About Eleanore Browne (FitzAlan)

Eleanor FITZALAN, daughter and co- heir of Sir Thomas Fitz‑Alan of Beechworth/Betchworth Castle, (the brother of John, Earl of Arundel). From ca 1431, her name became Browne. She had 7 children with her first husband, Sir Thomas Browne. After Sir Thomas Browne was attainted and executed for treason, she married Sir Thomas Vaughn.
