Biographical information

William Broadfoot, born late 1600s or early 1700s probably Scotland or Ireland d. possibly Cruggleton, and probably Galloway, Scotland, married Mary M. Kirtie. The parish church at Cruggleton contained the records found by the Broadfoot cousins (these Broadfoots have since died). The name was first Braefute which became Braidfute and Braidfoot -- Braid being the spelling for Broad and fute being the spelling for foot. In the motto, the (home) hill (brae) is broad enough to encompass all of the family. The brae (hill in Scots) is braid (broad) in Scots. The Brae is Braid -- Brae is Broad.
