Nicholas Bradbury

1594 - 1624

Father Francis Bradbury
Mother Katherine Ward
Wife Elizabeth Daintrie
Children Raphael


Nicholas was born in 1594, the eldest child of Francis and Katherine, and baptised at All Saints in Youlgreave on 8th December (1). His brother Richard was born in 1597 (2), then Raphael in 1602 (3), and finally his youngest brother John in 1605 (4).

Nicholas married Elizabeth Daintrie, in Edensor, on 13th April 1619 (5). Their daughter Amy was born in 1620 (6), and their son Raphael in 1622 (7).

Soon after this Nicholas and family moved to Darley Abbey (8) where he seems to have been an arable farmer (9), but they couldn't have been there for much longer than a year when Nicholas died aged just 29, in January 1624 (8). His inventory shows that whilst he apparently had a considerable estate, it was less than the total of his debts, although the bulk of these were to his father (9).

His wife survived him by about 10 years.
