I can find no such marriage in Scotland or England 1800-1825.
Yeah not much to go on and I don't even know if he was in Scotland or England in 1851 but he married in 1852 in Cornwall.
Starting with this marriage in Queensland:
1884/C0948 WATSON William Pilkington - Brown Caroline Maria
I'm trying to find where William and Caroline were born, etc..
I suspect there is a clergyman involved and also of course, Ireland. :2fun:

William Maxwell BROWN c. 1832 Liverpool, Lancs.
I believe William was later an actor/ stage manager in Surrey. Not sure where he would be in 1851. He possibly left England in 1851 after the census.
I'd like a look up for William in 1851 please.
