Bryant Family of Somerset

Last weekend we were lucky enough to go to two Fleamarkets, and I had some lovely finds as usual. This is a group of four great old photos, all kept together thankfully, of the Bryant family in Somerset. So I have compiled a family tree as usual on Ancestry, link here:  Bryant Family Lynns Waffles   Hopefully these will be returned to family eventually, they are in good condition. Just three of them with names as you can see below, the last one is in a glass and wood old photo frame, dated ‘September 1882’ of a man seated with his lovely wife beside him standing and four children, it just says ‘Bryant Family’ as yet I haven’t identified them from the information on the tree. Maybe someone will recognise them, the man does look similar to Frank Bryant below, so obviously the same family, keeping my fingers crossed!

While researching this family I have come across a fantastic family tree for the same Bryant Family on Ancestry, this one has lots of wonder old photos of the family, some of which I have added to my Public Tree, so if you are related to this Bryant family, do get in touch with the owner of the tree, link here:   Bryant Family   I have sent this lady a message, she is in the US, to let her know about my blog and my finds. “mwildcat1 from Lawrence, Kansas, USA”
