Bryan McDonnell

(Lt.) Bryan McDonnell [i], son of Alexander  & Marcella (Archbold) McDonnell , b. 11 Nov [ii]1645, Arklow, County Wicklow, Ireland[iii]; d. 11 Nov 1707, Mill Creek, New Castle Co., Delaware; m. 1665, Ireland to Mary Doyle, daughter of John Doyle , of Arklow, in the county of Wicklow b. 1647, Arklow, County Wicklow, Ireland; d. 1709, Mill Creek, New Castle Co., Delaware.

Bryan MacDonnell 's Will dated March 19, 17 07 Mill Creek Hundred, New Castle , Delaware [iv].

Bryan   MacDonnell served as a Lieutenant in Colonel Francis Toole 's regiment of foot, (an Irish volunteer regiment) in the cause of King James II of England . It seems as though King James II was quite tolerant of the Presbyterians and believed that they should be treated equally with the Catholics. Originally there were Presbyterian Officers and members in his army[v].

When James went into exile in France he appointed a Lord Deputy, Richard Talbot , earl of Tyrconnell, his brother-in-law, to manage his army in Ireland . He instructed Richard Talbot to treat the Presbyterians and Catholics in the army equally. Talbot saw fit to ignore this request and began to purge the army of Protestants in the following year. Englishmen were turned out of the Army, Protestant regiments were disbanded, and Roman Catholic Irishmen took their place. It was openly stated that Talbot 's purpose was to destroy all Protestantism in the country, and to restore the old faith. It took only eighteen months and by the time James arrived back in Ireland , Talbot had removed 4000 Protestants from the army, including 400 officers. He had increased the Catholic soldiers from 1000 to 5000 by the end of 1686. It might appear that Bryan , Alexander 's son might have been purged from the James Army at this time.  Bryan (or Brian ) MacDonald and his family settled near New Castle , Delaware , after arriving in this country in 1685. Coming with him was his wife Mary and 3 sons, John , William and James . He had 4 more children after arriving in America . They were Bryan , Jr. , Mary , Richard , and Anabel[vi].

He engaged in the Tanning trade while in Ireland .  He was the first to use MacDonald .  Bryan & Mary McDonnell  immigrated to America in 1689 and settled in Delaware .

Bryan came to New Castle , Delaware and bought 693 acres of land from William Penn on November 18, 16 89. I am told that the land is just outside Wilmington , DE , occupied now by some housing and a park-- Brandywine Springs Park- . The land is bordered by Red Clay Creek and Hyde Run, both of which can be found on a New Castle County Map[vii].
