The only problem with that data on the Browne's is that is is completely wrong.
The authors jumped to a comclusion, that Abraham Browne did not know where he was born. Since he is on record, in a sworn statement as saying he came from Hawkedon, I would tend to think that would settle it.
I just love these authors and "researchers" who try to debunk earlier genealogists. When they do not approach the subject with a built in Bias, Dean Smith had a very strong bias, and he shaped his research to fit that mold. He built on a similarity in name, and went from there.
This was on the Internet as early as 1991. It was false then, and it still is.
Trace back the Browne's as presented in Bond's "History of Watertown". They all check out, each and every one of them. The records exist. In fact, Abraham was awarded an inheritance, which describes him as "living in New Englande".
By the way, the town of Stamford has one privilidge for descendants of the Browne's. You may have your ashes scattered in the Churchyard of All Saints Church (which the Browne's rebuilt several times).
