Primary events

  • Birth: Robert Brown was born circa 1809 in Unknown.
  • MARR_NOT: He and Margaret Martin were not married, but were a couple. If this marriage occurred at all, it may not have been before Robert Martin BROWN was born as Margaret listed as Margaret MARTIN in the birth registration. In addition, the marriage is only 'estimated' in Tasmanian Link, meaning the compilers of this database have not found a record of it in Tasmania. The only Robert Brown I can find who died before Margaret married James WALPOLE was aged 65 when he died, but of course, if she never married he did not have to die before she married James Henry.
  • Death: Robert died on 28 November 1874 in Brickfields Dept., Tasmania, Australia, If this was the Robert Brown in question the dates would be correct as Margaret may have married him in 1873 and married Robert Walpole in 1875.
