Thomas Browne married Mary Turland on 6 August 1827 at Wollaston Parish church. Both Thomas and Mary were 'of this parish', both signed their names. Witnesses were Anthony Warner(signed), Elizabeth Rose (mark)

Northamptonshire Record Office, Wollaston Marriage Register 1813-1837 PR3698/10  image (41) viewed Ancestry.co.uk: Northamptonshire Church of England Parish Registers

(These are the parents of Newman who was baptised  in May 1839 as plain Newman so obviously decided to adopt his mother's surname later. )

Fantastic! Thank you Barry. I'm new to this game and it's taking some time to understand how to navigate the systems but I'll get the hang of it, esp with help like this. Have also joined FindMyPast, also good but there's nothing like personal interest/word of mouth to get things moving.

I agree that is really neat to see coupled with a more common surname, I'd be thrilled to find that!

I get 471 'hits' for Browns in Northamptonshire that had Turland as either their first or middle name.
I'd look for family groups in the censuses 1841 to 1911, and try and figure-out where 'my' person fitted in, then look for parish, birth, marriage and death details, and go from there.
