BROWNLEE

Elizabeth Brownlee married Ezekiel Currey in 1759. We have no record of Elizabeth’s family although we believe that her son Robert Brownlee Currey was named after his maternal grandfather. There were Brownlees (also spelled Brownley and Brimley) in Scotland in Torfoot, Lanarkshire. There are further records of Brownlees in Northern Ireland around Belfast. It was from Belfast that a number of them came to the colonies to escape religious and ethnic persecution. A number went south to Charleston. Like the Currey family, they were Scotch- Irish or Ulster Scots and Presbyterians. Most of the American Scots married other Scots because they spoke the same dialects and went to the same church and were used to the hard life of the Scotch immigrants, starting from scratch, often in hostile territory. 

OWEN

Jane Grey Owen married Robert Brownlee Currey.

 The Owen Genealogy follows:

Howell Ap Goronwy was born in Dafarn Goch, LLanfairmathafarneithaf, Wales. His son was named William Ap Howell Ap Goronwy and his grandson was Goronwy Ap William Ap Howel Ap Goronwy. (The Ap stands for “son of” and to include the line of descendants, you took the names of all your line. The family has been traced either correctly or incorrectly to about 1100 in Wales.)

Owen Goronwy I and his son Goronwy  Owen II were the next in line  with the younger Owen marrying Margaret Humphreys of Llanallgo, Anglesey, Wales.
