BREEN, CHARLES (1787–?). Charles Breen, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, received title to a league of land now in Brazoria County on May 24, 1824. His character certificate stated that he was born in Georgia in 1787 and that he came from Alabama to Texas with his wife, two sons, and two daughters. He may have been living in Williamson County in 1850.
