John Browne (circa 1608-1691) was a parliamentary official. He became a student in the Middle Temple in 1628 and was appointed clerk of the parliaments in 1638. Following the break between the king and parliament in 1642, he remained at Westminster to serve the House of Lords. In 1650 the House of Commons appointed Henry Scobell, over Browne, as their clerk and as designated clerk of the parliaments, but in 1660, the House of Lords reinstated Browne as clerk of the parliaments. He served the house for another thirty years until his death in 1691. He acquired property in Northamptonshire and as well as a house in Twickenham, and was father-in-law to Sir Roger Cave. https://snaccooperative.org/view/…
