Where did Francis Browne (about 1550) father of John Browne, Justice of the Peace in Wellingborough come from? His grandson was Rev. Richard Browne (Quaker)who resided in Podington, Bedfordshire. His sons James and William came to America in 1681 and 1682 and worked with William Penn. I am coming to England May 15, 2003 and want to see where they were from. Is this Francis Browne possible descended from Sir Anthony Browne?
