Nikki, I have been researching Brindleys for years and slowly am connecting our diverse family lines. I combed all known resources for data, such as civil registration sites, IGI, wills, etc. If you want an overview you could get my book - Brindley Genealogy, from Churnet@thebookshopleek.co.uk I also produce a quarterly newsletter called Brindley World News, which encapsultes the latest Brindley related news/research and keeps us all in touch. Best wishes in your quest. Gordon Brindley, Gatley, Cheshire.
