In Reply to: BROWNE, 1600s, 1700s. by James Brown of 895

Dear Sir: I hope this email finds you well. I am interested in Browne genealogy as my mother was a Bermuda Browne. Due to your fine family history I believe my mother traces back to the Adam Browne who was born in Maryland ca. 1664 to one Abell Browne and his 2nd wife.

This particular Browne line is no more in Bermuda. Their property off Radnor Road in Hamilton Parish is still shown as Browne Estates but it is carved up now into multiple lots.

I was wondering if you have been able to find out more about the Browne origins in England and anything more about said Adam. Adam shows up in Bermuda ca. 1795 I believe.

The will or Robert Browne in Maryland shows that Robert owned property in Bush River, Maryland which is quite amazing. I am a Galyon and my American forebear was one Joseph Gallion who emigrated from London to Bush River, Md. ca. 1664 to become a tobacco planter (albeit not too successful). So my mother and father (both dec'd now) had forebears living in the same American county ca. 1700. My father's forebears migrated westward while my mother's apparently returned to Bermuda.
