Brown, Mary--late 1700s to 1800s


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the Mary Brown that married Joseph Twiss or Twist in 1814. I would like to find when and where she was born, who her parents were, and whether or not she had any siblings and if so, their names. I'm finding it nigh impossible considering there were a lot of Browns! I don't know if she came from somewhere else, or what.


I did find that there was a Jane Brown married in 1815 to a Joseph Hart, and Joseph Twist was one of the witnesses, but I don't know if it was my Joseph Twist or not. Please help!


ETA more information:


This is what it says on the Lancashire Online Parish website:

Joseph Twist - Engineer, Bachelor, this Parish
Mary Brown - (X), Spinster, this Parish

Mary Brown - Birth 1796 in Ashton-in-Makerfield or Haydock, Lancashire, England Death 7 August 1866 in Smithy Row, Haydock, Lancashire, England. Buried 8th August 1866 at St. Thomas, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Lancashire, England. Mary Twiss - of Smithy Row, Florida, Haydock - Age 67 years.


Mary's father could possibly be a Richard Brown born about 1770 and married to Esther?

Yes, that's Joseph..where did you get the information on Mary? I have her marriage record and some censuses, and they have her being born anywhere from 1794 to 1799. I think I have her death record, too. Some of the sources say she was from Windle, some say Ashton, some say Haydock, etc.
