    Seeking any information about these surnames which date from the very end of 17th century in my family tree with former variation more prevalent. Brass men appear to be farmers in Arklow parish but with connections to the Aris and Revell families in the parishes of Newcastle and Delgany much further to the north of the county? Family lore has it that we descend from Huguenots and I noticed the name of De Brasselay on the wall plaque in the Huguenot cemetery on Merrion Row recently – does anyone have any evidence connecting this name to later Brass or Brassey families?
