First Generation
1. John BRADBURY . Born around 1640, Saddleworth Historical Society sources describe John as “of Lee Green and Fairbanks”. John probably died in February 1720 as he was buried on 1/3/1720 in St Chad, Saddleworth. The burial entry records the deceased’s abode as Fairbanks so we are confidant it relates to this John Bradbury. John married Mary BUCKLEY , daughter of Henry BUCKLEY and an unknown spouse. Mary was born 24/9/1654 in Saddleworth and baptized 29/10/1654 in St Chad. She probably died in May 1731 as she was buried 29/5/1731 in St Chad. Again, the burial entry records the deceased’s abode as Fairbanks. They had the following children: (1) James [ 2 ] . (2) Thomas , born about 1691. (3) Sarah , born about 1694. (4) John [ 3 ]
