  1. I do not believe this Thomas Browne is related to the Thomas Browne (Christian Maule) Of Isle of Wight, VA. Family has similar names but so does everyone from time period.

    1. I agree — they are separate families, just living near each other.
      Just to confuse us in trying to determine which Browne is our ancestor.
