This book will be of interest not only to Bradburys, but to all who have a connection with a Bradbury family member, through ancestry or otherwise, or who have an interest in general historic events, from the early Middle Ages to the present day.
The publication quotes new and intriguing evidence of the Viking origins of some Bradbury family members, and displays relatively unknown seals and charters of three generations of Bradburys living in the 12th and 13th centuries. In addition to over 100 biographies of notable family members are entries for a host of Bradbury industries, ranging from a maple syrup producer to a piano manufacturer, and from a New Zealand stud farm to a factory making sewing machines and motor-cycles. Bradbury place and other names, including those of islands and towns, a museum and a mountain, complete this interesting collection of entries.
Over twenty chapters include Arts, Science & Engineering, Medieval Clerics, TV & Film, Justice and Sport: comprehensively cross-referenced and beautifully illustrated, they provide a wonderful treasure-chest and keepsake about worldwide Bradbury Heritage.
