Allred Ancestry

Research Project

The Allred Ancestry Research Project (AARP) was started in 2016 by genealogists of the Brough Family Organization (BFO). The Brough Family Organization is a large ancestral family organization that has genealogical ties to the early Allred families of Utah.

There are a number of relationships between members of the Allred and Brough families. Here are just four of them: 1) In 1878, James Anderson Allred (1819-1904) of Bedford Co., Tennessee, married Elizabeth Ann Brough (1861-1944) of Spring City, Utah, in Salt Lake City, Utah; 2) In 1904, Cyrus Edward Allred (1881-1969) of Spring City, Utah, married Grace Brough (1879-1968) of Spring City, Utah, in Manti, Utah; 3) In 1905, Edna Allred (1882-1943) of Spring City, Utah, married Raymond Gilbert Brough (1881-1971) of Spring City, Utah, in Manti, Utah; and 4) In 1944, Arlin Richard Allred Jr. (1921-1978) of Logan Utah, married Ethel Brough (1926-1976) of Green River, Wyoming, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Most of the descendants of these couples now live in the western United States.

In early 2016 the Research Committee of the Brough Family Organization (BFO) received a request from related Brough and Allred family members to research, document and publish related Allred-surnamed individuals listed in the parish records of Eccles, Lancashire, England, who were christened, married and/or buried in Eccles from 1564 to 1700.

This BFO research project eventually resulted in the production of a publication entitled The Allred's of Eccles, Lancashire, England, From the 1500's to 1700. Today the genealogical information contained within this publication is available as a seperate database. This publication lists the ancestors of Solomon Alred (Allred) as follows:

John Alrede (b.abt.1500), listed in a 1526 tax record; of Eccles, Lancashire, England.

William Alred (b.abt.1525), married his second wife in 1567 in Eccles, Lancashire, England.

Johanes Alred (b.abt.1548-d.1594) , buried in 1594 in Eccles, Lancashire, England;

John Alred (the Elder, 1571-1633), christened and buried in Eccles, Lancashire, England; married Anne Taylor.

William Alred (1594-1661), christened and buried in Eccles, Lancashire, England; married Alicia Tonge.
