My grandmother was Hilda Elizabeth Shepherd and I was born in Wellington Rural District.  I am fascinated by the fact that she had two aliases, Ellison and Broghan and was born in London - does anyone have any information?

Hello - my grandmother was also Hilda Elizabeth Shepherd - so you must be one one of my 3 siblings or 3 cousins!

Elizabeth Broffan was born in London! It is an extremely uncommon name.  It isn't Irish but may be Danish or just very rare and English.

Hi, I have discovered a Martha Broffan of Dawley, Shropshire who is my 6th Great grandmother. She married Thomas Garbett of Shropshire and had issue. I saw this question when I created Martha in my Wikitree family tree. I can't offer much else about her as I don't have many records other than the marriage record. Linking your Broffan's to my Broffan may be a difficult task but it may be the connection is very ancient and hence not easily traceable without many hours of digging. Best of luck.
