1790 US Census
In the 1790 U.S. census the only Brennen I could find is listed as a store or company with the name of ``Dollaghan and Brennen''. This building was in St. Phillip's and St. Michael's Parish, Charlestown District, South Carolina. It is listed as housing two adult males, presumably the proprietors, and one female.
