Re: the name breese

In Reply to: the name breese by david breese of 637

David:

From what I've seen, the name Brees (Breese, Breeze, Brice, etc.) were derived from the Welch term "ab Rees" meaning in this case "son of Rees". Breese/ze is apparently a familiar surname on the South Wales border.

What's a gadfly?

Jon
