|About The Mellor/Brough/Brown/Capewell and related Families
This site is actually more about the Brown / Brough family. Both my late parents, unbeknown to

Brough, in particular, has an extensive recorded ancestry and it is through Sarah, my 'double'
Great, Great, Great, Great Grandmother, that I have been able to trace the line back to medieval
times and beyond.
Dukes and Earls, Generals and Politicians - even Her Majesty the Queen, along with deaths in
battle, medieval executions and, more recently, two hangings at Stafford prison. On a
sportier theme there is an International Footballer in Stoke-on-Trent. No-one can claim that we are
a dull lot!

his help and encouragement with the Brown family from the very start. Also thanks to the Richard
Brough Family Organization of Utah for their database which has proven to be such a valuable
The information has been compiled in good faith but, especially as the 'tree' has grown so much in
size, there may be the odd mistake - if so, my apologies!
