  • Brunker from THE MEMOIRS OF Thomas C. BREAKEY

  • Breakey Memoirs

  • "Brunker, Brabaty 43
    The residence of Brabsty Brunker, Bellgreen Castle, Parish of Drumgoon, County Cavan, was being repaired the day prior to the windy night of 1839. A mason left his white jacket on the roof of said house through neglect. Next day it was found hanging on the belfry of Ballybay Church with letters and some small change in the pocket. Things were thought to have traveled before the wind that unfortunate night at a rate of 40 miles an hour, The roof was blown off Bellgreen Castle and the house shook to the foundation and never renovated.

    SOURCE: At the Ford of the Birches p275 in 1736 Brabazon BRUNKER m. Dorothy GAULT & had at least 3 sons and 1 daughter.
    NOTE: The one referred to in the Memoirs is probably a descendant."

    Brunkerd, Brabsty 12
    “In my grandfathers day but two houses of any note were in said village [ROCKCORRY]. A man called Brabsty BRUNKER lived in one of them that stood in the garden of the late GRAYHAM.”
    “Brabsty BRUNKER was a man who had a good standing in this county. He was over the Yeomen & took a responsible position in BALLYBAY the day of Jack LAWLESSes walk Father was speaking to him going that day. He was in military costume & mounted on a Government horse from the Garison at CHARLEYMOUNT.
