Who would have thought there would be so many Bradbury's? and from so far away! I don't think anyone's mentioned my line of Bradbury's, but as it ends with my family :-( it's quite sad. I'm the 2nd of 4 girls, being Penelope Anne, Elisabeth Claire, Anna Catherine and Jennifer Jane. My parents are Nicholas John BRADBURY and Jeanette Catherine (nee. Dunbar) My Dad has one sister, Kate. His parents are John Vernon BRADBURY and Gwynfa Mary. I couldn't go further back than that confidently, but understand that my Aunt had done some considerable research into our ancestry. Neither can I say where we are based, as both my grandfather and Dad were in the RAF! Anyone able to shed some light for me?? Lizzi xx

I am researching in the Bradbury line as my great-great grandfather, Oliver Smith Dow was married to Mary Joselyn Bradbury. The line I am told is from Thomas Bradbury (b.2/28/1610/11) and I have followed it down to John bradbury(b.9/18/1736 and married to Mayflower descendant,Elizabeth Ingraham). This is where I have bogged down! I believe the line goes to Paul Bradbury (b.3/27/1758);True bradbury(b.1/31/1788); Samuel(b.9/18/1818); and Mary(b.6/27/1843) If anyone could give me assistance on any of these names, I would be in your debt. Thanks, Steve Dow

Hello Bradburys I am researching the family of John Bradbury (b.1832) who married Zipporah Rosebottom (b.1840) in 1865 at the Church of St Cross, Knutsford Inferior, Cheshire, England. By the time of the 1881 census they were living in Hyde, Cheshire with 7 of their sons Robert, Thomas, Fred, Frank, Harry, James & John. Is anyone else researching Bradburys in Knutsford or Hyde around that time?

Since my last message 2 years ago, I have discovered a good deal more about my Bradbury heritage. The furthest back I have reached is: 1) JOHN BRADBURY (possibly born c.1810) was a clerk in 1856 in Lower Broughton, Salford. He had at least one son JABEZ, and maybe another, Thomas. 2) JABEZ BRADBURY (c.1835-1890) was variously a shoe manufacturer, merchant and warehouse owner mostly in the Broughton area of Salford (Manchester) and married Ellen Hampson in 1856. They had at least 2 children JOHN and Arthur (married Elizabeth Ellen Swindells, had 2 daughters, Dorothy & Gladys, & stayed in Broughton), and probably others, maybe a William and a Sarah Ann. 3) JOHN BRADBURY (12/8/1868-?) was a young show manufacturer and then he owned a pub at 14 King Street, Salford. He married Charlotte Godson in 1891 with whom he had 2 sons, John (who had 4 children) and FRANK. They may have moved to a pub in the Gorton area of Manchester in the early 1920s. 4) FRANK BRADBURY (25/10/1895-c.1970) was a clerk with the Manchester Ship Canal living in Gorton and then in Northenden. He married May Steele (c.1922) and had 4 children: Frank (1922-c.1990,1 son, John, who has 4 children), John Roy (b.21/10/1925), Hilda (b.6/9/1928, two children,Susan and Mark) and NORMAN. 5) NORMAN BRADBURY (1/7/1936-25/8/1979) was a quantity surveyor and married Patricia White in 1960 and had 3 children: Fiona (me!), Paul (two children, Alex and Lucy) and Martin. If anyone has any further information about these Bradburys, especially those in 19th century Salford or earlier, please do tell me. ALL marriage partners were Mancunians, and the Hampsons and Godsons were also Salford families.

Becky - Congratulations on your GCSE result. Two points of interest for you. Firstly, have you visited the Saddleworth Historical Society Website? If not, I'm sure you will find it interesting. It contains several Bradbury family trees which might even show you own ancestors. Secondly, a book has just been published in the USA about a William H Bradbury who migrated to America from Saddleworth in the 19th century and wrote about the American Civil War. If you would like details get in touch.

Having just returned from a trip to Wicken Bonhunt and seeing the Bradbury Coat of Arms over the door of "The Brick House" - which is the same one as in "The Bradbury Memorial" I wonder why it is not displayed on this web site, and what is the origin / significance of the one that is displayed. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Can anyone in Australia help me with advise as to where to go from here. All efforts to find out anything about my gt gt grandfather before he came to Aus in 1848 and what happened to him after 1874 has been in vain. I have his marriage cert - married in Middleton England 1843, and have information from the Burgess rolls stating he lived in Swan Street Richmond Victoria up until 1874 but then he vanished. I can't find any death or burial details in Victoria but do have my gt gt grandmothers details and he isn't buried with her. I am at my wits end and have been looking for about 8 years. Can anyone give me any suggestions. Jenny Fairchild

I just purchased the small book, "Beginnings: the settlement of the St. Croix Valley". It is about the early settlement of Calais, ME and St. Stephen, NB. I was hoping to find information on Simeon and Annie Bradbury, but they were not mentioned. However, there is some nice information on Bion Bradbury and his father, Jermemiah. I would be willing to scan and send if anyone is interested. Sue

Great looking site. I've just found it and I'm looking forward to perusing it. Two new ones for the family I've added recently: John Ross Bradbury (born Sept. 11, 1999) and his little brother, David Michael Bradbury (born Feb. 24, 2001), my sons. Love to hear from each and every one of you! I was born Sept. 14, 1958 and am descended from Thomas Bradbury who left England in the 1660's for the New World. Looking forward to hearing from any of my "extended family"!!

What a fantastic site and I even came across someone with the same name (unbelievable). I am the son of Roy Bradbury who was born in South Africa in 1920 but the family line is from Australia. He married Noreen Allman and I have two brothers by the name of Kevin and Garth and we were all born in Zambia. I am 40yrs old and would love to know more of our history. My brother has the family tree and I will get on to him to add to this site. Hi to all the Bradbury's

Looking for Mary A. BRADBURY. Born 1830's -1840's Possibly in Oldham, England. She married James Balm (Balme) born possibly in Halifax. Moved to Oldham. Somehow Mary was related to a ALBION BRADBURY. He was born in Maine and later moved to Bloomington, Minnesota (ALBION, NELLIE GEORGE AND HARRY)I FOUND THIS INFORMATION ON THE 1870 CENSUS. My great great grandmother is living with these folks (Mary Hannah Balm). THE CENSUS DOESN'T PROVIDE MARY'S RELATIONSHIP INFO TO THE BRADBURYS. Mary was born in 1855 in England (possibly Oldham). Hope someone can provide me with information. BY THE WAY,,,, WONDERFUL SITE!!

John, Hope you get this message. I'm sure there's a connection between your Miles Luston Bradbury and the Luston Bradbury that I have recorded in my family search files. My grandfather Carl was the second son of a Luston Bradbury. Carl was born Sept. 3, 1902 in Topeka, KS. I also have record of a Cyrus or Sirus Bradbury. My mother passed this information to me, but wasn't sure of the spelling of Cyrus's name. Please contact me at the above e-mail address. I'll also forward some family information to your home e-mail. Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi out there, I am searching for my GG Grandfather, George Bradbury. On his marriage certificate in Australia 1882 he stated he was born in Thame Oxfordshire approx 1853. His parents were William B and Ellen Cross. He came to Aus as a lad with brother William assisted by Mr Tyson. I have been unable to confirm any of this.

My great grandmother was a Bradbury born in Australia. I received recently a copy of some of the research done by my Aunt on the Bradbury line. I am actually focusing on a different line, but have hit a brickwall so thought I'd have a look and see where the Bradbury line might take me. A James BRADBURY is the end of the line in our tree. He was married to Anne Broadbent (b c 1805) (no other details) and was father to Eli Elliott b 1839 in Yorkshire, England d 1899 Drytank Victoria, Australia. Not sure who or when they migrated to South Australia. Eli Elliott m 1874 at Broughton SA to Hannah Grace Bairstow b 1848 in SA d 1918. They had 8 children my g grandmother Edith Ann b 1875 amongst them. Any connections out there?
