About Elizabeth Brown (Pendleton)

Note: 6 children Elizabeth Pendleton (Caleb), was baptized 25 Jun, 1699 (First Ch. Stonington, Conn.) She married Jonathan Brown. In the settlement of Caleb Pendleton's estate, Jonathan Brown gave the executor, Benoni Smith, a receipt for his wife, Elizabeth Brown, who was named in Caleb's will as 'my daughter, Elizabeth Brown' (Westerly C & P rec., iii, 330). This Jonathan Brown was undoubtedly Elizabeth's first cousin, Jonathan, born 12 July 1694, son of Eleazer and Ann (Pendleton) Brown, as is indicated by the names of their children and by the fact that they lived upon the land inherited by Ann from her father, James Pendleton. No list of the children of Janathan and Elizabeth (Pendleton) Brown appears upon the vital records of Westerly, but the land and probate records of the town give us four of their names as follows: On the 14th of June 1756, Jonathan Brown and Elizabeth, his wife, conveyed to William 'Brumley' [Bromley] land in Westerly (W.L.E., ix, 218). The index to this record reads, 'William Brumbley from his father Brown.' William Bromley had married Elizabeth Brown, 9 November 1743. The land records show further that Jonathan Brown and his wife, Elizabeth, made deeds of gift to their sons, Eleazer and Ebenezer, on the 23th June, 1714, and the 3rd January, 1764, respectively (Ibid., v.324 and x,7). They also deeded five acres to their son, 'Bryan' adjoining William Bromley's land, 3rd January, 1764 (Ibid., x, 5), and sold land to William William Vincent, 14th June 1756 (Ibid., x, 218). On the same day 'Bryan' Brown and Mehitalde, his wife, deeded land to William Vincent. On the 27th March, 1769, 'Mrs. Elizabeth Brown, wife of Jonathan Brown, represented that her husband had sold his farm and is about to move into some distant land and one third the money said land sold for was paid to Benjamin Wilbur by her Request for her support, and she not having security for same requests that town council that they would receive the money from Wilbur for her use and support in her old age.' (C & P. Rec., iv, 123). Now on the 25th December 1769, it was voted by the Town Council to pay the Town Treasurer 1 pound 9 1/4d. for 'Briant' Brown's taxes out of the money received from Benjamin Wilbur and belonging to Mrs. Elizabeth Brown (Ibid., iv, 136). Furthermore, on the 15th July, 1762, Ebenezer Brown declared 'that in the year 1756 he heard his brother Eleazer say that if he never came back he gave his son Jesse Brown to his brother Bryant Brown to do by as his own son & further saith that his said brother died soon after.' Elizabeth Brown also declared she her her son Eleazer make this statement a little before his death (C & P Rec., iv, 13). Besides these four children Jonathan and Elizabeth were undoubtedly the parents of that Jonathan Brown, entry of whose marriage upon the records of the Second Church of Stonington (now North Stonington) refers to him as 'of Westerly'. The contemporaneous Jonathan Brown, Jr., of Stonington, son of Jonathan and Hannah (Richardson) Brown, was only ten years old at this time.' An item on page 28 of Book III, Westerly 'Town Meetings,' also indicated that another child should be included in this family, as it states that 'Jonathan Hankes and Hannah Brown, daughter to Jonathan Brown of Westerly,' were married in 1752.
