I have found and given some new clues on Bryson surname. In the 1788
Electors Poll I have found the name spelled Bryson and Brison (all in
Altawark). There is nothing by that spelling for the 1821 census. I do
find Breson for Altawark and Grogy townlands. All 3 of these names are
B625 in the Soundex code. That is the only entry for Breson in Fermanagh
Gold. None in 1788 or any other record. How likely is it that these names
apply to the same families? I have a Mary Bryson and James Bryson that I
am researching and both of those names are found in the 1821 census several
times. Both born about 1800 to 1820.
Thanks, Becky T.
