Hi again Stuart  :)

I've been doing a bit more investigating and have gathered this info - some of which you might have or has been given on this thread. It does seem to prove that the Glasgow Thomas was the Dawley Thomas:

I'm wondering if the 1825 Thomas died and they had another Thomas b.c 1831.  However, his age varies throughout and his death cert gives an age that fits a 1825 birth.

1841
Dawley Magna
Isaac, 50, Blacksmith
Catharine, 45
Isaac, 20, carpenter
William, 15
Charles, 12
Thomas, 10
John, 8
Richard, 6
George 5
all born Shropshire

Marriage
20 Oct 1846 Dawley Parva
Thomas Bradburn (blacksmith) and Christian Burgwyn. Both of full age.
Father - Isaac, smith
One of the witneses was William Bradburn

1861
Frame Lane, Dawley
Thomas Bradburn, widower, 33, blacksmith, b. Dawley
Fanny, daughter, 16
Isaac, son, 13
John H, 11
All b. Dawley

Thomas marries Matilda Gillespie 1868, Barrhead (from child's birth cert)

1891
James Or Street, Dennistoun
Thomas, widower, 60, Blacksmith, b.England
William, s, 21, grocer
Thomas, s, 14, fleshers app
Matilda, d, 12, scholar
Children b. Lanarkshire

Death 17 April 1910, Barrhead
Thomas Bradburn, Blacksmith( Journeyman). Aged 85.
Widower of 1. Christian Burguin 2. Matilda Gillespie
Parents - Isaac Bradburn, Blacksmith and ? Bradburn MS ? Both deceased.
Cause - Senile decay
Informant - John Bradburn, son

Not sure if you subscribe to Ancestry but there are a number of trees there suggesting that Isaac Bradburn married Catherine/Christiana Jarratt in 1811 but no source given.

Have found the following marriage in the Shropshire marriage index

6 July 1811 Broseley Isaac Bradbon  and Christiana Jarrett

Nice work Gadget,  :-*  Dawley appears to be what's now Telford, an industrial area, so Thomas the blacksmith was maybe not working as a farrier. Where he lived in the Townhead, Glasgow was within easy walking distance of the various Springburn locomotive works, all of which had blacksmiths shops. Folk in Glasgow tended to live near their work so the Blochairn steel-works & Arrol's who built the Forth Bridge are other possibilities?

Skoosh.

The New Town in the East Shropshire Coalfield was originally called Dawley. The name was changed in 1968 to Telford when the New Town was expanded to include places like Wellington north of the A5.

The East Shropshire Coalfield was the "birthplace of the Industrial Revolution" and includes  Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge. As other industrial areas grew East Shropshire went into decline and so not surprisingly there was considerable population movement from the area in  search of work in other coal mining and metal working areas.

I know the area fairly well as I grew up not all that far away in the Welsh borders.

Many of my father's lines came from that area - moving between there, the Staffordshire coalfields and the Denbighshire coalfields - some were pit sinkers. Dad often talked about these ancestors. Later, some of the family moved to the Lancashire, Yorkshire and Durham coalfields.

Happy New Year Bradburn hunters!
Here's a very rough partial family tree that I constructed about 10 years ago when I was trying to get to grips with the sheer numbers of Bradburns in this part of Shropshire. I gave up eventually when my brain couldn't take any more. I knew I had it tucked away somewhere and managed to find it this morning. I'm descended from Joseph Bradburn and Emma Horton and their daughter Emma.
