On the 1st of November 1763, Joseph married Mary Bendle* in Berkeley.
Through the maternal side of this family i.e. the Bendle’s and then previously the Prewett’s this families roots have been traced back thus far to a Richard Prewett and his wife Margaret Michell, Richard was born in 1630 in Gloucester. Their tree is not contained on these pages.

There may have been other children. For example, there is a record of a death at Stone of a “John Brown, son of Joseph and Mary”. The burial, at Stone Church, was held on February the 25th 1772. This could well have been a child from early in the marriage. No record of a likely baptism can be found for this child.
