWN who married Esther MAKEPEACE has been proven not to be our subject's son.

THE BROWN FAMILY.

The Browns of Marl. were probably descendants of different emigrants.  The Browns in N.E. were so numerous, and the Marl. records are so meagre, that I find it impossible to classify them.

JOHN BROWN, baptized in England, Oct. 11, 1601, came over in the ship Lion, 1632, settled in Watertown, m. Dorothy, and had John and two daughters. John, the son, m. Esther Makepeace, of Boston.  He settled first in Cambridge, where he had four children; then he moved to Marl. soon after in the incorporation of the town.  He sold his place in Marl. to Thomas Rice, moved to Falmouth, then back to Watertown, where he d. 1697.  He had in Marl. John, b. Nov. 27, 1664; Hester, b. Dec. 11, 1667; Ruth, b. Dec. 8, 1668; Abigail, b. March 9, 1674.  Probably no one of the family remained in the place.
