What I have is from a book,page 1342-Cutter's Central N.Y Biographies and this is what it says.
Nicholas,son of Edward and Jane(Lide)Browne,settled at Lynn,Mass.,before 1628,and was one of the early planters of that town,residing in what is now Saugus,on the Northwestern side of Saddler's Rock. He had two hundred ten acres granted by the town,west of the "Great River." He was made freeman in 1638,and served as deputy to the general court in 1641. In 1644 he removed to Reading,where he was grant of two hundred acres from the town,and settled frist on the east of the Great Pond. He owned other lands in Reading and Lynn,on the north side of Ipswich river,granted by Reading.In 1650 he was made a commissioner to try small causes,and was deputy to the general court in 1655-56 and 1661,and also served as selectman the same years. He was heir to the Lide property in England,and in 1660 sent his son,described in an Indian deed as "ye worshipful Mr.Browne,"to England,to look after the preperty. Nicholas Browne died in Reading in 1671 and his estate was valued at 1,232 pounds,9s. He was probably married before coming to America,and the christian name of his wife was Elizabeth.Both were admitted to the Frist Church of Reading,Feb6,1663. Children of record: John,Joseph,Sarah,Cornelius,Josiah and Elizabeth.
Edward and Jane(Lide)Browne lived and died in the parish of Inkburrow,Worcestershire,England.The latter was a daughter of Thomas Lide.
I'm not related to the Lide but I might be to the Browne side but not sure let,these alot of Brownes from England and Mass. Hope this helps. Good Luck!!! Ronda
