| I have transcribed the Will of Nicholas Browne (-1610x1611) of Little
| Walsingham, summary below. (If any one wants the full text, let me
know):
|
| PRO Web page indexed as: Will of Nicholas Browne, Gentleman of Little
| Walsingham, Norfolk; 22 April 1611; PROB 11/117
|
| Summary
| Nicholas Browne (-Will 8 Oct 1610, pr 22 April 1611); the elder; of
Little
| Walsingham, Norfolk; gent; ancestors buried in Little Walsingham;
|
| Family:
| Wife: Barbara
| Sister: Anne Rainnie
| Kinsman: Robert Heyhowe; Thomas Heyhowe; Elizabeth Wythe
| Sons: William (father of Jane); Nicholas (father of Nicholas and
Joane)
| Mention of Faith and Frances (twins) Browne who seem to be daughters
of
| Nicholas the elder.
|
| Perhaps he is connected with the following:
|
| 1) Armiger Browne of Walsingham - here Armiger seems to be used as a
| christian name - Petition presented June 1624 against libel of John
Fairfox, Browne
| called him "a base knave and the son of a cowkeeper" which petitioner
will
| prove, whereas petitioner claims descent from the [Brownes] builder of
All Hallows
| church and Browne's Hospital, Stamford, Lincs
|
| 2) Philip Browne of Little Walsingham in Will of John Gibson dated 18
March
| 1618
