Hi StA, and a very warm welcome to the forum.
Re Wynols Hill House, if you try searching this forum (see search box top right) you can find a few prior threads where it's mentioned, indeed it's possible this will work for yr Brown family queries too.

Ref the House, this website about the P.O.W. Camp 61 states it was demolished soon after WW2. These links are prob best opended in a new tab/window.

The above info was also mentioned in this prior thread
http://forum.forest-of-dean.net/index.php?id=35268

Photos of the house, and an article abt mineowner William Brown, here

This prior thread is about Amos William Brown, mother nee Martin, who I think may be the same man your looking for ?

--------------

An Amos Brown is mentioned in the superb Lightmoor site's histories of two FoD pits near to Coleford, Speedwell and Union. The Union reference shows he was present at the disaster of 1902 which claimed four lives due to flooding.
