Hi Breagys!

Here's some more:

Gerald Breagy, b. Dec. 12, 1792 to Richard Breagy and Rose Reilly, Drogheda. Val and Mary Reilly winesses.

John Breagy, b. June 8, 1764 to Richard Breagy and Eleanor Ward, Drogheda. John Breagy and Monica Evers witnesses. Must have Died Young - see following.

John Breagy, b. Nov. 9, 1767 to same parents, same place. Thomas Magrane and Mary Reynolds witnesses.

Richard Breagy, b. Jan 18, 1800 to Nicholas Breagy and Caty (Catherine?) McKone, Mellickstown, Ardee, Louth. John Barrett and Ann Daly witnesses.

Robert Breagy, b. Jan 14, 1800 to Peter Breagy and Mary McDonnell, Ardee, Ardee, Louth. John McParland (likely Armagh, Louth) and Ally (Allison?) Caulan (likely Louth, possibly Meath around 1786) witnesses.

An Owen Bray is the closest I can come to an ancestor of mine named Owen Breagy - it may be an interpretive spelling or misspelling - but the dates sure fit as do the witnesses' names (Maginnis appears more often than purely coincidental in Breagy and other realted family's records I have). So you all might be sure to try Bray as a source for further Breagy - just a thought.

So -
Owen Bray was of Castletown, Kilpatrick, Meath, b. Jan 29, 1816. Witnesses were Brian and Catherine Maginnis.

For instance, I know Owen Breagy married Mary Dulaghan whose bapt. witnesses were Owen Keelan and Mary Maginnis. While a Nicholas Breagy married a Catherine McGin in 1794, and my great-great grandfather John FG married Owen Breagy's daughter Eliza Jane in 1864 - witnesses in cluded a Christian Maginn.
The name associationship is clearly of interest.

that is why I think Bray may be worth a look. yet, the "Bray" angle is only a thought.

Take care kinsfolk.
