I am a mcbrien born in enniskillen but now living further afield, i cannot give you any precise details eg dob`s but my branch of mcbriens all stems from derrygonnely at arrround the time you suggest, (many are burried in an abandoned graveyard just on the outskirts of derrygonnelly)
I have very little knowledge of them but can tell you that they were primarilly land owners and farmers and the furthest generation back probably 5th or 6th that i know was called Amos.
so in summary a place to contact would be the church of ireland in derrygonnelly, if you have trouble finding a contact there i am sure that the clocher diosces wolud be able to help. I cant find the new bishops name but his right hand man is archdeacon cecil pringle (a good guy)
good luck with your search
