Families covered: Broughton of Toddington

The lower section of this page was originally produced within a Temporary page on 21.06.05. It was moved here when the top section was added. Visitation starts with the following Sir Rowland, providing the following note about him which should perhaps not be taken too seriously: "This Sir Rowland Broughton, Knight, came oute of Denmarke with Kings Aldidus in the yere of our Lord God 633. He built the towne of Broughton, and was called Baron of Broughton." If this pedigree is to be taken seriously, something we do not suggest, then (by working back along the generations from the John of Toddington who married Elizabeth Stonham) it is likely that Sir Rowland lived in the 12th century.
