Patawomeck Tribal Record CORE foundational member is this Silent and the tribal histories have records that he is the full brother of Dr. Richard Bryant, of Stafford County

As of March 2020, we have reanalyzed the Keziah Bryant cousins who are 8th generation cousins. We match at 15cM in a triangulation that is ferreted out for any endogamy. We have supplied this is a public venue which can easily be re-verified by anyone with a group browser. For replication by the public, see the family atdna community studies as our cluster grows at: This supplies this former request: More supporting evidence needed as of 30 June 2019. when it was stated here that it was too early to use atDna for this tree, which we disagreed. Stafford Co Bryant Y DNA of this Bryant group is RU106 and had already chromosome mapped back to gen atDna 8 gens back with cMs in the 15cM plus for the cousins in this downline to the cousins on the adjacent lines. Though no paper trail links the families that is made public here in this datat base, the Patawomeck Tribe has the records of their enrollment familes and their histories. Contributions from Elinor Owens ' and Phyllis Gallop's line to the Bryant cousins in larger groups, the ones with and without Gallop included. The Keziah claimants have very strong numbers triangulating at 1 145. The 4th and 5th cousin distances to the Owens and Bryant cousins are definitely not too far back to be seen and used to help solve these trees.

Disputed Origins & Relations


Parents. That Silent Bryant was son of Richard Bryant and Keziah Arroyah is claimed by Patawomack historian William "Bill" Deyo.[1] Volunteers with WikiTree's Native American project can find no evidence that either Richard Bryant or Keziah existed. Using Deyo's own figures, at the time of Silent's estimated birth, Keziah would have been either very young or had not be born herself, if she even existed.

First Wife. Silent’s traditional first wife was supposedly Lucy Doniphan (Proposed 1st wife of Silent Bryant) but no record of her or any marriage can be found (outside of Deyo's article). There is no reason to believe his first wife was a Doniphan or named Lucy, but it is said her name has been carried on as a given name among some of her descendants. She is believed to have left only one child, a daughter, Elinor, who remained in the area of her birth while her father moved away with his second wife.


Silent is found in relatively few records in Old Rappahanock County and in Essex County. He was paid several times for killing wolves.

Last Residence gift deeded to Elinor Owens by her grandfather, this Silent Bryant, who obtained said land from his grandmother, Mary (Wahanganoche) Meese who had it returned in the early probated will of her grandson in a court by Judge Grigsby. This land was Acquian Land, 824 A in Stafford Co Deed Book.

Silent was was born in c 1657 in Stafford, Va at the Richard Bryant of Stafford Co and wife Keziah Arroyah (Wahanganoche) land on Muddy Creek, which bordered Rappahannock Parish. When he could buy his own land, his neighbor, James Harrison who had moved back over the Patomeck River to the Essex Co side, where Harrison was appointed to appraise the estate of Silent Bryant in Essex Co, 11 June 1698 Bk 1:101, is recorded. Later, on April 12, 1701: James Harrison of Swan Creek, Sittingbourne Parish, Essex Co, sold 12 acres on the south side of the lower side of small out of Swan Creek to Charles Taliaferro for 1800 lbs of tobacco and there was this new neighbor, the Taliaferro family. The Harrison and Taliaferro married into the Rice Hooe lines and had some lines who were native who continued to marry natives, for example: The Owens and Smith original deed witnesses for these deed is noted. At least one native, William Bryant, took on the name of Bryant and was an orphan of the massacre. Silent would not have been an orphan as his gift deed from and to family of the specific Land that came from and went down to was a joint tenancy propery meant for the common good of the whole of the Patawomeck.

. His parents were Richard Bryant, transported to the Stafford area (then Westmoreland) about 1644 to 1650 by Christopher Boon and Keziah Bryant. Silent married Grace (Taliaferro) Bryant. He died on May 15, 1704 in Stafford, Virginia, USA. He gift deeded Acquian Land, 824 A to Richard Gallop (wife of Eleanor born Bryant and married Gallop and John Owens) and 4 others (named children of Nathaniel Bryant). The land of Silents originated from the earliest tracts of Mary Meese per her being Acquian.

U of CALI mid century archaeologists' Native Curriculum at UC Davis' time line includes Col Faulteroy Moore's wife's land deed work as well as Giles Brent's their marrying native just to get the land, is the dissertation short mention in a paraphrase; making the need for the Virginia Assembly oversight and re-assignment of lands controlling the attempts to grab land by marrying native women. The Acquian Land, 824 A on Northern Neck Land Grant book details that the land adjacent Giles Brien, an overlapping portion of it ended up back in the hands of Mary Meese (because she was Chief Wahanunoche's daughter or else the land would not have been hers to deed; therefore, two specific deeds that tie Silent Bryant to his unnamed daughter Elinor Bryant held title via her Gallop husband being named in the group, holding joint tenancy is what connects her to this line.

atDNA studies seem to confir with the above.

The land that was in probate under Judge Grigsby went back from son of John Stafford /Crafford/Grafford on the transcript naming his grandmother who had given him the land, Mrs Henry Meese and that same land went to Silent Bryant who gift deeded it to 4 of his children and son in law, Robert Gallop, who passed it down to Elinor (Gallop), his daughter.
