  1. 2.  Peter Brown was born Abt 1632; died 9 Mar 1692; was buried , Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut.

    Notes:

    He is reported in accounts dating from the 1700s to the early 20th century to have been a son of Peter Brown of the Mayflower. His descendant the abolitionist John Brown (d. 1859) certainly believed this to have been the case. But as Donald Lines Jacobus summarized in his 1957 article "Peter Brown of Windsor" (citation details below), the evidence is against it. Most notably, land deeds from 1647 to 1679 show that the Mayflower Peter Brown's land had been divided between three daughters, which argues against any son, named Peter or otherwise, having been alive at the death of Mayflower Peter Brown in 1633.

    Peter Brown (~1632-1692) = Mary Gillett (~1638-1719)
    John Brown (1668-1729) = Elizabeth Loomis (1671-1723)
    John Brown (1700-1790) = Mary Eggleston (1702-1789)
    John Brown (1728-1776) = Hannah Owen (1740-1831)
    Owen Brown (1771-1856) = Ruth Mills (1772-1808)
