Violet and Hilda Bradbury
Posted by: Victoria Stott (ID *****0717) Date: August 19, 2006 at 14:50:25

I don't know if any one can help me. I'm trying to trace Bradburys in England but I have very little information. My grandmother was Violet Bradbury and her ancestry had been a complete mystery - even to her - for many years. Unfortunatley she is no longer with us, but my mother is very keen to know where she comes from. What we know is: My grandmother was born in a mission in Doncaster, Yorkshire after her mother was sent away in shame to have a baby out of wedlock. We have her birth certificate which lists her date of birth as thirteenth of May 1924 and her mother as Hilda Bradbury a housemaid. Unfortunately, there is no father mentioned and Hilda's residence is listed as the Mission. We believe the family actually came from London. Other than that we know nothing. I know it's a long shot but someone might have a family with a Hilda and a rumour of an illigitimate daughter I suppose! If any one can help please let me know. Thanks Vicky
