Nicholas Brierton / Brereton / Bryarton 1860s
My Great Grandfather Nicholas Brierton, born 1831 Liverpool, son of Martin Brierton and Catherine Sheridan, sailed from Liverpool early 1860s for USA or Australia and never heard from again. I have found a Nicholas Brierton and a James Brierton who bought land in South Dakota in the 1880s but otherwise a dead end. He was a butcher and later a cattle dealer before sailing away to find bigger opportunities. Trying to find out what became of him. Have you come across a Nicholas Brierton or Brereton (or usual spelling variations) in your research? Any info appreciated, thanks.
