The son of a clergyman of the same name, Nicholas Browne was born in County Fermanagh and studied in England before attending Trinity College Dublin. After his ordination he was rector of Timolin in the diocese of Leighlin. His two poems were republished by Matthew Concanen, who may have been a friend. D. J. O'Donoghue confuses him with his father.
The north-country-wedding, and The fire, two poems in blank verse. 1722.
