  • Notes 
    • From Massachusetts and Maine Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis, citation details below:

      The Parish of St. Edmund's, Salisbury, had been a stronghold of Puritanism since the resignation of Rev. Hugh Williams and the induction of Rev. Peter Thacher as rector by Bishop Davenport in 1622/3. Mr. Francis Dove, twice mayor of the city, was one of the wardens of St. Edmund's, and it is not surprising to find Christian Brown and her family, under his advice and protection, joining the group of their fellow parishioners who ventured forth from old Salisbury in 1638 to found a new Salisbury on the western continent where the persecution of Archbishop Laud could not follow them.

      The courageous widow appears on the undated list of the first settlers of Salisbury, in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, among whom the common lands of the new town were first divided. She also received lands in the divisions of 1640 and 1641. She did not long survive the hardships which her adventure must have imposed upon her, however, and her death is recorded on December 28, 1641.
