From Essex Co. Probate- Vol. III, pp. 360-2

"Whereas there was an estate left by Edward Browne late of Ipswich deceased and he having by will disposed of his Reall estate unto his two sons Joseph & John Browne, and left all both Reall & psonall in the hands of his widow Faith Browne for tearme of life (except eight acres of Land & a pcell of meadow) and by his will his sd widow to disposed of the rest of the Estate to his children, Know all men by these presents, that I Faith Warner late wife unto the aforesayed Edward Browne being in good health at present, not knowing how soone a change may happen wch are all subject unto and sometimes suddaine, for the settling therefore of that estate left me to dispose off by my aforesaid husband, do make this my last will & testament first for my eldest sonn Joseph Browne, his Father having sufficiently provided for him by his will, to more than a dubble portion, I therefore have only given unto him, the shop tooles, wch amounted unto three pounds six shilling, wch he hath had in full possessions ever since his Father dyed

Disputed Origins

Many believe that Robert Lord, Grace Fitts, Anna Bartholomew, and Faith (Brown) Warner were siblings, all children of the widow Katherine Lord of Ipswich. There appears to be some evidence for this, though Anderson, Great Migration, 1634–35, does not believe it rises to the level of proof, saying:

In his will of 9 February 1659[/60?], Edward Brown of Ipswich mentioned "my eight acres of land within the common field which I bought of my Brother Bartholomew" [EPR 1:307]. This may be a clue to the identity of William Bartholomew's wife, or to some other relationship between Bartholomew and Brown. (Raymon Meyers Tingley thought that Brown's wife was Faith Lord, a sister of Robert Lord of Ipswich, and that Bartholomew's wife was therefore Anna Lord, another sibling [Tingley-Meyers 61, 205]. As usual, Tingley does not supply any evidence for these claims, and they should not be accepted without further research.)
