Brown, Eleanor (b1814)


Dorothy Graham records that “Eleanor was pledged by the Sheerness Circuit in 1839. She possibly worked in London, while stationed in the Hull circuit, as the PM Minutes, (1834) record her removal expenses from London to Swinefleet. Local circuit records and the PM Minutes provide evidence of her ill-health while in the north of England and consequent removal south to Newbury, Berkshire (1847).” It is not clear whether she went to Australia because she had become a supernumerary or was going as a missionary. There is no record of her on the Australia stations.
