Mayor, Totnes Nov. 1396-8, 1399-1400, 1401-3.1


In the year of his two elections to Parliament for Totnes, Browning and his wife were recorded as residing in the town.2 His five mayoralties suggest that he was an important and well-respected local figure, and it is surprising that nothing more has been discovered about him.
