Johnson / Bryans Families

Tracing the ancestry of Pamela Murdoch Bryans and Maurice Alan Johnson

Pamela Anne Murdoch Bryans

Pamela was an artist and her family tree links back to many fascinating lines, including the Burn-Murdochs, Rices (playwright Tim Rice is a cousin), Nisbets, Adairs and Kelsos. Through Pamela links go back to most of the Magna Carta Sureties as well as a number of Scottish and English kings.


This site captures the family trees of Pamela Ann Bryans and Maurice Alan Johnson, my maternal grandparents. Their descendents are not included, for privacy reasons. If you are one of their descendents, of course I'd be happy to send you a version of the tree with you in it.

You can either search for a specific person using the search box in the top right, or click on Pamela or Maurice and take it from there.

Here are some other places to poke around:

Maurice Alan Johnson

Maurice was a Lieutenant Colonel in the King's Royal Rifles and through him there are connections to various notables including Sir Isaac Lowthian Bell (Victorian Ironmaster and Baronet), and via various permutations, Catherine Middleton, the wife of the future King of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (she is a fifth cousin). Prince William is a 10th cousin, through the Venerable Thomas Vesey.
