I'm looking for any information on a Brown family that moved to Bermuda from Scotland or Ireland around 1870

Their names were Duncan Brown and Margaret Brown. Duncan Brown was a sapper with the Royal Engineers. They probably had two children, one of whom was called Robert William Brown, born in 1879. To date, in spite of my best efforts I have never found any information or ancestors.
