Miciaih Browning ( - 1689):
Miciaih Browning, born in Derry, was a hero of the Siege of 1689. He is remembered for driving his vessel, the Mountjoy, through a boom placed across the River Foyle thus bringing supplies to the beleaguered city and thwarting the Siege. He was shot dead before the boat reached Derry quay. It is said that Robert Browning, the poet was interested in a possible genealogical link with Miciaih's family and that this link is now established.
