v. Thomas Bradley , b. December 09, 1593.
vi. William (Broadley) Bradley [Sir], b. April 1597, Coventry, Warwickshire, England; d. 1653.
Daniel Bradley (1589-1641) may have been the father of both immigrant William Bradley (1610-1691) and immigrant Ellen Bradley (1632-1683). It is believed that Daniel Bradley (1589-1641) married first in 1607 and had perhaps 8 children including William Bradley (1610-1691) and that he married third in about 1631 and had 5 children including Ellen Bradley (1632-1683). Other children from these unions are also believed to have immigrated to America during colonial times. Daniel Bradley (Haverhill, MA), Michael Bradley (NY), Samuel Bradley (probably a son, probably of NY), Marie Bradley (married Thomas Leaver; Rowley, MA) from Daniel Bradley’s (1589-1641) first marriage are often cited. And all 5 children of the third marriage are believed to have immigrated to America with their widowed mother Elizabeth Sheaffe Bradley “to join step-son William Bradley” at New Haven, CT by 1648. Daniel Bradley (1589-1641) of “West Morton” and his children were from the Bingley, Shipley, Bradford area of West Yorkshire, England.
23 Jul 1634 – A Bingley Register shewinge in what Pewes or Stalls every Househoulder inhabitinge wthin the p’ishe of Bingley hath his seat or seats for his house or houses in the Church of Bingley … In the second Stall, … Daniell Broadley de West Morton for Butlers farme, … have auncient seats… Bingley was a center for Puritan sympathizers and because of their persecution prior to the Civil War many of them emigrated to New England.
2. William Bradley
William’s wife Alice Pritchard was born about 1620 in England. Her parents were Roger Pritchard (1588 – 1670) and Elizabeth Prudden (1620 – 1715). Alice died in 1692 in New Haven, New Haven, CT.
Immigrant William Bradley (1610-1691) was born and raised in England. His parentage is debated. [Particularly Daniel Bradley and Elizabeth Atikinson, or his brother Sir William Bradley and Joanna Waddington] Birthdates of 27 Jan 1610 (christening 08 Jul 1621) and of 04 Sep 1619 are both listed for him in the West Yorkshire area mentioned above. Definitive birth information is sought.
Tradition says that William Bradley was a friend of Cromwell’s and a major in the Parliamentary Army, “but wanted to live where he could worship according to his own belief”. This from a letter found in an attic. It is documented that William Bradley immigrated in 1637 as part of the Davenport-Eaton Expedition. This group was led by Puritans Theophilus Eaton and William Davenport and it left England in May of 1637 and arrived at Boston Harbor in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in June of 1637.
When it became obvious that there wasn’t a suitable place to settle in Massachusetts, a party was sent to inspect the Quinnipiac area in August of 1637. In March of 1638 the entire party left Massachusetts to travel to their new home in the Quinnipiac area at which they arrived on 24 April 1638. The Quinnipiac Indians were friendly and willingly sold land to the new English settlers. they reserved hunting and fishing rights there for themselves. The Davenport-Eaton Company bought the land that stretches from the coast of what is now Milford to Guilford Connecticut and inland to include what is now Bethany, Cheshire, Meriden, Orange, Prospect, Wallingford, and Woodbridge for 12 coats and 12 spoons and 12 hatchetts and 12 hoes and 2 dozen knives and 12 ”porengers” and 4 cases of French knives. In a later agreement the Indians received a reservation of more than a thousand acres in the East Haven-Morris Cove area. The settlers and Indians remained on friendly terms. The settlers lived in shelters dug into the ground (a far cry from what they were accustomed to in their former affluent lives) during the 3-year building period.
In June of 1639 the church was organized. This was why they immigrated in the first place. They voted that the Scriptures provided “a perfect rule” for the governing of men. In Oct 1639 the civil government was organized. In 1641 they moved into the completed settlement that had come to be called New Haven. In May of 1643 the colonies of Plymouth and Massachusetts and Connecticut and New Haven sent representatives to Boston to create The New England Confederation for mutual defense and benefit. William Bradley and every man there took the Oath of Fidelity in August of 1644. In 1645 William Bradley was listed as canoe viewer and fence viewer. William Bradley lived in New Haven, CT in what is now North Haven and owned much land on the west side of the Quinnipiac (East) River about 9 miles north of present-day New Haven. William Bradley married Alice Prichard (1624-1692) at Springfield, MA in 1645 and they settled at New Haven, CT and raised 8 children there.
By 1648, William was followed by his step-mother, Elizabeth Sheaffe, and her little children, Ellen, Daniel, Joshua, Nathan, and Stephen.
William Bradley was a Townsman for 1656 and 1657 and 1658 and perhaps longer. William Bradley was Deputy to the General Court in 1676. His will was dated 22 June 1683 and his estate inventory was done in May of 1692.
3. Daniel BROADLEY (See his page)
8 Apr 1635 – Danyell’s son Daniell immigrated and embarked on the “Elizabeth” of London.
5. Michael Broadley
Michael’s wife Elizabeth Stones was born about 1630 in Bingley, Yorkshire, England
6. Samuell BROADLEY (See his page)
8. Marie Broadley
Marie’s husband Thomas Leaver was born about 1615 in Somerset, England. His parents were Thomas Leaver and [__?__]. Thomas died 26 Dec 1683 in Rowley, Essex, Mass
10. Ellen Bradley
Ellen’s husband John Alling was born 22 Nov 1629 in England. John died 26 March 1691 in Guilford, New Haven, CT.
His name may have originally been “Allen”, but it is clear that he went by “Alling” after he immigrated to America and settled in the New Haven Colony there. John married at Guilford or New Haven in 1652 to Ellen Bradley (1632-1700) and they had 8 children. John took the Oath of Fidelity on 04 April 1654 and was on the 04 April 1658 Freeman list. John Alling “was an energetic and successful planter and stood well among the early settlers of the colony”. It is unclear whether these Allings lived at Guilford, New Haven, CT or at New Haven, New Haven, CT or if they moved from one to the other. John’s will was dated 06 May 1689 and the estate inventory was 26 March 1691. He left land to both of his sons. Son John Alling (1663-1717) received a farm and home on Homes Race. Son Samuel Alling (1670-1744) received the family homestead (farm and house) and was to care for his mother there. Records indicate that mother Ellen Bradley Alling (1632-1700) and son Samuel Alling (1670-1744) both died at Hampden (previously a part of New Haven, New Haven, CT), New Haven, CT and it is unclear if that is where the family homestead was or if they moved there after husband/father John Alling’s (1629-1691) death.
13. Nathan Bradley
Nathaniel’s first wife Esther (Hester) Griswold was born 8 May 1648 in Bingley, Yorkshire, England. Her parents were Michael Griswold and Ann Adams. Esther died 21 Aug 1694 in Madison, New Haven County, CT.
John’s second wife Hannah Munson was born 1 Jun 1648. Her parents were Thomas Munson and Johannah [__?__]. She first married 2 Mar 1667 Age: 18 to Joseph Tuttle. Hannah died 20 Nov 1695 in Guilford, CT.
John’s third wife Rachel Holton was born 1640 in Northampton, Hampshire, Mass. Her parents were William Holton (1610 – 1691) and Mary Winche (1612 – 1691). She first married 10 Oct 1671 in Northampton Age: 31 to Thomas Strong. Rachel died in 1714 in Madison, CT was the widow of Thomas Strong.
“Mr. Nathan Bradley was one of the first settlers of New Haven, he built his house about two and a half miles eastward of Madison Church and near the Killingworth line. He was but a lad when he came from England he intended to land at New Haven but was obliged to land at Saybrook and come across the wilderness to New Haven then being in settlement at that time.
Mr. Bradley was quite a hunter and was the first white person to discover the source of the Hammonassett River which originates in a pond still called ‘Nathan’s Pond’. Mr. Bradley lived to an advanced age and he killed several hundred bears while residing in this town. Mr. Bradley in his old age went out to see a friend who lived about a mile northerly from the present meetinghouse in Madison.
On his way he met a bear and her cubs. He endeavored to ride around her but as he moved, the bear moved, and when he stopped, she stopped and sitting on her haunches presented an undaunted front and determined to oppose his further passage. Mr. Bradley in his old age being somewhat childish, was obliged to turn back, shed tears that he had killed so many bears should be obliged to turn back on one of them.”
From the “Connecticut Historical Collections” by John Warner Barber published in 1836 and now out of print.
Adjoining the Murray gravestones in the Old Hammonassett Cemetery is a curious marker, which is apparently that of Nathan Bradley. This marker consists of rough natural stone, on which is crudely cut or chiseled “75- N.IL-17 13″ in three lines parallel. The New England Genealogical ~ Historical Register, Vol 57 states that Nathan Bradley was born in 1638 and died in 1713 and the letters N.B. for his name.
14. Capt. Steven Broadley
Stephen’s wife Hannah Smith was born 1642 in New Haven, New Haven, CT. Her parents were Nehemiah SMITH and Sarah Ann BOURNE. Hannah died in 1676 in Guilford, New Haven, CT.
