Son of James Brown of Marcus Hook, PA and Burlington, NJ.
aged about 80 years at time of passing.
The area in which he lived his life, changed boundaries in his life time, I have attached a map for reference.

Thank you to Claudia Davenport-Sullivan (47345651) for sharing the following:
West Nottingham was established about 1710, held at the houses of the members initially, with a preparative meeting being set up about 1730. The land on which the meetinghouse sits was donated by James King and William Harris. The current meeting house was built in 1811 and became known as “Little” Brick”. The Nottingham meetings were both originally under Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, but were joined to Nottingham Quarter when the Cecil county meetings were transferred to Baltimore Yearly Meeting in 1819.

After the settlement of the Mason-Dixon Line/boundary, only 1,300 acres of the original Nottingham Lots remained in Chester County and the other 16,700 acres became part of Cecil County, Maryland. East and West Nottingham remained in Chester County, PA, however East Nottingham / Brick Meeting House (1st built from logs in 1709 and of brick in 1724 on Nottingham Lot #30) was just 4 miles south of the boundary, and fell under Cecil County, Maryland.
