- William Browne settled in Sudbury, Mass., having one of the first lots assigned there. It was the fourth one east of the first Meeting House and adjoining that of Edmond Goodnough.
Later William Browne settled on 200 acres near Nobscot, Mass. This land was granted to him in 1649 by the General Court in answer to a petition. He was made a Freeman 2 June 1641.
He became prominent in Sudbury; was captain of the militia, first deacon of the church and Surveyor of Sudbury in 1643. He made a will dated 20 May 1676, which was probated 25 Oct. 1676. He bequeathed to his wife, Mary, his whole interest in lands given to her by her father, Thomas Besbeech.
In the History of Sudbury, by Alfred S. Hudson and published by the town of Sudbury in 1889, is a map of the old town. It shows the location of the Meeting House lot with William Browne's four acres adjoining it on the east, along Mill Road. The road to Concord, Mass. was just west of the Meeting House lot.
