      !SOURCE: http://www.genealogy.org/~smcgee. Gives Providence, RI, as birth place. However, Providence as a birth place is questionable, since Providence was not organized until 1636 (Handy Book for Genealogists. 6th ed. [Logan, UT: Everton Publishers, 1971], p. 195.)

      !SOURCE: John Osborne Austin, Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island (Albany, N.Y., 1887; reprint ed. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1978) p. 258. Gives birth date of 1630. (Previously recorded as 1629.)

      !SOURCE: Abby Isabel Brown Bulkley, The Chad Browne Memorial, Consisting of Genealogical Memoirs of a Portion of the Descendants of Chad and Elizabeth Browne (Brooklyn, N.Y., 1888), p. 9, 10. Gives birth 1630 in England. (Birth previously entered as 1629.)
