My research has taken be up to Richard Brown and the connection to his parents George and Esther Brown through their son George King Brown’s marriage to Maude Cecilia Hunt in 1870.  Any research on George and Esther’s children other than Richard has been supplied by Bob Hayes and another researcher Peter Cunningham at the Cunningham’s of Sudbury website hosted at Ancestry.com.   George’s father was William Brown.  He came from Longford, Ireland and Esther came from Cavan, Cavan, Ulster, Ireland.  The research will continue and updates will follow.
