red mail Bryant and Wrench and Milsom families
My 2xggrandfather Joseph BRYANT was christened at Oldland in 1814. He eventually moved via Bristol to London. Sometime prior to 1841 he married Kezia, surname unknown but born St Georges (Bristol?) about 1813. One of their daughters was Elizabeth Wrench BRYANT (my great grandmother) born 1856 in Battersea, London. In the 1841 census I have found two groups of WRENCH living in Oldland, Bitton, John aged 72 and Charles and Martha aged 35. I assume that Elizabeth was 'Wrench' due to a family connection. I cannot find a 'Kezia WRENCH' or even a 'Kezia' in the area. Is it possible that someone can help me make a connection? David. Update: A recent piece of information suggests Joseph BRYANT married Kezia MILSOM at St Mary's Bitton in 1832 and she may have been baptised at St George's in 1816. Is this of any further help? David.
