Research Notes

FHL book 929.873 H279mr "The Hastings Family, A History of the Hastings Family from Thomas Hastings, who sailed from the port of Ipswich, England, to Watertown, Massachusetts, in 1634, to Elizabeth Hastings, who died in Marlboro, Vermont, in 1800...," by Richard T. Martin (2007), p. 37:

"Abraham Browne (1639/1640-1667) purchased land in Groton, where he planned to settle near his sister, Lydia. But, Mary Dix, to whom he was engaged to be married, was unwilling to go to Groton. Mary sent a Mr. Thomas Parks "to go to Ipswich to treat with Mrs. Hodges (Abraham’s mother) to see what she would do for her son, Abraham Browne, upon his marriage." His mother gave her son "full power to settle upon her land in Watertown." This satisfied Mary Dix and she married Abraham on February 5, 1662/1663.

Abraham and Mary had two children: Lydia Browne (1663) and Abraham Browne (1665-1678). In 1667, Abraham died and the next year Mary married Samuel Rice of Sudbury, by whom she had four children. Mary died in 1678
