The above were all living Aug 1625 when Daniel made his will, naming the above, also a nephew William son of Michael, and a cousin Edmund Franke.
Malachia Browning was one of he first proprietors of Watertown, MA and removed to Martha's Vineyard. He died in Mr Robert Scott's house in Boston, MA Nov 27, 1653.His will on file in the Archives, State House, Boston, MA, lives his estate to the 4 daughters of his nephew Thomas Browning of Essex Co., MA.Thomas is presumably a son of Michael.

The will of Nathaniel Browning, dtd 4 Apr 1673, found in the loose papers of the Portsmouth Court House, mentions the above children, all under age.(Above birth years are approximate)
Jan 2, 1677/8, the estate of Sarah Browning, single woman, late of Portsmouth was divided among her brother and sisters by the Portsmouth Town Council as follows:To mary, wife of Thomas manchester, Jr 1/4; to William Browning 1/4 at age of 21; to Jane and Rebecca Browning at age of 16 or when married, 1/4 each.Gideon Freeborn, uncle of the deceased to act as administrator.
By wills recorded under Daniel Browning's record, it is known that Nathaniel Browning, Daniel's posthumous son, was brought up by John Palmer until his 8th yr, when he went to the home of the Farringtons of Coleman St., London.When he came to Rhode Island is not exactly known.Possibly he came originally with his uncle Malachi Browning and was at Watertown and Martha's Vineyard.The earliest known mention of him seems to be rhe record in which he bought 2 lots of 8 acres each and a dwelling house of John Roome at Warwick, RI in 1645.This may indicate he was married prior to his marriage to Sarah Freeborne."
