The Family Tree

Bradfield Roots!

Although the research in this website leads to my personal ancestry and genetics, it has become a detective story and ‘spiders’ web. We have identified and researched hundreds of direct ancestors, and thousands of related individuals, as well as other ‘acquaintances’, who have caught our attention, and so whilst I am the product of my personal ancestry, many of the individuals in my ancestry, are also part of many others personal histories too.

Below is my simplified direct ancestor chart.

Ancestors Generation by Generation

My known ancestors, with links to any research information discovered.

I also include a reference number for each person, first figure is the generation number, followed by a series of ‘1’s or ‘2’s, depending on whether they are a paternal (1) or maternal (2) ancestor. (This gets more complicated the further back we go)!
