  • Sir Anthony Browne, KG (c.1500[1] – 6 May 1548) was an English courtier and Knight of the Shire.
  • He was the son of Sir Anthony Browne, Standard Bearer of England and Governor of Queenborough Castle, by his wife Lady Lucy Neville, daughter of John Neville, 1st Marquess of Montagu and widow of Sir Thomas Fitzwilliam.[1] Anthony junior was thereby half-brother of William Fitzwilliam, 1st Earl of Southampton.
  • By 1528, Browne married Alice, daughter of Sir John Gage, and by her had seven sons and three daughters which included:[1]
    • Anthony Browne, 1st Viscount Montagu;
    • Mary Browne, who married John Grey of Pirgo and was the mother of Henry Grey, 1st Baron Grey of Groby;
    • Mabel Browne, who married Gerald FitzGerald, 11th Earl of Kildare;
    • Annabelle Browne, who married Thomas Spring of Castlemaine.
  • His recorded royal service began in 1518, when he was appointed surveyor and master of hunting for the Yorkshire castles and Lordships of Hatfield, Thorne, and Conisbrough. He was included him in an embassy to hand over Tournai to Francois I. Thomas Howard, Earl of Surrey, knighted him on 1 July 1522 .... etc.
  • Sometime after 1540, he married Elizabeth Fitzgerald, daughter of Gerald FitzGerald, 9th Earl of Kildare, his wife Alice having died. They had two children who died young. Elizabeth was one of the great beauties of the Court, known as " the fair Geraldine". After his death she remarried Edward Clinton, 1st Earl of Lincoln.
  • As a conservative, he had to be careful not to be brought down by factional politics at the court of Henry VIII. He became so trusted by Henry that in the King's latter years, Browne held a dry stamp of the King's signature, to use for minor letters. By 1547, he was Keeper of Oatlands Palace.
  • He died on 6 May 1548 at Byfleet, Surrey, and was buried at Battle in a tomb with his first wife. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Anthony.
  • .... etc.

  • Browne, Anthony (d.1548) by Julia Anne Elizabeth Roundell
  • BROWNE, Sir ANTHONY (d. 1548), politician, only son of Sir Anthony Browne, standard-bearer of England and constable of Calais, and of his wile Lady Lucy Nevill, daughter and coheiress of John Nevill, marquis Montacute, and niece of Richard, earl of Warwick, was knighted in 1623 after the successful siege of Morlaix. In 1624 he was made esquire of the body to King Henry VIII, and from that time until the death of Henry he became more and more the friend of his sovereign. ....
  • Browne was twice married. His first wife, whose effigy lies on the tomb at Battle beside his own, was Alys, daughter of Sir John Gage, K.G., constable of the Tower. By her he had seven sons and three daughters; the eldest son, Anthony, succeeded to his father's estates, and was created in 1554 Viscount Montague. Browne's second wife was Lady Elizabeth Fitzgerald, daughter of Gerald, ninth earl of Kildare, and better known as 'the fair Geraldine.' At the time of this marriage Browne was sixty, and the bride only fifteen years of age. Her two sons died in infancy. After the death of Browne his young widow married Sir Edward Clinton, first earl of Lincoln, and was buried with him in St. George's Chapel, Windsor.
