Brookes in Abercorn

Post by AnneC656 » Sat Jun 10, 2017 9:36 am

I am trying to track back from Brookes ancestors from Ryelands, Raymoghy, in Donegal, Ireland. They were on the Abercorn estate, but I don't know when they went to Donegal (possibly mid 1700s) or where they came from. In Scotlands people I see they have been Brookes families in Abercorn, West Lothian. Doe anyone have any ideas on this? Thank you

Hi Ann

Had a very quick look at the census on Ancestry and Findmypast and only see one born in Ireland living in Abercorn, John Brooks farm servant age 23 (1881 census).

Do you have any more info, first names would help, perhaps they lived in Abercorn between census but still in the area.
