McMULLEN FAMILY Co Down and Antrim
« on: Tuesday 20 April 21 11:54 BST (UK) »
I have discovered a birth of James McMullen, 30 Jan 1831, the record shows Brookfield, Drummuire. I also found that Drummuire became Randalstown but I can't find where Brookfield was/is.  Later the family moved into Belfast and some of the later children's births were recorded in St Patrick's, Belfast City.
Parents were Patrick McMullen, Flax Dealer and Sara Walsh.  I'd like to find out where they actually lived or any other information on the family.
Any insights would be appreciated.

Drummuire is, I am fairly sure, Drummaul. Certainly thatís the parish where James' baptism is recorded. Drummaul still exists. Itís the parish around Randalstown, Co. Antrim. No idea where Brookfield is. The name doesnít appear to be in use in the area today.

Mention of Brookfield here (Bryce Smith) is it the same place?

Thank you heywood.  Its a possibility but it looks a long way from Drummaul.

Patrick was a Flax Dealer - maybe this is the connection

Just a note to close this down - I found that Brookfield was in Antrim and that the family moved back to Belfast.
Thanks for help
