Surname Saturday – Oh, There Are Browns A-Plenty!

But which Browns are our Browns? I expect that when I venture outside of the confirmed genealogical research my family has already done, I could very easily be led astray looking for such a common surname. One thing I do know for certain about the line of Browns from whom I am descended is that the line ended with my grandfather, Ronald Dalrymple Brown. He had two daughters, his uncles Frank and Williard each had a daughter, and his uncle Fred was childless.
