The Bradlee's were among the Boston Brahmin Society of Boston and they married into other Brahmin families such as the Putnams, and the Crowninshield family; Benjamin Crowninshield Bradlee's second great grandmother, on his grandmother's side was Caroline Choate of the Boston Brahmin Choate family. Samuel Bradlee was the grandson of Nathan Bradley, the Bradlee ancestor, who was born in Dorchester, Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts on 1631, changed the family name to Bradlee. Samuel did so because he was running to be Constable of Dorchester and there were too many Bradleys and became confusing.

Origin[]

In the Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, it says that the name Bradley comes from the hamlet that is in the borough of Huddersfield, England] which lies three miles north east of that town. Nowadays it is a large market town in the borough of Kirkless, West Yorkshire, England. In the Domesday Book it was recorded that there were two Manors in the hamlet of Bradley. The progenitor of the Bradley family as well as the Staveley, De Hebden and Thoresby families is Dolfin, Lord of Cumbria or some sources that say Earl of Cumbria was the son of Gospatrick, who was at one point Earl of Northumbria and then the 1st Earl of Dunbar (?-aft. 1073); who is also the ancestor of the Earls of Dunbar. Dolphin Fitzgospatric de Bradley, Lord of Cumbria was born about 1067 in England and died in 1100 Northumbria, England and the oldest Bradley ancestor is Duncan, Lay Abbot of Dunkeld who was born in 910 and died in 965. Gospatrick was born about 1040 to Maldred, King of Cumbria, Lord of Allerdale and Lady Edith of Northumbria or in old English Aeldgyth. Maldred was born about 1010 to Crinan, Thane or Lay Abbot of Dunkel and Princess Bethoc of Scotland who was the daughter of Malcolm II of Scotland]; Maldred died in 1045. Crinan of Dunkeld Earl of Atholl was also Thane/Lay Abbot of Dunkeld was born in 978 to Duncanand was killed in battle in 1045. Crinan’s father was Duncan who was born about 945 and was the Lay Abbot of Dunkeld and referred to as the Lord of the Isles. Records of Gilbert Marlow Genealogy states that the senior branch of the kin of St. Columba (521 AD - 597 AD) was a direct descendant of Conall Gulbanwas the founder and first King of Tir Chonaill in the 5th century of Ireland. He was also the son of Niall of the Nine Hostages who was the 126th High King of Ireland; his descendants would go on to create the O’Neill dynasty of Ireland. King Niall was a direct descendant of Conn of the Hundred Battles, 110th High King of Ireland who was a direct descendant of Hermon or Erimon, 2nd High King of Ireland whose parents were Milesius, King of Iberia or what we know call Spain and his wife Princess Scota of Egypt, daughter of Psamtik I, 1st Pharoh of Egypt of the 26th dynasty. The native Irish race are a descendant of the Scythians were are a descendant of the ancient Israelites. The ancient Irish genealogies states that King Milesius was a descendant of Fenius Farsaidh or Fenius Farsa, King of Skythia who was the son of Roath, son of Magog son of Japheth son of Noah. Therefor the Irish race are of Jewish descent in their paternal line.

According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle MS E, in 1092 there was a Dolfin of Carlisle ruler of that town, who was expelled from. William Rufus, King of England by an army of his. Once the army had reached Carlisle, William Rufus built a castle which he garrisoned with his army. William then went south to get people to settle on his land. Six years later in 1098. Ranulf le Meschin, 3rd Earl of Chester who would become the future Earl of Chester, was in charge of that area. Most historians agree Dolfin was the son of Earl Gospatric, however there is one historian William E. Kapell who says that this is not true. It would make sense though because he was placed in the region by Malcolm III, King of Scotland. It is this Dolfin who took the surname de Bradealy. Though there is no record of Dolphins wife, he did have four children. Utchred, who took the surname Fitz Dolfin was born in 1099 in Bingley, West Riding, Yorkshire, England; Torfin was the second born son who was born in 1102; Swain Fitz Dolfin who was born in 1004; and Dolfin Fitz Dolfin who was born in 1107. The last born son Dolfin had six sons and one daughter who all used the surname Bradeley. All of his children were born in the town of Fixby, England. His first born son was William de Bradley who was born in 1135. His second son was Swaine de Bradley who was born in 1137. His third child and only daughter was Gia de Bradley who was born in 1139. Thorfin, the third son, was born in 1141. Robert de Bradley, the fourth son was born in 1143. Richard de Bradeley the fifth son was born in 1145 and Henry de Bradley, the sixth and last son and child was born in 1147.

The Bradley families of modern day UK and US are descended from Dolfin’s last child Richard who seemed to have been born in the hamlet of Fixby, which was originally part of the town Huddersfield mentioned above in the county of West Yorkshire, England. He also used the surname de Broedelegh but changed the spelling to de Bradelay. The Bradleys were an early family of England and weren’t that successful in anything except Richards third great grandson who was John de Brodelegh who was Constable of Ovenden. He was born about 1380 in Hailfax, England and died on 3 Jul 1456 in Bradfordshire, England. Richard’s son John de Brodelegh was born in 1180 also in Fixby, West Yorkshire, England and his son William de Bordelegh was born in 1210 also in West Riding, Yorkshire, England and died on 23 May 1275 in the same place. It was not until Richard’s son William who was born in 1240 in Hailfax, West Riding, Yorkshire, England who seemed to be the first in the Bradley genealogy to hold an occupation; that occupation was Constable of Ovenden. In the 2011 Cencus there was a population of 12,251 people so I can only imagine how small it was in the 13th century.

Constables in England[]

Ovenden and three constables of Halifax, England. The first constable of Ovenden was William de Brodelegh who was born in 1240 in Halifax, England; the second constable of Ovenden was John de Bradeleay who was born in 1320 in Halifax, West Riding, England and died on 3 Jul 1356 in the same place. The third Bradley was Sir John de Brodelegh who was Constable of Hipperholm and Ovenden. He was born about 1380 and died on 3 Jul 1456 in West Riding, England.There were three Bradleys who were Constables of Halifax, a town in West Yorkshire, England. The first was Henry de Brodelegh who was born in 1345 in Hailfaxx West Riding, Yorkshire who was the son of John de Bradeley (1320-1356) and died on 29 Sep 1402 in England. The second was his grandson William de Brodelegh who was born in 1420 in Halifax, West Riding, England to Sir John de Brodelegh (c.1380-1456) and died on 17 Aug 1481 in the same place. The third was Thomas de Bordelegh who was born about 1450 in the same place and died in Yorkshire, England. The occupations of the next three generations are not known, but I do know of their birth years and death years.[1]

John Bradley was born in 1475 in Sheriff Hutton, West Riding, Yorkshire, England to Thomas de Bradlelegh (c.1450-?) and married Agneta Hynscliff who was born in 1480 in Brooseley, Shropshire, England. Their son William Bradley was born in 1505 in the same place and died on 22 Dec 1577 in Bradford, West Riding, Yorkshire, England; he married Agnes Margartes who was born in 1573 in Reeden, Northamptonshire, England and died on 1 Feb 1603, Bradford, West Riding, England. It was their son John Bradley who was born on 28 Jul 1578 in Kildwick, Yorkshire, England and died on 1 Jun 1642 who immigrated in 1630 to Massachusetts Bay Colony, North America and was the first Bradley to settle in Dorchester, which would become a village just outside of Boston. He married Katherine Bexwicke who was born in 1574 in Manchester, Lancanshire, England and died on 21 Sep 1643 in Louth, Lincolnshire, England. Her parents are not known.

Arrival and Colonial Life in America[]

Their son John Bradley was born in 1605 in Aston-under-Lyne, Lancashire, England and died in Jun 1642 in Dorchester, Massachusetts Bay Colony. He most likely immigrated in 1630 to the New World. He married on 9 Feb 1629 at St. Michael, Macclesfield, Cheshire, England to Katherine Bostocke who was born on 14 Nov 1610 in London, England] and died on 21 Apr 1663 in Dorchester, Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony North America. Their child Nathan would be the first Bradley born in America and their children would be the creation of the Bradley family in America.

Nathan Bradley[]

Nathan Bradley was born in 1631 in Dorchester, Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony and died on 26 Jul 1701 in the same place. He married on 17 Jul 1666 in the same place that he died to Mary Evans who was born on 19 Nov 1640 in Dorchester to Richard Evans (1613-1662) and Mary Morgan (1610-c.1673) and also died in Dorchester. After his marriage the first record that we have of him was a purchase for 2 acres of land and a house of the Great Lots in Dorchester. He was the first Bradley in America to have an occupation on record which was that of Town Sexton of Dorchester in 1668. His job was to ring the bell of the meeting house and to clean the meeting house of Dorchester as well as to carry water for baptism; and as long as there was a bell to ring, he was paid 4 pounds a year.

Richard Evans was born in 1613 in Chiswick, England and died in 1662 in Dorchester, Massachusetts Bay Colony. He married in 1641 in Dorchester to Mary Morgan who was born in 1610 and died about 1673. The surname Evans and Morgan are both of Welsh origin and Evans means “son of Evan” and the Greek spelling is Evangelos. In the old Welsh language the v was pronounced as an f and was a patronymic name or an original name of Wals so it had “ab” or “ap” in front of it. The name Evans in old Welsh was spelled “ab or ap Ifan.” There is also a similarity of the old Welsh name Ifan and the Slavic name Ivan. The name Evans is popular not only in Wales but is also numerous in Cornwall, England].

Nathan Bradley, Jr.[]

Nathan and Mary’s son was also named Nathan who was born on 12 Mar 1674 in Dorchester and died on 13 Dec 1750 in the same place. He unfortunately drowned in Dorchester, but before that he was a merchant and helped to build a wharf on Wale’s creek. He married two times. Firstly he was married by a Rev. Danforth on 2 Jan 1695 in Dorchester. She was born on 22 Sep 1670 in Dorchester to Eleazer Clapp Hawes (1645-1676) and Ruth Haynes (1646-1672) and died on 25 Mar 1701 in the same place. Nathan married secondly on 3 Mar 1701 in Boston to Lydian Harding who we are descended from. She was born on 22 Dec 1684 inBraintree, Massachusetts] to John Harding (1650-1718) and Hannah Long (1657-1690) and died on 28 Mar 1752 in Dorchester, Massachusetts. Lydia’s father John Harding, Jr. was born on 2 Jun 1650 in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony to John Harding, Sr. (1624-1682) and Hannah Hurst (c.1627-1690) and died on 17 May 1718 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. John Harding Sr. was born in Oct 1624 in Somerset], England and died on 31 Oct 1682 in Estham, Barnstable County, Massachusetts. He married Hannah Hurst who was born about 1627 and died on 7 Jan 1690 in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts. John Harding, Jr.’s wife Hannah Long was born on 29 Dec 1657 in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts to Joseph Long (c.1620-bef.1651) and Mary Lane (1598-1671) and died on 7 Jan 1690 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.

Samuel Bradlee[]

The second born son who was the third child out of nine children from Nathan Bradley and Lydia Hardin was Samuel Bradlee and made a name for himself by getting elected Constable of Dorchester in 1753. However at that time in Boston, there were too many people with the surname Bradley, who spelled their name with ey so he changed it to ee, simply because people were getting his name confused with other Bradleys. Samuel was born on 5 Oct 1707 in Dorchester and died on 7 Jul 1768 in Dorchester. He married on 11 Feb 1730 in Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony to Mary Andrus who was born in 1700 to possibly John Andrews (1685-1758) and Margaret Lord (1687-1769) and died on 20 May 1769.

Boston Tea Party Participants[]

Four sons and one daughter of Samual Bradlee and Mary Andrus, Sarah Bradlee who were all born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, participated in the Boston Tea Party which was a political and mercantile protest by the Sons of Liberty on the night of 16 Dec 1773; it was to protest against the English Tea Act which allowed the British East India Company to sell tea from China in the American colonies. Their way of protesting was to dress up like Native American Indians and in the middle of the night, they boarded the British ships that were in the harbour and dumped the tea that was one those ships into the Boston Harbor. Those sons and one daughter were Sarah Bradlee who was born on 24 Dec 1740 in Dorchester and died on 9 Nov 1835 in Medford, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. At her brother Nathan’s house, along with her other brothers and her husband John Fulton, Sarah was responsible for dressing up her siblings and her husband and taking off the paint to make them like Native American Indians in secret and because of this, she was later dubbed “The Mother of the Boston Tea Party by a local newspaper.

David Bradlee[]

Capt. David Bradlee in the Boston Massacre

Sarah’s brother David Bradlee was born on 24 Nov 1742 and died on 10 Mar 1811; his death place is not known. David Bradlee was born on 24 Nov 1742 and died on 10 Mar 1811; his death place is not known. He started out in life as a simple tailor and took part in three events in Boston. The first one was when he was present at a riot that broke out on 22 Feb 1770 when a Customs officer named Ebenezer Richardson shot into a crowd of boys and young men, and ended up killing little Christopher Seider, who were mobing Richard’s house, which ended in court. The second was the little known event of the taring of George Gailer that took place on 28 Oct 1769, which David Bradlee took part of and afterwards, Mr. Gailer, who was a sailor sued Bradlee, which also ended in court. Robert Treat Paine ended up taking notes on Bradlee testimone: Windows broke when I got there. I saw 3 or 4 Stones come out of the Window. I saw one or two Men in the Room with Guns in their hands. R put a Gun on edge of Window. I heard the Gun, and run to the back of the house. R. clapt the gun at me.” However, David Bradlee had connections to have Mr. John Adams himself to represent him as his lawyer. The word clapt means that R, which is used to refer to Ebenezer Richardson, fired a black at David Bradlee to scare him away. The third and last was probably the most well known event in American history, the Boston Massacre which happened on 5 Mar 1770. One of the people that were there and witnessed this unfortunate act was Benjamin Burdick, Jr. who was Constable of the town house watch. Because of Burdick’s testimony of the trail afterwards, we know what David Bradlee did. After the first round of fire, Mr. Burdick ran up the street to get help and the two men that came were “Dr. Jos. Gardiner, and David Bradley, came down with me to the corpses, and as we were stopping to take them up, the soldiers presented at us again. I then saw an officer passing busily behind them. We carried off the dead without regarding the soldiers.” This narrative is from Boston’s “Short Narrative of the Horrid Massacre,” which I found on the blog, “Boston, 1775; History, analysis, and unabashed gossip about the start of the American Revolution in Massachusetts.”

The British soldiers killed the one black man that was there. As Dr. Gardiner and Mr. Bradlee were picking up the African American man, Crispus Attuck, to carry him away, the soldiers were about to fire again, but Capt. Thomas Preston came, pushed up their guns and said “Stop firing, do not fire.” It seems that David Bradlee was going to help the black man whether he was going to be shot at or not. David was a member of the Sons of Liberty with his brother Josiah Bradlee who both later served and fought in the American Revolution. David reached the rank of Captain and Josiah held the rank of Private. He is buried at Central Burying Ground in Dorchester, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, USA. He was married by Rev. Philip Payson on 22 Mar 1764 to Sarah Watts who was born in 1745 to a Judge Watts and died on 16 Feb 1806 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, USA.

Josiah Bradlee[]

Josiah Bradlee was born on 24 Mar 1754 and died on 2 Oct 1798 in Boston. He was a private in the American Revolutionary War. One day he was called on by a man who ended up becoming a fifth great-uncle of mine and war hero, Major General Israel Putnam. One of the general’s nieces, Hannah Putnam, went to see her uncle at the Battle of Bunker Hill, which in today’s world When the time came for her to leave, the general called on Pvt. Josiah Bradlee to escort her back to her home, which he had to go through enemy lines. He was also a member of the Sons of Liberty along with his brother, Capt. David. Josiah was married by Rev. Dr. Stillman on 7 Aug 1777 in Boston to Hannah Putnam. She was born in 1758 in Boston to Joseph Putnam (1714-1788) and Sarah Urann (1716-bef.1765) and died on 4 May 1793 in Boston. Hannah’s father Joseph, who was a chairmaker by trade was born in Salem Village, Massachusetts into the Salem Putnam family who were heavily involved in the Salem Witchcraft Trials. Joseph’s parents were first cousins, Capt. Bartholomew Putnam (1688-1723) who died at sea and Mary Putnam (1691-?). Joseph Putnam was a two time descendant of John Putnamm, the immigrant (1580-1662) and his wife Priscilla Gouold (1586-1662).

Thomas Bradlee[]

Samuel Bradlee and Mary Andrus son Thomas Bradlee was the seventh child born and the fourth son. He was born on 4 Dec 1744 and died in Oct 1805. He married on 28 Jan 1765 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts to Margaret Smith. She was born about 1745 and died on 12 Aug 1821 in Boston. Not only was she buried at the Central Burying Ground in Boston. Not only did Thomas participate in the Boston Tea Party with his brothers, but he was a freemason at the St. Andrew’s Lodge in Boston. He was also a member of the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics Association in Boston. Thomas is also buried at the Central Burying Ground in Boston, Tomb No. 85.

Nathaniel Bradlee[]

Nathaniel Bradlee, Thomas’s brother was born on 16 Feb 1746 and died on 8 May 1813 in Boston. His baptism date is not known, but he was baptised by Rev. Bowman in Boston. He married on 28 Apr 1769 in Boston to Ann Dulopp. She was born on 12 Oct 1748 in Boston to George Dunlap (1728-1771) and Ann Carr (1728-?) and died on 4 Aug 1821 in Boston. She is buried at Central Burying Ground in Boston where her husband, Nathaniel is buried. In 1771 he built a house on Hollis Street and not only participated in the Boston Tea Party, but he was part of the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics Association as his brother Thomas was. According the websites with information and lists of the Boston Tea Party participants, the Bradlee family is the only family that had five family members who participated in the event.

Sarah Bradlee[]

Sarah Bradlee was an active member of the Daughters of Liberty and dubbed the "Mother of the Boston Tea Party." She took part in the American Revolutionary War three times. The first time was in June 1755 after the Battle of Bunker hill where she acted as a nurse and became in charge a group of woman that she organized to help the wounded soldiers after the battle.

The seconded time was in March 1776 at the end of the war where she volunteered to dispatch a letter from John Brooks who was the Mayor of Medford, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, North America at the time to Gen. George Washington who was in the frontlines of the war in Charleston. Not only did she execute delivering letter through enemy lines, she came back through enemy lines as well. The third time was during the Siege of Boston where she and her husband helped the American troops by using their own ship to help provide them with wood and fuel.

There is a play written about her entitled Sarah Bradlee Fulton, Patriot: A Colonial Drama in Three Acts.

American Revolutionary War Soldiers[]

Like his brother Capt. David Bradlee, Josiah Bradlee also fought in the American Revolutionary War with the rank of Private and participated in the Boston Tea Party. One day he was called on by a man who ended up becoming a fifth great-uncle of mine and war hero, Major General Israel Putnam. One of the general’s nieces, Hannah Putnam, went to see her uncle at the Battle of Bunker Hill, which in today’s world When the time came for her to leave, the general called on Pvt.

Joseph Putnam was a two time descendant of John Putnam, the immigrant (1580-1662) and his wife Priscilla Gould (1586-1662).

Boston Brahmins[]

Josiah Bradlee, Jr.[]

Josiah Bradlee, Jr. who was the first born son and second child of Josiah Bradlee, Sr. and Hannah Putnam was born on 7 Mar 1778 in Boston and died on 6 Jan 1860 in the same place. On 26 Oct 1802 Josiah Bradlee, Jr. He married his first wife on 26 Nov 1802 in Medford, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA who was Lucy Hall whom he had most of his children with. Lucy was born on 28 Nov 1782 in Medford to the Hon. Ebenezer Hall (1748-1831) and Martha Jones (1750-1835) and died on 3 Mar 1816 also in Medford. In 1850 he was a merchant living in Boston with a real estate value of $40,000. He was the founder of the whaling firm Josiah Bradlee & Company and owned a ship called the Spermo. Josiah’s agent was George Aurthur Simmons, Esq. sold to Josiah whale oil and candles. Josiah was married a second time, by the Reverend Nathaniel Frothing to Joanna S. Frothingham. The first baby for adoption (BFA) was in 1822 when the managers of this program “discovered that a four-year-old child who had been in the asylum for a year did not “come within the number of those for whom this charity was designed.”

The man who solved this problem was Josiah Bradlee “a wealthy Dorochester merchant, and his second wife, Joannah Frothingham Bradlee, sister of two BFA board members, offered to adopt the girl.” In the book, Maritime History of Massachusetts says of Josiah, “Josiah Bradlee, the most extensive advertiser in the Federal press, spending in his lifetime, from 1778 to 1860, but on night outside of Boston, and that at Nahant, a merchant of who it was said that if he sent a chingle afloat on the ebb tide bearing a pebble, it would return on the flood, freighted with a silver dollar!” At the height of his career he had grossed a net worth of $500,000 which in 2017 was equal to the amount of about $13.5 million. Josiah had a residence on Long Wharf No. 6 on House Winter Street in Boston, Massachusetts. Josiah’s firm was described ast “one of the wealthiest commissions housed in the city.”

James Bowdoin Bradlee I[]

Josiah Bradlee, Jr. and Lucy Hall’s second born son and fourth and last child born was James Bodowin Bradlee. He was born on 10 Oct 1813 in Boston and died on 26 Jan 1872 in Boston. At the beginning of his life he worked for his fathers shipping firm Josiah Bradlee & Company and wrote letters in 1835 from Russia and elsewhere in Europe. Though he never owned any ships, he always held partnerships with them. In 1861 he was living in Massachusetts, USA. In 1880 he was living in Marblehead, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA and from 1917 to 1918 he was living in Brookline, Massachusetts. He was apparently an avid gardener. His home address was 34 Beacon Street, Boston, Massachusetts and one year he spent $5,000 on indoor plumbing and central heating for his house. The reason why he spent that much was because in those days, pipes were lead and had to be constantly replaced. In 1840 he paid $245 to the portrait artist Francis Alexander for a portrait of his wife. In 1872 his personal income was $600 which he was taxed by the federal government to support the war effort. In that same year his net worth was $522,000, which back in those days was a lot of money; and $318,000 of that money was invested in real estate and $66,000 in mill stocks. In 1866 he had also purchased a large child’s tea set in three different colors and monogrammed M.M. B. This goes to show what he would do to make his daughter happy and what type of father he was to her.

Frederic Hall Bradlee[]

Frederic Hall Bradlee was the son of Josiah Bradlee, Jr and Lucy Hall and was born on 18 Sep 1807 in Boston and died on 14 Aug 1886 in Medford, Massachusetts. In 1827 he had graduated from Harvard College and was married by Rev. E. S. Gannett on 12 Apr 1831 in Medford to Lucretia Wainwright. Even though at one point he had “a fortune about $300,000,” he became the first Bradlee millionaire. Frederic had purchased the two houses at 11 and 13 Commonwealth Avenue in Back Bay, Boston in 1860.[2] Lucretia’s grandfather was a prosperous tobacco farmer who came over from England and married Elizabeth Mayhew, the daughter of the clergyman, Rev. Dr. Jonathan Mayhew (1720-1766) and Elizabeth Clarke (1733-1777). The minister famously coined the phrase “No taxation without representation.” Elizabeth Clarke’s father, grandfather, great grandfather and great, great grandfather were all doctors and all named John Clarke. Her paternal immigrant ancestor was Dr. John Clarke who was born on 31 Mar 1590 in Little Paxton, Huntingdon, England and died on 24 Mar 1697 in Plymouth, Massachusetts; and was the first doctor of New England. He married Elizabth Saltonstall (1595-1680) who was the daughter of the famed Sir Richard Saltonstanll, Lord Mayor of London, MP (152-1601), whose son was Sir Richard Saltonstall, Lord of the Manor of Ledsham and a signer of the original charter of Massachusetts Bay Colony.
