John BROWN From Denmark To Australia
Ray Robert
- Close

John Brown , a 26 year-old Butcher , marrried Mary  Reilly at Grafton , New South Wales , Australia , in 1867.

John Brown was from somewhere in Denmark

Mary Reilly was from Ballyconnell , County Cavan ,Ireland

I am trying to follow in the footseps of this couple and their families.

Finding and following the right Mr and Mrs Brown has proven to be very difficult.......

This Brown family was at Grafton until at least 1881.... Some time after 1881 they seemed to have just disappeared in to thin air................................................................

The BROWN family left Grafton , New South Wales , Australia , at some unknown time .

Mary Brown ( nee Reilly ) died 20th February , 1910 , aged about 64 years. The death was registered at Paddington , NSW Registration 2695.

One of Mary Brown's daughters , Annie Hall ( nee Brown ) also died in 1910 , aged about

27 years  . Her death was registered at Redfern , NSW Registration 15190 .

There is still no sign of John Brown's death . It is thought to have occurred between 1893 and 1898.  Without knowing  the names of John Brown's parents , in Denmark , it is 

extremely difficult to locate the 'right' John Brown.
