BiographyEdit

Brown had served in the Royal Navy since he was only eleven years old. In 1810, when Brown was twenty-eight, the HMS Sutherland was captured by the French. Hornblower and Bush were to be taken to Paris for a mock trial and execution. Hornblower, allowed to take one person with him, asked for Brown to accompany them. Brown escaped with Hornblower and Bush, and wintered at the Chateaux de Graçay. He escaped France alongside his Captain and First Lieutenant. He went on to serve Hornblower in later years as his butler in Smallbridge.

Brown was portrayed by Nigel Green in the 1963 Alcoa Premiere Television Series, episode 'Hornblower'.
