Nathaniel BROWN d.1701?

Biographical Note

Barrister ("counsellor at law"), of Worcester, apparently the son of Arthur Brown, also a Worcester lawyer, and presumably the man of this name who matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford 1650 (but appears not to have graduated), and is recorded as a barrister at the Middle Temple in 1672.


Brown's library was auctioned in London, beginning 18.2.1702. No catalogues survive, but the sale was advertised in the English Post as "consisting of the most valuable and scarce books in the common and statute law".
