Re: Bryan Lineage
While searching Burke's Peerage for an unrelated family I by chance typed in Bryan.The following is a living descendant of Sir Francis Bryan. Col. Charles Shepard Bryan (I will not include his current stats as he is listed as still living).His memberships include Society of Knights of the Garter and Plantegenet.SOn of Edward Bryan of London who is son of Josiah Bryan by his wife Mary Longlands and sixth in descent from Sir Francis Bryan who was cr a Knight Banneret on the Field of Musselburgh, 10 Sept. 1547, born in LOndon etc....
My main question - How reliable is Burke's Peerage?I thought it was always considered the most reliable information, but would like comments from the list as to their thoughts and considerations.
If this is true it would prove at least one line of descent from Sir Francis Bryan.To continue further into the information one must purchase a subscription. I am considering a purchase, but would like some reassurance that what I might buy would be factual information.
