Description

Excerpt from The Complete Poetic and Dramatic Works of Robert Browning Ir one sought to build any genealogical structure to account for Robert Browning's genius, he would find but slight foundation in fact, though what he found would be substantial so far as it went. Browning's father was a bank clerk in London; his father again was a bank clerk. Both of these Brownings were christened Robert. The father of the poet's grandfather was Thomas Browning, an innkeeper and small proprietor in Dorsetshire, and his stock apparently was west country English. Browning himself liked to believe that an earlier ancestor was a certain Captain Micaiah Browning who raised the siege of Derry in 1689 by an act of personal bravery which cost him his life. It is most to the point that Browning was London born with two generations of city Londonenbehind him. His mother was Sarah Anne a name which became Sarianna in the poet's aister Wiedemann, the Scottish daughter Of a Hamburg German, a shipowner in Dundee.
