The first page - has a note - that Dr. Brown was a member of the queens court. Viewing the bible - it looks like that was written in by someone else - at another (later) time - that the rest of the writing in the bible. Since no one I know who has been researching this bible has ever found any proof of this statement - I have left it out of my transcription. Mark Brown
