Hello,

From 1853 shipping record:

James 32 Farm Labourer Kelton ? Cambridgeshire John & Sarah living at Kelton ? Cambridgeshire Methodist Neither None Good None Paid £4 for self and family
Elizabeth 37 - Kelton ? Cambridgeshire Jeremiah & Martha Spillman both dead Methodist Both

(Crick) Maria 14 Nursemaid Kelton ? Cambridgeshire a mother Elizth. Bradford on board Father dead Methodist Can read

Charles 25 Labourer Kelton ? Cambridgeshire John & Sarah living at Kelton ? ChofE Neither
Hannah 22 - Little Purlow ? Suffolk Joseph & Harriet Chapman mother living at Great Bradley Suffolk ChofE Can read


I can't make sense of 'Kelton' and it's not Linton.

:2fun: Must have been the accent. It's actually Carlton. :D

And 'Purlow' must be Thurlow.

This explains Maria CRICK:

Marriages Dec 1849
Bradford James Linton 14 153
Crick Elizabeth Linton 14 153 ** Married William Crick in 1835

James Bradford
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
christening: 29 Nov 1818 CARLTON CUM WILLINGHAM,​CAMBRIDGE,​ENGLAND
parents: John Bradford,​ Sarah

Elizabeth Spellman
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
christening: 26 Mar 1815 CARLTON CUM WILLINGHAM,​CAMBRIDGE,​ENGLAND
parents: Jeremiah Spellman,​ Martha


Marriages Jun 1848
Bradford Charles Risbridge 12 561
Chapman Anna Risbridge 12 561


I'd like a look up please for the families in 1841 and 1851.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

I think St. is Gt. for Great Bradley. Sarah age 60 is correctly not shown as a widow. According to shipping record spouse is John and he was still alive in 1853. The children match:

BRADFORD James 32
BRADFORD Elizabeth 37
BRADFORD Eliza 2
BRADFORD Elizabeth bv inft

BRADFORD Charles 25
BRADFORD Hannah 22
BRADFORD Harriet 4
BRADFORD Mary 2
BRADFORD Male bv inft

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

As you say, can't be sure about 1841. Should be John not James. At least it has Sarah not born in county to rule it in.

Possible marriage:

John Bradford
England, Marriages, 1538–1973
marriage: 29 Nov 1815 Carlton Cum Willingham,​Cambridge,​England
spouse: Sarah Carter


Deaths
5537/1882 BRADFORD JAMES - JOHN - SARAH - CROOKWELL
5156/1904 BRADFORD ELIZABETH - JEREMIAH - MARTHA - CROOKWELL

Deaths
5403/1908 BRADFORD HANNAH - JOSEPH - HARRIET - GOULBURN
13356/1910 BRADFORD CHARLES - JOHN - SARAH - GOULBURN

All parents match the shipping record.

Regards,

Dave

Baptism for James in 1818 and this one for George:

George Bradford
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
christening: 20 May 1821 CARLTON CUM WILLINGHAM,​CAMBRIDGE,​ENGLAND
parents: John Bradford,​ Sarah

so it's probably the right one for 1841 with John recorded as James.
