Re: Edward Broaddus and Thomas Broadhurst

In Reply to: Re: Edward Broaddus and Thomas Broadhurst by Ed Broadus of 750

Ed,
It reads:The name Broaddus is a contraction of Broadhurst and corresponds to Whitehurst, Deerhurst, Penhurst and many other kindred names, the hurst denoting a knoll or wooded hill.
The family is of Anglo-Saxon origin and for centuries has been prominent in British life, having given to the Empire many statesmen, among whom may be mentioned Henry Broadhurst, a member of Gladstones government and for many years a member of Parliment. The family name in America is written by a few with one "d" but by the majority with two.
Elaine
