About Hannah Mead

Alternate spelling of last name: Browne

The above site claims the children of John Browne Sr. and Dorothy Beauchamp to be (1) John, born in England; (2) Hannah; (3) Mary.

Notes from Kevin Avery at FindAGrave

Some sources incorrectly attribute to this [other] couple a daughter Hannah (Browne) Mead, wife of John Mead. But this is based on a supposed, and unproven, remarriage of Dorothy to a William Potter. William Potter acquired the share of the property of a John Brown (of Watertown,MA) who died in 1636, not the John Browne Sr who died in 1662 who was the husband of this Dorothy.

Therefore, Hannah Brown Mead is the daughter of a different John Brown, one that was of Watertown,MA and who also had a wife named Dorothy
