Juanita---Love to have it but can't afford it as I live on a smal SS benifit.
However I am sending you my sparse notes on Robert Bradish. No one seems to know his ancestry. You may find some info. here that you didn't have before. Let me know.

No record has been found that he joined the church, became a Freeman, or held a Civil Office. Apparently his incentive to migrate was the opportunity to acquire land.

!In Cambridge by 1635. Lived on the corner of Harvard and Holyoke streets and was a vendor of Bear and Bread. It later was known as Holyoke House.

!Instead of Cambridge, he may have died in Framingham.

!In 1654 a complaint was made to the Townsmen of Cambridge that students of Harvard were spending too much money at the Bradish shop. The President of Harvard interceded and the matter was dropped.

!Arrived in Boston on 3 Oct 1635 in the "Defiance" which embarked from Hardwick, Eng. on 10 Aug 165 with wife Mary.

!Ancestry of Thomas Charles Brainerd by Jacobus.
Mentions an interesting story of a Robert Bradish grandson who was hanged as a pirate.

!Will made 12 May 1657 and probated on 10/29/1659.
