Generation: 7

  1. 7.  Capt. Thomas Bradbury Descendancy chart to this point (6.Wymond6, 5.Anne5, 4.Henry4, 3.Thomas3, 2.Agnes2, 1.Thomas1) was born before 28 Feb 1611; died on 16 Mar 1695 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 28 Feb 1611, Wicken Bonhunt, Essex, England

    Notes:

    Arrived in 1635; first at York, Maine, then in Salisbury by 1640. He was initially a business agent for Ferdinando Gorges, to whom it has been said he was related. Obviously the beneficiary of a fine education, he held many public offices in his long life, and numerous samples of his excellent handwriting have survived to the present day.

    Over time he has had several descents from the Plantagenet kings attributed to him, but each has been disproved. Nevertheless, his known ancestry extends far back into the Middle Ages. One of his great-uncles was an Archbishop of Canterbury; a 3XG-uncle, also named Thomas Bradbury, was a mayor of London. As Marshal K. Kirk (citation details below) wrote in 2007, "Unlike most immigrants to seventeenth-century New England, Thomas Bradbury's ancestry rates an entire book. Given his social standing as a member of the gentry and his business dealings with Sir Fernando Gorges, it would stand to reason that a royal descent from a Plantagenet king should be provable for Thomas Bradbury. Many of his siblings and aunts and uncles married people with such descent."

    John Brooks Threfall's The Ancestry of Thomas Bradbury (1611-1695) and His Wife Mary (Perkins) Bradbury (1615-1700) of Salisbury, Massachusetts, of which we have the second of three editions, traces for him a descent from Charlemagne through the Marmions of Checkingden, Oxfordshire, which seems to us sufficiently well-argued. But whether or not this descent is valid, the sheer number and variety of Thomas Bradbury's proven medieval forebears seems to us to earn him the title of "gateway ancestor" for his descendant JDM.

    Thomas married Mary Perkins about 1636. Mary (daughter of John Perkins and Judith Gater) was born before 3 Sep 1615; died on 20 Dec 1700 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
