What part of Wales, Kieran?.
Brees, Breese and Breeze are Montgomeryshire,
Wales names. The name comes from 'Ap Rhys' meaning 'the son of Rhys'. The Church of England clergy wrote it in the parish records as as written above.
By the way ,sorry about you losing to France,-and thanks a lot for Graham Henry!.
