Warrington has the following: He had been gentleman of the Privy Chamber to Charles I, and resident in France for that monarch. He was created a baronet 1st Sepember 1649, and died 10th February 1683. Much is said of him in the diary of John Evelyn, who married his only child and heir; and thus became possessor of Sayes Court.

Browne (at the Restoration) returned unnoticed and empty-handed...undermined by the lack of recognition for his selfish service. Despite his efforts to pass the role to Evelyn, Browne was reappointed a clerk to the Privy Council, the post he had bought for £1,500 almost 20 years before.
