I have a William Browning born 1615 in London,Middlesex,England. I have that he died in 1682 in Jamestown,VA. I do not have the name of his wife. I hope that there might be a connection. I also have an Enos Browning. I have that he was born about 1780 in Culpepper,VA. and that he died in 1815 in South Carolina. I have that he married Jane Teim (possibly Trim)she was born about 1781 in Virginia and that she died November 15, 1843 in Logan City, VA. If you find a connection please let me know.

I have a John Browning from Jamestown also!

I have a John Browning born in 1594 probably in Willisham Hall,England. He died in Elizabeth City, Va. He left Gravesend, England in 1621-22 on the ship the "Abigail". He settled in Elizabeth City, Va. He served in the Virginia House of Burgess (similar to a state legislature)in 1629. John was probably the father of William Browning but could be his uncle or some other close male relative. I have another John Browning born about 1633 in Jamestown, Va. He died in 1682 in Jamestown, Va. John's wife is unknown. If any of this matches your information please email me at

I got further back than the year 1554
