Woodville, where nepia? I know of a Woodville in South Australia, is that where you mean?
hi there, Woodville is in the Manawatu, New Zealand
- I will look up all the Bryant's I know of from around that area
Yes Wooodville in Manawatu in NZ.
Hi Ngairedith thanks for that ,there was a big Bryant family around 12 children born around the 1930's ,I think some still live there, the Bryant mother was named Mavis Bryant nee Litchfield ,she died in 1964.
here is a list of the BRYANT buried in the Manawatu as at Feb 2012
we will wait for some readers to help fill in the names of the children of Thomas Henry BRYANT (1894-1980) & Mavis Eileen LITCHFIELD (1904-1964)
I will add any further info as soon as it is received
I stayed at the Bryant's farm twice as a child, probably around 1960. My grandmother, Christina Pearle Geary, nee Thomas, was first cousin to Thomas Bryant. At that time only the youngest child Geoff was at home. He would be about 62 or 63 now. Yes, I think there were 12 children, including 3 sets of girl/boy twins although my memeory might be at fault on this. The only other first names of the 12 I remember were John, I think the eldest, and Beverly, I think one of the twins. Except for Geoff, they were all much older than me. The farm only ran sheep at that time but had been a dairy farm at one stage. It sloped down to the Manawatu river. I have many happy memories of those holidays.
Thanks for your message, do you have any photo's of the Bryant family or their parents?
Kind regards Murray
