BROHAN/BROHAM, William and Lucy

Surnames: Broughan, Brougham, Brohan, Broham
I am looking for any information on the Brohan/Broham clan. I think the spelling of their last name changed over the years and could be spelled Broughan or Brougham.
Our great great grandfather was James Brohan born 6-12-1820 and by the info we have they resided on the Fitzwilliam Estates in Ireland. We believe that Lucy came to Canada, Lanark, in about 1840 with the children.
The records show the baptism of 9 children of James and Lucy but in the 1839 rentals only seven children were show.
James married a Nancy Hughes here in Canada but we have no further information on the family. We have a Nancy Hughes that was married to a James Broughan but she was Church of England and he was Catholic.
Any info you have on this family would be greatly appreciated. You can e-mail me at
Thank you.
