About Anne Brandon (Browne)

Anne Browne, died 1510, was the daughter of Sir Anthony Browne (1443-November 19, 1506) and his first wife, Eleanor Oughtred (d. before 1500) and was at court as a maid of honor to Elizabeth of York shortly before the queen’s death. She had the misfortune to fall in love with Charles Brandon (1485-1545). They both lived in the household of the earl of Essex c.1506. They were betrothed, and lived together as man and wife, but after Anne became pregnant with their first child, Anne (c.1507-January 1558), Brandon abandoned her to marry her stepmother's sister, Margaret Neville, a wealthy widow. When that marriage was declared null and void, on the grounds of Brandon’s precontract with Anne, he returned to her and married her in 1509. Anne died the following year, probably shortly after giving birth to a second daughter, Mary (1510-1541+).
