Anne Bourne married Thomas Brownell, son of Robert Brownell and Mary Wilson, on 20 March 1637 at St Bennet's, Paul's Warf, London, England. Anne Bourne and Thomas Brownell immigrated in 1638.

Inscription: Note: According to grussell2005 - Stone is no longer visable. Since Thomas and Anne both died before Aquidneck Island had a stone carver, it isn't likely that their graves were ever marked with an inscribed stone (not to say that one could have been emplaced at a later date). More importantly, no inventory of Portsmouth historical cemeteries (dating back over 100 years) cite a listing for Thomas and Anne, hence my statement below. This is not to say that they are not buried in PO005, just to say there is no evidence one way or another. The original land holdings of Thomas do encompass the cemetery, but I don't believe that allows any positive conclusions other than they are probably buried somewhere on the property Ann is the daughter of Thomas Bourne and Elizabeth Martha Rouse.

There is extensive information about Thomas and his wife Anne Bourne at this web site.

Burial: Brownell Lot Portsmouth Newport County Rhode Island, USA

UNKNOWN-202350 and Bourne-36 appear to represent the same person because: I adopted the Ann Unknown profile so that we can merge it away/clean it up. The only data entered for her is that she was the wife of Thomas Brownell (243, whom I've already proposed to merge into Ann Bourne's husband Brownell-14). Thanks!
