I have come to that brick wall people talk about when starting off on the research journey.
I have confirmed Mary E Bryant married Henry Fitton in Sydney Australia. Henry being my husbands grandfather. Mary E Bryants mothers maiden name was Mary E Chandler married to Thomas Bryant in Sydneey 1860. Thomas is the mystery - I can find a Thomas who immigrated to Sydney either on the Kate in 1856 Or the Lady Annn in 1854. No Birth records Australia that I can find. I do not know his exact date of birth except the shipping records state he was around 23 24 years old. I cannot find his parents names, but deceased family members claim Mary E Bryant was related to the Bryants from Bryant and May (the matches company) I have tried resoursing this Bryant family, but cannot find a Thomas born about this time that came to Australlia. I can find a death in 1870 in Sydney aged 45 years which fits, but cannot confirm. Can anyone out there assist with my dilema?
