  • Notes 
    • George's estate was valued at 2,800 pounds (a rather large sum).
      It's hard to say what the story is on George. The year of his birth, give or take one, can be fixed by his tombstone and is consistent with his age at death (about 74). His year of death is indisputable (despite what his tombstone may have said about dying in 1746). However, here is a man that did not marry until 50 years of age, and fathered children until the age of 66!
      It is probable that George was born in England. We know that a George Bradley left London for Barbados in 1784, making him about 17 or 18 years old. This was an appropriate age for suchan event, since he was bound to a master for three years.
      A birth record for a George Bradley in Scamblesby, Lincoln, England on 29 July 1666 has been found. This would be a perfect birth time for our George; however,we have little else to goon. The parents of this England George were George and Ann Bradley. He may also have had a brother Nathaniel, born 23 April 1664.
