The beginnings of colonial Maine: 1602-1658: An early document in the records of Bristol England mentions this John Brown as a son of Richard Brown of Barton Regis in Gloucester England and adds that he married Margaret daughter of Francis Hayward of Bristol. It is supposed that he came to the Maine coast directly from Bristol probably in one of the fishing or trading vessels of that prosperous city. He not only became the possessor of the large tract of land above mentioned but in 1639 he purchased of the Indians land at what was then known as Naquasset now Woolwich on the Kennebec a little above Bath but on the eastern side of the river and thither he removed.
