Browne Genealogy & History

Browne is an English surname, from the Old English, Norse, and Old German brun, meaning brown. It was used for people with brown hair or skin, particularly for those of nationalities that tended to have that, or people wearing brown clothing, such as a monk or friar, who were often required to wear brown robes. Browne family history begins with William le Brun, added to the Northumberland county pipe rolls in 1169. Browne genealogy counts among its ranks a few famous people, such as Browne cartoonist family Dik and Chance Browne, Russian field marshal and Livonia Governor George Browne, and Confederate Secretary of State and General William Browne.
