About Anne Fermor

This Anne Browne is so frequently confused with Anne Browne Petre (d. March 10, 1582). They were the daughters of cousins, both named William Browne and each of their fathers served a term as Lord Mayor of London. This Anne's father was the Sir William Browne (d. March 22, 1508) who was Lord Mayor in 1507/8. He was buried in St. Mary Aldermanbury, London. Her siblings were named William (d.1525), Anthony, Katherine, Leonard, and Margaret. In 1513, Anne married Sir Richard Fermor of Easton Neston, Northamptonshire (d. November 17, 1551), a wool merchant. Their children were Anne (c.1515-1553), Joan (1516-April 1592), William, Sir John (d. December 20, 1571), Elizabeth, George, Thomas (d. August 8, 1580), Ursula, Jerome (1528-1602), and Mary (d. September 27, 1573). The family was Catholic and Fermor was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1540 for visiting his Catholic chaplain in prison. He was soon released on bail, however, and was pardoned in June 1541. By 1550, he had regained most of his lands. His will of July 1, 1551 makes provision for Anne.
