BFO History and Officers, 1918-Present

In December 1890, Samuel Richard Brough (1857-1947) returned to Utah after serving a four-year LDS Mission to the British Isles. After returning to Utah, Samuel encouraged his Brough relatives living in the western United States to begin holding Brough Family Reunions. The "Brough Family Organization" was formally organized in 1918, with Samuel Richard Brough serving as its first president from 1918 to 1938. Between 1918 and 1968, Brough Family Reunions were held in such places as Bountiful, Kaysville, Lagoon, Morgan, Porterville, Ogden, and Randolph, Utah, and in Lyman, Wyoming.

In 1969, Hyrum C. Brough, a son of Samuel Richard Brough, founded the Samuel Richard Brough Family Organization (SRBFO). From 1979 to 1982, the SRBFO operated alongside the Brough Family Organization-which was incorporated in 1979 in Utah as the Richard Brough Family Organization (RBFO) and approved in 1979 as a non-profit organization by the IRS. In 1983, the SRBFO was fully merged into the RBFO (and the SRBFO's existence as a separate corporation was allowed to expire in 2005). From 1969 to 1999, most Brough Family Reunions were held in Bountiful, Utah. Since 2000, most Brough Family Reunions have been held in Kaysville, Utah. In February 2011, the RBFO changed its on-line identity to the Brough Family Organization (BFO).

Today, the Brough Family Organization holds International Brough Reunions and sponsors special reunions and research projects as needed.
