just had another look and it seems it was only in the early 1800s that some of them moved to Lancashire and a few others moved to Devonshire

William Report 11 Jan 2013 19:51

Brimage family in question - Richard, Elizabeth,, Thomas, James, Charles, Mary, John. (as per 1851, 1861)
Family names have been carried forward over years.
Our closest - most recent and close link to above - George William Brimage born 1901 Liverpool.

Any link to John Brimage 1796 Guernsey, Thomas Brimage 1788 (Marine private??)

Right, so your connection is through James Manley, son of Richard and Elizabeth and grandson of John and Harriet in 1851/61 census.
