David Brown

Biography of David Brown

Colonel David Brown of Somerset County in the Province of Maryland bequeathed £100 sterling to the University In his will, written in 1697. The bequest was made "as a memoriall and support of any of my relations to be educated [at the University]". Brown's origins are obscure but the author of Deeds Instituting Bursaries, Scholarships and other Foundations... (Glasgow, 1850) speculates that he may have been the same David Browne who had matriculated at the University in 1640.
