Goze Bradeley, Much Wenlock

Kia ora koutou katoa

I have a number of ancestors whose abode is given as Goze Bradeley, 1550-1600.  I haven't managed to find this place on a map at all.  Is this where Bradeley farm is now marked, I see it has a number of different spellings.  What does 'Goze' come from and what does it mean?

I think it may have been Goose ( or West ) Bradeley. The Bradley Farm you refer to appears to be in the township of Wyke and Bradley. Note the different spelling, Bradley

In the link below I would suggest you scroll down to the map of Much Wenlock in the 17th century. Bradeley is marked near Bourton. Then scroll down to the section about manors and estates - it comes after the section about Bourton.

" Bradeley formerly Goose or West Bradeley was..."

Thanks for that William - Bradley was spelt the other way for the farm on one of the maps I looked at.

I shall pursue what you have sent me.
