I have only two links to the BRIGHT family at the moment, but am hoping for more.

Elizabeth BRIGHT and Timothy NICHOLLS were married on 22nd. March 1731/2 at Bitton. They were my 6x great-grandparents. Their daughter Rebekah was my 5x great-grandmother.

Ann BRIGHT and Samuel GULLY were married on 4th. March 1810 at St. Mary Redcliffe Church. They were my 4x great-grandparents.

The birthplace of Ann was recorded as Bitton in the 1851 and 1861 censuses, but I couldn't find a baptism for her in the Bitton register so I don't know who her parents were.

William BRIGHT, bapt 1851 in Cold Ashton, married Mary Ann HYDEN, nee LINTERN, in Bitton and followed Mary's grown HYDEN children out to live in Australia.

I have only indirect connections to this family. Edmund THOMPSON's 2nd wife was Ann Palmer BRIGHT (1822, Bitton -1904, Selly Oak), gdau of Thomas/Hannah nee OLDS (m. 1792, Bitton) via son Lewis/Joanna nee LAWRENCE (m. 1819, St. Thomas, Bristol).

Ann Palmer BRIGHT's daugher by her first marriage, Rose Bright BRIMBLE (bap 1858, Keynsham), m. Charles CULLIMORE of Bath. In 1881 they were in NorthField, nr Bham.

Edmund's daughter by his first marriage, Alice THOMPSON, m. Walter James BRIGHT, Kings Norton, nr Bham, 1876. We learned that Walter was a s/o Ann Palmer's brother in Bitton, 1824 Lewis Bright/Kezia nee DAVIS.
