Welcome to my One Name Study for the Brough surname. My family appears to have originated in Cumberland and having documented my direct line, I started to broaden my research into my extended family and other Brough families in Cumberland, to try and identify links between them. This led to working on Broughs in neighbouring counties and eventually all over the world.
While this study focuses on the main Brough surname and variants Brugh and Bruff, a number of other surnames including Bruch and Breaux evolved into Brough, mainly in the USA, so you will find these names and some other variants in the database.
My Brough data can also be found on Ancestry and a number of other family history sites
