    The following Deed of Land, purchased by Thomas Browne, Jr. joined his home land on the south. He may have deeded it to his son Thomas, as he deeded another tract of land, east, to his son Daniel, which was "witnessed and signed and sealed the twenty-fifth of January, One Thousand Seven Hundred twenty one-two, in ye Seventh year of his Majestie's Reign -- George King of Great Britain."
    At any rate, on this newly acquired land Thomas Brown built his house and his successor was his son Samuel, and here were born his children. Samuel Brown in this connection follows, and he gives to his youngest son, Prentice Brown, by will, this same homestead. From Prentice this estate came to his adopted daughter, who married Cogswell T. Miner. This family was the last to hold possession of this farm in lineal descent. It is now owned in 1914, by the heirs of the late Hermon C. Brown. The house itself, doubtless built by Thomas Brown, which has been the home for succeeding generations of those above mentioned, has passed out of existence.

BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol II, by Cyrus Henry Brown, p.

Elizabeth married James PENDLETON, son of Caleb PENDLETON and Elizabeth COTTRELL, on 6 Jan 1717/1718 in Westerly, Kings Co., Rhode Island. James was born about 1689 in Westerly, Kings Co., Rhode Island and was christened 23 Jul 1693 in 1st Church of Stonington, Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut. He died 9 Jun 1753 in Westerly, Kings Co., Rhode Island.

BRIAN PENDLETON AND HIS DESCENDANTS, 1599-1910, Compiled by Everett Hall Pendleton, Privatley Printed MCMX, found in the DAR Library, Washington, DC. Page 65.
    27. James-4 Pendleton (Caleb-3), was born about 1689, probably at Westerly, RI, and died there 9 June 1753. James Pendleton was baptized with his father on the 23rd Jul 1693, in the First Church at Stonington, Conn. He seems to have made his home at Westerly all his life, where he engaged in farming. On the 24th of Dec 1727, he bought of his cousin, Sarah-4 Walker, for 10s, all her rights that she had in a certain tract of land "That was given to my Honrd. Grandfather Capt. James Pendleton deceased, by reason of his services in ye Indian War formerly, which land is in ye township of Voluntown, Conn." (W.L.E.)
    On the 19th of November 1731, James-4 bought of Richard Lanphere, "Eldest son and heir to Mr. George Lanphere, late of Westerly, dec.," part of George Lanphere's homestead farm for 100 pounds (Ibid., v, 347); 18th March 1743/3, James and his father Caleb, gave deed in James' son, Thomas Pendelton, of land in Westerly (Ibid., iv, 44). On the 28 January, 1744/5, James Pendleton was given a certificate of residence in the selectmen of Voluntown, Conn. (Westerly C. & P. rec., ii, 400), but we do not know whether he ever went there or not.
    James-4 Pendleton married (1), at Westerly, RI, 12th Jan 1709/10, Elizabeth Lanphere (T.R.) daughter of George Lanphere, ; Pendleton signed an agreement with the other heirs of Lanphere, 25 April 1727 (C.& P. rec., 1719-1731, p. 136). He married (2), at Westerly 6th January, 1717/18, Elizabeth Brown, daughter of Thomas, Jr. (T.R.) and Hannah (Collins) Brown. She was born at Stonington, Conn., 9th May 1694. On the 23rd March, 1735, she owned covenant to the Stonington Church. She survived her husband many years and in her old age the Town Council of Westerly made provision for her support from 1772 to 1776, during part of which time her son Samuel was paid for her maintenance.
     James Pendleton's will confirms the following list of his children, which appears in the Westerly records.

They had the following children:

+ 82 M i Thomas PENDLETON was born 3 Jan 1718/1719 and died about 1809.
+ 83 M ii Samuel PENDLETON was born 21 Sep 1720.

BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol I, by Cyrus Henry Brown, pp. 13 & 14 & Vol. II, page 150.
   Daniel Brown (24), son of Thomas (2) and Hannah (Collins) Brown, born Stonington, Conn., Oct. 9, 1696; died Aug. 30, 1771, in the seventy-fifth year of his age. Interment on the Christopher Brown farm, two miles south of Pendleton Hill.
     Married first, Mary Breed, dau. of John and Mary (Palmer) Breed, June 21, 1721. She died 1744. The marriage certificate says; "Married, June 21, 1721, by Rev. Hezekiah Lord, Pastor of the Church in Preston, Conn."
    Married second, Prudence, who died Dec. 2, 1768, age sixty-nine years. She had no children. In 1722 his father, Thomas (2), deeded to his son a tract of land about one mile east from his homestead, nine months after his marriage to Mary Breed. Here Daniel and Mary built their house. The original site of the house is seen by the cut, where on the same spot Nathan (60), his son erected a new house.
    We find that Daniel (24) removed to the north part of the town, near his son Capt. Christopher (59). He was active in church work, living in the immediate vicinity where the First Baptist Meeting-house was built; in Stonington he and Thomas Holmes gave the land on which it was erected. The church was organized in 1743. Probably the first interments on the Christopher Brown farm were his first wife, Mary (Breed) Brown, in 1744; afterwards, his second wife, Prudence, in 1768; Daniel in 1771. Their headstones were imported from England. This burying ground is enclosed by a heavy stone wall. Years ago this enclosure of the dead is said to have been well kept; at present the grounds need attention, where these honored dead rest.

Daniel married (1) Mary Palmer BREED, daughter of John BREED and Mercy PALMER, on 21 Jun 1721 in Preston, New London Co., Connecticut, by Rev. Hezekiah Lord, Pastor. Mary was born 8 Jan 1697 in Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut and was christened 18 Jul 1697 in Road Church, Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut. She died 1744 in Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut and was buried in Christopher Brown Cemetery, No. Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut.

Elizabeth was christened 25 Jun 1699.

BRIAN PENDLETON AND HIS DESCENDANTS, 1599-1910, Compiled by Everett Hall Pendleton, Privatley Printed MCMX, found in the DAR Library, Washington, DC. Page 69.
    31. Elizabeth-4 Pendleton (Caleb-3), was baptized 25 Jun, 1699 (First Ch. Stonington, Conn.) She married Jonathan Brown. In the settlement of Caleb-3 Pendleton's estate, Jonathan Brown gave the executor, Benoni Smith, a receipt for his wife, Elizabeth Brown, who was named in Caleb's will as "my daughter, Elizabeth Brown" (Westerly C & P rec., iii, 330). This Jonathan Brown was undoubtedly Elizabeth's first cousin, Jonathan-4, born 12 July 1694, son of Eleazer (11) and Ann-3 )Pendleton) Brown, as is indicated by the names of their children and by the fact that they lived upon the land inherited by Ann-3 from her father, James-2 Pendleton.
    No list of the children of Janathan and Elizabeth -4 (Pendleton) Brown appears upon the vital records of Westerly, but the land and probate records of the town give us four of their names as follows:
     On the 14th of June 1756, Jonathan Brown and Elizabeth, his wife, conveyed to William "Brumley" [Bromley] land in Westerly (W.L.E., ix, 218). The index to this record reads, "William Brumbley from his father Brown." William Bromley had married Elizabeth Brown, 9 November 1743. The land records show further that Jonathan Brown and his wife, Elizabeth, made deeds of gift to their sons, Eleazer and Ebenezer, on the 23th June, 1714, and the 3rd January, 1764, respectively (Ibid., v.324 and x,7). They also deeded five acres to their son, "Bryan" adjoining William Bromley's land, 3rd January, 1764 (Ibid., x, 5), and sold land to William William Vincent, 14th June 1756 (Ibid., x, 218). On the same day "Bryan" Brown and Mehitalde, his wife, deeded land to William Vincent.
    On the 27th March, 1769, "Mrs. Elizabeth Brown, wife of Jonathan Brown, represented that her husband had sold his farm and is about to move into some distant land and one third the money said land sold for was paid to Benjamin Wilbur by her Request for her support, and she not having security for same requests that town council that they would receive the money from Wilbur for her use and support in her old age." (C & P. Rec., iv, 123).
    Now on the 25th December 1769, it was voted by the Town Council to pay the Town Treasurer 1 pound 9 1/4d. for "Briant" Brown's taxes out of the money received from Benjamin Wilbur and belonging to Mrs. Elizabeth Brown (Ibid., iv, 136). Furthermore, on the 15th July, 1762, Ebenezer Brown declared "that in the year 1756 he heard his brother Eleazer say that if he never came back he gave his son Jesse Brown to his brother Bryant Brown to do by as his own son & further saith that his said brother died soon after." Elizabeth Brown also declared she her her son Eleazer make this statement a little before his death (C & P Rec., iv, 13).
    Besides these four children Jonathan and Elizabeth were undoubtedly the parents of that Jonathan Brown, entry of whose marriage upon the records of the Second Church of Stonington (now North Stonington) refers to him as "of Westerly". The contemporaneous Jonathan Brown, Jr., of Stonington, son of Jonathan and Hannah (Richardson) Brown, was only ten years old at this time."
    An item on page 28 of Book III, Westerly "Town Meetings," also indicated that another child should be included in this family, as it states that "Jonathan Hankes and Hannah Brown, daughter to Jonathan Brown of Westerly," were married in 1752.

BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol II, Boston, The Everett Press Co., 1915, by Cyrus Henry Brown, page 217.
    They lived upon land inherited by Ann Pendleton from her father, James. No list of children of Jonathan and Elizabeth (Pendleton) Brown appears upon the vital records of Westerly, but the land and probate records of the town give us four of their names. From the foregoing records we may set down the issue of Jonathan and Elizabeth Brown in about the following order.
