Some Old Places , Saint Ann

Aboukir is as old as 1801. It recalls the battle of Aboukir and the great sea fight of 1798 at Aboukir Bay.The land battle was in 1801 near the village when Sir Ralph Abercombi an English General who distinguished himself in many battles landed there and defeated the french at Alexandria but died of wounds.

Brown's Town was first known as Hamilton Town after the first name of its founder 1775-1843,who was an Irishman, Hamilton Brown but afterwards it was decided that it should be only his surname.  A tablet to his memory reads as follows: " Hamilton Brown of Antrim, Ireland died September 18, 1843. He was the founder of this town and for 22 years was one of the representatives of the parish in the House of Assembly. His name will long be cherished by the grateful community who for nearly half a century experienced the benefits of his generous mind and heart."
