Reunion 2011:

The date has finally been set! Despite numerous stumbling blocks, and a couple of date and venue changes, the 2011 Coubrough & Cowbrough reunion is a go. It will be held the Civic Holiday weekend 30 July - 1 August, 2011, in the Springbrook room of the Hampton Inn, in Red Deer, Alberta. More information here.

We all know that the Coubrough tribe has been in central Scotland for at least the last 500 years. We also know that they have since spread all over the globe. Most of the descendants of those emigrants have come to believe that, outside of a few shadowy cousins in Scotland, they were the only people in the whole world with their Coubrough or Cowbrough surname. Of course, we were all vastly mistaken.

The main premise of the research behind this site is that, in spite of more than 50 spellings of the surname and the various migrations of tribal members, all those of us who bear the Coubrough and Cowbrough surnames are related somewhere in the misty past. I have long thought that it would be wonderful if I could collect up all the Coubroughs I could find in the world and bring them to one place for a party. In August 2001, I did exactly that. We had 49 people from 4 different countries - all of whom were astounded to find so many other people with their own name who lived in so many other places.

The success of the first ever Coubrough/Cowbrough International Family Reunion engendered encores held April 19-20, 2003, in Katikati, New Zealand, August 8 - 10, 2005, in Stirling, Stirling, Scotland, and August 3 - 5, 2007, in Troy, Michigan, USA. (The 2009 edition was cancelled due to technical difficulties.) Click the links below to read all about them. If you missed these first three, another is scheduled for the summer of 2011, in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, and there are plans in the works for more to come. Watch here for news.
