Br10 Sir George Browne of Caversham b about 1605 died circa February 1683/84.1 He was buried on 9 February 1683/84 at St. Gile's-in-the-Fields Church, London, England.1 http://www.gutenberg.org/files/20369/20369.txt Sir G. Browne, Bart._ Vol. vii., p. 528..--The particulars given by NEWBURY, while introducing his Query, are extremely vague and inaccurate.
In the first place, the individual he styles _Sir_ George Browne, _Bart._, was in reality simple George Browne, _Esq._, of Caversham, Oxon, and Wickham, Kent. This gentleman, who would have been a valuable acquisition to any nascent colony, married Elizabeth _not_ Eleanor, second daughter of Sir Richard Blount, of Maple Durham, and had by her nineteen children, pretty evenly divided as to sex: for I read that of the daughters, three at least died young; other three became nuns and one married ---- Yates, Esq., a Berkshire gentleman. Of the sons, three, as NEWBURY relates, fell gloriously fighting for Charles, their sovereign. Neither of these latter were married: indeed, the only sons who ventured at all into the bonds of wedlock were George, the heir, and John, a younger brother. George married Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Francis Englefield, Knt., a Popish recusant, and left two daughters, his co-heiresses. John, his brother, created a baronet May 19th, 1665, married Mrs. Bradley, a widow, and had issue three sons and three daughters. The sons, Anthony, John, and George, inherited the baronetcy in succession, the two former dying bachelors: the third son, Sir George, married his sister-in-law, Gertrude Morley, and left three sons, the first of whom, Sir John, succeeded his father; and with him the baronetcy became dormant, if not indeed extinct.

Br9+ 17 children including 3 daughters who became nuns of these may have been James Browne Br9 or the nephew James above. The dates of birth postulated above seem to exclude the nephew.
