My name is Mark Bryning, son of Carlton Bryning, grandson of Alan Bryning, great-grandson of Alonzo Bryning, great-great grandson of John (II) Bryning, and great-great-great grandson of John (I) Bryning.

As you may know, there are quite a few John Bryning in the BRYNING family tree. Of course, this complicates the already difficult task of trying to establish firm linkage from generation to generation.

I am trying to establish such a linkage between my ancestors in U.S.A. (and Canada) with those in England.

It is my understanding that the original migration to North America was sometime before 1820, when John (B:1770, D: 1853) came to New Brunswick County, accompanied by his son(s). One son, who was also named John [B:1880, D: 1865], and another son named Peter {unknown birth/death].

Our family has repeated the story that Peter Bryning, who was supposed to be physically a "hunchback", was separated from the others upon arrival, and no information is known of Peter after this.

The Bryning family remained in Canada, and both John (1770-1853) and his son John (1880-1865) married and had many more children, including even more children named John to complicate the research of family ancestry.

My ancestry comes from Alonzo Bryning (B;1827, D:1915), who was the oldest surviving son born to John (1800-1865) and his wife Anna KERN (B;1805- D;1881).

They came to the U.S. sometime between 1871 and 1878, when they migrated (probably first to Missouri) and then to Trinidad, Colorado.

I would appreciate any information anyone may have about the parents or siblings on the first John (1770-1853) Bryning, including wives and children who may have remained in England.
