b. 17 Oct 1734 in Scituate, Plymouth Co., MA, the son of Benjamin and Abigail (RANDALL) BRYANT
m. 16 Jul 1758 in Scituate
d. 3 Aug 1788 in Chesterfield, Hampshire Co., MA
b. unknown, probably in Scituate, the daughter of Benjamin PERRY
d. after 3 Aug 1788, probably in Chesterfield
Benjamin and Ruxby took part in the large migration from Scituate to Chesterfield, where they raised eleven children.
NOTE: The marriage of Benjamin Bryant and Ruxby Perry is given in the Scituate records, and History and Genealogy of Chesterfield says that Ruxby is the daughter of Benjamin Perry of Scituate. At least one reference says that this Ruxby Perry is Ruth Perry (b. 8 Sep 1723 in Scituate), the daughter of Benjamin and Ruth (Bryant) Perry. However, this is doubtful, as a 1723 birthdate would mean: (1) she was eleven years older than her husband Benjamin Bryant, and was not married until she was 35; and (2) her last child was born when she was 51. This is highly unlikely. It is more likely that Ruxby is the granddaughter of Benjamin and Ruth (Bryant) Perry through their son Benjamin (b. 1714). I have not yet tracked down the family of the junior Benjamin Perry yet.
Children of Benjamin and Ruth Bryant:
|Eli Bryant||Benjamin Bryant||Benjamin Bryant||Thomas Bryant||John Bryant|
|Mary Ewell||Gershom Ewell|
|Abigail Randall||Isaac Randall||William Randall|
