JohnBrowne was, according to family tradition, a son of Robert and Sarah(Thurtell) Browne of Hopton Suffolk, and descended from another RobertBrowne founder of the Lowestoft China Works. The family was connected inseveral ways with our family of Thurtell of Flixton and Hopton inSuffolk. The account below is based first on the 'Thurtell Pedigree' byHerbert and Ada Murray ca.1932, with additions from a pedigree chart sentby John and Chebs Browne. John Browne married his 'first cousin' (so says the Thurtell Pedigree)Maria Thurtell in 1814. The marriage is recorded at Witton near Blofield(another record says Witton near North Walsham), Norfolk, on October 8,1814. According to the Browne family tradition, in 1815 he is said tohave been presented with the Sword of Honour on the battlefield ofWaterloo (June 18, 1815). John and Maria Browne lived at Norton Hall,which in a letter of a relative is described as having a lovely avenue ofone hundred lime trees leading up to it. It was evidently in Norfolkwithin easy reach from Norwich, since it was visited from Norwich in anafternoon's excursion in 1898 by two of John and Maria's grandchildren.Norton Hall has now been identified (letter John Howell, October 1995) asbeing at Pudding Norton Hall, Norfolk, about one mile south of Fakenham.It was described by a visitor in 1898 as 'a very roomy old place.' Itwas formerly a manor house of some architectural significance (seeBurke's Country Houses). Mrs. Maria Browne was living there in 1845,her husband John having presumably died, since she was listed in White'sNorfolk Directory under 'farmers.' The 1841 census has not beenchecked. When the hall was visited in 1898 a Mrs. Dixon was there. MariaBrowne was apparently still living in 1866 when her sister Anne Everitt'sdiary was sent to relatives in America after the latter's death. Johnand Maria Browne are stated to have had 24 children, several of whom weretwins. In a letter dated April 15, 1837 (Frances Baas to Mary ThurtellMurray, quoted by Marge Shearing): '...dear Sophia says Mrs. Browneexpects every day confinement of her 22nd child. Oh! how enviable is mystate of blessed singleness.' There is a possibility that John Browne of Norton Hall could be the onewho held a civic position in Norwich: John Browne, treasurer of thetonnage revenues is named on the brass tablet placed by mayor ThomasThurtell (uncle of our John Browne) when the new Fye bridge was opened in1823. Of the numerous children of of John and Maria (Thurtell) Browne,ten are appear in family records.(.

An old letter dated August 5, 1864, states:'Edward Browne, I expect, has joined by this time his brother in Africa.He first went to Canada. There he was very unfortunate and I believe wasassisted out to Africa where I hope he will be more successful. His wifehas a little property of her own upon which I expect they are subsisting'(letter Sarah Murray in England to Alexander & Andrea Murray inCalifornia - Sarah was Edward Browne's aunt, and Alexander was hiscousin). In 1853 Edward Browne and his family were visited in Guelph Township,Canada, by his aunt Anne Everitt as descrived in her diary: '...drove meto my nephew Edward Browne's, where I was introduced to my new niece andher sweet pretty lively son: EB was not at home. Mrs B and her sonreturned with us to tea.' She mentions more visits to the Brownes whileshe was there, but unfortunately no description of Edward Browne.
