John Charles Browne

Male abt 1880 - 1917  (~ 37 years)



  • Name John Charles Browne  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5
    • John Charles was always referred to as "Jack" by the family. He was incorrectly recorded as Charles John Browne in the 1881 Census at Amwell End. His registered name at birth was John Charles although for some reason the "e" of Browne may have been omitted from the official records. This has happened several times concerning records for the family, due to either incorrect recording or to incorrect transcription of original records. [ABB]
