    • Anne Browne was Adam III's second wife, after Alice Still of Grantham, County Lincolnshire, England, daughter of William Still. Alice died in childbirth in 1577.
    • "John, the only sonne of Adam Winthrop and Anne his wife, was borne in Edwardston abovesaid on Thursday about 5 of the clocke in the morning the 12 daie of January anno 1587 in the 30 yere of the reigne of Qu: Eliza:"

      So, exactly, reads his birth-record, - a smiling one, plainly,?as his father set it down in his private diary a little more than three hundred years ago. The date is expressed after the rule of the Old Style; now it would be Jan. 22, 1588. Win the year preceding the fated Queen of Scots had laid her fair head upon the block. The last night of the July following saw the signal-fires flaming all up the coast that announced the arrival of the Armada in the Channel. The child was born away from home, under the roof, probably, of his maternal grandparents. Adam Winthrop lived at Groton, contiguous to Edwardston, in the lower part of Suffolk, sixty miles northeast of London; was lord of Groton Manor, an estate granted to his father - also named Adam, as was his father before him - by Henry VIII, at the dissolution of the monasteries.
