News Story of Assault of William Brown & Death of Brother 1783
April 18, 1783. News Story of Assault of William Brown & Death of Brother 1783. Edinburgh Advertiser (Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland)
Last week a most melancholy accident happened at Kilmarnock; Mr. William Brown, writer, and his brother, being at Ayr, and coming home late, the toll-man at Nethertown demanded toll, as he said it was after twelve. A scuffle ensued, when the toll-man and his step-son struck them in such an inhuman manner, that the younger brother is dead, and Mr. Brown in the utmost danger. Both toll-man and step-son were confined in Ayr jail on Saturday last.

Alias Jean BROWN (EST 1774)

IGI - Jean Greg baptism 09 Sep 1761: AYR,AYR,SCOTLAND birth date: 08 Sep 1761 father's name: James Greg mother's name: Janet Henderson: C11578-7 Scotland-ODM

OPR AYR: 'Jean Greg lawful daughter to James Greg Dancing Master and Janet Henderson his spouse born 8th September 1761 and baptised 9th September'. This Jean is probably the Jean Gregg[P380] who married William Brown[P382] C.1779

OPR - 1791 Birth Ayr Ayrshire, Scotland. Jean Greg daughter: Law(Lawful) to James Greg, Dancing Master, and his spouse Janet Henderson, born Sep. 8th 1761, baptised 9th, by Mr William Dalrymple; witnesses were: Peter Millar and William Robison

We know that Jean's father was a Land Surveyer as stated on the birth record of her son William Wallace Brown. It is suggested by Matthew Greig[Gifnock] that Jean may have been daughter to James Greg[P437] and Janet Henderson[P438][F142-Ayr]. Likely in that two children to this marriage named James and Janet.
James was known as a Master of Manners and a Dance Master but Jeans father was also described as Land Surveyer on the birth record of her son William Wallace.
Jean had died by 1798 when a Petition raised on behalf of her daughter Janet DELLA Brown described Jean as the late spouse of William Brown
