Origins of surname
This name is of Irish origin, and is an Anglicised form of the Gaelic 'O'Broithe', the prefix 'O' denoting male descendant of 'Broth'.
The first baptism on record in Jersey is that of Edward son of Patrick and Catherine Graham in St Helier in 1831. The couple, who married two years earlier, came from Tipperary.
In 1835 John and Peter Brophy from Guernsey (it is not know if they were related) married Susan Blampied and Elizabeth Born, of Devon, respectively.
