Narrative

The most likely William Brown in the 1861 census would be the one in Lot 13 with a household of 12:
no children under 5
5-15 - one male, one female (Bernard, Ellen)
16-21 - 1 males, 2 females (James, Veronica, Helena?)
21-45 - 2 males, 3 females (William, Hugh, Henrietta, Margaret, Anne Marie)
45-60 - no males, one female Harriet?
over 60 - one male - William?

There was one married couple, let's assume William and Harriet.

In the article in the Island Magazine about Seymour's visit to Lot 13, two Brown farms are mentioned.
