  Charles Brockden Brown
Charles Brockden Brown (January 17, 1771 - February 22, 1810), American novelist, historian, and magazine editor of the Early National period, is often regarded by scholars as the most ambitious and accomplished US novelist before Cooper.
Although Brown was by no means the first American novelist, as some early criticism claimed, the breadth and complexity of his achievement in multiple genres (the novel, short story, essays, historiography, reviews) make him a touchstone for the understanding of the Early Republic.

  Puke Ariki - Taranaki Stories - Charles Brown goes down in history
Charles Brown came to the infant settlement of New Plymouth in 1841 to set up business with his father, Charles Armitage Brown, a friend of the poet Keats.
Charles Brown senior died soon after, but his 21-year-old son remained and became a well-liked and respected member of the community.
Brown's death, seen by many on the busy main street deeply shocked the community and was a catalyst to eventually removing the railway line from the middle of the town.

Charles Brown was born in 1786, and was in early life a Russia merchant, but failing in business through the substitution of fringe whalebone for bristles, and the anticipation by Britain of a war with Russia, he devoted the remainder of his days to literature and art, and to the society of literary men.
Brown was of Scotch extraction, the family tradition being that his father left Long Island with a Bible as his sole property, and proceeded to London, where, by wisdom, prudence, and industry he attained affluence and a good position in society.
Brown was 23 years of age, he composed a Comic Opera, which was performed at Drury Lane Theatre, and for which he received a silver ticket, admitting him for life to the theatre.
