Browne born India I think Geoff. Or that tree got it wrong. Perhaps both born in Dorset.

Ok it helps to check a few things.

Catherine is a widow. So marriage Catherine Browne to a Dawson.

Thanks Geoff.

Census has Mary and Catherine born Dorset.

Mary possibly married in India.

One may have died and another born and named with addition of Alexander.
