He and twenty-eight others signed the following compact: 'We, whose names are underwritten, do acknowledge ourselves the legal subjects of his majesty, King Charles, and in his name do hereby bind ourselves into a civil body politicke, unto his laws, according to matters of justice." [The Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, citation details below.]

    The identity of his children's mother is unknown. He married, second, between 1657 and 1659, Frances, widow of George Parker.

    William S. Hornor's statement (citation details below) that he died in Monmouth County, New Jersey is probably due to confusion of this Nicholas Brown with his son Nicholas Brown. This Nicholas Brown's will was made and proved at Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
