I'm looking for any info about Jonathan Bryant born about 1759 in Norwich England. Died October 2 1808 in Charleston SC. Here's what is known about him:

Jonathan "John" Bryant, born about 1759 in Norwick (or Norwich) England. Immigrated to the U.S. in 1788. Around the 1790s, he may have lived in Leicester Township, Worcester County Massachusetts or in Freetown Township, Bristol County, Mass. By 1793, he was living in Charleston, South Carolina (SC).

According to records of St. Philip's Parish in Charleston SC, he married Jane Thornton 08 Oct 1794. Jane Thornton was the daughter of Henry Thornton. She was born Bet. 1756 - 1765 in Canterbury England, and died Bef. 1830 in Charleston , South Carolina.

Jonathan Bryant died 02 Oct 1808 in Charleston, South Carolina. His Obituary from the Charleston Times reads: Mr. Jonathan Bryan (sic) d. Oct. 2, 1808. Gardener & Clerk of the Markets, 49th year. Native of Norfolk, England. America 20 years, Charleston 15 year, left

Children of Jonathan Bryant and Jane Thornton are allegedly:
