I am trying to find out about Fanny BRYANT b 1840 at Lelant to John and Priscilla BRYANT.
I have her in the 1841 and 1815 census in Lelant and have also found her in the 1861 census in Devon at a place called Peters Marland, working as a nurse for a family called KIRWIN but cant find her any more after that.
Any one with any roots in Devon or know of any one I could get in touch with to help with this would be a great help.
A little detective work and I think I have found your missing lady. in 1861 you had her at the home of John Kirwan curate. in 1891 he is at Antony and in the household is Fanny M Greentree (1840 Lelant) Now for the fun: 1n 1871 I found Edward & Fanny Greentree at Hambledon in Hampshire (terrible transcription had Grenerck) in 1881 Edward, Fanny & son Ernest are at the Waterloo Inn, Waterloo Hampshire. Cant find Edward & Ernest after that maybe died. Then I found 1870 Bideford Oct-Dec 5b 957 Marriage of Edward Greentree to Fanny Mitchell Bryant. She died in 1897.(St Germans 5c 24 oct-Dec) Hope this is what you were looking for
Hi Fanny BRYANT did not have Mitchell in her name.
Her brother John BRYANT b 18 May 1825 m Margaret Mitchell BERRIMAN b 23 Sep 1827 on the 31 Jan 1850 St Ives. and children were:
William John Bryant b 3 Nov 1850 Matthew Mitchell Bryant b 1853 Catherine Frances Bryant b 15 July 1855 Thomas Mitchell Bryant b 11 July 1858 James H Bryant b 1860 Job Mitchell Bryant b1862 Wilmot Mitchell Bryant b 1864
that is the only time the name Mitchell was used as a middle name, as far as I know.
