  • I find this page most exciting. My BROWN family went to Easthorpe via Thorpe Arnold from Long Bennington. Mr Thomas Brown went there c 1730. Documents from the Nottm RO have the leases showing. Will of Thomas Brown witness Edmund Brown (my ancestor) also mentions the farm. Edmund Brown dies in the 1800s at Easthorpe. John Brown was a weaver in Bottesford in the late 1700s as was Edmund.

  • In John and Mary Fegan’s Gravestone Index of St Mary’s Church, Bottesford the following Brown’s are listed. Hope this is useful in your enquiries. The index entry numbers are included. No mention of Edmund in this index

  • A little more info: The Guys of Bottesford website has a record of burials that covers the late 18th and all the 19th Centuries. There is a record of the burial at Bottesford of Edmond Brown, aged 82, on the 30th December 1834. I think this may well be your Edmund. There is also a record of the burial of John Brown, aged 89, on the 29th of October 1799. Unfortunately no more details are given.
    It is perhaps worth adding that Fegan’s excellent index includes ‘only’ a little more than 1850 individual people from the period 1669 to the 1970s, which is much less than the number of people who lived in the village over those years. Many people simply didn’t have headstones, yet their burial is recorded in the parish records studied by the Guys people.

  • As Hilary Thomas, I was too very interested in the Brown Family to whom I am related. I can trace my family to Edmund Brown Weaver of Bottesford. It would appear that he was married to Jane Cobley in a marriage dated 31st.May 1781 at Stonesby Church. (I have a copy of this information which I believe came via Hilary Thomas.)
