Here is some information on this couple and their children from the surname files at the Adair Co., KY, Public Library, Genealogy Dept.. I'm not sure how reliable it is as the man who submitted the information (27 Aug 1989) has William's wife listed as Judith Scruggs on one sheet and Mary Field on another, but...

William Bradshaw, b. 1698 in Henrico Co., VA; married 1718 to Judith Scruggs, b. Cumberland Co., VA. No place of marriage. No date or place of death for William. No date of birth and no date or place of death for Judith.
William was the son of John Bradshaw, b. 1664 (no place given) and Elizabeth Harper (no information on her at all).

Children:
1. Field - no information except he married Judith Robinson
2. Charles - no birth info, married Jemima Hendricks (no marriage info) and died 1761 (no place given)
3. Josiah - no information except he married Elizabeth Armstead in 1763 (no place given)
4. William II - born 1725-27 (no place given), married Susannah Robinson (no date or place given) and died 1811 in Burke Co., NC
5. daughter - no information except she married Field Robinson
6. John - no information

Additional information I have gathered is as follows:
William Bradshaw died about 1747 in Henrico Co., VA. I also show a death date of 17 Dec 1748, but that may have been when the will was probated.
Judith Scruggs was born sometime between 1692 and 1704 (various databases show different years), probably in Henrico Co., VA. She died about 1749 in Henrico Co., VA. Her marriage to William probably took place between 1712 and 1718 in Henrico Co., VA.
I have nine children listed for William and Judith:
1. Temperance - b. 1713-1715 in Henrico Co., VA, married Wiltshire Marrin in Henrico Co., VA, and died before 1737 in Henrico Co., VA
2. Mary Ann - b. 1717-1723 in Henrico Co., VA, married John Robinson and died before 1785 in Henrico Co., VA
3. Field - b. 1717-1726 in Henrico Co., VA, married Judith Robinson about 1757 in Henrico Co., VA, and died Oct 1788 in Lincoln Co., NC
4. Charles - b. 1719-1730 in Henrico Co., VA, married Jemima Hendrick about 1749 in Henrico Co., VA, and died before 23 Jun 1761 in Henrico Co., VA
5. Josiah - b. 1721-1736 in Henrico Co., VA, married Elizabeth Armistead 20 Dec 1763 in Henrico Co., VA, and died about 1820 in NC
6. John - b. 1724-1726 in Henrico Co., VA, married Jane Canada/Canaday (no date or place known at this time) and died about 1821 in Campbell Co., TN
7. Obedience - b. about 1725 in Henrico Co., VA, married Field Robinson 1749-1774, Henrico Co., VA, and died 1749-1785 probably Henrico Co., VA
8. William - b. 1725-1728 in Henrico Co., VA, married Susannah Robinson 1748-1751 in Richmond, VA, and died before 23 Aug 1811 in Burke Co., NC (there is some speculation of a second wife, Elizabeth Harper whom he would have married between 1801-1805 in NC)
9. Tombin - b. about 1732 in Henrico Co., VA (no further information)

Most of the above information comes from various family databases on the Internet, with very little source information given. This all requires further research.

Hope some of this helps and I'm always open to additions and corrections anyone may have.
Thanks,
Mrs. Butler Ford

Oops!!! Sorry...wasn't paying attention and this is a repeat of a previous topic. I'll try to do better next time. :oops:

Deepest apologies,

Faye,
That's a good web page...I just wish she would have added some sources as she did on some of her other pages. It looks like most of us agree on the Bradshaw ancestors. The problem I'm having is trying to verify all the info out there. It's been really difficult finding actual deeds, marriages, wills, etc. via Internet or copies submitted to the local library and it's too far for me to travel to NC! HaHa!
I guess it's about time to go back to the "old fashioned way" and write to the county clerks and local genealogy societies. I've always tried to get the framework in place and then go back and fill in the blanks and do the verifying...kinda like paint-by-numbers, I guess. Do the outline, then fill it in.

Deb,

I wish I could learn more about Ursula Bradshaw but there doesn't seem to be much about her. What I do know came from my Abernathy cousins.

Genealogy reminds me of a jigsaw puzzle. You have all of those pieces that you need to put together to make up a family tree.

Working on my mom's dad's side of the family was easy because they lived in Calhoun County, Alabama.

Take care,
Faye
