Thanks for answering my query. I have been out of town for some time and just got back today. Do you know the parents of Richard Bradford and Richard Taylor? I do not have any information on the children of Richard Taylor and Sarah Barker. I am descended from Richard Bradford I, Richard Bradford II, Philemon Bradford, andThomas Bradford.Thomas Bradford's daughter married John Prewitt and I am in that line down to my grandmother. Again, thanks for your help.

Carolyn

Molasses would be faster! Here is what I have:
KENTUCKY RECORDS, SIXTEEN HUNDRED LINES TO PILGRIMS
BRADFORDS OF CHARLES COUNTY VIRGINIA
PARISH RECORDS OF ST. THOMAS THE APOSTLE, LONDON, ENGLAND

Richard Taylor Sr. abt 1545
Margaret Manning (servant)abt 1690 d. 13 Mar 1574 St. Thomas, England

Richard Taylor abt 1619
wife: Sarah Barker abt 1623

Parents of Sarah Barker: (Burgess, Mariner, Pilgrim) William Barker abt 1595, England, d. 4 Mar. 1655, Charles City county, Virginia wife: Frances Ward abt 1599, England, father: James Ward, abt 1573, England.
Children of William Barker and Frances Ward: John, Sarah, Elizabeth

Children of Richard Taylor and Sarah Barker:

Francis(female), Lucy, Robert, Sarah, Katherine, Lucy, Richard, Robert, Elizabeth, Captain John, Sarah, Katherine, Elizabeth

I do not know why they had several with the same name, unless the earlier ones died. This was not an unusual practice. I have some ancestors with their children named the same and all still living. Seems confusing to me! At least when you called Elizabeth to the dinner table you got them all.

I believe the father of Richard Bradford was Richard Bradford Blessed(Babtized)December, 1611 at St. Thomas, London, England. I found a Richard Bradford son of Vespasian Bradford in the Parish Records of St. Thomas the Apostle, London, England along with the Taylor family records in the same Parish. This is why I believe that Vespasian is the father of Richard and grandfather of Richard Bradford of Charles City County, Virginia.

I found your post on line regarding Bradford and Barker.

Do you have descendents of John Barker?

Thank you in advance.

Most of my Bradford info came from a distant relative's book. If you can provide more info on this John Bradford (e.g., dob, dod, place of birth, etc.), I will look to see if there is any more info in the book for this person.
