The de Brionne de Brienne Hypotheses
Heraldry can be an important part of genealogy. In the case of the Bryan/Bryant/de Bryan family line, you can see the three piles are a common ordinaries for this family. There is a dispute as to where this family comes from before Sir Guy de Bryan the first. The two hypothsis are that they come from the de Brionne family or that they come from the de Brienne family. The coat of arms may provide a clue to where this family comes from.
