There were many Brutons in Ireland in the Meath, Westmeath, Dublin area. There is even a townland called Brutonstown in Westmeath. My question is where they were originally from and when they came to Ireland.
Many Brutons, including my great-great grandfather Hugh Bruton, came to New York City in the 1840s and 1850s. They are hard to trace because the name is so often misspelled but I have traced many of them.
If you have any information about the Irish branch of the Bruton family tree, I'd be grateful to hear it. Thanks.
