    Biography
    •    Lawyer, one of the Purchasers of the patent from Sir. Henry Roswell; commr. United Colonies, 1644-56; asst. mem. Council of War; with Edward Winslow was patentee of Rohoboth,MA
         He arrived at Plymouth possibly on the LYON in 1632 with his wife Dorothy and their children, though SAVAGE writes that this was a different John BROWNE.
        Nathaniel Morton in NEW ENGLAND MEMORIALL, pp. 163-64, wrote that Browne in his younger years traveled in the Low Countries and made friends with the minister John ROBINSON and others of the Separatist church; on arriving in New England, because of his former friendships, he decided to settle in Plymouth. He was then about fifty years old and his wife forty-nine.  He was on the 1633 tax list, and he became a freeman not long after (PCR 1:4)  In 1635/36 he became an Assistant (PCR 1:36), a position to which he was elected many times.  He could write to Governor Winthrop as "Loving Friend," and was on good terms with many of the leading men of Plymouth, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, and also of England.  He was a Commissioner of the United Colonies and was used by Plymouth in many inter-colony negotiations.  In 1645 he joined Freeman, Hatherly, and Standish in their unsuccessful support of Vassall's petition. In 1652 Browne sued Rev. Samuel NEWMAN, minister of the Rehoboth Church, for defamation, and was awarded  £100 plus costs which Browne later remitted. Browne was the resident of Rehoboth who in 1655 offered to make up the deficiency for seven years of residents who did not want to pay for maintenance of the church.  In 1655 he left for England, staying there four years, during which he served as executor for the estate of the senior Sir. Henry Vane, father of the former governor of the same name of the Bay Colony, later one of the leading men in Commonwealth England.  He returned to Plymouth in 1660
