Relevance: Although there is no direct ancestor of mine in this tree, it is included to supplement the article on Lowestoft Porcelain. However it has transpired that Peter Murray, a descendant of Robert Browne, was also descended from the Glasspoole family, descended from the Mewse family of Lowestoft, my direct ancestors! Thus a connection does exist.

1 Robert BROWNE (b between 1703 and 1705 d 5 Feb 1771 Lowestoft) m Elizabeth BROWN (b abt 1698 d 30 May 1785 Lowestoft) 1 Apr 1730

Note: Robert, who may have been the son of Robert (b 1680) and Frances BROWNE, Initially trained as a blacksmith but in 1757 entered a partnership with 3 others to establish the Lowestoft Porcelain factory. He is credited with designing as well as painting some of the best surviving pieces.

Elizabeth was said to be "of Halesworth". Their gravestone reads: "In memory of Robert Browne who died Febry 5th 1771 aged 67 years. Also Elizabeth his wife who died May 30th 1785 aged 87 years". This inscription is carved on the end of a stone originally dedicated to his grandson Robert and evidently dates from some time after his death. See his will here

6 Susanna BROWNE m James HUGHES (b abt 1736 d bef Jan 1797 Lowestoft) 19 Oct 1760 Lowestoft

Note: James was a china painter in the Lowestoft Porcelain factory. There is some suggestion that James Hughes left Lowestoft about 1770, abandoning his wife and children, because he seems to have stopped painting china at that date, although Susanna was still described as "the wife of James Hughes" in her father's will of 1770. However, her share of Robert's money was to be paid to her personally as an annuity, whereas her sisters were to get theirs as a lump sum, which suggests that, at the very least, Robert Browne did not trust James Hughes not to squander Susanna's money if he got his hands on it. Susanna was buried next to her parents at St Margaret's Lowestoft.

7 Robert BROWNE m Elizabeth WOODTHORPE (bap 19 Mar 1746 Carleton Colville d 26 Jan 1832 Lowestoft) 10 Jul 1769 Carleton Colville

Note: They married by licence which was supported by James Hughes, a china painter at the factory. Elizabeth was the daughter of William WOODTHORPE and Sarah BUGG. Robert seems to have worked in the Lowestoft porcelain factory all his life and was the manager from his father's death in 1771 until it closed in about 1802, a few years before Robert's own death. He introduced the use of new colours and overglaze enamel. Their gravestone reads "In memory of Robert Browne who departed this life September 18th 1806 in the 66th year of his age. also of Elizabeth Browne relict of the above who departed this life January 26th 1832 aged 86 years".
Elizabeth's family were the squires of Carlton Colville, having gravitated north from Mutford and then Gisleham about 1700. Many of the small estates in the Hundreds of Mutford and Lothingland were occupied by one of her relatives, and three of her brothers owned most of the parish of Carlton Colville, which is just to the south of Lowestoft and now virtually incorporated within the town.
However, the line started to falter in the early 19th century and by the time of the First World War there were no more Woodthorpes in East Suffolk and the Uplands estate in Carlton Colville, which is probably where Elizabeth grew up, was sold in 1920 for housing. See his will here

10 Robert BROWNE m Sarah THURTELL (bap 4 Sep 1759 St Julian, Norwich, d 16 Nov 1818 Gorleston bur in Thurtell vault, Blundeston Church) 25 Sep 1787

Note: Sarah married again to John CLARK after Robert's death. She was the daughter of James Thurtell and Winifred NUNN. Robert's gravestone reads: "Sacred to the Memory of Robert Brown who died September 6th 1813 Aged 52 Years" and Sarah's reads " Sarah the Wife of John Clark formerly Widow of above Robert Brown who died November 16th 1818 Aged 59 Years". Robert and Sarah lived in Bradwell for about 10 - 12 years after their wedding, and then went to Pudding Norton Hall some time between 1797 and 1812. After Robert died, Sarah appears to have left her son and daughter in law in Pudding Norton and gone to live in Southtown, just a couple of miles from Bradwell, where she lived for the rest of her life. [Pudding Norton is one of Norfolk's "lost villages", just south of Fakenham

Like several other of his relatives, she had named one of her children after her uncle, who was wealthy and childless, but it doesn't seem to have had the desired effect, but perhaps a gift of money had already been given to her.

23 Robert BROWNE m Sarah BOBY (bap 5 Jul 1776 Beccles d 6 Dec 1850 bur 10 Dec 1850 Lowestoft) 15 Nov 1798 Beccles

Note: Sarah was the daughter of Nicholas and Ann BOBY

Robert was a grocer and tea dealer. He was organist at Lowestoft St Nicholas for 64 years (which means he started at the age of 14). In 1851 he was living in High Street Lowestoft.

All but one of their children died in the first couple of years of life, pointing to a genetic problem carried presumably by Sarah

Their gravestone reads: Sacred to the memory of Sarah, beloved wife of Robert Browne who died Dec 6th 1850 aged 74 years, Also of Robert Browne beloved husband of the above who died Jun 2nd 1854 aged 78 years, organist of this parish 64 years.

24 John BROWNE m Susanna BOBY (bap 25 Aug 1779 Beccles d 27 Apr 1846 Bungay bur 1 May 1846 Bungay) 28 May 1801

Note: John was organist at the Holy Trinity Church, Bungay, and in 1851 he is shown as living at Lower Olland Street, Bungay.

Susanna was sister to Sarah, wife of John's brother Robert (23 above) and appears to have had the same inherited problem with her children.
When John Browne died in 1855 he left all his money to his only surviving son Robert in trust for the upkeep of his daughter Elizabeth, which suggests that there might have been something wrong with her, as if she was of perfectly sound mind and in good health there was no reason why he shouldn't have left Elizabeth the money outright. However, in the 1851 census, she was listed as her father's housekeeper, which doesn't support the idea that she was handicapped in any way.

Note: In 1871 Robert had a school in Wharton Street, Bungay, with eight boarding pupils. Whether the school had other day boys is unknown, but it probably did - although there was a perfectly good grammar school in Bungay at the time. No record of children of this marriage has been found

26 Benjamin BROWNE m (a) Martha WELLS (bap 6 Nov 1879 Lowestoft d 17 Dec 1817 Lowestoft bur 21 Dec 1817) 11 Jul 1811 Lowestoft (b) Maria CROW (b 1789 Bradwell d 5 Aug 1867 Bungay) 4 Jan 1820 Blundeston with Flixton

Note: Benjamin Browne had a varied career. He started out in life as a tailor (which probably means that he had a tailor's business and employed tailors rather than that he sat cross-legged himself sewing coats.) He then went into the smoked fish business in the 1820s and presumably produced Yarmouth bloaters (or perhaps kippers). He gravitated from there into the wholesale fish business. Some time in the 1840s (perhaps when his son Thomas died in 1847) he moved to Leeds with his youngest child, John, who became a dentist there. Benjamin was a fish merchant in Leeds until his death. One presumes that he was originally in business with his son Benjamin Wells Browne, who was also a fish merchant at the supply end of the chain.

Martha's gravestone reads: "Sacred to the memory of Martha, the beloved wife of Benjamin Browne who died Dec 17th 1817 aged 37 years."

Maria was the daughter of John CROW and Virtue BARNELL

In 1861 Benjamin and Maria lived at 40 Coburg Street, Leeds

28 Lois BROWNE m William BEARE ( b abt Jan 1785 bur 11 Jan 1832 Heigham) 16 Nov 1811 Lowestoft

Note: All the children of William and Lois Beare were baptised in the Independent chapel in Bungay. This must have at the very least given rise to a little awkwardness, given that Lois's brother was the organist of Holy Trinity church. What William Beare did for a living is unknown, but the family seems to have moved to the outskirts of Norwich a few years before William died.
All the surviving children of this family seem to have migrated to London. Their father died when Lucy, the eldest, was 20, and their mother died 5 years later, leaving a family in which the oldest breadwinner, William, was only 18. Lois, who was apparently the second daughter, married in 1838 in Bermondsey, Surrey, so the family must have gone to London either before their mother's death or very shortly afterwards.
By 1841 three of the children, George, Marianne and Charlotte were in Norwich whilst William and Benjamin are believed to have moved to London

Note: In 1861 Benjamin was a boarder at Saham Toney School, Norfolk, and in 1871 he was lodging with Henry CROP at 24 Hanover St Islington. In 1881 he was living at 9 Islington Green, London and boarding at 19 Poole St Shoreditch in 1891. He was a clerk with a looking glass mfgr in 1871, a clerk in 1881 and a french polisher in 1891.
Benjamin is a bit of a dark horse. He appears to have married in Kensington in the last quarter of 1875, either to Annie Goldsmith or to Rosa Adelaide Youngman, and indeed he did say that he was married in subsequent censuses, but he was not living with his wife either in 1881 or in 1891, unless she was fortuitously just away for the night both times. However, on both occasions Benjamin was living in lodgings, which married people didn't normally do for any length of time. I haven't managed to find his wife in either census, and I can't find Benjamin himself in 1901, although he doesn't appear to have died in the interim.

88 Ann Elizabeth CHASTON m William SHEARING ( b 17 Dec 1800 South Elmham bap 21 Dec 1800 South Elmham bur 10 Jun 1880 South Elmham) 15 Sep 1830 Lowestoft.

Note: Witnesses to the marriage were Mary Ann FINCH, Daniel CHASTON, Robert DARBY, Alfred CHASTON. William was a yeoman farmer, living at Elm House, South Elmham in 1851, 61 and 71. His gravestone reads: "In memory of William Shearing who died June 4th 1880 in the 80th year of his age"
In the 1871 census, Shearings Farm is the first house in the parish, and William Shearing appears to have had by far the largest farm in St Cross (230 acres); most of the others were less than 100 acres. His father was a yeoman and owned his own land, but William rented part of his farm from October 1856 from the local squire, Sir Robert Shafto Adair. For this he paid 162 in 1863 and 198 in 1873 (for almost 20% more land).
The schedule of the land rented by William Shearing from Sir Robert included:
Arable: Bridge Hill 11 acres 2 roods 12 poles, Mill Mount 10.1.36, Broom Pightle, 11.2.21, First and Second Furze Closes, 5.2.0 each, Five Acres, 5.1.13, Neathouse Hill, 4.1.34, Palmer's Brook, 5.0.20, Lower Palmer's Brook, 3.1.17, Two Acres, 3.1.0, Thirty Acres, 8.3.10 = 75 acres and 3 poles. Why the Two Acre Field actually included 3 acres and the Thirty Acre Field only just under 9 is a good question.
Pasture: Lymburn Meadow, 1 acre 3 roods 13 poles, Lower Meadow, 3.0.26, Home Close, 5.1.5, Church Meadow, 5.3.20, Moat Meadow, 4.1.15, Small Pightle, 0.2.36, New Allotment, 2.0.17. In addition there were the yards and gardens, 2 acres, 2 roods 2 poles = 25 acres, 3 roods and 14 poles.
This makes a total area of 100 acres, 3 roods and 17 poles, so William must have farmed just under 130 acres of his own.
From 1873 onwards William rented an additional 18 acres than Sir Robert had purchased from George Freestone's estate. This included the Exchange Piece, the Winding Field, Oberwatts, Great Oberwatts, the Allotment to 264 (Palmer's Brook) and a cottage and garden
. Ann Elizabeth's gravestone reads: "In memory of Ann Elizabeth the dearly beloved wife of William Shearing of this parish who died Febry 18th 187[4] aged 70 years A tender mother and a loving wife With -- -- to adorn this life The kindest temper with the warmest heart Husband and children here a time must part".

William Woodthorpe Williams founded a haberdashery business, W. Williams & Son (Bread Street) Ltd., that is still trading (2005). For over 80 years the business was indeed in Bread Street, in the City of London, but the warehouse there was completely destroyed during the Blitz in 1941. After the war the firm moved to Aldersgate Street, where they still were in 1975, and they now appear to be based in Holloway.

118 Elizabeth Virtue BROWNE m (a) Robert BURTSAL ( b 5 Jun 1803 Bungay bap 9 Jun 1803 d 22 Apr 1856 Ellingham, Nfk) 24 Nov 1840 (b) James Elliott Leopold HUDSON (b 25 Mar 1818 Wisbech d 18 Aug 1890 Bungay bur 22 Aug 1890 Bungay) 19 Sep 1859
Note: At their wedding, Captain Nelson Burtsal, the bridegroom's elder brother and one of the witnesses, had only returned to England three weeks previously after an absence of 21 years at sea.
JEL Hudson's main claim to fame was the fact that, at the age of 19, he had survived a shipwreck in the Gulf of St Lawrence that had killed his parents, his uncle and nine of his brothers and sisters. Among the 40-odd passengers of the barque
Colborne, only James, his elder brother Henry and one other man escaped drowning, along with half a dozen of the crew. James was then married three times between 1842 and 1859. His first marriage produced one son who died aged 20; by his second wife he had no children at all, as she appears to have survived only for a couple of years after the marriage. Fortunately, Elizabeth Burtsal, his third wife, gave him three surviving children and outlived him.
JEL was said to have become a rather crotchety and bad-tempered old man in later years. It is not difficult to see what aspects of his life might have contributed to this.

In 1841 and 1851 Robert and Elizabeth lived at Water Mills, Bungay Rd, Ellingham - Robert was a miller and corn merchant. His gravestone reads: "In memory of Robert Burtsal born June 5th 1803 died April 22nd 1856 Death separated us with grief and pain But hope in heaven we shall meet again"

In 1861 and 71 James and Elizabeth were at "The Ollands" Bungay, and in 1881 and 1891 at St John's Rd, Bungay (probably the Ollands still.)

In 1861 William was at 5 Springfield Terrace, Camberwell, and from 1871 at each census to 1901 he was at Woodthorpe, Atkins Road, Clapham, Surrey. His occupation was given as a linen draper.
William was apparently in business at one time with his brother-in-law William Tarn. because there is a notice in The Times in 1855 of the dissolution of the partnership between them. William's brother, John, with whom he was almost certainly in business, had died in 1853, so whether the three of them had been partners from the beginning or whether William Beare had joined the firm in 1853 when John Tarn died and it hadn't worked out is unknown

Note: Robert Moverley lived and worked with the Chastons for at least 30 years, and very likely nearly 40, as he probably came to work for Anna Chaston shortly after her husband died in 1863, when Robert would have been about 19. In the 1871 his age is given as 31, so he may have been lying about it in order to get the job and wasn't found out until some time in the 1870s.
Thus, by the time he married her, he had shared a house with his bride for about 35 years, since she was a child. She can have been under no illusion that he was madly in love with her. However, she stood to inherit the chemist's shop and he was the person who had run it for most of his life, so it was very reasonable for them to join forces.
