    Notes 
    • Query posted in the New England Historical Genealogical Register, v. 58, p. 406, Oct. 1904:
      “”Mrs. Scott.”--I should like some further light upon the antecedents of the lady bearing this name very early in the records of Martha’s Vineyard. It first appears under date of Oct. 5, 1663, in a list of lot owners who were assessed for a general fence, and the context is as follows: “the ingagers Thomas Mayher [senior] for himself: Thomas Harlock [son-in-law], Thomas Paine [step-son, deceased], 3 younger Mayhews [grandchildren], one: Mrs. Scott one: Widow Foulger of John] one: in aall eight lotts.” The words in brackets are mine. With the exception of Mrs. Scott and Mrs. Folger, the rest are known members of Gov. Thomas Mayhew’s family. The inclusion of these two ladies might establish an inference of relationship. In another earlier entry there appears this [in 1661]: “Thomas Mayhew for myself and all relations in the town, that is eight lots,” a corresponding number which is significant. The italics are mine. “Mrs. Scott” participated in divisions of laland in 1664, apparently as one of the proprietors, but she disappears entirely after that, and there are no deeds of hers on record. She was not a ‘home’ lot owner, as these are all accounted for. Previous to the appearance of this lady on the Vineyard records, there lived at Edgartown one Malachi Browning, who emigrated thither from Watertown, the previous home of the Mayhews. According to the Boston records, Malachi Browning died at the house of Robert Scott, in that town, Nov. 27, 1653, a fact which may establish some connection between our “Mrs. Scott” and the wife of Robert of Boston. Browning may have devised some of his Vineyard interests to her, probably a share of the “commons.” In his last illness, though it does not appear of record. Browning and Elizabeth Scott, wife of Robert, had legal business (letters of attestation) with William Aspinwall, the notary, of Boston, on the same day, 27 (8) 1649 (see Aspinwall Notarial Records, p. 250). Browning’s widow, Mary (Collier) died at Edgartown in 1672, and left her property to her grandson Thomas Vincent of that town.”

      From New England Historical and Genealogical Register: v. 62, p .167, 1908:
      “13. (8.) 1647 Malachi Browning late of Watertowne, N.E.: gent. constituted Capt. Robt Harding of Boston his true and lawfull Attorney granting him power to compound & agree with Mr. Tho. Browning of Mauldon in Essex clerke for his title in reversion unto all those lands in Ratchford hundred in Essex herein the sd. Malachie hath an estate in Reversion,” etc. (Aspinwall Notarial Records, p. 94). Rotchford or Rochford Hundred lies north of the mouth of the Thames between it and the river Crouch.
      25 Aug. 1646, Thomas Browing, clerk, Essex, compounded for delinquency. He had gone into the King’s quarters as chaplain to Lord Wentworth. He submitted to Parliament, and obtained Sir Thomas Fairfax’s pass, in March. 1646, and afterward tooook the National Covenant and negative oath. For his delinquency he was fined by Parliament £318. He was of Pembroke College, Cambridge, in 1635, and became rector of Wickham Bishops, Essex, in 1661, and resigned from there in 1689. Wickham is three and one quarter miles north of Maldon. There were families of the name of Browning at Maldon during the seventeenth century.”
