Henry Brown was born 1746 who I have attributed to being the father of John Brown. The records show he was a sojouner and agricultural labourer, so he was down as a sojourner as he probably traveled around going from farm to farm where workers were needed for the plowing or harvest but returning home between times., and from the parish point of view he would not be entitled to any poor relief.

He married a Mary WILLY from Kingsbury Episcopi but where did he come from?

Have I attributed the wrong father to John?

John first married Ann MEAD and shortly after her death in 1799 he married Elizabeth MUNCKTON.
