[521] Chancery Court (Chancery Papers) 1817/11/10 754:
Gustavus Brown, Gustavus R. Brown, Elizabeth Brown, Thomas H. Blunt, and Margaret Blunt vs. Clement Dorsey. CH. Estate of Gustavus Brown - Rose Hill Estate, Montrose.7,898-754-1/7. MSA S512-775 1/35/5/
-----------------------------

About 1714, Dr. Brown purchased from Philemon Hemsley 300 acres south east of Port Tobacco called "Rich Hill." He is believed to be buried at Rich Hill which was sold from the family in 1806. It later became famous as the place where John Wilkes Booth hid after assassinating Pres. Lincoln. An 18th century house exists and the current residents look for buried treasure under an old tombstone marked with an X. His second wife was Margaret Boyd Black who was the mother of his son Dr. Gustavus Richard Brown.

He resided at and possibly patented Rose Hill. In his will, he described himself as "a Practitioner of medicine and Laird of Mainside and the House of Byers, Roxbury Scotland." His Scottish lordship, Edinburgh education, and property holdings in Scotland and Maryland placed Dr. Brown in a social position unparalleled in the colony. He was also thought to be the richest man in Charles County.

-----------------------------

His will was dated 9 Dec. 1755 and was probated 12 May 1762 in Charles Co., MD.:

Right here to ELLERSLIE (R), 0.7 m. a two-and-a-half story, square brick house built in 1748 by Dr.Michael Wallace who, at 15, had been indentured to Dr.Gustavus Brown, of Charles City County, Md., to learn 'physical surgery and pharmacy.' Towards the end of his six years' apprenticeship, in 1747, he eloped with 'one of the nine Miss Browns who had twenty-seven husbands between them.' Settling in Falmouth the following year, he acquired land and built this stately house. Dr. Wallace's practice soon extended into Culpeper, Fauquier, and Loudoun Counties.

In December 1799, former President Washington developed a severe cold and sore throat. As Washington's condition declined, Dr. Craik called upon fellow physicians Elisha Dick and Gustavus Brown for help. Washington's doctors bled, blistered, and purged him. He did not respond to treatment and died on 14 December. Although the treatment of Washington was later condemned as hastening his death, it was in keeping with accepted medical practices of the time.
