  • Notes 
    • Laird of Mainside and House Byers, Roxburg, Scotland. He was educated at the University of Edinburgh.
      At age 19, he served as a surgeon on a royal ship that came to the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. In May, 1708, while he was on shore in Maryland, a severe storm forced the ship out to sea without him. He was left in there with nothing but the clothes he wore. He stayed, practiced medicine.
      Gustavus took Frances home to Scotland to live, as he had much property there, but Frances persuaded him to go back to Maryland. They lived at "Rich Hill," near Port Tobacco in Charles County. Dr. Brown became prominent in local affairs. In 1723, he was appointed as one of the seven trustees to fill vacancies for school teachers. In 1728, he was appointed as a commissioner to regulate the parishes of St. Mary's and Charles Counties. He was Assistant Judge of Charles County Court in 1755. He was also a vestryman in the Port Tobacco Parish.
