Broughton Parish Records

-Still under construction-

Back to Broughton


From the book by Clifford Beebe.  I believe the research was by Diane Wilson of "The Gables" in Broughton.

These entries have been extracted from Broughton Parish Records.  I only have a transcript of baptisms from 1558 to 1684, marriages from 1570 to 1745, and burials from 1559 to 1747.  The oldest records are quite badly damaged on some pages and only fragments remain, some years are missing altogether.

Spelling tended to be very free in past times and the name Beeby has several variations (see Name Beebe). I have listed the entries exactly as they appear.  These are the only Beeby entries from these records and as there are no entries after 1640 and no burials at all, it seems likely that the family left the village.
