I am trying to track my Bredbury family in Cheshire. I have gone back to my 3rd Great-Grandfather John Bredbury who was born in Bredbury, Chesire in 1811.
John eventually moved his family to Haughton, Lancashire and I have traced some of his children's families in Lancashire. My direct Bredbury line ends up in New Zealand.
John Bredbury and Mary ?? had 6 children (that I know about).
1. Hannah Bredbury (don't know if she married and/or had children)
2. William Bredbury (don't know if he married and/or had children)
3. Amy Bredbury (married William Courtman and had children)
4. Martha Bredbury (married Frederick Johnson and had children)
5. John Bredbury (married Ann Coldwell - my line, he and his family migrated to New Zealand)
6. Mary Bredbury (had no children)
So far I have not come across my Bredbury being spelt as Bradbury.
I have also located the town of Bredbury being mentioned in the Doomsday Book. In the book is was written as Bretberie.
