Bryant's from Lelant and St Ives Cornwall UK
Hi to you all.
I am tracing my family history in to one of the BRYANT family's that lived in and around Lelant and St Ives in Cornwall UK.
So far I have done well and have gone back to the 1600s and now I have to put some flesh on the bones so to speak and sort out all of the family's they married in to and the work that they did.
In the 1600s my side of the Bryant's were farmers but by 1800 they moved in to tin and copper mining in the St Ives area.
I know that some of them went to the USA and to Australia to carry on mining when mining started to peatier out in Cornwall. I am trying to find out which family's went and to were, but no luck yet.
Some of the Bryant family's that stayed in Cornwall when the mining was closing down worked as Blacksmiths in Lelant and as school teachers and as shop keepers.
So that what I am up too at the moment. I hope to hear from any one connected to any Bryant's that came from my part of Cornwall and I would be glad to help any one if I can.
