Dr John Logan Campbell sailed to what we now call Browns Bay.
Dr Campbell thought there would be coal around Browns Bay and built a shaft to explore but the coal was not mined.
Peter Brown, after whom Browns Bay is named, bought the 136 acres of land, containing the major portion of the beach and flat land.
He built his house on what is now the corner of Clyde Road and Anzac Road. This house was destroyed by fire in 1930. He also built a manager's residence in 1886
With no school in Browns Bay, a part time one was started in a small building on Hyde Road. There had to be at least 10 children attending the school to keep it open.
In the late 1950’s with the completion of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. Browns Bay was connected with the city of Auckland.
(Yup, My drawing of the harbour bridge.)
