Sarah Brown was from Maryport, Cumberland. She was baptised on the same day as her brother Henry (twins?). The record appears on the same page of the baptismal register as the one for her future husband, Thomas English.
Sarah’s parents were John Brown and Margaret Sewell. In the 1841 census, Margaret is listed as a confectioner.
Sarah, husband Thomas, and brother Henry Brown emigrated to South Australia in 1850.
