Thanks Radcliff

Like I said I'm new to this, apologies for the heavy post. Thought it was best to show the line I am tracing as the Brown family tree is HUGE with many branches and they all seem to have the same first name (William son of William who had William), so at times can be quite confusing.

Re: familysearch.org, have been using the site but without specific data it's like searching for a proverbial needle in a hay stack and quite often results can be incorrect guess work.

Thanks for taking the time and the pieces to our jigsaw. Dare I say keep them coming.:D

Can you confirm the year Anthony son of William Browne Jnr was baptised. I have 1692?
