Are William and Richard Mann Sr brothers?

According to Richard Mann, Sr.'s profile he and his wife are from Cornwall. According to his brother (at least he his listed as a brother) William's profile, William Mann is from Kent. While it is possible that 1. Richard and William are brothers, and 2. Richard is from Cornwall and 3. William is from Kent, it seems unlikely. Reading through the profiles, I also see no evidence that they are actually brothers. Does anyone have more information on this?

Richard Man, from Norwich, Norfolk, and William Mann from Kent are not brothers, but maybe Cousins, but that has not been determined yet.

Keith,

While researching the Mann ancestry I found this:

The genealogy of Richard Mann, commencing with his son Thomas, is copied from the " History of Hanover," Massachusetts, and agrees with that given in Mr. Farmer's Genealogical Register, as far as he goes with it Though what follows carries the list of descendants down to the year 1843, no mention is made of the Rev. Samuel Mann, the first minister of "Wrentham, Massachusetts, and his posterity. The writer of this sketch thinks, therefore, that Richard had another son, whose genealogy is not given till we come to "William Mann, the father of the Rev. Samuel Mann, about the year 1641.

So it is possible Richard Man had another son, William?  I also found an excerpt that Richard Man came to the United States via the Brewster Family on the Mayflower.  His name misspelled as More.  Found it Genealogy of the Mann Family by Rev Joel Mann.
