Benjamin ELLIS would appear to be William BROWN's grandson……

on Curiousfox - May 2008, Coleford, Gloucestershire - the following message

'My great great grandfather was William BROWN, colliery proprietor; born around 1824 and married Arabella (or Allabella?) Census info says they were both born locally, but no record of their birth of marriage so far, still searching. Irish connection?

Son AMOS lived in WYNOLS HILL MASON in Broadwell, other children ARABELLA, FANNY, BENJAMIN, JANE and EMMA my great grandmother (died 1940) who married SAMUEL ELLIS, their son BENJAMIN my grandfather was a colliery owner in business with Benjamin BROWN.

Emma and Samuel ELLIS also had Amos, Enoch, Alice, Ruth William and Samuel.

I am trying to trace any descendants of William BROWN (all his great great grandchildren) and also find out about his ancestry'
