Video Documentary 

Edward Brantley His Life His Progeny

 The Video documentary was produced after decades of research on the Brantley family by association founder J. Kenneth Brantley.   The video begins with the reconstructed scene of Edward Brantly's decision to leave his English homeland and come to the providence of Virginia in 1638.  Narrated by Mr. Brantley, it discusses Edward servitude there and lands he would later received from then, providence Governor, William Berkely.   Both ground and aerial views of Edward's home sites in Isle of Wight County, Virginia, add to the depth of the video.  After covering the life history of Edward and the re-enactment of the signing of his will in 1688, the documentary shows the movements of his descendants which began in the mid 1700s up through the Civil War period.  Included is a brief discussion and photos of prominent Brantley kinsmen of the 19th and 20th century.  An addendum covers the 1995 visit of the Chatham, NC lands from which Mr. Brantley descends reflecting the early home sites and cemeteries of the area.   Thousands of Americans descend from John and Hannah Brantley who resided there in the mid and late 1700s.  The video is one hour long.  (See Newspaper Article)
