Richard Bryant/of Stafford Co) was born circa 1615 was the husband of Keziah Wahanganoche and the father of Dr Richard Bryant Sr. of Stafford County.

  • Dr Richard Bryant Sr was born circa 1650 was the husband of Ann Meese Redmond Bryant, and brother of Silent Bryant, Wolf Skin Supplier
  • The parent of Ann (Meese) Redman-Bryant question got solved. There was never a question of her being Ann Pert in the UK who lived 25 years earlier. The only question was did she have the same parent as her sibling Mary (Meese), the answer to that is joint tenancy gift deed - yes - Indeed. How do we know? Ann is mother to the Elkins whose Stafford/Crafford/Grafford petitioning son of John Stafford came to probate giving back land in court to the grandmother it originated with, Mrs Henry Meese, in the court listed with her spose, by name and the name of her spouse. That land originated as Acqui gifiting from the father of Mary (Wahanganoche)/Mrs Mary Meese. That was Patawomeck land, Aquia.
We moved to Fact from past fictional denotation of Dr Bryant.  We found his headright to the Nottoway Bryant group transporter, Christopher Boon.  In his will, he mentions his legit children and wife Ann, and he gave his medical kit to his son, Richard Jr.   


Brent Point Deed work researched.   Done.  He bought out the Tan Yard of Rice Hooe adjacent to Silent Bryant's Acquan Land where Widewater State Park is tody, which Silent's land came to him by his grandmother Mary Meese due to the Grisby Court of same land, then ended up in Silent's granddaughter's possession, Elinor (Gallop) Owens.


Land Research of Who Patented Land WIth Whom and Why:   Deed from Henry Meese's native wife down to Silent Bryant had to be native due to the law suit where Brent had to give back a lot of land to the natives for thinking he would just marry and take it; but, his wife successfully divorced him for abuse and he had to repay the land; yes, that land. Then, the co-patented land with RIchard Gallop with the people who were siblings of Silent, with Richard being the spouse of Elinor Bryant who was gifted land just mentioned in 2 specific deeds along with Elkins cousin, specifically FOLEY who married sibling of Silent is obvious to anyone that in-laws are co patenting together. Therefore:  White Rabbit Test gets applied.  The White Rabbit Test:  What would have to be false for this to be true? Answer: IT would have to false that Silent was NOT part of the Bryant household for this last paragraph statement not be true and since the deed work proves the connection, it is deed work that is no longer a circumstancial connection.  It is secondary sourcing.<

Anne wife of Dr Richard Bryant of Stafford County needs her last name to be Meese instead of Unknown

* Anne Meese needs connected to her parents Henry Meese & Mary Wahanganoche, There is no "Grace Meese in this immediate family." Done. Update in 2020, one of the Adventurer 8.0 Team members found the primary source for Grace Meese. Thanks to Coyal Gorman. The source is in her avatar of her new profile.
* Richard Bryant (Transport) needs connected to his son Dr Richard Bryant of Stafford County. This is done.
* Keziah Wahanganoche needs connected to her son Dr Richard Bryant of Stafford County. That is done.
Elinor (Bryant) Gallop-Owen daughter of Silent Bryant -founding member of the Patawomeck Tribe's Listing, tribal records is Silent Bryant --full sibling of Dr Richard Bryant and here with this summary is the response: Reconnection to Silent Bryant of daughter Elinor (Bryant) Gallop-Owen's deed work as Gallop spouse co patented land with Elinor 's Foley sibling's spouse; was given in a deed of gift from Henry Meese's lands that came to same as it did the others in the immediate family of RIchard Bryant. The 2 specific deeds are in the source sections. The profiles are linked within the About sections only, as of July 10, 2019.

There are a few signature SNPs that are in multiple sites that re-verifiable establishment of the claimants can be done by any party interested in replication of group chromosome browser input of kit numbers.

A single example of an 11cM sharing of claimants by Elinor Bryant Gallop-Owen cousins, depending on which way they are connecting; but, most have a lot of endogamy in these lines: Hans Friedrich adds: This is my grandfathers line !! Chief Wahanganoche 12th great-grandfather Keziah Arroyo Richard Bryant Sr. ( - 1704) Elizabeth Bryant (1675 - Ralph Elkins (1700 - ) Ruth ELKINS (1728 - 1806) Rebecca Rachel Skaggs (1790 - Hannah Lester (1790 - 1815) malachai staton (1810 - 1880) Nancy Ann Staton (1836 - 1907) Franklin Jude (1859 - 1915) Mattison Elsworth Jude (1894 - 1963) John Jude (1922 - ) John Dean Jude (1950 - ) Hans Friedrich

This info comes from Bill Deyo --- Following received from Bill Deyo on 6-5-2019 Richard Bryant and Anne Meese had, among others, Elizabeth Bryant, who married Richard Elkins, son of Ralph Elkins and Miss Ashton (sister, not daughter of Col. Peter Ashton).

Following received from Bill Deyo on 6-5-2019 Also, there was no Grace Meese. John Ashton’s wife was Grace, but she was not a daughter of Henry Meese. That was only theorized because Henry Meese gave a deed of gift of a cow to Grace’s daughter, Mary, who was most likely his goddaughter and named after his Indian wife, Mary. Henry did not give any gifts to any of the other children of Grace Ashton.
