JAMES BROWN born 4 Nov.1833 in Cumbernauld, spent most of his life in Ayreshire, before immigrating to Australia on "Marco Polo" in 1856. His parents were MALCOLM BROWN and AGNES STEWART. There is a JAMES BROWN listed with the Meilke family of Waterside in the 1851 Census which might be him. I am hoping that someboby might find MALCOLM AGNES and JAMES BROWN listed together in the 1841 census or in an old church record. I can find nothing for Cumbernauld. There is a BROWN family that seems to have a connection but these people are not listed.
I would greatly appreciate any help... thanks, Beth
