Randles and Brough families of Newcastle-under-Lyme
« on: Monday 05 March 18 20:47 GMT (UK) »
Has anyone knowledge of Thomas Randles of Newcastle-under-Lyme
who was born into a poor family c. 1840 and became Mayor of the town. He married Sarah Brough the daughter of a prosperous Brick manufacturer from Trentham. Doubtless that helped him considerably to rise in status. I have been asked if Randles took on a coat of arms with a boar on a plate. Is there any evidence of that?
Is anyone aware of a connection between the Brough family of Staffordshire and the de Burgh ancient family?
