Brownhill is a 125-acre townland within Leckpatrick parish in north Co. Tyrone. Located in a remote area of the parish, Brownhill belonged to the Manor of Cloghogall within the extensive Abercorn Estate. A Roman Catholic chapel was erected here in the 1790s. The Abercorn Papers form a very large collection in PRONI, Belfast, which includes title deeds, rentals, leases and correspondence relating to the Tyrone and Donegal estates, some commencing in the early seventeenth century. The following data has been extracted from LDS microfilms; researchers should consult the comprehensive Family History Library catalogue for a description of this microfilmed archive. Alternatively, the originals may be viewed at PRONI, 66 Balmoral Ave., Belfast.
