BROWNLEE in Osgoode Township, Ontario, Canada
West half, Lot 4, Concession 2, Osgoode in 1879
also in North Gower, Goulbourn and Marlborough Townships

June 9, 2003:

The 1879 atlas shows two houses on this property. A "J. Brownlee" is presumably the son
John and his family. Elizabeth, head of the second household, born in 1803 is probably
the widow of "T. Brownlee" who must have died between 1879 and 1881.

The Brownlee farm was bordered by the homestead of Thomas Tierney and the Harney and 
Kilfoyle farms. The Brownlee family was Presbyterian. The only other Presbyterian in
the immediate neighbourhood was my GreatGrandmother, Ann ROBB.

October 19, 2004: Hi Al: I have a whole bunch of Brownlee names and I have done considerable work on them but I would like to get it straightened out. I have a couple of people from the North Gower, Goulbourn and Marlborough area helping me and I would love to get this family or group of families straightened out. I would be willing to share anything I have with anyone to get started on this adventure. I would suspect that I have in the neighborhood of 3,500 names connected to the Brownlee families. Unfortunately my Brownlee file is in horrible shape but the names are there and that is a good start. Just a matter of fitting them into the puzzle. ... Robert Sample
August 15, 2007: Hi Al: I am sending you two sets of info on the Brownlee families from my file. What I have done, is gone through my file and put all of the people who I do not know who their father was under Unconnected Brownlee. My program only allows a father to have 99 children and because I have about 130 Brownlees who I do not know who their father was, I had to make two groups, on Unconnected b. 1710 and the other 1730. Here they are. Do with as you wish. I have removed the living. If anyone can help me connecting these people up to families it would be greatly appreciated. If anyone wishes additional information, ask and you shall receive. ...

October 24, 2009: Dear Robert Sample and Al Lewis, I happened onto a site today (bytown.net) which had lots of Brownlees on it. I am a descendant of the Brownlees who lived on St. Joseph Island, Algoma, Ontario, Canada. And my Caufield relatives lived on the Island, as well as in North Gower, Carleton, Ontario, Canada. I was actually searching for Caufield information when I came upon the site. I have been trying for years to trace back to where, in Ireland, my Caufield and Brownlee ancestors came from. My paternal great grandparents were William James Allan Caufield ( born 5 Feb 1873 - North Gower) and Etheline Brownlee (born 12 July 1878 - North Gower), who immigrated from St. Joseph's Island to Michigan, USA, in the early 1900's. W. J. Allan Caufield's parents were William Allen Caufield (born 1838 - born of Irish parents in Manchester, England) and Francis (Fanny) Elizabeth Good (born 14 Feb 1848 - North Gower, Carleton, Ontario). William Allen Caufield's parents were James Caufield (Born abt 1804/1812 - Ireland) and Elizabeth Duncan (born abt 1810 - Ireland) - both were buried in the Elmview Cemetery, Village of Kars, Ottawa, Ontario. As far as I have been able to find out, Etheline Brownlee's parents were David Brownlee (born 2 Aug 1850 - North Gower) and Isabella Moorhead (born 18 June 1860 - Huntley, Carleton, Ontario). David's parents were William Henry Brownlee (born 20 June 1825 - Goulbourn, Carleton, Ontario) and Ann Harrison (born abt 1831 - Ontario). William Henry's parents were Alexander Brownlee (born abt 1797 - Ireland - possibly County Cavan) and Catherine Ross (born abt 1800 - Canada). If this email should reach you, and if you are interested in corresponding, I can send more information on my Brownlee family groups. I would very much enjoy hearing from you! Sincerely, Geri Caufield Palmer
New June 23, 2010: Hello, My name is Dennis Brownley, I read with interest some of your material on the Brownlee Line. I guess you could say we are from the same branch of the tree. My grandfather was James Brownley, who's father was Alexander Ross Brownley, born in 1869 in Grey County, who's father was Alexander Brownlee who left district Parry Sound to go to St. Joseph Island where he was a light-house keeper until disappearing in mid 1880's. He in return was the son of Alexander and Catherine Ross Brownlee. In the early 1900's the census people of McKellar Township who were primarily illiterate at the time changed the spelling of our name to what it is today. My great aunt Barbera and great aunt Susan both have the spelling "Brownlee" on their gravestones. Would love to hear from you if you have more info on the family. Sincerely, ... Dennis Brownley
