Brown, May (1831–1918)

According to her marriage certificate, May Walker married Archibald Brown at Brunswick, Melbourne, on 30 October 1855.  She was born in Scotland and was aged 20 on her wedding day (it would seem that that is incorrect as there is a church baptism record giving her birth in 1831). Both she and her future husband were living at Brunswick.

Her father was John Walker and her mother was Graham (known as Ann) Walker nee Bathgate.
