The earliest record found for Bryant is his listing in his father's will, recorded in the Clerk Superior Court in Goldsboro, North Carolina.

Bryant was the first of his family in Georgia. In January of 1826, he and his wife Smitha WILLIAMS, were living in Twigg County, GA when he purchased land in Henry County, GA. They moved to Henry County that same year and Bryant helped organize a Methodist Episcopal Church there.
Bryant sold his Henry County holdings in 1828 and bought land in Troup County, close to Montville, GA near his daughter and son-in-law Louisa and Abraham Peavy.

In 1836, Bryant was one of the founding trustees of the Pleasant Grove Methodist Episcopal Church near O'Neal's Mill in Troup County. He was serving then as Justice of the Peace and had accumulated a plantation of over 1000 acres in the vicinity of Pleasant Grove Church.

Bryant was widowed in 1837. He became a land speculator in the 1840's and moved frequently until his death in Dekalb, Georgia in 1854. Bryant and his wife Smitha had 11 children. Penelope, Jane, Matilda, Mary, William, Sarah, Henry, Naomi, Louisa, Wiley, and Bryant Jr.
