    Default Nailsea, somerset. Leadlighter. Samuel Bryant

    Samuel Bryant married in Melbourne 1860. Worked for Brooks Robinson Glass Co. The company began in Nailsea by Henry Brooks. Martha Brooks was Samuel's mother, buried Nailsea.
    There was a great fire in Nailsea glassworks 1850.

    Is there a way I can find out from emigration list Britain if fare was paid? If his fare was paid I will have difficulty finding records in Aust.

    regards, di

    I haven't seen any reference to a fire at the glassworks as yet.

    There was a destructive fire in September 1863 that almost destroyed the glassworks - can't find reference to one in 1850.

    helachau,

    My mistake. A fire occured near Nailsea St as a result of fire box knocked off. See Peter Wright, Nailsea a handbook
