In the 1830's several Brabs / Brab / Brabb / Brabbs family lines emigrated to USA and are extensively documented thereafter. But the earliest records of the Brabs / Brab / Brabb / Brabbs family appear in the Bubwith about 1630 -- only a generation before Anne's birth. Solid info + relationships are difficult to secure. Any information about Anne Brabs, her ancestors, parents, siblings, other children (if any), descendants or relatives will be gratefully received.
