The Brown Memorial is an old monument erected at Padang Brown to commemorate David Brown, a Scotsman who came from Longformacus, a small village in Berwickshire, Scotland. David Brown, who was born in 1778 and later passed away on a ship while en route to Malacca, was once the largest land owner in Penang during his time. He took over the estate of his business partner, James Scott (who took over Francis Light’s estate), following the death of Scott in 1808. A known philanthropist who helped developed Penang, David Brown also married a local wife named Nonia Ennui.
