John Joseph Bradbury (1849 – 22 April 1928)

John was the the son of John and Sarah Bradbury and was baptised at St Andrew the Great on 6 May 1849.  He grew up at 9 Mill Road where his father (1822-1870) was a publican and cabinet maker.  After John Snr’s death, Sarah Bradbury took over the running of the pub.  In 1871 John Jnr was living with her at 9 Mill Road and working as a cabinet maker.  He married Elizabeth Crane on 1 January 1873 at St. Matthew’s Church and the couple had four children: Elizabeth Sarah (1875-1963), Katie Jane (1877-1922), Grace Emma (1880-1967) and John James Crane (1889-1934).  John continued to work as a cabinet maker, and the family lived at 43 South Street (1881) and then at 2 Upper Gwydir Street (at least 1891 onwards). He died aged 79 years.

John James Crane Bradbury (1889 – 30 September 1934)

John was the only son of John and Elizabeth.  The census of 1911 noted him as being paralysed from birth, and of no occupation.  He lived with his parents at Upper Gwydir Street until at least 1928, and in 1930 was living with his sister Grace and her husband at 11 Sleaford Street. He died aged 45 years old.

Elizabeth Emma Bradbury (née Crane)  (c.1851 – 28 December 1935)
