Browne Langrish was born in Hampshire and died at Basingstoke in that county on 29 November 1759. Educated as a surgeon, he became a licentiate of the College of Physicians in 1734. In the same year he became a Fellow of the Royal Society. He did not receive an MD until 1746, from St Andrews, after he was well established in the practice of medicine.
