Named after a Quaker Poet, Journalist, and Editor,

 William Cullen Bryant

Buried in Roslyn Cemetery, Roslyn, Nassau Co, NY, USA
He was an American Romantic Poet, Journalist,
and a long-time Editor of the New York Evening Post.
Bryant Park in New York City was named after him.

His middle name Cullen was used for another SK Hamlet
just east of Bryant.

As far as I know, it is still a mystery who named these towns.
Most in this area, if not all, were named after poets,
and or, writers, but who named them is unknown.
