The 1669 will of Thomas Broughall names his wife as
Anne and their children as Richard, Thomas, Edward, Christopher, Mary
and Margaret. He mentions an unnamed brother who had two sons, Walter
and William. Anne's will was proved in 1669. She names the same children
as Thomas and she was obviously his widow. However, she identifies her
husband as Robert. Was Robert the unnamed brother of Thomas? Her sons
Richard, Thomas and Robert are probably the Broughalls who left wills in
1707, 1710 and 1736. The William Broughill who left a 1677 will is
probably the son of Thomas' unnamed brother. Interestingly, the 1710
will of Thomas Braughill carries his Coat-of-Arms. It is a tree - same
as that used by the Boyle family. Other Coat-of-Arms are shown for Anne
Broughall (1699) and Thomas Broughall (1669).
