I would assume that "your" Cluverius/Cluverious Coleman is the same man that I mentioned in my post. Per a lot of information, it seems certain that he was part of the same overall Coleman family that "traces back" to the Robert Coleman who married Elizabeth Grizzell in the 1600s and their son Robert Coleman "II" who married Ann Spilsby. A daughter of Robert Coleman and Ann Spilsby named Elizabeth Coleman married a man that we call Daniel Brown "II" in Essex Co., VA. Daniel and Elizabeth moved the part of Orange Co., VA that eventually became Culpeper Co., VA, and Daniel Brown "II" died there about 1747.

The above Daniel Brown "II" was the son of Francis Brown "II" (died 1708/1709 in Essex Co., VA) and the grandson of Francis Brown "I" (died 1691/1692 in Essex Co., VA). I can't help but wonder if the Thomas Brown in Lunenburg/Mecklenburg was also a part of this overall Brown family...especially since the above-mentioned Francis Brown "II" had an unknown earlier/older Thomas Brown as the witness on his Essex County will. I would not be surprised if this "mystery" Thomas Brown was an ancestor of the Thomas Brown who was in Lunenburg/Mecklenburg and who was closely assoicated with Cluverious Coleman...but that is just an "educated guess" at this point. I wish a living male Brown out of the Thomas Brown family in Mecklenburg would join the Brown Society DNA test.
