of Pardon and Ann (Bailey) Brownell,
was born January 28, 1821, and married
Oliver Clarke Brownell, of Little Comp-
ton (see Brownell VII, above).

(The Bailey Line).

(I) William Bailey, the progenitor of
the Baileys of Rhode Island, an English-
man probably, became an inhabitant of
Newport soon after the settlement of the
town. The partial destruction of the
records during the War of the Revolution
leaves but meager gleanings concerning
the lives of the early settlers of Newport.
It is a matter of record, however, that
William Bailey was at Newport as early
as June 14, 1655, when he bought prop-
erty there ; and one year later he is styled
in the records as William Bailey, Sr. Fam-
ily tradition has it that he was a resident
of London, England, and a weaver of silk
ribbons by occupation. Mr. Bailey died
some time before 1676. He married Grace
Parsons, of Portsmouth, Rhode Island,
daughter of Hugh and Elizabeth Parsons.
After the death of her husband she mar-
ried (second) Thomas Lawton. Chil-
