Edmund BROWNE
Anne WODER
Husband:  Edmund / Edmond BROWNE
Baptism:  4 Nov 1576, Somerton, SFK
Disposition:  buried St. Peter & St. Paul Churchyard, Lavenham, SFK
Father:  William BROWNE
Marriage said to be:  5 Aug 1603, Lavenham, SFK
Wife said to be:  Anne WODER
Baptism:  8 Jan 1596, Lavenham, SFK
Death:  1630, Lavenham SFK
Disposition:  buried St. Peter & St. Paul Churchyard, Lavenham, SFK
Father:  Robert WODER

Unless this was a late/adult baptism or a mistake in transcription, this Anne WODER cannot be the mother of Thomas and Edmund (she cannot have conceived a child at the age of 8).  Secondary sources are giving her a birth/baptism date of 8 Jan 1576, but you can't just change the year to make someone fit — and just because it's in Burke doesn't mean it's correct (he's a secondary source).  From the standpoint of Y-DNA testing, it doesn't matter who Edmund's wife was, but still, I'd like to find out what's going on here.  If you know, please share.

Children — bapt. Church of St. Peter & Paul, Lavenham, SFK:

Unless this is a late/adult baptism for Anne or unless the year is a transcription error, how can she be the mother of Thomas and Edmond?  This is the only Anne WODER in this database.

BROWN formerly OF LAVENHAM

GEORGE ESTABROOK BROWN...

Lineage.—EDMUND BROWNE, of Lavenham, Suffolk, probably of the same family as Thomas Browne of that place, who entered his pedigree at the visitation of 1664, as the son of Robert Browne, and bore arms, Argent on a bend sable, three eagles displayed of the field.  Edmund Browne was bapt. at Somerton, Suffolk, 4 Nov. 1576; m. at Lavenham, Aug. 1603, Anne Woder, and was father of...
1. THOMAS, of whom presently. 
2. Edmund (Rev)... 


See page on BROWN/BROWNE coats of arms.

5.  Brian Freeman.  Our Family History and Ancestry (online at family.drumhop.com):  says Thomas was Edmund's nephew and adopted by him.  Why?  We have a baptismal record that jibes with Burke in showing Edmond was his father.
