- Major Browne was much engaged in the business of the town; a Representative for a succession of years and commander of a company of Horse in the Indian Wars.
In 1701 he was allowed compensation by the General Court for a horse lost in pursuit of Indians in 1697. Thomas Browne died 7 May 1709. It is recorded in the diary of Judge Sewall as follows: "Major Browne was buried in the old burying place." The tombs of Hopestill Browne (d. 1731) contain descendants up to the last burial in 1852. Of the several vaults at Wayland and also at Sudbury, non were marked "Browne," but several had the names obliterated (1933).
The first church was built in 1649, and stood on the westerly part of the old burying ground at Sudbury. The site is marked by a slight embankment and has a Tercentenary marker placed there in 1930. Just south of this and about fifty feet distant is a small grave stone, the only one remaining in a considerable space. This stone was well preserved and buried quite deeply. The inscription reads, "Here lies ye body of Mrs. Patience Browne, wife of Major Thomas Browne aged about 59 years. Died Aug. y 15th 1706." In this cemetery are two very old flat markers in excellent condition and marked "Goodnough."
