Biography

This Peter appears to be the son of Peter Brown of Hawkedon, England. Hinman indicates that by "tradition" he was the son of a different Peter Brown, the more notable passenger on the Mayflower in 1620. He proceeds to cast doubt with his further analysis.[1] Other well known sources for this Mayflower passenger do not mention a son Peter. His father would therefore seem to be a different Peter Brown. He died in 1692 at the age of 60.[2]

Marriage and Children

Peter Brown was born about 1632, possibly in Plymouth or Duxbury, Massachusetts. His father was also named Peter. He moved to Windsor, Connecticut before 1658, when he married Mary Gillette on July 15. He was admitted to the church in Windsor in 1662. Peter and Mary had twelve children, all born in Windsor.

Peter Brown's will was dated on August 17, 1689. In it, he mentions his wife Mary, his four sons; Peter, John, Jonathan & Cornelius, and six of his eight daughters; Mary, Hepsibah, Esther, Isabell, Daborah & Sarah. The two married daughters are not named. Peter died on March 9, 1691/2 in Windsor and the will was proved on April 13, 1692. Mary lived until 1719. Peter is buried in the Palisado Cemetery in Windsor.

Spouse: Mary Gillett Brown (1638 - 1719)

Peter married Mary Gillett. They had 12 children:

Nothing is known about the ancestry of Peter Browne. The royal lineage that has been published is totally without basis, and no documentary evidence has ever been presented to show who the parents of Peter Browne actually were.

It has been suggested that Peter Browne may have come from Great Burstead, Billericay, Essex, but that claim is simply based on the fact that there was a Peter Brown taxed there in 1624, and since names tend to run in families maybe he was somehow related. No evidence has ever been shown to suggest the two are related, however. Peter Browne is known to have had a brother John, who came to Plymouth and took up residence in Duxbury."

The current view is that there is no evidence that Peter Brown of Mayflower is the father of this Peter Brown.
