Greetings to all Bradburys! Born Nov. 23, 1952. Norwalk, CT, lived out west in CA anhd WA states. Now in Chicago. Father, grandfather and great, great great etc. from Rhode Island. Many buried at Swan Point Cemetery in Providence. Some in Warren. From Thomas and Mary ca. 1634 one of the founders of Salisbury, Mass. The headstone has been found. Rudy, if you are still out there, God Bless! For some reason we are all interested in the family genealogy. My father Fabian (d. 2004) got me going. For novices, there is a book available, Bradbury Memorial. Pricey in a private reprint but all there. Hard to find the original. tim_bradbury@att.net

There used to be a link here that traced the Bradbury family all the way back to "Pepin the Short" and then Charlemagne, the famous French king who lived in the 800's (?). One of his descendants married a Bradbury woman many centuries later in England and one of their descendants was the first American Bradbury 'Thomas' who came here in the 1630's and settled in Salisbury, Massachusetts.

I cannot find the link here now, but it was a fascinating story and all apparently fully and accurately documented only because of the 'royal' connection in France that were kept in writing.

Would someone please post it again. I am sure other Bradbury's would find it very informational.

This site is amazing and has made me want to look into my history - So does anyone know the next link?
Son - Luke Joseph Bradbury b.2006, Huddersfield
Me - Lee John Bradbury b.1969, Blackburn
F - Harold Geoffrey Bradbury b.1929, Oldham
GF - Harold Bradbury b.1899, unknown (owned and ran a chip shop on Rochdale Road, Oldham until early 1960s if that helps!)
Don't know any further except that they owned and ran a sweet shop on Rochdale Road, Oldham (next door to the chip shop) again until the early 1960's. This shop may also have been a tobacconists.
Can you help?

Hello Bradburys everywhere. I am a Bradbury and a useless mug. I was born in December 1952 in Manchester, England but finally managed to escape to Somerset 11 years ago with my wife, Carol (nee Westphal). I have two younger sisters who still live in Manchester and are also mugs. My grandfather was Frederick Bradbury who, I am led to understand, had two brothers who were killed in the First World War (names unknown). Fred used to run a newsagent shop on Bradford Road in Manchester before I was born. My father (Alan) has shown little, if any, interest in his ancestry and further info is not forthcoming. I have managed to break the tradition of stupidity within this aberration of the family line by ensuring that my two sons, Philip Lee and Justin Graham did not grow up to be anything like myself. It was hard work and I hope the rest of the Bradbury clan appreciate my efforts to put this branch back on track. There are three further Bradburys: Justin's children Tia Renee (9) and Ted (2) - that's "Ted", not the diminutive of Edward; Lee (he has never been known as Philip) has a son called Jack (2). It's good to know that other Bradburys have made something of life.

Some years ago I posted a request for help on this website, and received good assistance in tracing my ancestors and their extended families. For the past two years I have been stuck at Thomas Bradbury born 1762, died 1825 Longnor - married in Alstonefield on 26th Nov 1795 (in the presence of William Bardbury and Philip Gudwin) to Ann Harrison, born about 1774 in Alstonefield, died 28th Feb 1843 Alstonefield or Hartington (both places appear in the IGI) Any further help to trace back before Thomas and Ann would be well received. Plus help to unravel the various Bradbury families living in the Longnor/Fawfieldhead/Alstonefield area of the Staffordshire Moorlands in the late 1700s - early 1800s would be appreciated.

Hi All My family are part of the Bradbury's in Leeds (although not part of the Porky Joe's Branch!). The family moved up from Shabbington on the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire border in the 1870s. According to family folklore there were 6 brothers who went separate ways at least 2 or which moved to Yorkshire, and others went to the USA.

In terms of my family I have the following;
Me Francis Mark Bradbury, born Leed 1965
DAD: David Maurice Bradbury, born Leeds (1926-90)
GDAD: Albert Bradbury, born Leeds (1887-1952)
GGDAD: John Bradbury, born Shabbington (1861-1925)
GGGDAD: Henry Bradbury, born Shabbington (1837-post 1901)
GGGGDAD: William Bradbury, born Shabbington (1810?-post 1881)
GGGGGDAD: James Bradbury, born Horspath, OXON (b1774- d b/n1841-51)
GGGGGGDAD: William Bradbury, 1739-1816
GGGGGGGDAD: William Bradbury, 1713-1763
GGGGGGGGDAD!!: John Bradbury 1678-1731

Although the earlier generations come from the LDS website so may be wrong.

Would love to have contact with any other BUCKS derived Bradbury's.

Hello Bradbury's ! My father was Byron Wilson Bradbury (b.1922 d.1980)and my grandfather was James H Bradbury(b. 1896? d. 1992- I think) Both were from the Cincinnati Ohio area. My dad and mom - Elizabeth (Cinquina) Bradbury moved to Schenectady NY area in the 1950's. I have 2 brothers, William B Bradbury (now in Newtown PA) and Barton J Bradbury (now in Wallignford CT) and 5 neices and nephews.

John, I notice that over at GenForum you were asking about the Knott family a few years back. Along the family line that you previously helped me uncover, three different members of the Knotts family appear to be domiciled with various Bradburys of my line between 1800-1900. We have:

Elizabeth Knott (~1837-1878) m. Richard Bradbury (1834-1875)
Hannah Knott living with Richard & Liz in 1871 UK Census and then Richard's brother William (1846-?) in the 1881 UK Census
Finally, I have a Mathew Knott living with Richard's daughter Annie in the 1881 UK Census.

Do you know anything more about these three - ie. their relationships to each other and lineage? Cheers.

Hi Jim,

If you could let me know when it is working I'd like to post the following:

Hello there Bradburys, Im researching a line that came from one James Bradbury a bricklayer born in Longden, Staffs. around 1816 He got married to Mary Ann (nee ?) who was from Armitage. They had a son named John William who was also a brickie born in Birkinhead around 1847 who got married to Mary E (nee ?) who was born in Congleton around 1853 these two had lots of kids amongst whom was one George James Bradbury (also became a brickie) born around 1881 who got married to Florrie (nee ?) They had three kids Elsie, Bertha and John born between 1904 and 190?. Florrie died young and George was killed in Gallipoli in 1915. Elsie Bradbury married Harry Thorp in 1927 and these two were my grandparents. If anybody has any information about this line it's be really welcome. All the best, Sean

Thanks

The name BRADBURY is an old English name and comes from Broad or wide, BURY which was a boarded fortified place, hence a wide wooded fort or castle. This means they lived in or close to a hill fort probably Iron Age. The town BREDBURY near Manchester is where a lot of BRADBURYS come from, the reason is obvious. I live about a mile from CASTLE RING, Cannock Wood which is a n Iron Age fort that consisted of several moats that had a high wooden fence around it and is on a hill that is the highest in Staffordshire. One of the most commonest names in the area around is BRADBURY. My ancestors in the late 1700`s lived within site of the hill and worked for the Marquis of Anglesey who lived at Beaudesert Hall and owned all the land including Castle Ring. So if my ancestors did not originate from that area I will eat my hat. From this you can see that lots of places in England that had Iron Age type forts may have had BRADBURYS living by them, so may not be related in any way to others from different parts of the country. Hope this of help to you in doing research. I could be wrong of course. We are all cousins at heart if we share the name. I run a local herutage group.

Hello John I was interested to learn of the site today quite by accident. I was looking for an old Hymn 'Just as I am without one plea' and that it was written by William Bradbury. Well my maiden name is Bradbury and I am the eldest of 9 children one of which is my brother called John!!! ( I am now 60) Anyway I have always wanted to know something of my predecessors but on seeing your site maybe we are realted in some way who knows. My father is called Thomas Bradbury and was born in North Staffordshire in 1924 he is still alive and celebrates his 84th birthday in May. Unfortunately not a well travelled man and quite disinterested in his heritage. His father, my grandfather was 84 when he died in Stone, Staffordshire and he died in 1961 making his date of birth 1877. If you have any information which could help me I would appreciatte it and if you want any further information from me I will try and help Hope you did not mind me contacting y ou Kind regards Barbara Rigg (nee Bradbury)
