Hello all! Looking for any relatives, info or geneology on my great great grandfather/grandmothers family from Faial ( do not know what village.) His anglicized name was Joseph Lewis Brown until there was a mixup with surnames on the census and it was changed to Joseph Brown Lewis. Born jan 1827 most likely Jose Luiz Brum. His father was a farmer. I believe He arrived in the states in 1856 and entered the military in 1865 but I'm a bit confused with arrival dates. Per my family, he met his wife, Jane L., 20 years his younger on a boat to the states but I am unsure whether he was in the military at that time or if he didn't migrate until 1865 like his wife. I've searched many a ship passenger lists to find thentwomof them on the same boat, but I can't even find one of them so....I'm stuck! The two of them married in 1866 and had two children according to the census, Joseph L. Brown and Willie L. Brown. Joseph was my paternal great grandfather but Willie (although my dad has his
name as Peter so....) died at sea somewhere between the 1880 and 1900 census as well as the name change. They resided in Penobscot, Hampden Highlands, Maine and his death record states: Captain Joseph Lewis Brown. Both Jose and Jane were born in Fayal as well as both of their parents. Any connections or info out there? (17 Jun 2013)

John Norton. Born August 4, 1823 in Flores, Azores Islands, Portugal. Stories say that he and a brother named Manual were teenages when they swam out to a ship (my guess is a whaling ship) and joined the crew. Also, the stories go on to say that their last name was changed to NORTON because the ship captain "adopted" them and it was his last name.
JOHN NORTON eventually landed in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia on the Island of Salt Spring Island around 1859. He lived there the rest of his life. He married twice. His first wife was named Louisa. No other information is known about her, but one record hints that she may have been a native local Indian woman. It was common for newly arriving immigrants to marry the local Native Women. Together they had 3 children: Emmanuel Norton (1866-1909), Elizabeth Norton (1868-1900) and John Joseph Norton (1871-1942). ELIZABETH WAS MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER. She died in 1900. Some records from Salt Spring Island say John's last name may have been Delarvo or something similar.

John's first wife, Louisa died in January of 1873 and he then married Annie Robinson in December of 1873. and together they had 11 children.

I have a webpage full of info about John Norton and his family. Contact me if you think you have a match to the same man.

John Norton died October 1, 1911 on Salt Spring Island. (12 Apr 2013)
