George Stayley Brown (b. November 20, 1827, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia - d. September 12, 1915, Boston, Massachusetts). ship owner, historian and politician in Nova Scotia..

“While there seems to be an almost limitless amount of material that could be published in the field of genealogy, there are also many old publications that are not well known, have never been widely distributed, and are in danger of being lost. Such is the case with the work of George S. Brown which appeared in the Nova Scotia newspaper the Yarmouth Herald. Published between 1896 and 1909, Mr. Brown's columns focused almost exclusively on New England families of English descent who migrated to Nova Scotia before, during, or immediately after the American Revolutionary War, many of them descendants of the original Mayflower colonists. They were largely seafaring families who had social contact with port cities throughout the United States and the world, and in his numerous columns in the Yarmouth Herald Mr.Brown traced them from their earliest known origins in the old world down to the end of the. Nineteenth century. In an effort to make these valuable but long-forgotten columns accessible to the public, we have put together as complete a collection of the columns as possible, copied them out verbatim -- completely resetting the type -- and indexed them.” (from the Preface).

"Published between 1896 and 1910, George Brown's columns in the Yarmouth Herald focused almost exclusively on New England families who migrated to Nova Scotia around the time of the Revolutionary War, many of them descended from Mayflower colonists. In article after article Brown traced these families from their earliest known origins in the old world down to the end of the nineteenth century, his combined output amounting to an encyclopedia of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia families. Brown's work has been badly neglected, owing to the scarcity of the Yarmouth Herald. To rectify this situation and place this invaluable body of source materials at the disposal of the researcher, Martha and Bill Reamy put together as complete a collection of columns as possible, reset the type, and indexed the entire collection. The 186 articles name as many as 60,000 individuals. With an Introduction by the noted Nova Scotia authority Col. Leonard H. Smith Jr., and with additional articles containing selected Yarmouth source records, this is clearly the pre-eminent work on Nova Scotia genealogy."
