This might be duplicate info for you but I figured it was worth a try. From the 1790 Cumberland Co., Maine census' in the town of Harpswell which is down the road from Brunswick, was a Thomas Ross with 1-0-1 which might mean he was just married and not had any children yet.
Since he had the same name as one of your Ross' I figured this might be a connection for you. Many of the folks in Harpswell were Fisherman and seamen of some sort so if they moved to any Islands Down East this might be some of them.
Also in the 1790 Brunswick Census was Joseph Ross with 1-1-1 and William Ross with 1-3-4 or 6 couldn't clearly read that last number, and Eliphalet Ross with 2-2-3.

In the 1800 Brunswick Census there was William Ross with 1-1-1-0-1 males and 1-1-0-1-0- females

Samuel Ross with 0-0-0-1-0- males and 3-0-0-1-0 females

Joseph Ross with 0-1-0-1-0 males and 0-0-0-1-0 females
James Ross with 1-0-0-1-0 males and 1-1-0-0-1-0 females
another James Ross with 1-0-0-1-1 males and 1-1-0-1-0 females
and a Barton Ross with 2-2-0-0-1 males and 1-2-0-0-2 females.

By 1810 there was James Ross, Joseph Ross, Salley Ross, Samuel Ross and William Ross all in the Brunswick, Cumberland Co., Maine census.
I hope some of this is helpful to you. Since they didn't list the names of folks in the census' until 1850, its pretty hard to tell whose the parent and what the children's and wives names were. Perhaps by now someone has already helped you with what you were looking for.
Good Luck.
