Thanks very much for the interesting letter! In fact, the connection
between Robert Browne & Lord Burghley is the focus of the chart in
_Pedigree and Progress_ I referred to in my earlier post. In summary
form their connection appears to be this:
Na. Bedingfield = Christopher Browne = Grace, dau. of
of Norfolk | of Stamford & | John Pinchbeck
| Tolethorpe, Rutland|
David Cecil | Francis Browne of
| | Tolethorpe
___________________ | |
| | | Anthony Browne (d.
Richard (d. 1553) Joan = Edmund Browne, |
| of Stamford |
William Cecil, Robert Browne
Baron Burghley (c1550-1633)
It would seem then that Cecil's uncle was also the uncle of Anthony
Browne of Tolthorpe & great-uncle of Robert Browne.
