Excerpt: Chapter One. The BROWN FAMILY ?I'm the Poet of White Horse Vale, sir, With liberal notions under my cap.??Ballad The Browns have become illustrious by the pen of Thackeray and the pencil of Doyle, within the memory of the young gentlemen who are now matriculating at the universities. Notwithstanding the well?merited but late fame which has now fallen upon them, any one at all acquainted with the family must feel that much has yet to be written and said before the British nation will be properly sensible of how much of its greatness it owes to the Browns. For centuries, in their quiet, dogged, homespun way, they have been subduing the earth in most English counties, and leaving their mark in American forests and Australian uplands. Wherever the fleets and armies of England have won renown, there stalwart sons of the Browns have done yeomen?s work. With the yew bow and cloth?yard shaft at Cressy and Agincourt ? with the brown bill and pike under the brave Lord Willoughby ? with culverin and demi?culverin against Spaniards and Dutchmen ? with hand?grenade and sabre, and musket and bayonet, under Rodney and St. Vincent, Wolfe and Moore, Nelson and Wellington, they have carried their lives in their hands.
