In 1895, Cyrus Henry Brown began collecting family records of the Brown family, initially with the intention of only going back to his great-grandfathers. As others became interested in the project, they decided to trace the family lineage back to Thomas Brown and his wife Mary Newhall, both born in the early 1600s in Lynn, Massachusetts. Thomas, John, and Eleazer, three of their sons, later moved to Stonington, Connecticut around 1688. When North Stonington was established in 1807, the three brothers were living in the southern part of the town. Wheeler’s “History of Stonington” contains 400 records of early descendants of the Brown family, taken from the town records of Stonington. However, many others remain unidentified, as they are not recorded in the Stonington town records. For around a century, the descendants of the three brothers lived in Stonington before eventually migrating to other towns in Connecticut and New York State, which was then mostly undeveloped. He would eventually write this second volume of his Brown Genealogy adding to and correcting the previous edition. This book is free to search, read, and/or download.
- The first section contains records of Nicholas Browne and his son Thomas, who settled in Lynn, Mass., in 1630. The basis of this genealogy, as in his earlier Brown Genealogy, are the three sons of Thomas Brown and Mary Newhall; viz., Thomas, John, and Eleazer Brown, who came to Stonington, Conn., about 1680, taking fifty-three numbers in regular order as given in his first volume.
- The second section takes up Charles Browne and his descendants, who settled in Rowley, Mass., in 1647, and who doubtless came with the early pioneers from 1630 to 1635. Part 2 starts on page 399. it is indexed separately starting on page 598.
