About William Bryan, I

William Bryan, son of John Bryan, was born about 1650 and he married Alice “Elsie” Needham , daughter of Lord Charles Needham (4th Viscount of Kilmorey), in England about 1689. William Bryan was a Puritan while Alice Needham was a Royalist. Both families disapproved of their marriage, so there is speculation that they eloped. William and Alice came to America in 1689 and settled in Isle of Wright County, Virginia. In 1742, William moved to Albemarle Sound, Pasquotank County, NC with two of his sons, John Bryan and Needham Bryan. A third son, William Bryan Jr ., stayed behind for a time, moving to North Carolina later. William Bryan Sr. died in Pasquotank County September 23, 1742. Alice Needham was born in 1659 (or 1673) in England, and died November 14, 1714 (or in 1729) in Orange County, Virginia.
