PREFACE.

As the number who take much interest in genealogical researches 
is so small, there are but few persons who are aware of the diffi- 
culties and perplexities of collecting and arranging the genealogy 
of a family. Some families have but few records, others none at 
all ; lists of names are found without dates, and in some instances 
dates of birth are purposely withheld. The following records are 
divided into two parts. The first part gives but glimpses of the 
'name, without the connecting links, from 11S3 to 1670 (the object 
being to trace the name of Bradley as far back as possible) ; while 
the second part gives an accurate record from 163 1 to the present 
time. 

The name was originally spelled Bradley, the change to Brad- 
lee being made by Samuel Bradlee, who was recorded in the 
Dorchester records as the son of Nathan and Lydia Bradley, born 
Oct. 5, 1707, and on the monument erected to his memory, in the 
Dorchester burying-ground, as Mr. Samuel Bradlee, died July 7, 
1768, aged 62, the y giving place to e. Family tradition has it 
that the Bradleys in Dorchester were so numerous that mistakes 
were made, to obviate which Samuel Bradley changed the final 
letter to e. The changev.in spelling a>pplje,s aljso.to John Bradley, 
the brother of Samuel, W^^ose y.avne. is ref.oi-decl on his tombstone 
as Bradlee. : >. ■ : ' „ ,; - ■

lost. In this endeavor I have been supported and encouraged l)y

the assistance of my father, Nath'l B. Doggett, whose collection 
of dates of family history have been a stepping-stone to the fol- 
lowing facts. 

It will be seen that many families are but partially sketched, 
some errors, both in fact and date, may be found, and omissions 
detected, but as a whole the work may be relied on as substan- 
tially correct. For this correctness in a number of cases I am 
indebted to Mr. Nath'l J. and Rev. C. D. Bradlee, who have 
seconded the idea of a family history, and exerted themselves to 
make it as perfect as possible. 

Mr. Wm. T. Eustis has also given me many facts ; for which I 
would express my thanks. 

Any additional information or correction will be thankfully 
received and preserved for the benefit of posterity.

When two numbers occur before a name, they refer to the same two numbers reversed, 
following which whatever else that may be known of the person will be found.

PART I. 1183-1670. 



The earliest mention in England of the name of Bradley, 
which has come to my knowledge is in the year 1183, at 
the feast of St. Cuthbert, in Lent, when the Lord Hugh, 
Bishop of Durham, caused to be described all the revenues 
of his whole Bishopric. 

This survey of Hugh Pudsey, called Bolton Buke, men- 
tions in Wolsingham, which contains three hundred acres, 
Roger de Bradley, who holds forty acres at Bradley, and 
renders half a marc, besides forest service, to wit : forty days 
in the fawn season, and forty in the rutting season. 

In 1437 there is mention made of Bradleys, of l^radley. 
In the will of Ralph Snaith, which was proved March 23, 
1472 or '73, he mentions a farm had of Bradley. Again, in 
1475, the will of Sir John Pilkington, Knight of Yorkshire, 
bequeaths to his brother Charles a place named Bradley. 
The name seems to have been applied to places in England 



6 History of the Bradlee Family. 

at a comparatively early date ; but from what source they 
sprung I have been unable to ascertain. At the present 
time there are in England a number of townships which bear 
the name in Cheshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Southamp- 
ton, and Staffordshire, which is about the largest, con- 
taining three thousand three hundred and seventy-six acres. 

There are also Great and Small Bradley parishes in Suf- 
folk, and Lower and Upper, or Bradley Both, in Kildwick, 
Yorkshire. 

John Bradley was Bishop of Shaftesbury in 1539. 

In 1578 Alexander Bradley lives in the see of Durham, 
and about the same year Cuthbertus Bradley is curate of 
Barnarde Castle. The Bradleys of Acworth are the first 
who had their arms and pedigree preserved, and that by a 
visitation of the County of York by Wm. Dugdale, Nurroy 
King of Arms, in 1665 or '66. 

The arms are, " Or — a fess azure, between three buckles 
gules," and are proved by the visitation of Berkshire. The 
first one mentioned in the pedigree is John Bradley, of , 

in County Ebor, an ensign in King Henry the Eighth's army, 
on his expedition to BuUoigne in France ; then follows the 
pedigree, which may be seen in one of the publications of 
the Surtees Society. 

His grandson, Thomas Bradley, was Doctor in Divinity 
and chaplain to King Charles the First, afterward prebend 
in the cathedral Church of York, and rector of Ackworth in 
County Ebor. He was 6-] years, 7 months in August, 1665. 

His son, Savile, was Fellow of Magdalen College in Oxford, 
and another son, Thomas, a merchant in Virginia. About 
this time the persecutions in England led many to emigrate 
to America, and this emigration so increased that a tax was 
levied on all those who left the country; but this, instead of 
decreasing the number of emigrants, led man\' to slip away 
by stealth, and thus leave no record of their departure. 
Among the original lists of emigrants, religious exiles, etc.. 



History of the Bradlce Family. 7 

I find no record of Bradleys who can be traced to our 
ancestors, although a number are mentioned as having 
embarked for America. These Hsts of course are very im- 
perfect, and there are still many unpublished documents, 
which, when brought before the public, may help to mend 
the broken links in many family histories. 

Among the early settlers of New England we find a number 
by the name of Bradley, who are probably descended from 
a common ancestor, as the same names are often repeated. 

The following are the heads of a number of families of this 
name who settled in New England, the first mentioned being 
the only one the date of whose departure from England is 
known : — 

Daniel was born in 1615, in England, and came to this 
country in the ship "Elizabeth," from London, in 1635. 

He married. May 21, 1662, Mary, daughter of John Wil- 
liams, of Haverhill, where he resided; was killed by the 
Indians, Aug. 13, 1689. He had 7 children, one of whom, 
Daniel, married Hannah, and had children ; Mary and 
Hannah, who were killed by the Indians, Mar. 15, 1697. 

John lived in Salem, married Catherine, moved to Dcd- 
ham, then to Dorchester, where he had one child, Salathiel, 
who was born Mar. 16, 1642, and died at 6 weeks. 

He died, June, 1642, and left a will, in which his wife and 
brother-in-law, William Allen, were mentioned. 

One family of Bradleys, five brothers and one sister, settled 
in New Haven. 
They were : — 

1. William, who married, Feb. 18, 1645, Alice Prichard, 

perhaps daughter of Roger, of Springfield. He had 
8 children, and numerous descendants. Died in 1691. 

2. Ellen married John Ailing.

1660, and married, Nov. 9, 1663, Hannah, daughter

William Leete, and died June 20, 1702. 

5. Joshua was married, and had only Joshua, born Dec. 

31, 1665; perhaps removed. 

6. Nathan lived at Guilford, married Esther , and 

had 6 children. 

There were also in Connecticut : —

married Eliza, believed to have been daughter of 
Jonathan Brewster, and had 3 children. Died iii 
1662. 

Francis, of Fairfield, the Freeman of 1664, was of Branford, 
1660, and, removing to F., married Ruth, daughter of 
John Barlow, of the same, by whom he had 6 children. 
He died the latter part of 1689. 

Isaac, also of Branford, 1667, removed to New Haven in 
1683, where his name was long continued by a multi- 
tude of descendants. 

To return to Massachussetts, we find : — 
Ri( HARD, of Boston, who married Ann ; had Ann, born 

Dec. 16, 165 I ; Deliverance, Apr. 3, 1655 ; and John, 
who died at Liverpool, 1678, leaving a widow Mary. 

There was also JOSIIUA, of Rowley, in 1663 ! an<J WiLLlAM,

6-13. — Samuel,"^ is the first we find who spelled his name 
Brad/^^. He was a weaver and a fisherman ; and, in 
1753, was constable for the town of Dorchester, when 
it was recorded, that " removing out of Town John 
Beighton w'as hired to serve for ye whole Town." 
He removed to Boston, but was buried in the Old 
Dorchester Burying-ground, where, on a gravestone, 
erected to his memory, is the following inscrip- 
tion : — 

Here lies the Body of Mr. Samuel Bradlee, who died July 7, 1768, 
aged 62 years. 

Blessed are the Dead that die in the Lord, they rest from their Labour 
and their Works Follow them. 

He married Mary Andrus, at whose decease the follow- 
ing lines were written : — 

A FEW LINES OCCASIONED BY THE MUCH-LAMENTED DEATH OF MRS. 
MARY BRADLEE, WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE MAY 20, 1 796. 

Pardon the boldness of a mortal tongue 

While it attempts to speak departed worth 
That took its flight to Yon Celestial heights 

I-'ond of its native home, and tired of Earth. 

She's gone, and by this sad farewell 

Has drawn from every eye a friendly tear 
Down to the silent realms of death to dwell 

In awful silence to be bury'd there. 

Oh ! cruel death, to boast thy haughty sway 

O'er the frail bodv of a mortal worm. 
To spend thy fury on a lump of clay, 

And leave its friends in solemn grief to Mourn. 

She with undaunted courage bore thy threats 

And did at last thy baneful Sting defy. 
While guilty Cowards for their lives intreat 

A Christian hero, will not fear to die. 



History of the Bradlce Family. 13 

'Twas thou grim monster that did force her fliglit, 
With rapid swiftness from these mortal shores. 

Winging her way through fields of heavenly light 
Far from this world of vanity she soars. 

Faith thou transporting pilot of the mind 

By thee we sail through seas of human woe, 
Steering our course by thee are sure to find 

The blissful port of rest to which we go. 

Thou dear departed much-loved, pious friend. 

Whose name exists in sweetest memory still 
With Joy we think upon thy glorious end 

Believing, thou art safe from every 111. 

Thou did not like some untry'd soldier fly 

At the first shot & quit the hostile ground, 
But like a hero did thy courage try, 

While more than fourscore years have roll'd around. 

Thrice happy saint to find a sweet relief 

From this vain world where briers chock the ground 

Where every joy is check'd by sudden grief 
And not one drop of lasting pleasures found. 

Oh : would my maker clip this brittle thread 

That holds my life in tedious bondage here 
Jovful my soul would lift its infant head 

And by thy compass try its course to stear. 

Jovful with thee I'd quit this mortal stage 

Where tragic scenes too often pain the eyes 
And leave this theatre of mortal rage 

Where sorrows grow & every pleasure dies. 

Go on victorious saint to worlds of light, 

Flv fearless through the boundless realms of space, 

Should thou feel languid in thy lonesome flight 
Sing a loud song to Everlasting grace. 

'Twill raise thy spirits, rouse thy drooping Soul 

Assisted by the influence from above. 
Till thou shall safely reach the heavenly goal 

Where all thv grief shall sink in seas of love.
