Bryson family of Dundee
« on: Saturday 22 March 14 18:38 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I'm trying to find out some more information about this family, particularly James Fyall Bryson born 1897 in Dundee.  He was the son of David Sibbald Bryson and Mary Jane Fyall.  He had a brother, David Sibbald junior and a sister Florence born 1891 and 1901 respectively.

David Sibbald Bryson senior and his sons ran a company D.S. Bryson & Sons Ltd, oil refiners, paint and varnish merchants and ship stores merchants.  David senoir died in 1921 and the sons carried on the business until 1926 when it was dissolved and David Bryson junior re-formed the company under his name and ran it alone.  Meanwhile James Fyall Bryson went into partnership with William Miller to form the company Miller & Bryson, paint and general merchants, dry salters, etc, trading from 9 Barclay Place in Edinburgh.  William Miller retired in 1937 and James Bryson carried on the business on his own.

James Fyall Bryson married a woman called Katherine and died 27th January 1952.  His brother David died in 1966.

Any further information about this family gratefully received.

Regards,
Chris
