I have been trying to locate this Brierly line for some time.
I have family history sheets and data sent to Australia from a Dr William Biggar Brierly in 1976. His address was given as 9 Hawthorne road Millbury Mass USA.
He was corresponding with the Woolfenden family of Australia. Elizabeth Brierly nee Woolfenden was my GGGG grandfathers (Thomas Woolfenden son of Jesse Woolfenden and Ann Dean from Rochdale Lanc ENG.) sister.
We had been sent these sheets and a family bible register many years ago, they were sent to a descendant of the family who passed away and I have had them for about eight years now. Thomas Woolfenden migrated to Australia as did his sister Mary and the Brierly family from Worc Mass were trying to put all this together but lost contact.
He was Dr William Biggar Brierly and his wife Edna Alice Brierly are you from this line ?
