The Bradbury surname was a common one in the Saddleworth and the surrounding area in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Oxford Dictionary of Family Names describe it as a locative name from nearby Bredbury. These pages show the history of two family groups: one that farmed at Fairbanks and Runninghill, the descendants of John Bradbury and Mary Buckley, including a branch that was established in India around 1836. And one from Diggle Lee, the descendants of Thomas and Dinah Bradbury. There is currently no evidence that these families were closely related.

The Bradbury Family of Saddleworth, Yorkshire

 Today Saddleworth is a civil parish of the Borough of Oldham, in Greater Manchester. It comprises several villages and hamlets set amongst the west side of the Pennines: Austerlands, Delph, Denshaw, Diggle, Dobcross, Friezland, Grasscroft, Greenfield, Grotton, Lydgate, Scouthead, Springhead, Uppermill. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, for centuries Saddleworth was a centre of woollen cloth production. Following the Industrial Revolution, Saddleworth became a centre for cotton spinning and weaving, so much so that by the end of Queen Victoria's reign in January 1901, mechanized textile production had become a vital part of the local economy. Following the 1930s depression, Saddleworth's textile sector declined. Ethel Bradbury 1893-1962 Joseph Bradbury 1865-? James Alfred Bradbury 1885-1891
