About Malachi Browning

MALACHI BROWNING was born about 1600 in Maldon, Essex, England, the son of William Browning and Elizabeth Vernon. His father died April 23, 1635 at St. Botolph Bish, London, Middlesex, England.

The dates for the Browning family were confusing, even though a number of researchers agreed with those dates. Most researchers indicated Malachi married Mary Collier May 22, 1628 at St. Helen, London, Middlesex, England. Mary was born about 1604 in London, Middlesex, England, the daughter of Thomas and Susanna Collier. Malachi and Mary (Collier) Browning were the parents of at least three children; one son and two daughters.

The problem is that most researchers indicated that one of their daughters, Marie, was born in America in 1625. Marie was born about 1625 in Edgartown, Massachusetts, but this is three years before her parents were married. Either the dates are in error or they had Marie in America and then went back to England to be married, returning to Massachusetts.

They must have come to America between 1625 and 1630.

Malachi, an owner of a large book shop in Boston, died November 27, 1653 in Boston, Massachusetts about 53 years old while his wife, Mary (Collier) Browning died September 7, 1672 in Watertown, Middlesex County, Massachusetts about 68 years old.
