My gggrandparents, James Francis Brislawn (b. c.1811) and Anastasia Meagher came over to America in 1846. The spelling of the surname on the passenger list was Brisland. An 1850 census spelling was Brislon. My folks mentioned Enniscorthy, Monaseed, and Kilnahue Parish in County Wexford that the family came from. Three of James' brothers emigrated to America also- Matthew, Michael and Miles (born c.1820; wife Johanna Flynn). Their parents were Michael Brislawn (b c. 1776) and Betty Kelly possibly of Knocknagapple, Co. Wexford? Does this connect with your Andrew Breslin?
