  1. Where 'Years of birth' are shown then these are estimates and were NOT quoted by the Sussex Genealogy source 1. They are based on available facts and generally assume 1st child  is born a minimum 25 years after fathers birth and subsequent children are born at 2 yearly intervals. Where an exact date has been quoted then this is usually from the Parish Register.
  2. In general the family name BROWNE was used up to about 1700 and then BROWN became standard
