  • Notes 
    • BROWN, THOMAS PICTON SIMON was listed in the Canada Gazette of November 21, 1846 as having received his licence to practice. He was in Stoney Creek at that time, and on January 8, 1852, the Hamilton Gazette reported his marriage to Henrietta, daughter of Thomas Waddle, Esq., of Barton Hall.

      The Berlin Chronicle of March 16, 1858 noting that he had resumed the practice of his Profession in Berlin, presented his card.

      DOCTOR BROWN PHYSICIAN, SURGEON & ACCOUCHEUR RESIDENCE, corner of Weber and Younge streets, nearly opposite the R. Catholic Church Berlin, C. W.

      Tenders his professional services to the inhabitants of Berlin and vicinity.

      On account of being known only in a different capacity, during a residence of eighteen months in this place begs to state that for the previous 10 years he was solely occupied in the general practice of his profession.

      It is not recorded in what capacity he was known previously, although on July 4, 1856 Dr. Bowlby presented to the Town Council a petition from Dr. Brown and others, praying that the sidewalk on Weber Street be laid on the north side of the street. He must have been concerned with matters other than sidewalks.

      Less than a year later his obituary appeared in the Berlin Telegraph of February 11, 1859, saying that "by his amiable disposition and sterling integrity, (he) gained the esteem of all who knew him, . . . "

      On October 12, 1860 it was reported that his widow, now her name spelled Waddell had died of consumption in Hamilton.
