Ella Jane Brown, born March 23, 1863, at St. Helena, Napa County, California; died January 22, 1901, at San Francisco; married October 17, 1881, at New York City Cameron H. King and was his second wife. She was the daughter of Charles Mar and Frances Sarah (Bridgwood) Brown.

The Brown family, it is said, were originally from New England and descendants of the Puritan Pilgrim Peter Brown, who came to New England in 1620 in the Mayflower, or of his brother John, who came shortly thereafter, but I have not been able as yet to obtain sufficient data or genealogical records showing a connected lineage to that source.

The only authentic records at present in my possession begin with a branch of the family located in Pennsylvania and engaged in farming at Watsontown, Northumberland County.

Public Schools of Oakland, Cal. In 1902 she resigned her position as teacher and removed toPhiladelphia. Subsequently she became a teacher of drawing and art in the schools of Haddonfield, N. J. She is unmarried.


Ella Jane8 Brown, (Charles Mar,2 James1) born in St. Helena, Napa County, California, March 23, 1863; died in San Francisco, Cal., Jany. 22, 1901; buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery, San Francisco; married Oct. 17, 1881, in New York City Cameron Haight King. She was a member of St. John's Episcopal Church, San Francisco. For their issue see King Genealogy— Cameron Haight King—pages 377-380, ante.


Ella Jane (Brown) King, wife of Cameron Haight King, was the grand-daughter of Elizabeth (Baker) Bridgwood, born in England May 24, 1819; died in San Francisco, California. Married in 1837 in England, John Coomer Bridgwood, an officer of the 7th Huzzars in the English army, whose regiment at the time was stationed at Birmingham. She was the daughter of Jeremiah and Mary (Ansley) Baker.

The Baker family is one of high standing in England. Their arms are blazoned as follows: "Arms—Quarterly, First a A fourth gules, a goat passant argent, attired or, for Baker; second, argent, on a fess gules, between two bars wavy sable, three crescents or, for Dod; Third: per fess, sable and gules an eagle displayed or for Edge. Crest: Out of a ducal coronet or, a goat's head argent, attired or. Motto: Ars bona violentia.

The Baker family is mentioned in "Burke's Landed Gentry of England" from which book we have taken the lineage of the Baker family given below.

The arms of the Baker family which we have given above are those which were borne by both the father and grand-father of Elizabeth (Baker) Bridgwood and are also the same as those now borne by William Meath Baker, Esq., B. A., of Hasfield Court, County Gloucester, England.

Sampson1 Baker, one of the early ancestors of the family, was a wealthy merchant of London, England, in the year 1610. He was married and left as his heir his descendant:

William Baker, of Bridgenorth, County Salop, England, who married (for his second wife) in 1736 Jane, daughter and heiress of George Dod, Esq., of High Fields, County Chester, England, descended from a scion of the Dods of Edge. His youngest son was: William Baker, born 1744, died 1785, who succeeded to the County Stafford estates of his father. He married Sarah Baker and left surviving him two sons:

First: William Baker of Fenton House; and second: Jeremiah Baker, who was the father of Elizabeth (Baker) Bridgwood, mother of Frances Sarah (Bridgwood) Brown, who was mother of Ella Jane (Brown) King, wife of Cameron H. King.
