Tomb of John Brown at the Western Cemetery

Tomb of John Brown at the Western Cemetery

During that same year, title to the Buena Vista once again becomes clear when the Honourable Sir Joseph Brown Kt. (1840-1919), originally from Bermuda (no relation to John Brown) and member of the House of Assembly, Executive Council and Honourary Legislative Assembly of the Bahama Islands, sold the house to Harold James Petrie from Hamilton, Ontario for £1,500.

Brown served in Government for 34 years and in 1914 was knighted for his public service. A local periodical wrote “Sir Joseph Brown retires from political office after an unusually long service which began in 1882, when he entered the House of Assembly as one of the representatives of the District of Andros at a General Election.” He died one year after his retirement and is interred within sight of the Buena Vista at the Western Cemetery.
