On the marriage record for Sarsfield and Emily, his father is named as Clinton, a captain in 25th Regt. of Foot. Emily's grandfather, James Flint was a Lt. Col in the same regiment but he died in 1786. Interesting coincidence? One of Emily's sisters (Jane) married Nicholas Skottowe 2 years after Emily's marriage. So Captain Nicholas John Clinton Brown was probably named for Grandfather Clinton and perhaps the Nicholas came from his uncle. I have found several instances where a child was named for an in-law. At one point in searching for descendants of Emily's parents, I found a death of "Sarsfield Rosborough Brown", age 21 in 1880. I took a chance and ordered the certificate but it contained no family info. He was a Fourth mate, death registered in Greenwich, Kent, signed by the Surgeon at the seamans' hospital, cause of death "phthisis pulmonaris exhaustion". So, where does he fit in ???? Now you have more info that you wanted.
