Information on the family lineage down through German S. Brown comes from
Inkberrow Parish is eight miles from Droitwich, Worchestershire. He lived
and died in the parish.
Edward was involved in two lawsuits, winning one and losing one, NEHGR says.
AF: Edward Brown, born about 1570, London, Middlesex, to Thomas Brown and Elizabeth Birkenhead. She the daughter of Henry Birkenhead, or Birkhened, Esquire, and Elizabeth Bunbury. Eliz. Birkenhead was born about 1569, of Huxley and Backford, Cheshire. She died 3 April 1602 in Cheshire. Buried at St. Peters, Chester, Cheshire. [This could well be the WRONG Edward Brown, although Cheshire is not too far from Worcester.]
Roberts\Reitwiesner: Ann Browne, born in England about 1595 and died in Lynn, Mass., 4 Dec. 1669, perhaps the sister of Nicholas Brown of Reading and daughter of Edward Brown and Jane Lide. Her first husband was perhaps Thomas Hutchinson of Charlestown, Mass.
A Witter Family History: Edward Brown, died 1678, Inkborrow, Worchestershire. [Death dates differ by nine years.]
