About William Bryan, I

William Bryan Birth 1655 in Nansemond, Virginia, United States Death 1742 in Pasquotank, North Carolina, United States

Family Members Parents Francis Bryan 1630 – 1693 Sarah Brinker 1634 – 1698


They emigrated to America in 1689 and lived first at the Isle of Wight Co, VA. They had three sons: William Bryan, Needham Bryan and John Bryan

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.

No connection to Charles Needham

Charles Needham and Bridget Drury had no daughter Alice. There is no room between their documented six children (one died in infancy) for another child—they were married Feb. 27 1654/1655, perhaps 1654, as their second child Robert was baptized in 1655, and Charles was in prison toward the end of their marriage (imprisoned 1659, died in prison 1660).
