Broughs of Lancashire, England
there are several well-known "Brough" named villages and towns
in England and Scotland, none are located in the county of Lancashire,
England. However, there have been a number of "Brough" families
who have resided in Lancashire since the 1700's, although most of these
families appear to have originated in other counties--such as Cheshire,
Staffordshire and Yorkshire.
Another "Brough" family who lived in Lancashire was that John Brough and Alice Greenhalgh, who were marred on 25 December 1823 in Bury, Lancashire, and who had five children: Jane (b.1825), Jonathan (b.1827), John (chr.1829), Anne (chr.1832), and Israel (b.1837). Interestingly, their second son and third child, John Brough, was christened on 20 September 1829 at St. Mary, Birch, Hopwood, Lancashire. Unfortunately, the church of St. Mary, Birch, no longer exists, but can be seen in the following pictures.
