During his stay in Wolverton he made friends with Edward Hayes, who founded the famous engineering works at Stony Stratford and William Harvey, a more modest man, but one who stayed in Wolverton to become a pillar of the community. His name is on one of the foundation stones of the Wesleyan Church and his gravestone is immediately outside the west door of St George’s Church.
Wayne Clarke, himself a baptist minister who served at Hugh Stowell Brown’s former church, has spent a number of years researching and writing the life of Hugh Stowell Brown. His book will be published on September 19 and advance orders can be placed on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ready-Man-Stowell-Brown-Preacher-Activist/dp/1912726084/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1568030494&sr=8-3
I recommend it on its own merit as a life of a fascinating Victorian, but also to those who wish to deepen their knowledge of the history of Wolverton.
