Wow... I never knew my last name had so much history! I have finally confirmed that my last name is, in fact, Irish. It's really cool.
My name is Troy Bryant. Interesting trying to figure out how I'm black with this last name.

They lived at Mud Camp KY then moved to Mud Lick Ky thanks for any help
I have had no luck tracing my Bryant roots past 1800's who settled in Ms. My great grandfather was ML Bryant or Marvin Lamar Bryant. I have been told he came from the North Carolina area, but I am not sure about that. I did speak with someone that told me that Henry Ford's wife was a Bryant from that area. I did research and found that some of Clara's sibblings had the same first names as Clara's family. I know these relatives were not the same as Clara's sibblings, but I found it odd that they had some of the same names as Clara Ford. Also, Clara Bryant Ford's family came over on the Mayflower and were aristocrats from England or maybe Ireland(not sure about Ireland.)
Sorry, I made a mistake … It is suppose to be "I found that some of Clara Bryant Ford's sibblings had the same names as some of my relatives in Mississippi."

Hello , I am Black and an descendant from Cody C. Bryant and Lydia Gray Bryant. Some of the children died and others moved to Michigan in the early 1900's. I have found the burial site on line and trying to extend my search for family history prior to 1850's in Jasper County, Georgia. If you recognize these names, please contact me. It's amazing to find out that Bryant comes from the Irish so now that further research. I know that my people migrated to Michigan and died .

I am looking for information on Rufus Bryant who married Jamima Jane Hitson. They are from the Graham, Texas Area. He may also have gone by Rudulfus or Rudolphus. Dead end!
Im a Bryant from Alabama. I have traced back to Edinburgh, where family artisans immigrated to Alabama to grow cotton in the 1700s. They became large plantation owners in west Alabama. With over 20 freed slave worker families on his land, all but one of the families adopted the name as their own. I hope that gives you a possible clue Troy.

Bryant is my maiden name. My Father was James. Born in Michigan. He was one of two children born to L. and C. Bryant. My grandfather was Lester Bryant which was married to Clara (Shwartz)Bryant. I've always heard we go back to England and Germany. I live in Indiana.
I am a direct relative of Daniel Bryant and Nancy Plummer, Cabin Creek, Lewis Kentucky 1795. Daniel died 1841 from there the name of Daniels father changes or remains Peter O'Briant who married Mary Millikan. Peter was born in 1750 died 1825. Peter's father was John O'Briant, born 1725 and died in 1809 in Mifflin, Ohio, Where did we start? The coat of arms differs from the Bryant's and the O'Briant's. O'Briant started in Ireland, the Bryant name is related to England, can any one help with more family history? I am at a cross road of an awesome story no matter what , most my family resides in Iowa, I live in Florida. Thanks, any help is great!
Anyone related to the Bryant's from evansville Indiana?

Nice to see so many Bryants. I have three aunts and one uncle who live in the area outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a few cousins. My brother and I are the only Bryants now as my father passed away in 1994. I've been told the name means the family on the top of the hill, which kind of goes with this.
