I now have come to one of my hard parts of my Bryant family history. (part of the BRYANT family tree from Lelant)
My grandfather Richard Henry BRYANT m Grace Richards COCKING at Pz reg office 20 Jan 1917. lived St Ives
They had three children :
Richard BRYANT b 1920 d in late 1980s
Matthew Mitchell Bryant b 27 Jan 1926
Leo Bryant (my father) b 21 Aug 1929 d Aug 1996
I am trying to any where to get info on Matthew Mitchell BRYANT. as my father and his brother Richard have died and cant ask them.
The only info l have is, Matthews birth cert and a school photo. and this info below from some one who went to St Ives Boys School with Matthew.
And l Quote When Matthew was growing up he was a bit wild. He eventually ended up in a boys detention center (like a Borstal) so he may have done something wrong. He was made to work on a farm which he did not like and fell out with his father (Richard Henry BRYANT) for letting him be sent there. After this he went into the Merchant Navy (at a early age) He later in life came back to St Ives to visit his brother Richard and was said to have done very well in the Merchant navy he lived around Portsmouth. End Quote
Thats all the info I have, so now I am on the hunt for more.
