Hello - and welcome to the Oxfordshire board!

With such a common surname - and so little information - this is a difficult one. You say that you have the family on the 1851 census - does it give birthplaces for the parents and children?

I had a look at the OFHS's Oxfordshire Marriage Index (1538-1837). There are only two possible marriages - one in 1816 in Woodstock (possibly too early), and this one:

25 JUN 1828 - Thomas BROWN to Mary BARTON at Oxford St. Thomas

(This is the only information given on the index - the actual parish register may have more, eg. witnesses.)

Do either of these locations fit in with what you already know?

Did the couple have any children after the start of civil registration in 1837? Ordering the birth certificate of one of these children would give the mother's maiden name and would help to confirm if either of the above marriages are the right one.

PS The 1851 census entry should give some clues to the parents' respective birthplaces/dates, and you could then check the parish registers.
