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.. Click here for more information about International Brough Family Reunions.

   A) The activities and pursuits of this corporation shall be guided by and be consistent with the principles of religious belief of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and particularly as such religious teachings embrace and direct genealogical research and family history activities.
   B) The corporation shall engage in genealogical and historical research throughout the world in behalf of the ancestors, descendants and relatives of the Broughs of the British Isles--with specific emphasis on the ancestors, descendants and relatives of Richard Brough and Mary Horleston of Staffordshire, England. (Richard Brough was born in Staffordshire, England, on 14 February 1786; he married Mary Horleston on 7 August 1825; and he died in Staffordshire, England on 31 January 1873.)

   The corporation shall have members.

Article VI: Meetings
   An annual meeting of the Board of Trustees will be held as determined by the President of the Board of Trustees. A By-Decadal Family Reunion (for all members of the organizations) will be held as determined by the President of the Board of Trustees. Other specific meetings of various operating divisions within the Board of Trustees can be held at any time as determined appropriate by the President of the Board of Trustees.
   The main purposes of the annual meeting will be to inform the Board of Trustees of the accomplishments during the past year of the purposes of the corporation, as well as to elect Trustees and Officers of the Board of Trustees. Failure to hold an annual meeting--or other meetings and reunions-- will not disorganize this organization. In the event a meeting or election is not held the elected Trustees will remain in their offices until such time that a meeting and election can take place.

   A Trustee may be nominated and voted into office by a majority of the Board of Trustees at their annual meeting or on other occasions as agreed upon by the majority of the Board of Trustees, or by the general membership of the corporation at their By-Decadal Family Reunion. A Trustee can be removed by the majority vote of the remaining Trustees, or can be removed if he or she is deemed inactive (such as by not attending annual meetings, reunions or participating in organizational activities or projects) for more than three years by the President or the majority vote of the remaining Trustees. Also, the President of the organization shall have the right to appoint a new member of the Board of Trustees should a vacancy occur between annual meetings or By-Decadal Family Reunions. However, this new member of the Board of Trustees must be voted into office by a majority of the Board of Trustees at their first annual meeting or By-Decadal Family Reunion following such an appointment by the President or the appointment is nullified.

Article VIII: Executive Officers
   The Executive Officers of the corporation must be descendants of Richard Brough of Staffordshire, England (mentioned above).
