This account has been adapted from "Browns of Kyeburn Peninsula" by Wally Brown - to whom many thanks
At this time Cecil formed a partnership with his brother Bill on Bill's newly ballotted land at Mt Pisa Station. Then in 1934 he married Jean Swann, and they built a new home at Cromwell, not far from the 4B Ranch, as it was known. Jean's parents, Jack and Fanny Swann had an orchard in the Lowburn Valley where Jean, one of ten children, worked from the time she left school to her marriage. They had two children
About 1960, Cecil's health began to deteriorate and he sold out to his nephew, Vincent, and three years later Jean died. During the next couple of years Cecil went on two world tours, visiting old haunts in the battlefields of France and in London. On the second tour he met and married Sheila Stevenson frm Gore, and they lived in her house at Frankton for the rest of his life until he died in 1968.
