John Browne of Stamford, Alderman in 1448, 1453, 1462, d. between 1462, 1470, and was bur. in All Saints church, having had, by his wife Agnes, with other issue, and elder son [Christopher].
The Browne family for several generations was involved with All Saints Church in Stamford. Especially in the 1470s & 80s, the Browne brothers, John and William, help reconstruct the church building after the War of the Roses. As was the custom of their times, for wealthy benefactors, burial was inside the church--in the floor, often. Above are the "memorial brasses" for John Browne and his wife Agnes. These brass outlines are life-size and are fitted into the stone above their graves in the interior of the church. Other members of the Browne family are also buried within.
