Hello, and welcome to Rootschat!

If you haven't already, please take a few moments to read our guidelines for posting here

and getting the best results here

http://www.rootschat.com/help/posting_best.php

What sort of information are you looking for?

Baptisms of children, burial information, census information?

Please let us know so that we can give you as much help as we can.  ;)

A good way to make surname connections with other members is to enter your surname interests in the Surname Interests Table (SIT), and to check there whether others are researching these names. 

This can be found at http://surname.rootschat.com/ , there is a link to it at the top of each Rootschat page.

               

The more people who enter their surnames, the more chance there will be of making a connection!

Hi Sharon

I'm not local now, but I come from Shifnal, and my mum is from Priorslee. I am fairly sure we have ancestors in common.

I had Bradburn rellies, ironworkers, who came to Glasgow from England, 1890?

Hi Skoosh

There were lots of pits, furnaces, ironworks etc. in this area of Shropshire in the 19th century so it seems quite plausible that some people might have migrated to other parts of the UK when the industry began to decline. I don't know if any of my family did so, but if you have some names I might be able to check whether they tally with my family.

In Glasgow in 1871, earlier than I thought, Brian. This is them in 1881,
15 River street, Dennistoun, Glasgow.
Thomas Bradburn 47, blacksmith, b. England.
Matilda Bradburn 39,                          "
William G Bradburn 12,                 b. Glasgow.
Mary K 10,                                          "
Thomas  5                                           "
Matilda   3                                           "

Pretty sure this is the right Bradburn's, an uncommon name here.  By 1891 they are in 40 James Orr Street, Townhead, Glasgow. One of them married my gt aunt who was at No' 34, b. Dudley, father a Forbes, a glassblower, her mother an Edmunds, Staffs.
Maybe they got together of an evening to discuss the cricket scores?

Skoosh.

These aren't my direct ancestors, and I haven't been able to find these names, but there were a LOT of Bradburns in this area of Shropshire at that time. A few years ago I tried to construct a complete family tree of them but gave up because there were so many. My gg grandfather, Joseph Bradburn, b. 1840, was a blacksmith, as was his father, Isaac, b. 1795 (as late as the 1871 census his occupation was still given as blacksmith) so it was in the family.
