    • Robert brough Obituary
      26th June 1860 R. B. Brough died, at the age of thirty-two, at Manchester, .
      Robert B. Brough was born in London, April 10th, 1828, went to Manchester in 1843, and in 1847 conducted a very bright periodical, called The Liverpool Lion, which he enlivened both with his pen and pencil for many a year. His first dramatic work was a burlesque, called The Enchanted Isle, written in collaboration with his brother William, and was brought out at the Amphitheatre, and was soon reproduced at the Adelphi in London. He married Miss E. Romer in 1851. He became well known as a contributor to all sorts of periodicals. Among them may be mentioned The Man in the Moon, Diogenes, The Comic Times, The Welcome Guest, Train, and National Magazine. Some of his poems bear the stamp of genius. He wrote two novels, "Marston Lynch " and " Which is Which?" and a remarkable set of Radical poems, called " Songs of the Governing Classes," and he was the author of several burlesques. He was no mean actor. His health completely broke down, and he was on his journey to Wales to recruit it, when he was taken ill at Manchester, where he died of atrophy, and left a widow and three young children, one of whom, Miss Fanny Brough (Mrs. Boleyn), is one of the brightest ornaments of the modern stage. He was loved by all who knew him, and was the most generous of men.
