Hi everyone, currently researching our family tree. I am looking of relations of my wife, Lorraine Bradbury. Lorraine has two sisters, Ada and Patricia. There is another sister called Florence, which no one has been able to locate. She would have been born in the Lancashire area between 1930 - 1950. Her dad's name was Sydney James Bradbury. We do know Sydney had a brother called Walter who lived in Wigan, Lancashire and we believe there are some off spring in the Wigan area. Sydney was married twice, his first wife died of TB. He married his second wife who was called Ada. Anyone with further information, we would love to hear from you. In the meantime, Happy New Year and all the best for 2008!

Hi, just found this great website! I am researching my fathers lineage. I am afraid he is not much help! I have trawled through the last 7 years of messages and found nothing unfortunately. Hope someone can help.
My father is TERENCE BERNARD BRADBURY born 1944 in Lichfield. His brother is COLIN and sister is ELAINE. Their parents were LEONARD JOHN BRADBURY born 1906 in Boney Hay and WINIFRED Ivy Webster. I know my grandfather was previously married, but his wife died in childbirth. No idea of her name. They had a son, who was taken by the wifes family and was not allowed contact with my Grandfather. I believe his name is ANTHONY.
My grandfathers mother was KATHERINE, but i cannot find any refernece of his father. He died young. My grandfathers brother was PERCY and his sister was DORIS.

Does anyone have any connection to Bradbury in Bakewell, Derbyshire, England?? I start with James Bradbury (born c1813, died 2/1/1892) married to Sarah (Watson - great niece of White Watson). James was a marble mason. They had 8 children:
James Watson Bradbury (born c1836, died 14/12/1869)
Sarah Ann Bradbury (born c1838, died 21/11/1839)
John Bradbury (born 17/12/1840, died 1/11/1903)
White Watson Bradbury (born c1844)
Walter H Bradbury (born c1846)
Anna Bradbury (born c1851, died 5/10/1855)
Robert Bradbury (born c1851, died 15/5/1884)
Martha Bradbury (born c1855)

There also seems to be some connection to Ecclesall Bierlow in Sheffield but I don't seem to be able to come up with what or why.

Walter's first wife died and he remarried - Alice (Smith, I think). When Walter died she married Joseph Shutt of Houston and moved to the USA with him and a son Jame Watson Bradbury.

Can anyone add anything???

I'm currently working on a family tree for my branch of the Bradbury family which has been centered in the Lancashire area of England for several generations. However, searches of various genealogy databases have failed to turn up virtually any information on my ancestors. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who shares these ancestors and has more information about them: Joseph Bradbury (b. 1866) m. Margaret (b. 1867) > Arthur Bradbury (b. 1891) m. Lily Gilford (d. 1965) Apparently Joseph had other children but am not 100% sure on which were his actual offspring. I have the names William (b. 1887), Joseph (b. 1889), Richard (b. 1889), Emily (b. 1893), Elizabeth (b. 1895), Talbot (b. 1897), Eva, Stanley, and Harold.

I am the 2nd great grandaughter of James Davis Bradbury (1855 - 1878). According to his marriage certificate his father was James Davis who married Elizabeth Bradbury on 5 Aug 1855 at Northwood, Stoke on Trent. Census records of James and Elizabeth through to 1901 link them with my grandfather. The marriage certificate identifies Elizabeth's father as Hamlet, but I have drawn a complete blank. I don't know why James Davis Bradbury used his mother's name at his marriage (maybe he was born before his parents married and registered as Bradbury - I can't find a record of his birth). Tracing back from James and Elizabeth Davis with whom John William Steel (Nephew) b 1887 and Gertrude Burkin (Birkin) born 1881 (neice) were living in 1891 I have discovered: John William Steele is son of John Jones Steele (b. 1862) and Elizabeth Ann Birkin (b 1865) (m 1886). Elizabeth is most likely the daughter of Thomas Birkin (born about 1838) and Jane Hill (born about 1841) (m 18 feb 1858 Northwood) Their other children include Gertrude Birkin b 1880 (the niece). This suggested that Jane Hill was the sister of either James or Elizabeth. In 1841 an Edwin and Hannah Hill (relationship not given on census) were living in Hope Street, Shelton with 1 year old Jane Hill and 5 year old Elizabeth Bradbey (?) name not clear. A Hannah Bradbury married Edwin Hill on 25th Nov 1838 in Stoke on Trent (Vol 17 p192 Q4). Has anyone come across this Hannah before? It seems likely she is Elizabeth's mother. Was she previously married to a Bradbury or was she an unmarried mother?

Great website! Who knew there were so many Bradburies out there, and with so much spare time on their hands! I am interested in any information on Richard Bradbury, my great grandfather. He was from Ireland, but was of Scottish ancestory, so the story goes. I think he was a fisherman. One story had him building a boat and sailing it across the Atlantic. It seems unlikely that he accomplished this feat alone, so there could have been a boatload of Bradburies. He arrived in Canada about 1895, and was promptly killed in some sort of industrial accident. He was 23. His wife was pregnant. The accident may have occurred in Newfoundland, but his widow gave birth to my grandfather, Richard Watson Bradbury in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in 1896. His widow remarried, and much of the family history was lost. The names Watson, Gordon, and Russell were much recycled in later generations. His widow may have had relatives in the US. Maine? I have no idea who Richard Bradbury descended from, so any info would be interesting.

Does any one know of an abandoned male child born on or about 21 August 1935 Aldershot, England. The child was left on the steps of St Anthony's Convent. The legend is with Pound Notes that were signed/issued by the Chief Cashier " Bradbury " of the Bank of England in 1935. Consequently the child was named Anthony Bradbury. Anthony after the Convent, and Bradbury after the Bank Chief and because Pounds were called 'Brads' .

I am trying to trace my father's side of the family back into England. My Great Grandfather Bradbury (given name unknown, but possibly William) married Mary A. Gordery, perhaps in England or in New Jersey. They are reputedly both from Shropshire (Shrewsbury?) They immigrated to settle in New Jersey and had two sons, William (1869) and Frederick George my grandfather (1873). I believe he immigrated before her and then sent for her. She departed England August 19, 1859 and arrived in New York September 27, 1859. He died before my Grandfather was born. His wife then moved to Minnesota and eventually the family moved to California in the 1920's. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I would appreciate any help that may be given. Thanks for such a great web site! I have monitored it for years now hoping to see something helpful.

My father, Prof. Fred Bradbury was born in PATELEY BRIDGE, Yorkshire, on Jan 26th 1865. He was one of, I believe, 8 children (at least one girl) and became a Professor of textiles at the College of Technology, Belfast. He was also an author of several weaving and spinning text books in the early 20th Century. If this rings any bells, please let me know.

I am “desperately seeking” information on Absolom Bradbury born c. 1829 in New Jersey (or so the story goes). At some point he moved west and married (Rebecca?) Jane Schry in Athens, OH in 1849. They had five children: Salina b. c. 1850 Naomi b.c. 1852 Sarah b. c. 1854 Jefferson Stanley b. 6/1863 Abigail b. c. 1866 I believe the first three girls were born in Ohio, and then drop out of sight. Jeff, and I assume Abigail, were born in Illinois. The family later settled in Kansas City, KS. The cemetery records also show a James that was about 10 years younger than Absolom. I’m not sure how he fits in. Can anyone help? (Yes, Rudy, I'm still looking!)

Thanks to this link I have found a second cousin in Yorkshire, England! Our grandfathers were brothers. He did not know my grandfather had come to the states or why or when he came. Neither do I. Therefore I am asking if anyone can help me find info about Francis Augustus Bradbury b. 15Feb1873 in Dewsbury, Yorkshire, England. He m. my grandmother Harriet E. Durkee on 24Jul1902 in Boston, Suffolk Co. MA . Since my grandmother was from NY there must have been a reason the wedding took place in Boston. Family? friends? Someone he came to the states with? After Hariet died 12Oct1912 in Brooklyn N.Y. He married a Theresa b.29Dec1899 d.1Jan1990. Last residence 11432 Jamacia, Queens,N.Y. Not positive I have the right Theresa. My father's name was Francis LeGrice Bradbury b. 4May1903. Don't know where there the name LeGrice came from. Friends in Boston? Friend or cousin my grandfather came over with? Anything ring a bell with anyone? Blessings to all the Bradburys around the world. I have never personally met one other than my father who disappeared when I was seven and died when I was 20.

For Dave Bradbery and anyone else who may be interested: I have found that my ancestors were creative spellers, with our surname spelled Bradberry, Bradbury and Bradbery in various documents at various times. I can trace my own line only as far back as 1810 in Virginia and have no idea how previous generations spelled our surname. I am interested in using DNA to help sort out the relations between our various lines and have a project website at To date, there are three members - all "Bradberrys". I'd love to have participation by "Bradbury" and Bradbery" men as well. Brent Bradberry

I'm looking for my nanna. Aussie Bradbury's I need your help! My dad was born Clarke Bradbury in Carlton, Victoria in 1936. He was raised as a "Shields" and spent some time in an orphanage in South Melbourne, Victoria, some time with his mum in a boarding house in South Melbourne and then moved into foster care. At this time he lost contact with his mum (my nanna) and never found her again. He died in 2002. According to dad's birth certificate, my nanna was born Patricia Ellen Bradbury in Fremantle, WA approx. 1914. However, the only record in WA is of an Ellen Mary May Bradbury born in 1914. Does anyone have info on Ellen Mary May or of a Bradbury/ Shields link?

looking for any relatives/descendants of the BRADBURYs from Stanton Harcourt,Oxfordshire (William etc) or Twickenham areas (Henry etc). I do know that the latter was related to the DEAL and STRONGITHARM families by marriage but have traced all of those that I need thanks.

Hope someone can help as this is all beginning to drive me crazy!!!!!!!

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a Bradbury Family from Outremont Quebec and maybe later to Ontario. Before that Percy and wife were from St. Helens England. Percy Bradbury and his wife Helen Walker were in Outremont Quebec and then maybe went to Oshawa Ontario for a visit or lived there. I have a really named Beatrice b. 1922 but went by her middle name Irene. Irene married a guy with only one eye...very cute. Looks like Errol Flynn the movie star from my parents era. Irene had a daughter called Betty. I have no last name for Irene's marriage. I'd love to find this family. My Dad's 1st cousin Cedric knew Irene and would love to contact her. Any help would be great.

Dear Listers I have put together a Bradbury database and would be most interested in hearing from anyone researching the Bradbury families in Bucks, England.

One of my ancestors was Robert BRADBURY married to an Elizabeth SOUTHERY(or SUTHERY, SOUTHERN) 10 Dec 1788 in Waddesdon Bucks. They had 4 children all born in Waddesdon, Bucks. Moved around to various villages, including Cuddington, Granborough etc.

John b. 1789 died, John b.1790,Thomas b. 1792 and Mary b.1793.

John b. 21 Nov 1790 is my ancester. He was indentured to a butcher John SMITH for two years in 1811 in Waddesdon, need his marriage etc.

Thomas b in 1792 was in the army in 1812 (Kings Own Militia), no records after that.

Robert Bradbury might be the son of John BRADBURY who married Joanne CAPP at Wolverhampton in 1740. If anyone knows of this family would most appreciate hearing from you...... In fact any info would be most helpful. Other names would be SEATON,STAPP, KNIBBS, RICKARD all in Bucks.

I am Teddy's daughter from his other marriage. Would love to track down my half sister or my dads sister/family in Australia. I too live in Australia now.
