From the Browns of Nottingham:

Children of William Brown and Ann Mercer:

3. William, born 7mo 21st (September 21) 1689, married 1715 to Elizabeth, daughter of John Cowgill of Duck Creek; married secondly 1mo 15th 1721/22 (March 15, 1722) to Margaret Davis. He died about 1727 and his widow was married again 3mo 6th (May 6) 1730 to William, son of Samuel Kirk of Nottingham.

Ben M. Angel notes: This is apparently in error. First Month in the pre-1752 Quaker Calender is March.

William Browne, born 13 Jan 1681/82 in Marcus Hook, Delaware County, PA; died Bet. 1715 - 1717 in Principio, Cecil County, MD.
