BROUGHTON MANOR - VCH Buckingham Vol 4, p. 303
The ownership in fee was obtained by a family which took its name from the place, and a Robert de Broughton and William his son are mentioned as lords of Broughton in a confirmatory charter of 1151-4. Reference to a later William, probably son of the last-named William, occurs in 1211. He had been succeeded by 1245 by his son Robert, whose son Matthew was in possession in 1276. By 1284 the property had passed to his son Ralf, who was still alive in 1302. In 1306 Ralf de Broughton the younger, probably his son, and Joan his wife demised to Robert son of the late Ralf de Mangehoo of Marston Moretaine (Bedfordshire), for 20 marks sterling and 2 marks yearly, a good and suitable chamber for him to live in in their court in the vill of Broughton, maintenance in food and drink, and the maintenance of a horse in hay and grass. Ralf de Broughton died before 1316, when his widow Joan held alone in Broughton. His son Robert levied a fine of lands in the neighbouring parish of Milton Keynes and with his wife Paulina dealt with lands in Crawley in 1327. He is mentioned in connexion with Broughton in 1331. Three years later he conveyed the reversion of this property, now called BROUGHTON MANOR, after the death of Joan, at that time wife of William Passelewe of Wavendon, to Philip Aylesbury for life, and then to his son Thomas in tail-male. In 1338 Philip Aylesbury acquired Joan Passelewe's life interest in return for a yearly rent of 10 silver marks.

NOTE: The above entry for Broughton Manor indicates that the Broughton family had nothing to do with it after 1338. It fairly well agrees with my files, except that Paulina is wife of Robert's son John rather than Robert's wife.
