Looking for Brouard relatives that may be related to my ancestor Francis Broward (orig. Brouard) born 1755 in the Perch region of France. He left from Brest at 19 and lived in Georgetown, South Carolina. USA

Joanna, may have possible relations. Unsure, as we are having problems finding people in our own US. Have found many, many Brouards outside US-- some in France, Germany, Guernsey, and Haiti.

Saludos, Belisario.
Yo vivo en los Estados Unidos y desde hace cinco años estoy investigando la genealogía de mi esposo. El apellido de mi suegra era Brohard. Su primer antepasado en este país fue John Brohard, nacido en Alemania en 1762, pero algunos investigadores creen que la familia era de origen francés. En el estado de la Florida hay un condado llamado Broward, y otro llamado Brevard. Es posible que sean variaciones del mismo apellido, y tal vez haya otras formas de escribirlo porque en el siglo 19 los que tomaban el censo escribían los nombres como los oían. No tengo datos anteriores a John Brohard, pero si le interesa información sobre sus descendientes, yo puedo ayudarlo.

I apologize for my lack of Spanish. Did you say in your email that John Broward's fathr (Francis Broward) was from Alemina?
I have him born in France in 1755 and arriving in All Saints Parish- Georgetown South Carolina in 1762. He sailed from Brest, France but where is was from or if he was with family is unknown.I believe the speeling was Brouhars-- there are Brevards but I do not believe they re related. There are, however, some early documents where his name is spelled Brevard. This makes it confusing.
If you can write me in English I may have more understanding.
Thank you, Joanna

The message I wrote in Spanish was intended primarily for the man who wrote from Argentina. What I said was that my mother-in-law was a Brohard, a descendant of John Brohard, born in Germany in 1762. Some researchers believe that John Brohard's family may have originated in France. I also said that there are are two counties in Florida, Broward and Brevard, and that all those spellings may be variations of the same name (19th century Census takers wrote names as they heard them).
John Brohard came to the U.S. as a child. I don't know who his parents were, but I have information on his descendants (West Virginia to Ohio to Florida) that I am willing to share. If your Brouard ancestors migrated from France to South Carolina in 1762, they may have been related to John Brohard who migrated to Virginia from Holland, but that connection would have to be researched in Europe, a task that I cannot undertake.

Although much time has passed since you posted your message about Francis Broward, I just ran across it while doing some family reasearch. I am Dorothy Parker, daughter of Byron Broward Parker, son of Margaret Floride Broward Parker, daughter of Montgomery Layfette Broward and Elizabeth (Lizzy) Broward, son of Col. John Broward (1795-1865)and Margaret Tucker, son of Francis Broward (1755 Perche Provence, France) and Sarah Rebecca Bell Broward. So I believe he would be my Great, Great, Great Grandfather. I live on Broward Road on family property that has been owned since the 1860 land grant. Would love to hear your question. DPG

Hi Dorothy! I'm Jacquelin, William Bennett's wife,from Charleston--we met at Aunt Audrey's funeral, and Opal's funeral.
You are such an expert on the Broward family. I am trying to find out about Rebecca Sarah Bell. I feel sure she must be from Virginia. I see where she might have descended from the Lees in Virginia, but then again, I think ancestry.com can have false info.
It's been great fun to see all the inter-marrying of the Browards. I have to keep the chart in front of me to keep it straight. We come from Florence Vivian (Wright) Broward--she comes from Browards whose Broward connection goes up through both of her parents.
So, do you know more about the Tuckers, the Eubanks and Rebecca Sarah Bell?
Look forward to hearing from you.
