Brownings in Sibbertswold/Shepherdswell Area
« on: Thursday 02 November 17 23:32 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find any information on Thomas Browning who was married to Mary (surname unknown) and had the following children:

Susan - christened 4 Dec 1636 Sibbertswold
George - christened 28 Mar 1641 Shepherdswell
Henry - christened 28 March 1641 Shepherdswell

So far I haven't found a marriage for Thomas but the following three christenings all take place in the area around Sibbertswold/Shepherdswell and one of them might be my Thomas:

Thomas Browning - son of Thomas - christened 13 May 1610 in Nonnington
Thomas Browning - son of Abraham - christened 24 May 1607 in Nonnington

These two might be cousins. There is also an Edward Browning christened in Barfreston which borders Sibbertswold so there might be a connection there too.

If anyone can add anything else or help in anyway it would be great.

Hiya

I have been looking at some Brownings in Nonnington in case there was a connection. I don't have this marriage though. How far is Nonnington from Sibbertswold?

You asked ...How far is Nonnington from Sibbertswold?

About 6 miles or so Sibbertswold is now called Shepherdswell.

Not that far at all then. I'm pretty sure there is a connection with my Susan Browning here. I also now think that there are two related families with the Thomas Browning (born 1607) and the Thomas (born 1610) being cousins (it looks like their two fathers were brothers).

I'm hoping that if I can find a Will it will add more helpful info.

This looks like another family as my Susan Browning and her siblings were the children of Thomas and Mary. Could these cousins perhaps?
