SCHEDULE 13G - TO BE INCLUDED IN STATEMENTS
FILED PURSUANT TO RULE 13d-1(c)

Pursuant to the instructions in Item 7 of Schedule 13G, Fidelity 
Management & Research Company ("Fidelity"), 82 Devonshire Street, 
Boston, Massachusetts 02109, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FMR Corp. and 
an investment adviser registered under Section 203 of the Investment 
Advisers Act of 1940, is the beneficial owner of 222,900 shares or 
1.629% of the common stock outstanding of Brown & Brown Incorporated 
("the Company") as a result of acting as investment adviser to various 
investment companies (the "funds") registered under Section 8 of the 
Investment Company Act of 1940.

Edward C. Johnson 3d, FMR Corp., through its control of Fidelity, 
and the funds collectively each has sole power to dispose of the 
222,900 shares owned by the Funds.

Neither FMR Corp. nor Edward C. Johnson 3d, Chairman of FMR 
Corp., has the sole power to vote or direct the voting of the shares 
owned directly by the funds, which power resides with the funds' Boards 
of Trustees.  Fidelity carries out the voting of the shares under 
written guidelines established by the funds' Boards of Trustees.

Fidelity Management Trust Company, 82 Devonshire Street, Boston, 
Massachusetts 02109, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FMR Corp. and a bank 
as defined in Section 3(a)(6) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, 
is the beneficial owner of 374,125 shares or 2.735% of the common stock 
outstanding of the Company as a result of its serving as investment 
manager of the institutional account(s). 

Edward C. Johnson 3d and FMR Corp., through its control of 
Fidelity Management Trust Company, each has sole dispositive power over 
374,125 shares and sole power to vote or to direct the voting of 
374,125 shares.

Strategic Advisers, Inc., 82 Devonshire Street, Boston, MA 02109, 
a wholly-owned subsidiary of FMR Corp. and an investment adviser 
registered under Section 203 of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, 
provides investment advisory services to individuals. It does not have 
sole power to vote or direct the voting of shares of certain securities 
held for clients and has sole dispositive power over such securities. 
As such, FMR Corp.'s beneficial ownership may include shares 
beneficially owned through Strategic Advisers, Inc.

Members of the Edward C. Johnson 3d family are the predominant 
owners of Class B shares of common stock of FMR Corp., representing 
approximately 49% of the voting power of FMR Corp.  Mr. Johnson 3d owns 
12.0% and Abigail Johnson owns 24.5% of the aggregate outstanding 
voting stock of FMR Corp.  Mr. Johnson 3d is Chairman of FMR Corp. and 
Abigail P. Johnson is a Director of FMR Corp.  The Johnson family group 
and all other Class B shareholders have entered into a shareholders' 
voting agreement under which all Class B shares will be voted in 
accordance with the majority vote of Class B shares.  Accordingly, 
through their ownership of voting common stock and the execution of the 
shareholders' voting agreement, members of the Johnson family may be 
deemed, under the Investment Company Act of 1940, to form a controlling 
group with respect to FMR Corp.

Fidelity International Limited, Pembroke Hall, 42 Crowlane, 
Hamilton, Bermuda, and various foreign-based subsidiaries provide 
investment advisory and management services to a number of non-U.S. 
investment companies and certain institutional investors.  Fidelity 
International Limited is the beneficial owner of 137,000 shares or 
1.001% of the common stock outstanding of the Company. Additional 
information with respect to the beneficial ownership of Fidelity 
International Limited is shown on Exhibit B.

FMR Corp. and Fidelity International Limited are of the view that 
they are not acting as a "group" for purposes of Section 13(d) under 
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "1934 Act") and that they are 
not otherwise required to attribute to each other the "beneficial 
ownership" of securities "beneficially owned" by the other corporation 
within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 promulgated under the 1934 Act.  
Therefore, they are of the view that the shares held by the other 
corporation need not be aggregated for purposes of Section 13(d).  
However, Fidelity International Limited is making this filing on a 
voluntary basis as if all of the shares are beneficially owned by FMR 
Corp. and Fidelity International Limited on a joint basis.

EXHIBIT to SCHEDULE 13G - TO BE INCLUDED IN STATEMENTS
FILED PURSUANT TO RULE 13d-1(c)

Pursuant to instructions in Item 7 of Schedule 13G, this Exhibit 
has been prepared to identify Fidelity International Limited, Pembroke 
Hall, 42 Crow Lane, Hamilton, Bermuda, a Bermudan joint stock company 
incorporated for an unlimited duration by private act of the Bermuda 
Legislature (FIL) and an investment adviser to various investment 
companies (the "International Funds") and certain institutional 
investors, as a beneficial owner of the 137,000 shares or 1.001% of the 
common stock outstanding of Brown & Brown Incorporated.

Prior to June 30, 1980, FIL was a majority-owned subsidiary of 
Fidelity Management & Research Company (Fidelity), a wholly-owned 
subsidiary of FMR Corp.  On that date, the shares of FIL held by 
Fidelity were distributed, as a dividend,  to the shareholders of FMR 
Corp.  FIL currently operates as an entity independent of FMR Corp. and 
Fidelity.  The International Funds and FIL's other clients, with the 
exception of Fidelity and an affiliated company of Fidelity, are non-
U.S. entities.

A partnership controlled by Edward C. Johnson 3d and members of 
his family owns shares of FIL voting stock with the right to cast 
approximately 39.89% of the total votes which may be cast by all 
holders of FIL voting stock.  Mr. Johnson 3d is Chairman of FMR Corp. 
and FIL.  FMR Corp. and FIL are separate and independent corporate 
entities, and their Boards of Directors are generally composed of 
different individuals.  Other than when one serves as a sub adviser to 
the other, their investment decisions are made independently, and their 
clients are generally different organizations.

FMR Corp. and Fidelity International Limited are of the view that 
they are not acting as a "group" for purposes of Section 13(d) under 
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "1934 Act") and that they are 
not otherwise required to attribute to each other the "beneficial 
ownership" of securities "beneficially owned" by the other corporation 
within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 promulgated under the 1934 Act.  
Therefore, they are of the view that the shares held by the other 
corporation need not be aggregated for purposes of Section 13(d).  
However, Fidelity International Limited is making this filing on a 
voluntary basis as if all of the shares are beneficially owned by FMR 
Corp. and Fidelity International Limited on a joint basis.

FIL has sole dispositive power over 137,000 shares owned by the 
International Funds. FIL has sole power to vote or direct the voting of 
137,000 shares of common stock held by the International Funds as 
reported above.
