First Generation

1. Andrew1 Brown Sr, son of Michael Browne and she (Brown), (#6374) was born in Holbeton, Devonshire, ENG by Mar 1618/9.(1) Note: Andrew is mistakenly called "Arthur" in History of Litchefield/Centennial (pp 62-63). Andrew died 10 Jan 1709/10 in Boston, Suffolk, MA, at 90 years of age.(2) age 90y

Notes: Jeff Martin says d 1695 Boston, MA; others state d aft 9 Mar 1695/6 Boston, MA His body was interred 1710/11 in Boston, Suffolk, MA.(3) possibly buried in Kennebunkport (Arundel Cemetery) with his son, Andrew Jr

He married she Bailey in Lavenham, Suffolk, ENG, 1650.(4) AF says 1650 Scarborough, Cumberland, ME (she Bailey is #6375.)

She was born 1630 in Lavenham, Suffolk, ENG.(5) She died bef 9 Mar 1695/6 in Boston, Suffolk, MA, at approximately 65 years of age.(6)

He was baptized in Holbeton, Devonshire, ENG, Mar 1618/9.(7) Andrew immigrated, c1643. Destination: Scarborough, York, ME.(8) Loring Family records say 1651; Bradbury says 1643 - I'm going to go with Bradbury till proven otherwise.

He resided Winter Harbor, York, ME c1645.(9) Resided: refugee first at Portsmouth; 1651 Scarborough; 1694 Portsmouth; 1696 Boston w/son William

Andrew's will was probated in Arundel, York, ME, aft 10 Jan 1709/10.(10) John Brown's father Andrew abandoned Scarboro in 1690 but went a different way, first to "Great Island" or Newcastle, thence to Boston. Interestingly, he did not go to Marblehead with his son and son's family and in-laws.

NOTE: Liz Duncan states (quoting from notes and information from Nellia A. Brown) that "Andrew Brown 1st may have been married to a Bailey." This is purely speculation and must be verified. I've searched for over 45 years and haven't been able to ascertain either the given or surname of the wife of Andrew 1st and neither did Walter Goodwin Davis in his quest.

Abstract from MMF by W.G. Davis, 1:226-243:

2. ANDREW BROWN and William Smith, both of Black Point village, were granted by George Cleeve, agent of Alexander Rigby, proprietor of the province of Lygonia, 500 acres in that village on September 29, 1651. The land consisted of 450 acres of upland and 50 acres of marsh, described as follows:

"to begin on the south-west side of that point of woodland in the marsh on the north-east side of the river of Black Point that part of the river that runneth up before and near the house of Henry Watts which point of wood land hath been formerly called Cookes point and now and forever hereafter to be called Bowrells Coome together with 50 acres of marsh ground thereunto adjoining, that is to say 20 acres of marsh at the north-west side of the said woodland ... and 30 acres of marsh ground on the south-east side of the said point."

Brown and Smith were to pay ground rent of two pence an acre to Rigby or his agent each year, but the rent was to be waived for two years and only one-half to be paid for the second two years (YD VII:186).

"Bowrells Coome" was probably derived from Burlescombe, co. Devon, which village may have had associations for either the grantor or the grantees, but its parish registers contain no references to Andrew Brown.

William Smith sold his share of "Bowrells Coome" to Joshua Scottow in 1662, and in 1667 Brown purchased it of Scottow, the deeds stating that there were buildings on the land, once occuppied by Roger Vicars, possibly before the deed to Smith and Brown or as a tenant of Smith (YD VII:187).

Whether Andrew Brown brought a wife with him from England or married in America is not known, nor does the name of his wife appear on the records. He had five sons in 1663, however, as Jonas Baly left then ten shillings apiece in that year. He submitted to the Massachusetts government in 1658 with his fellow townsmen, was a member of the trail jury in 1665 and of the grand jury in 1667, appraised the estates of Christopher Collins in 1666 and Giles Roberts in 1666/7, and was constable in 1670.

When King Philip's war broke out in 1675, the Brown farm, on a point extending into the marsh at the foot of Scottow's hill, was literally a frontier post and the buildings were eventually attached and burned. On October 30, 1675, Capt. Scottow writes that Capt. John Wincoll and about sixty men went up from Black Point "to guard the house of Andrew Brown at Dunstan," and on November 4 Scottow directed Wincoll "to forthwith repair with all the town soldiers to the house of Andrew Brown, there to give war to the Indians." In the roster of Black Point garrison, dated October, 1676, Andrew Brown and three of his sons were listed as living "three musket-short from the garrison," but soon afterward he must have moved his family, except for the two eldest boys who remained on military duty, to Boston, where he addressed the following petition, not to be taken too literally, to the General Court,

"To ye Honrd Governor & Counsell now Assembled at Bostone: The Humble Petition of Andrew Browne sinr Sheweth That wheras yor Petitioner had all his houses Burned to Asses; and his Catle Destroyed by ye Barbarrous Enimys soe that yor poore subplicant is in a very Low Condition having 9 Smale Children whereof 7 of them and himselfe is not any way Capable nor able this 2 years to procure A Livlihood; neither has he been any way Chargable to Towne nor Country; But yor poore petitionr and his wife and 7 smale Children was Mantayned and withoulden from perishing by two Sonns of yor Petitionr namly Andre Andrew Browne and John Browne they both was Impressed here at Bostone in September Last to goe to Kenebecke under ye Command of Capt Thomas Moore and ye Capt Thomas Moore at his Returne then from Kenebecke ye abouesaid Andrew Brown and his Brother John Browne both then was Left at Black point Garrison where they ever since Continued.

"Therefore ye poore Petitionr Humbly Intreats yor worships seriously to consider of his helplesse Condition by ordreing that his two Sonns be discharged from ye Garrison of Black point for there is 9 in yor Petitionrs family that hath there Dependence upon the Labours of ye said Andrew Andrew and John Brown/2d That yor Petitionr intreats yor worships to Consider yt, 9: or 10 months is a Longe tim to continue In Garrison; 3d That few of any hath Continued soe Long in Garrison; soe yor petitionr hopes that these Considerations will move yor worships to rant yor petitionr an order for ye Discharging of his two Sonns, which wilbe a meane to preserve yor poore petitionr from Perishing, soe yor petitionr with his wife and Children shall have great Cause to pray for yor health and Happynesse, ANDREW BROWN SINR"

This request was granted in July,1677. In 1681 the Browns were back in their Scarborough home, and Andrew Brown became one of the principal citizens during the nine short years of Indian peace. In the tax list of 1681 he was assessed for ninety acres of marsh, four hundred and ten acres of land, two oxen, three cows, two two-year olds, two steers, three yearlings and one horse, which was the fourth largest estate. He was selectman in 1682, 1683 and 1686, was chosen with two others to treat with Mr. Blackman to settle in the town as its minister in 1682 and was selected with Robert Eliot to lay the taxes in 1685/6. On July 26, 1684, President Danforth, the chief executive of the province of Maine, delivered a deed of trust for the common lands in the town of Scarborough to seven trustees to hold for the benefit of the inhabitants, of which trustees Andrew Brown was one, the others being Capt. Scottow, Mr. Walter Gendall, Richard Hunywell, William Burridge, Ambrose Boaden, and John Tynny.

As the Rigby patent of Lygonia, under which Andrew Brown held title to his land, had been a creation of the Bromwell government, he was naturally not favorable to the claims of the opposition orGorges party and supported Massachusetts rule. An anonymous informant, hostile to Massachusetts (probably Edmund Randolph) sent to London about 1680 a list of "mem that are Enimies to Mr Gorges intrest, liveing in the Province of Mayne," headed by Major Bryan Pendleton and followed by "Capt Raines of York, Mr Neale of Casco bay, Arthur Auger of Black Poynt, Andrew Brown of Black Poynt, Francis Littlefield of Wells, Henry Sawyer of Yorke, Peter Wyar of Yorke - these are men of indifferent estates and are led by maj Pembleton & of the same independent way, understanding but little but what he tells them in law or gospell" (Documentary History of Maine, IV:314-5). In 1687, to make assurance doubly sure, Brown petitioned Governor Andros to have his five hundred acre grant surveyed and laid out to him anew (ibid, VI:184).

War broke out agaiin in 1690 and Scarborough was abandoned to the enemy and the Browns withdrew to Great Island (Newcastle) with many of their neighbors. While there, having lost his property and now an old man, he mortgaged the five hundred acres to Robert Eliot for 30 Pounds on September 29, 1694 (YD VI:16:5). He also signed a petition to the king, with many other refugees and regular inhabitants of Great Island, asking for a general governor and military supplies.

We find him, finally, in Boston, living with his son, William, to whom, for love and affection, on March 9,1695/6, he deeded the Scarborough land "where I myself did dwell before the Indian war, except for fifty acres of upland and twenty of marsh to be held for John Brown, son of my son John Brown lately deceased; if John die before he come of age it is to go to his next brother Samuel." His wife was dead at the time of this deed, and he probably died soon after.

Ignoring the claim of his cousin, John Brown of Marblehead, which seems never to have been pressed (Penhallow, however, excepted it when he deeded to Samuel Harmon in 1726 (YD 12:78), William Brown, Andrew's grandson, sold the entire five hundred acres to Samuel Penhallow of Portsmouth on January 10,1710/1, and to Penhallow (YD VII:189; VIII:12). Robert Eliot assigned the mortgagee on March 4, 1712.

The number and names of Andrew Brown's children are somewhat uncertain. We know that he had five sons in 1663 and in 1676 he had, in addition to two soldier sons, seven small children, the adjective being doubtless somewhat of an exaggeration. Of the following, Andrew, John, William, and Elizabeth are definitely proven, while the others are highly probable."

Abstract from Penobscot Pioneers by Philip Howard Gray, pp 36-38:

Andrew1 Brown was probably the one who was baptized in Holberton co Devon in Mar 1619, son of Michael Brown (W.G. Davis, The Ancestry of Sarah Miller 1939 p 49). George Cleeve, agent forthe Lygonia patent, on date of 29 Sept 1651, grated Andrew Brown 500 acres on the river of Black Point near the grant of Henry Watts (ibid p 50). He signed his name with a mark 13 July 1658 on the confirmation of submission of Maine to Massachusetts (Province and Court Records of Maine, 1931 v 2 p 71). First time on jury of trials 7 Nov 1665 and first time on grand jury 1 Oct 1667 (ibid 1928 V 1 p 233, 337). He was made constable from Scarborough in 1670 (ME/NH Gen Dict by LND, reprint 1972 p 113).

During King Philip's War he was evidently a member of Capt. Scottow's garrison, for he was one of those signing the 15 July 1676 letter of support for Scottow; on date of 12 Oct 676 he was listed as living "three muskett shott" from the Black Point garrison (G.M. Bodge, Soldiers in King Philip's War, 1906 p 334-336). Davis reprints the petition which Andrew Brown, who had fled with most of his family to Boston, addressed to the General Court, explaining that his buildings had been burned to ashes, his cattle destroyed, and asking for relief (Anc of Sarah Miller by Davis, p 51). By 1681 he had returned to Scarborough where he regained prosperity during the next nine years of Indian peace; he was selectman in 1682, 1683 and 1686, and one of the seven trustees appointed by President Danforth for the comman lands (ibid p 51-52). The last court record of him in Scarborough was when 8 June 1687 he, as Andrew Brown Senior, forfeited his bond of ten pounds for failing to appear to prosecute Joshua Scottow Esquire, reason unknown (Province and Court Records of Maine, 1947 v 3 p 259). The Indian war of 1690 drove him first to Great Island and then to live with his son William in Boston where he was when he deeded the Scarborough land to said William 9 Mar 1695/6; Andrew Brown probably died soon after (Sarah Miller p 52). Name of wife not seen. Children, so far as is known, were Charles2, John2, Andrew2, Joseph2, Joshua2, Elizabeth2, William2, and Samuel2 (ibid pp 53-54)."

Abstract from History of Kennebunkport by Bradbury, pp 229-230:

Brown, Arthur [ Error - should read Andrew], who had "been bred a merchant from his youth upwards" (county records), came to this country in 1643. His son Andrew lived in Scarborough, but removed to York, where he resided in 1699. Andrew bought land at Winter Harbor in 1717, and lived there a short time, but removed to Arundel before 1719, and was one of the Selectmen that year. He owned mills on "Brown's mill river," where he resided. He must have been a very aged man at the time of his removal into this town; and he lived but a few years after that period. He left five children: Allison, Andrew, Matthew, Elizabeth m Abraham Tyler, and a daughter that m Joshua Lassel.

Notes for ANDREW BROWN: (Source: Pages of notes and information by Nellie A. Brown)

In the early records of Sacs and Scarboro we find the names of Brown occrs as witnessing deeds, titles, and also in court business. In 1625, our John Brown of New Harbor, is spoken of as purchasing two Indian sacherres? for fifty skins, a tract of land on Pemaquid, extending 8 by 24 miles, together with Muscougo Island.

Andrew Brown, Sr. of Black Point, Scarboro is found in two York Co. deeds as early as 1651. He may have been there earlier as his deed of 500 acres bought with William Smith (York Deeds Vol.VII, folio 186-187) is similar to others, taken at that time of Cleeve's or Rigby's agent, in order to get a clear title to the land. This deed is not recorded until 1710-11, where the grandson, William, Jr., of Boston, wished to sell the land inherited from his father, William Brown, of Boston, Mariner, whose father Andrew Brown of Scarboro, Me, had given him for care in his old age (York Deeds, Vol. III, folio 188-89).

From Scarboro Records: First notice of Andrew Brown, an early settler of the town of Scarboro, is as a witness against Phillipere of Foxwell, in 1658. He lived on the side of Black Point nearest Blue Point. In 1670, his two sons were impressed to go as soldiers to the Kennebec and he petitioned for them to be given garrison duty at Black Point. Jonas Bailey, of Blue Point, mentioned in his will, 1663, the five sons of Andrew Brown, but gives names of none. From another source, we learn the names of four of them, Andrew, Jr. John, Joseph, and Charles, to which we were afterward added William of Boston, and Joshua 1st, who married Rebecca Libby.

Andrew Brown was one of the earliest of the names in New England and though we cannot trace the decent of those bearing his name in this vicinity, it is highly probable that these are his decendants.

In March 15, 1717, the inhabitants of Saco, saw fit to reorganize a body of municipal officers, for defraying public charges, etc. Andrew Brown the 3rd, was chosen as first selectman and assessor, This was probably the son of Andrew 2nd. In 1755 in the muster roll of his Majesty's service, the name John apprears, also in 1776, several names of Brown are found as trained soldiers.

Source -Soldiers, Sailors, and Patriots- Reveolutionary War- Maine

Andrew Brown1st may have been married to a Bailey.

Joshua 1st was married to Rebecca Libby, daughter of Capt. John Libby. He was a prominent and one of the earliest settlers of Scarboro, Maine. She was a widow living in Portsmouth in 1721, and was living there as late as 1732.

Andrew Brown 4th moved from Portsmouth to Scarboro after the second settlement and stayed there until his death. He was back at the place of his and his wife's birth (Susannah).

Hannah Libby was the daughter of Henry Libby b. 1647 and Honor Hinkson. Their children were: Mary, Samuel, Sarah, James, Hannah, Elizabeth, John. Hannah married John Pollow on Dec. 1720. She died at an early age, leaving one daughter, Hannah, who lived with her grandfather, Henry Libby, until she married, Joshua Brown 2nd. She died Aug, 21, 1810. They are both buried at the Black Point Cemetary in Scarboro, Maine.

Andrew Brown 5th born December 14, 1752, died May 2, 1838, married November 5, 1776, to Rachel Small, born November 17, 1769, died Feb. 23,1845. Their first child was born in Scarboro, Maine. During the year 1778, he was in the Revolutionary War, his wife and young son living at the time with his parents, Joshua 2nd and wife Hannah Pollow Brown in Scarboro. as seen by letters written to her from him. At the latter part of the year 1779, he with his two brothers, and families, Joshua 3rd and John, moved to Raymond, Maine clearing and making farms, his being in the edge of Gray, along the side of the line between Raymond and Gray. Here he cleared and built a home, logs at first, afterward a frame house, where their other children were born and where they lived the rest of their lives.

Their last days were kindly and tenderly cared for by their son Andrew 6th and his wife Sally Russo, and they saw children and grandchildren grow up around them Their last resting place is in the Raymond Village Cemetary.

Joshua 2nd and Andrew 3rd were soldiers in the Revolutionary War, serving almost three years.

The author of these notes is a child of Andrew 4th, grandaughter of Joshua Brown and Rachel Small. She lists her parents as Sally Russo, died April 1, 1884, and Andrew 4th born Aug. 28, 1799, died March 29, 1883. Her name was Nellie Augusta Brown. She wrote a verse about genealogy:

We can never forget-- the home of our youth The place which gave us birth. The loving hands, the tender care, The source of our joy and mirth. Long years may have passed, the step grown slow And our lives peacefully glide along; But the early years will forever have The charm of a beautiful song. - N.A.B.

She married John Pollow on Dec. 15, 1720 and had one daughter, Hannah, who lived with her grandfather, Henry Libby.
