(The Bradford Line).

The surname Bradford is derived from the name of a place, Broadford or Bradenford. There are two very ancient towns of this name, one in Wiltshire, England, near Bath, and one in Yorkshire, near Leeds. Near the latter was the home of the ancestor of the American family. The family dates back in England, doubtless, to the beginning of surnames, in the eleventh or twelfth centuries. One of the first martyrs burned at the stake during the reign of Bloody Mary was John Bradford, Prebend of St. Paul and a celebrated preacher. He was born in Manchester, Lancashire, 1510, and was executed July 1, 1555. He was a friend of Rogers, Hooper, Saunders, Latimer, Cranmer and Ridley, who also died at the stake about the same time.

The Bradford coat-of-arms is: Argent on a feese sable, three stags; heads erased or. Right Reverend Father in god, Samuel Bradford, Lord Bishop of Rochester and Dean of Westminster, bore these arms as well as those of his Episcopal See. The ancestry of Governor William Bradford has not been traced beyond his grandfather, mentioned below, though it is known that the family is ancient.

(I) William Bradford, grandfather of Governor William Bradford, lived at Austerfield (Osterfeldt), county Nottingham, England, and in 1575, he and John Hanson were the only subsidiaries located there. Bradford was taxed twenty shillings on land; Hanson, the same amount on goods. His grandson William (Governor), lived with him after the death of William, his son. The date of his burial at Austerfield was January 10, 1595-6. Children: 1. William, mentioned below. 2. Thomas, had a daughter Margaret baptized March 9, 1578, at Austerfield. 3. Robert, baptized at Austerfield, June 25, 1561; married, January 31, 1585, Alice Waingate; with him Governor Bradford lived after his grandfather died; in 1598 Robert was the only subsidiary at Austerfield; his will was dated April 15, 1609, and his he was buried April 23 following. Children: i. Robert, ii. Mary, iii. Elizabeth, iv. Margaret. 4. Elizabeth, baptized July 15, 1570.

(III) Governor William (3) Bradford, son of William (2) Bradford, was born in England and baptized at Austerfield, March 129, 1590. After his father's death he lived at first with his grandfather, but on his death, William went to live with his uncle, Robert Bradford, who lived in Scrooby, five miles from Austerfield, near the estate of the Brewsters, in county Nottingham. He joined the church where Rev. Richard Clifton and Rev. John Robinson preached, and soon became one of the leading "separatists." His early educational advantages were limited, but by diligent study he became very proficient in Dutch, Latin, French, and Greek, and also devoted himself to the study of Hebrew that he might read the Bible in its original form. He went with the company which migrated to Holland, and was a most influential power among them. On his coming of age he received considerable property from his father's estate, but did not succeed him in his commercial undertakings. He learned the art of "fustian or frieze weaving." On November 15, 1613, he was affianced to Dorothea May, from Wisbeach, Cambridge, England. The bans were published in Leyden, and they were married in Amsterdam, Holland, December 9, 1613. His age is given as twenty-three, hers at sixteen. They embarked for England July 22, 1620, and after many trials sailed from Plymouth, England, September 6, 1620, on the ship

Page 70

"Mayflower," reaching Cape cod harbor the November following. While they were at anchor, and he was absent from the vessel, Dorothea fell overboard and was drowned, December 9, 1620. Soon after the death of Governor Carver, William Bradford was elected Governor of the colony, which he held by annual election until his death, with the exception of the years 1633, 1634, 1636, 1638, and 1644. He took a prominent part in all the councils, which were held at his house, and in all civic, political, and military affairs. From his house at the foot of Burial Hill each Sunday morning, the company of people who assembled there marched up to the fort at its top, where religious services were held. The history of the times which he left gives a correct and valuable picture of the events of that time.
