I am a new member researching the BROUGHALL family in Myddle and surrounding areas in the eighteenth century and in Marylebone and Hertfordshire in the nineteenth century. Has any research been done on the Seating Plan of 1744 for St Peters Church in Myddle?

Can't answer your query on the church seating plan I'm afraid.

Does "Myddle and the surrounding areas" extend to St Martins and/or Whittington? If so, I have researched the BROUGHALL descendants of Thomas BIRCH and Mary ATCHERLEY, whose daughter Elizabeth BIRCH married William BROUGHALL at Baschurch in 1785.

Hello

There is of course a famous History of Myddle by Richard Gough which was based on the seating plan in the church but that was written in 1700, some forty years before your family were there and as far as I can see the BROUGHALL family are not mentioned at that date so I can only assume your family moved to Myddle between 1700 and 1744.

Where have you found the reference to the 1744 seating plan?

I note there are quite a lot of entries for BROUGHALL in the Myddle register. By the way you will find it spelt Middle in earlier years.

Thank you Steve and Mike for your information. I am currently reading Richard Gough's book and have come across the earlier spelling for Myddle. I have found christenings in Myddle for children of William and Elizabeth BROUGHALL from 1727 but haven't found their marriage. I am descended from one of these children (Thomas). There is a christening of a William BROUGHALL in 1699 in Petton (parents Joyn and Anne) but I need to research further. The 1744 seating plan for Myddle church and one for 1810 is on the parish of Myddle website and a separate section a History of Myddle and Parish Appendix 17 and appendix 18. The original 1744 plan is in the parish chest. The seating plan for Myddle church for 1810 has the name of Richard ATCHERLEY written in 7 of the pews. The plan for 1744 has William BROUGHALL written in several pews. My ancestor Thomas BROUGHALL was Christened in Myddle in 1743 and was married by licence to Mary EVANS in Shrewsbury in 1763 and he was from Newton. His father was stated as William and a witness was John (brother of Thomas). The children of Thomas and Mary were christened in Myddle. There is a headstone in Myddle churchyard to a William BROUGHALL of Newton who died in 1768 and to his wife Elizabeth who died in 1781.

A William "BROUNGHALL" (almost certainly BROUGHALL) married an Elizabeth Green WOLLERS at Alberbury on 28 Nov 1719, see FamilySearch. The Shropshire Marriage Index shows that William was of Baschurch and Elizabeth was of Alberbury. The problem with that record is the gap between the marriage and the baptism of Elizabeth BROUGHALL at Myddle on 18 Nov 1726 or 1727. There are some BROUGHALL baptisms elsewhere in Shropshire which might "fill the gap" but whether they could be attributed to William and Elizabeth (and specifically to your William and Elizabeth, as there may have been another couple with those names) with any certainty is another matter.

Have you checked out the Broyhill Family History website? Lots of BROUGHALL parish register data etc there; see: http://broyhill.org/downloads/parish.htm

Hi Steve

I have a letter that a member of the Broyhill family wrote to my father (he was a Broughall) about his family history but my father wasn't interested in family history. I do have a printout of parish register information that I refer to first of all.

Thank you for your other suggestions on the BROUGHALL family.

Have come across the family in Whittington a few times with marriages into the Wards of Blodwel Hall and Maesbrook.

Does anyone know where records are held for wills in 1768 in the Shrewsbury area? I am looking for one for William BROUGHALL.

Hello Jean

Wills, prior to 1858, for north Shropshire (roughly Shrewsbury and northwards being part of the area covered by the Diocese of Lichfield) are at Lichfield Record Office with some microform copies at Shropshire Archives but you would need to check the coverage of these.

There are also a few in the PCC wills:

Which are also available on The Genealogist on a subscription basis as opposed to pay-per-view:

If I am correct administrations are not included and are only available at TNA and probably on microfiche from the LDS. Though there is an index to some early administation on Ancestry.
