I also note that Bosworth-Toller's dictionary has been used in the
past for documentation.

Also note, from the 01/97 LoAR Leofleor Seó Reod. R- Caid:

The byname needs only a little work. First, seo is the definite
article; it should not be capitalized, and the accent, a modern
editorial indication of vowel length, should be dropped. (It is in any
case misplaced, the diphthong actually being éo.) Clark Hall does give
réod `red', but réad is more usual and the ancestor of modern red. The
adjective is in the weak declension after the definite article: seo
Reode or seo Reade, of which the latter is apparently more likely.

So that right there seems to indicate that, so long as the spelling of
the Anglo-Saxon Brown is correct, Laurel should allow registration of
this descriptive byname.

Andrewe, not a Anglo-Saxon expert, but I did sleep at a holiday inn
express last night!
