Condolences to the family of my first cousin twice removed Guy Alexander Brown, who I didn't know existed until second cousin once removed Ian Macfarlane, mentioned to me as living in Wellington and was part of 'his family story' of us both being descended from Alexander Francis Garden Brown. My 2nd great grandfather Francis Garden Brown was the eldest of Ally or AFGB and Charlotte (or CMB) Brown's children. Ian Macfarlane is descended from the second of their children , George William Alston Brown.*
No doubt some great memories were shared of Guy Brown's life at his service - and I'm hoping the family is willing to share some of them to the wider Brown family line in New Zealand and overseas.
Yours sincerely, Ray Mankelow[email protected]
