There is this early latin memorial inscription to a John Wroughton:
"In the chancel; in brass on a flatt marble, thus:
'Hic jacet Johes Wrofton Armiger qui obiit xbi die Aprilis Anno Dni MCCCCXXIX. Cuius aie ppicietur Dues.Amen'
This may be the son of the William Wrofton/Wroughton mentioned that built the house and started the Family of Wroughton that was to remain in Broad Hinton for two hundred years.
I am going out on a limb (of the family tree) here, but I feel that it is at least possible that this the line to which our Virginia immigrant, Isaias/Ezekiah [W]Roughton of Jamestown is attached.
Comments by Wroughton researchers welcome.
