It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Brown 2: Broun of Bassendean, Broun of Colstoun, Broun in Hume Castle, Broun of Thornydykes
BP1934 reports that this family was "in possession of the lands of Colstoun, co. Haddington, as far back as the 14th century" but does not mention anyone before George Broun who died in 1603.This indicates some loss of faith in the earlier report given in BP1870 which starts with Walter Le Brun as shown in the following pedigree. As there is a difference between the immediate ancestry of the early baronets, for interest and information purposes what BP1870 reports is shown on the upper section of this page, however, more research is necessary before any attempt should be made to connect any of it with the information from BP1934 in the lower section.

BP1934 reports as follows on this family. As it disagrees with the above, we presume that further research made the family decide that the above pedigree was not secure.
