  • Notes 
    • Traditionally the Bronaugh's of Virginia are descendants of "Paul Bruneau, Sieur de la Chabrosiere, who was born in La Rochelle, France and was a grandson of Jean Brunseau, counselor, and eminent citizen whose family obtained patents of nobility in the middle of the 17th century.
      According to Miss Cora Bronaugh, a geneologist of the Bronaugh family, some of the Bronaughs were Huguenots who suffered from persecution in France. Bruse in his (Virginia in the Seventeenth Century}says: "Long before the persecutions of the French Huguenots had become so pitiless, a number of them had settled in Virginia and probably came from England and were English in spirit." Among them was a Paul Bruneau who was accompanied in his flight to America by his nephew Henri Bruneau. While in England they obtained letters of Naturalization on March 20, 1636, and changed the spelling of the name to Bronaugh. Paul and Henry Bronaugh were instrumental in building the first Presbyterian Church in South Carolina.
      The family was settled in the Rappahannock country in the last years of the seventeenth century, where the first known ancestor of the family of interest here was born.

      The first Bronaugh to be found in the Virginia records was David Bronaugh who purchased the land where the early Bronaugh homes were, in what is now called King George County, in the year 1671.
