I am trying to trace my Bradshaw line back as far as possible and have come across my x5 g grandfather another James Bradshaw. He married a Sarah Nicholson and was probably born c 1780. He had a son, Samuel Bradshaw b 1805 d 1847.
I would like to find the origins of the Bradshaw family in Sheffield/Yorkshire.
If anyone could point me in the right direction or have any information about James Bradshaw would be much appreciated.
James, you may find something of interest on Bradfield Archives on line (free). There are over 200 records to Bradshaw and 5 of them are for a James in the first half of the 19 th century.. Several others are for J Bradshaw.
