In Reply to: Sebree name derivation to Seabrease by Richard Seabrease of 157

My research continues on the Seabrease name. I have found reference to facts which indicate the original name was "Sebray" or "Sebra" from a French origin. The French Hugenots were undergoing religious persecution during the late 1600s and moved into England and then to the James River area in Virginia. The group appear to have split with some heading west (probably into Kentucky) and some heading north onto Maryland's Eastern Shore. Tracing the Seabrease name shows it centered on the Maryland Eastern Shore and the very southern portion of Delaware. PLEASE, if you can add to this information e-mail me. Thank you.
