Re: Family History

Google Ask about Ireland and go into Griffith's valuations. Quite a number of Brown's in Clontibret that might assist you.

Re: Steen & Charlton Families

Can not help with the Steen or Charlton names, however I note mention of Oldcroft at Derryleedigan and Derryleedigan Jackson - any ideas on where they emigrated to?
Also, check out (http://www.Ask about Ireland.ie) and select Griffiths Valuation and the marked up maps for information.

Good Luck.
