notes

John Browne is buried in Church of All Saints (Episcopal) in Stamford, Lincolnshire, Enlgand, erected at his own expense. His body, and the body of his wife Margery are buried at upper end of north aisle of the church. A plate in wall has dates of their burial.

A steeple to the church was built later by son William.

"The most prominent family in the town were the Brownes, whose lavish brasses still decorate the floor of All Saints' Church. The Brownes were wool merchants and members of the wool staple at Calais; it is possible that the large timber-framed building overlooking Red Lion Square (Nos. 6-7) was the Brownes' wool house. Their wealth and domination of the town was confirmed in stone when they rebuilt most of All Saints Church in the 1470s and 80s. The tower with its soaring pinnacle spire was an elegant match for the old steeple of St. Mary's"
