Family: Thomas Brown (b. 8 January 1779)

Biography

Birthabout 1781Lydia Armstrong was born about 1781 in South Kingstown, Washington County, Rhode Island. The Coggeshall Genealogy says that Thomas married an Armstrong, dau. of Capt. Nathaniel Armstrong, as his first wife. There is a grave in the Brown Lot, where Thomas and his second wife are buried, for Lydia A Brown, 1781 - 6 Jul 1816. Also, Lydia Armstrong Brown was born to Thomas and his second wife Margaret Knowles in 1818. It was common to name a baby after a first deceased wife. I am speculating that Thomas's first wife was Lydia Armstrong Brown.1,2
MarriageThomas Brown and she were married, date unknown Perhaps her name was Lydia, since Thomas had a daughter named Lydia Armstrong Brown, who died in childhood.1
Death6 July 1816She died on 6 July 1816 in South Kingstown, Washington County, Rhode Island,2
Burial8 July 1816She was buried on 8 July 1816 at Peleg Brown Lot in South Kingstown, Washington County, Rhode Island. The inscription on her gravestone confirms that this was the first wife of Thomas.
"In Memorial
Lydia A. Brown
the wife of
Thomas Brown, Esq.
died July 6, 1816
Aged 35 years 6 mo."

I cannot read the years of age, but I see that the Rhode Island Historical Cemetery Commission has extrapolated her birth year to 1781, so it must read 35. They note that legibility is good, but for some reason they do not transcribe the inscription!2

Biography

Family HistoryInformation on the original Champlin immigrant. From information on FamilySearch.org, originally from a researcher named Bill Hunter, date unknown.

"On Jeffrey or (Geoffrey) Champlin I, he & his spouse had 3 children: Jeffrey II,William & Christopher. They were the beginning of the Champlin clan in the New World from England. No connection is traceable between the French Champlain family. The surname "Champlin" occured in several counties in England.Jeffrey first appeared on the Island of Aquidneck, now Rhode Island, in 1638. He was first at Pocasset (Portsmouth) in 1640, on the north end of the island, and moved then with a portion of the settlers to Newport in the following year. It was founded by Anne Hutchinson and her small group of religious liberitarians. Admitted as an inhabitant, on the "24th, 11 month, 1638" and a freeman on "9, Sept. 1640," the name appears in the Roll of Freemen in 1641 and 1655. He was granted with Richard Searle, 40 acres of land, in 1640. Later, he bought Searle's share and another share from William Cowley in 1641. There were other real estate transactions and his name appears in list of free inhabitants of Westerly in 1669. He returned to Newport in 1675-76 during King Philip's war, and is mentioned in confirmation of a deed by Jeffrey Champlin II, his son, in 1695 as "my deceased father." Married in Newport before 1650, the name of his wife was not preserved. All three of his children left descendents. They resided in Portsmouth, Newport, and then Westerly. Jeffery was called Captain in 1690 when he was the Commandant of the British Army in Kingstown. In his will, sons William and Christopher have full power to dispose of his house and land.Jeffrey Champlin I, is believed to have been born at, or near, Bideford (Devonshire), England, about 1621. While this date is unsubstantiated, it is likely to be a fairly accurate approximation as Jeffrey's children were born in the 1650's and he died at Westerly, Rhode Island, sometimebetween 1688 and 1695. He is believed to have been buried with his son William in the family cemetery located on William's farm. This burial ground is known today as the Westerly Historical Cemetery #03 and/or the Wilcox Lot. The long abandoned cemetery is located in the midst of a tangled stand of bull briars along the south side of Shore Road between Westerly and Dunn's Corners. On May 5, 1995, I located this burial ground. There were many small unmarked stones scattered throughout, and the all but impenetrable bull briars made it impossible to get near most of them at that time of year. William's stone, which was made of shale, was found and a faint inscription was still readable. Other stones bore even fainter inscriptions and were usually surrounded by several other stones that appeared to be nothing more than odd shaped rocks jutting out of the ground. During the American Revolution, many of the early vital records of Rhode Island were destroyed by fire. Other records were removed by the British and sent to New York for safe keeping. The ship that was used to transport these records sank in New York harbor before its cargo could be unloaded. Eventually, some of these vital records were recovered but most were no longer readable. The last known recorded mention of Jeffrey during his lifetime was made in 1688. In 1695, his eldest son (Jeffrey II) refers to his father in a document confirming a deed by saying: "Know all men by these presents that I, Jeffrey Champlin of Kingstown do own and acknowledge that my brother William Champlin and Brother Christopher Champlin have full power to dispose of that house and hundred acres of land which was my disceased father's - - which lies in Westerly for acknowledgement hereunto I have set my hand in the year 1695, December the 6th." It is not known how Jeffrey Champlin I came to the New World (or when), but there are reports that he was in Boston as early as 1627. The first white settlement on Aquidneck was established in March of 1638 on the north end of that island. The settlement was called "Pocasset" until 1640 when it was renamed "Portsmouth" - the name it retains to this day. Pocasset was founded by Anne Hutchinson and her small group of religious libertarians. They had met in the Boston home of prominent merchant William Coddington on March 7, 1638. The members of this small group was greatly at odds with and frequently harassed by Massachusetts' ruling Puritans. Hutchinson's group called themselvesthe "Bodie Politick" and drew up a compact in much the same way as did the Mayflower passengers. Their sworn agreement read as follows: "We, whose names are underwritten, do here solomly, in the presence of Jehovah, incorporate ourselves into a Bodie Politick, and as He shall help, will submit ourselves, lives and estates unto our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and to all those perfect and most absolute laws of His given to us in His Holy Word of truth, to be guided and judged thereby." This compact was signed by Anne & William Hutchinson, William Coddington, Henry Bull, John Clarke, John Coggeshall, William Aspinwall, William Dyer, Nicholas Easton, (an illegible name), William Baulstone, John Sanford, Philip Sherman, John Walker, Samuel Wilbour, Richard Carder and William Freeborn. Coddington purchased the island of Aquidneck from the Indians and the group founded Pocasset in April of 1638. The following, taken from the records of that colony, show that Jeffrey Champlin I was likely there from the very beginning: "On the 28th of the 2nd month 1639, upon the complainte of Jeffrey Champlin in the behalf of a debt due to William Cowly and himself from Mr. Aspinwall, warrent was granted forth, for the attachment of his shallopp till both that debt and other actions of the case be satisfied and discharged by him." (Note: under the Julian Calendar in use at the time, the 2nd month was April and 1639 would have been 1638 today). A power struggle between Coddington and Hutchinson, based on religious interpretations and applications to daily life, developed soon afterthe settlement began. Shortly afterward, Coddington and his supporters (John Clarke, Nicholas Easton, John Coggeshall, William Brenton, Jeremy Clarke, Thomas Hazard, Jeffrey Champlin, Henry Bull, William Dyer and Robert Jeffries) left Pocasset and migrated to the southern end of Aquidneck Island, establishing a new colony which became known as Newport. Jeffrey was registered as an inhabitant of Newport on November 24, 1638, was made a Freeman there on September 14, 1640, and granted 10 acres of land. That same year, the Pocasset and Newport settlements united upon the libertarian rules of Pocasset and William Coddington was made the Colony's first governor. At Newport, Jeffrey engaged in the buying and selling of property and was thought to have become a cordwainer. Cordwainers were leatherworkers who made use of cordovan (a soft, colored leather usually madeof sheep, goat or dog skin, or split horse hide) to design and make custom made shoes. This was considered to be a pre-eminent profession in those days. In the "Colonial and Land Records" the following account of Jeffrey's acquisition of land is given: "Whereas, according to certain orders, made for the establishing and giving Assurance of the Land, Be it known, Therefore that Geoffrey Champlin and Richard Sarle, having exhibited their acquaintances, under the Treasurer's hand, of Newport,wherein appears fully satisfaction to be given, for the number of twenty Acres of Land, Lying within the precincts of such bounds as the Committee, by Order appointed, did bound it withal, together with ten acres apiece given and granted to them gratis, by the Towne, for and in consideration of Service done by them, which number, together with the former, amounting to Forty acres, is thus laid forth. Four acres apiece for home lots, lying in the Towne, and six acres apiece, lying next to William Cowly's land and adjoined upon Thomas Hazard's land, a highway passing there-through, with half a Cow's hay in harbour Marsh lying at the first Entrance, and three acres of Marsh, lying at Sachnet, next the falls, Mr. Smith's Marsh, lying on the South Eastside thereof, with, another parcel of Sixteen acres, more less, lying....." (remainder of entry missing - possibly burned). Soon after the granting of this land in 1640, Jeffrey bought out the portions belonging to Richard Searle and William Cowley and sold both to Henry Bull: "Memorandum that Geoffrey Champlin of Newport, having bought and purchased of Wm .Cowley and Richard Sarle their parts and portions of land in that field that lay between ye Land granted toThomas Hazard and Edward Robinson at ye South end of ye Towne, and Geoffrey had made over and sold unto Henry Bull of ye said Towne, for a valuable consideration given and received, whereon ye Geoffrey doth disclaime all interest in ye said Land and doth acknowledge full propriety to belong to Henry Bull, his heirs, executors, administrators and assignes to ye world's end." This transfer took place late in 1644. Jeffrey purchased twenty acres located on the east side of Robert Griffin's property from Adam Mott, Sr. in 1646. He sold ten acres "adjoining his house lot" (Newport) to William Brenton of Boston in 1657. He was a witness to the sale of some property by Roger Williams to Richard Smith: Newport the 3d of ye 7th month Soe called 1651. This writing testifieth that I, Roger Williams of Providence, for and in Consideration of fifty pounds already received have Sold and Demised unto Mr. Richard Smith of Portsmouth on Road Island, his heirs & assignes for ever, my tradeing house at Narragansett, together with two Iron Guns or murderers, there Lyeing as also my fields & fenceing aboute the said House, is also the use of the island for goats which the old Sachem, deceased, Lent me for that use, for confirmation of all which I Set my hand & Seal ye day and year aforesaid." Roger Williams & seale. In the presence of Thomas Newton, Jeffere Champlain John Roome, William Holmes. While in Newport, Jeffrey married. Again, the destruction of vital records has prevented us from knowing the date of this union or the certain identity of his wife - although it is believed that her name was Ulalia (or Eulalia) daughter of John Garde and Rebecca Copp. She was baptised on February 5, 1632, at Bideford, England, and died sometime around 1656 or 1657, as references to her dowry ceased as of this time in Jeffrey's various legal documents.It is believed by some (notably, Champlin genealogist William J. Hunter of Ottawa, Ontario) that Jeffrey may even have been married twice. According to Hunter, Jeffrey would have had to have served as an apprentice shoemaker in England before coming to the New World, as there were no shoemakers among the early Rhode Island settlers for him to apprentice under. He probably married his first wife in England as there is no mention of his marrying in Rhode Island, and the laws being what they were, he would not have been granted as large an amount of land in Newport in 1640 as he did if he wasn't already married. His home lot occupied the block along the south side of Mary Street, from Spring Street west to Water Street and south to the waterfront. Whoever she was, Jeffrey's first wife must have died prior to 1650, as she would have been rather old (for that era) and married too long to suddenly start bearing children in the 1650's. Thus, Jeffrey probably married for a second time around 1649-1650 with his second wife (presumably Ulalie) being the mother of his three sons. Both wives mayhave been members of the Garde family. This certainly was true of Jeffrey's brother, William Champlin. William, who never came to the New World, married sisters Rebecca (in 1641) and Mary Garde -daughters of Roger Garde of Bideford. John Garde (son of Roger) migrated from Bideford to Fayal (Azores) and then to Rhode Island by1638. He and Jeffrey owned land in the Pocasset area and when John Garde (1604-1665) and his wife "Harte" (born 1605) died, they were buried on Jeffrey's farm at Newport. Many years later, their bodieswere removed and interred in the Newport City Cemetery by Jeffrey's youngest son, Christopher. John and Harte (-?-) Garde had a daughter, Charlotte, born in 1626. She may have been the second wife of Jeffrey Champlin. It should be pointed out that the name "Eulalia" is of Portuguese origin. In 1661, Jeffrey migrated to the region of Misquamicut along the Pawcatuck River (in the western part of what is modern day Rhode Island) with another group of dissatisfied settlers comprising 24 other families. There, they founded the town of Westerly - Jeffrey signing a document which purchased Misquamicut from Chief Socoa in 1661. About 75 people signed this document but only a few actually removed to what was to become Westerly. He took the oath of allegianceto Rhode Island on May 17, 1671, and three days later he was fined 20 shillings for refusing jury duty. Jeffrey was elected to the Westerly Town Council in 1680 and was Moderator of the Westerly Town Meetings from 1680-1684. He was Deputy in the Rhode Island Assembly from1681-1686. In 1685, Jeffrey was assigned to "survey highways." By 1669, Jeffrey had sold all of his properties in Newport - the last seeming to be a 40 acre tract (which included his home lot and dwelling) that was purchased by Walter Clarke. In the deed of transfer, Jeffrey was called a shoemaker. In 1675-76, during King Phillip's War, Jeffrey sought refuge in Newport, returning to Westerly after the defeat of the Pequots in1677. Note: While commonly referred to as "Rhode Island" the actual name of the smallest of the 50 states is: RHODE ISLAND AND THE PROVIDENCE PLANTATIONS. It is comprised, for the most part, of an inverted horseshoe shaped mainland in the middle of which lies a large island known as Rhode Island. Aquidneck was the original name for RHODE ISLAND (the island); and the PROVIDENCE PLANTATIONS referred tothose mainland colonies or "plantations" which were founded by Roger Williams (Providence), Samuel Gorton (Shawumet) and William Arnold (Pawtucket). Many people contend that Jeffrey Champlin was a descendent of the French explorer Samuel de Champlain. The only relationship between the two is the similarity in the spellings of their respective surnames. Samuel de Champlain's original surname was Complain - not Champlain."
