Notes:

ref: "Genealogical Register of the Descendants in the Male Line of David Atwater":
"Francis Brown came with the 50 men reported as passengers on the ship Hector and Consort who arrived at Boston on June 26, 1637. In September of that year, he came to Connecticut with the Eaton and Davenport colony, which settled New Haven, and was one of the seven men left there to pass the winter of 1637-8 in a hut erected at the corner of College and George Steets, the remainder of the party returning to Boston to return with their families the following spring. In the division of land, Francis Brown was on of the 'Seven' who 'dwelt on the bank side' (eastern end of Water street fronting the harbor). He was a tailor by trade, and for a time operated the ferry at Red Rock over the 'East' River."

In town records of 1656, Francis "who is troubled with the tisick, and many times unfit for that service, was so farr freed that when by that meanes he is hindered the fine shall not be required; he promising now that, when God inables him, he will attend it." (training)


After Francis' death, Mary married William Paine in 1679.
