Richard Browne of Lawley
« on: Wednesday 19 August 20 06:04 BST (UK) »
Kia ora

I am looking for a photo of Lawley Manor that Richard Browne owned in the mid sixteen hundreds.

I also want to track down this
P.R.O., CP 25(2)/590/1649 East. no. [9]; S.R.O. 1224, box 223, pedigree of Ric. Browne.

Which is listed in the British History on-line in relation to Ric Browne's pedigree and his ownership of Lawley manor.

How does one go about doing this?

These are two separate documents.

The first (P.R.O., CP 25(2)/590/1649 East. no. [9]) is from the feet of fines for Shropshire in 1649, recording the sale of the manor in that year. It is held at the National Archives, as catalogued here ...

http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C1296348

The document itself is not online, and you won't be able to order a copy until the archive's reproduction service is fully operational again. It will be in formulaic Latin and probably not very helpful from a genealogical point of view.

Many thanks, I had looked at getting something else from archives and seen that they weren't supplying anything that they would have to get and physically copy.

In the listing it does say this:
, pedigree of Ric. Browne.

I was hoping that would give me more information on him but no?

You could try English Heritage Archives and Library in Swindon, they have an enormous photographic collection of country and manor houses covering the whole country.

As I said above, there are two separate documents.

The pedigree of Richard Browne (S.R.O. 1224, box 223) is at Shropshire Archives, as already advised by Mckha in reply #1 above.

The document referencing the sale of the manor (P.R.O., CP 25(2)/590/1649 East. no. [9]) is at the National Archives, as advised by me in reply #3 above.

His will is online - Prerogative Court of Canterbury 1677 available from the National Archives or Ancestry. It is in Latin and I am afraid my "o" grade Latin is not up to it!

I googled Richard Browne Lawley Manor and suggest you do so and have a look at google books. The first three hits are reports of Cases Argued and Determined in the Court of Common Pleas which seems to refer to Richard Browne's will in a fair bit of detail and names family members.
