To get back to James Brown and Marjorie. James used to sail in vessels to Newfoundland. He met Marjorie at a ball in Charlottetown. It was a made match. He promised to come after her when fall came. James then went to Newfoundland and bought rings and figaries. He then came home and took up groomsman Gilbert McArthur.

James and Marjorie were married by Bishop McEachern at her uncle Donald MacDonald's home at Tracadie. Donald was Marjorie's mother's brother. There was a big wedding. Geb McArthur danced all night. The Bishop, on being asked what kind of fellow Brown would be for a young girl of 18, recommended him.

James and Marjorie were married in 1805.

They came home on horseback. James bought an old farm of 220 acres for 180 (not sure if in dollars or pounds). This money was paid to agent Lawyer James B. Palmer - father of the Palmers, C.C.B.
