I've got quite a few!  the earliest one being Lewis Bright (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bright-2513) who came to North America to fight in the revolutionary war and settled in York in the early 1800s.  Also all of his descendants.

Hi,

Yes I too have Brecht/Bright ancestors dating back to the 1400 in Germany. The Bright surname goes back to the mid 1700's in Augusta, Berks Columbia, Lebanon and Montour counties.

Not directly related, but I do manage some Bright profiles that are ancestors to a first cousin once removed. I've been researching for her and her children. I'll check your name study. :)
