No links. I've seen a few othe Bruffeys in 1860 - 1900 census listings who were immigrants, always from Ireland,none were living near Va or WVa originating Bruffeys, so if a family connection, no one apparently knew of it. Found nothing in English, Scottish or Irish records available online as of a year or so ago. (I've since dropped the subscription). Of course, there's lots of musty parish and tax records in Ireland that might yield clues. no Rrenc connection found either, although the Huguenot ancestry hs come up in recollections or speculations several times.
