Peter Brown Family History

Mary Brown witness to birth


Certificate provided by Perry Streeter (
Children of William Faulconer & Elizabeth Streeter:

Thomas Faulkner, born 27 March 1775, as witnessed by Mary Wood and Mary Browne
Ann Faulkner, born 16 March 1777, as witnessed by Mary Wood, Mary Browne and Sarah Chart.

It’s highly like that Mary Browne and the other women who witnessed the Streeter-Faulkner births were married women (and perhaps older) who had personal experience in giving birth.

The only other likely person was Mary Shone , second wife of Jacob Browne 1712
