About Elizabeth Rachel Browning (Lloyd)

Some sources believe Elizabeth is the daughter of Sampson Lloyd and Elizabeth Good. This line goes back to King Henry VIIII of England. Burke's "Landed Gentry" says Sampson Lloyd had four daughters by Elizabeth Good. They aren't named. Burke's "History of Commoners of Great Britain & Ireland ..." names the four girls and says Elizabeth Lloyd was bom 08 Jan 1687 and died 30 Mar 1697 (age 10). If this is correct, that Elizabeth Lloyd isn't the one who married Francis Browning.

Some sources say the wife of Francis Browning was Elizabeth Carter Lloyd. Jim Browning says that these are two different families. Elizabeth Carter, the widow of Col. John Carter, married John Lloyd, son of Col. William Lloyd.

This John Lloyd is shown as administrator of the estates of both his father and his brother, Thomas Lloyd. Additionally, Elizabeth was administratrix of her late husband's estate, and following her death, shortly after she and John Lloyd were married, John took over the responsibilities of running Col. John Carter's estate as well. Some researchers say that John and Elizabeth (Carter) Lloyd had a daughter, Elizabeth Lloyd, who married Francis Browning. But Jim believes the wife of Francis Browning was the daughter of George and Joanna (Gregson) Lloyd.

One source says Elizabeth was the daughter of William Lloyd (1680) and Mary Ann Crowley (1682) and a granddaughter of Col. Edward Lloyd and Alice Couch. Col. Edward Lloyd had moved from VA into Talbot Co MD in the mid- I600s, where he founded a dynasty of political leaders of the colony, establishing his seat at "Linton" on the Wye River. His grandson and namesake, later Major General Edward Lloyd, would serve as Chief Magistrate of Maryland from 1709 to 1715.

In an extract from a letter written by John Armistead Browning of Greenfield, Rappahannock Co VA to Mrs. Nettie Browning Danforth Kinnison, John says: "Cousin Nettie, I may have told you before, but I will repeat it, our Francis Browning married a Maryland Lloyd of a high family."
