Ancestreee Trees.

On Ancestree I found a tree had a Matthew Bradford born 1770 in Little Thurlow, Suffolk. He had a brother Patrick, William and John, all sons of Thomas and Anne Bradford. The baptism date of William was given on this tree and the other 3 was just a year of birth.

I went to the Suffolk Lowestoft RO today and the only Bradford baptism I found in that parish was William. No record of the other 3 baptised there even though the tree said they were all born in Lt Thurlow. I checked Great Thurlow as well and found nothing. So where the idea of William having 3 siblings came from is a mystery unless they were baptised elsewhere.

I can find no later record of a Patrick Bradford anywhere. Shows that many Ancestreee trees need a health warning. :biggrin:
