NOTE: I haven’t yet placed James BREAKEY jr. the father of this David BREAKEY aka BREACHY, but he would have been a descendant of the DeBREQUETs. One story is that they were Huguenots in the army of King William of Orange. Another story is that they were indeed in that army, but came from Scotland. A William BREAKEY and his three known sons settled as farmers near Ballybay, CO. Monaghan after the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 who became successful in the linen trade. For more, see: The Breakey Collection, a splendid site a hosted by Marilyn J. Breakey. William BREAKEY (1712-1760) is connected to my family through his marriage to Elizabeth BIRCH (1733-1812). Their daughter married Thomas BRADFORD (1739-1790) of Cavananore.
