Captain Hathaway Brown's background and information

Brown Family Coat of Arms

Hathaway Brown is the bastard son of Alexander Dixon, grandson of Humphrey Dixon. Humphrey and his son Alexander served as Knights of the Order of St. John.

The Order arose around the work of an Amalfitan hospital located at the Muristan site in Jerusalem, founded around 1023 to provide care for poor, sick or injured pilgrims to the Holy Land. After the Western Christian conquest of Jerusalem in 1099 during the First Crusade, the organization became a religious and military order under its own charter, and was charged with the care and defense of the Holy Land. Following the conquest of the Holy Land by Islamic forces, the Order operated from Rhodes, over which it was sovereign and later from Malta.

With the Reformation and Counter-reformation and the lack of stability from the Roman Catholic Church, the knights changed attitudes. The Knights, a Roman Catholic military order, pursued the re-admittance of England as one of its member states — the Order there had been suppressed, along with monasteries, under King Henry VIII — upon the succession of the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I aptly demonstrates the new religious tolerance within the Order. The perceived moral decline that the Knights underwent over the course of this period is best highlighted by the decision of many Knights to serve in foreign navies and become "the mercenary sea-dogs of the 14th to 17th centuries", with the French Navy proving the most popular destination.

Humphrey Dixon established himself as a brilliant captain and leader of men. He server the order well and was held in high esteem in England. Nor was he forgotten by his contemporizes.

Alexander Dixon also severed the Order, but wasn’t held in high standard as his father. Alexander was considered ruthless, brutal and cold hearted. While an able seaman and outstanding swordsman, Alexander farmed his services out to the highest bidder. He took a mistress in Malta, whose name is lost to history. She died giving birth to a son, Hathaway. Alexander was later hanged as a pirate of the Barbary Coast.

Alexander had would have nothing to do with the child. However, Humphrey adored his grandson and took the child to raise as his own. On his deathbed, Humphrey bequeathed Hathaway to return to England to study under an English Captain.

Landing in Plymouth, Hathaway changed his surname to Brown, because of his dark completion. He enrolled in the English Navy under the watchful eyes of Humphrey’s comrades. He quickly proved that his grandfather’s blood ran through him, as he served well and proved himself worthy of a rise in the ranks.

Currently Hathaway is commissioned as Captain and stationed to serve in the seas of the Caribbean.
