This study focuses on the main Brough surname, though I have documented members from other families such as the Breux's from Quebec and the Bruch family from Germany, who emigrated to Pennsylvannia in 1736. Some members of this family changed their name to Brugh circa 1787 and finally to Brough around 1810.
Other recorded variants, which appear in my trees include Broghe, Broughe, Brouf, Bruff, and Broffe.
The data from my research is held in my One Name Study database on my website (http://brough.one-name.net/) and the data has also been posted on various commercial or public sites such as Ancestry, FamilySearch and GenesReunited. Always happy to make whatever data I have available to other researchers
