John Browne

Another interesting ancestor was John Browne. I am related to him through my great-great-great grandmother, Julia Brown who was born in New York in 1817.  John Browne came from a prominent British family and settled in Massachusetts in the early 1600s. “Gentleman” Browne became the Commissioner of the United Colonies. He married Dorothy Beauchamp who was born in Rehoboth, MA in approximately 1593.
