That's Peter he died Newton le willows or Newton in makerfield as it was called then can I ask how did you find the details of William that's defo him thank you


lancashireAnn Report 30 Dec 2012 13:52

several trees on ancestry has him born on 19/2/1800 but no source given and they all look as if they have been copied from each other.

All have Peter dying in 1883 but one says in California the rest in Newton -le-Willows (Newton in Mackerfield)!

Newton. Order of filiation and maintenance of William, bastard child of Peter Brown, weaver, and Elizabeth Singleton, singlewoman
Date 20 Feb 1822


brummiejan Report 30 Dec 2012 12:14

There is an Ancestry tree which has his parents as Peter Brown (1766-1830) and Mary Ann Lawson. No corroborating evidence is shown however.
