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).
