James John Macinnes BROWN1

(1900 - 1976)
Father*William BROWN1 b. c 1877, d. 1931
Mother*Christina Nowell (Tina) McINNES1 b. 1875, d. 1952
James John Macinnes BROWN was born on 22 September 1900 at 135 Campsie St in Glasgow, Lanarkshire.1

He sailed on the Ranchi from Penang, Malaya to Plymouth, arriving on the 14 July 1939 - he gave his occupation as 'engineer', and was returning to live at 8 Loanhead Ave, Renfrew. It seems likely he had been commissioning a tin dredge in Malaya prior to his return.2

He married Margaret McLaren McGREGOR at North Church in Renfrew, Renfrewshire, on 15 September 1939. He described himself as an engineer fitter and she was a telephonist.3

A James John Innes Brown (born 1901, Mining dredge-master, ID 607) is listed in the Changi Museum civilian internees database, which implies he returned to Malaya before war broke out - possibly involved with the delivery of a new dredge - and was imprisoned by the Japanese.4

James died in 1976 in Greenock, Renfrewshire.5
