Is there a project that covers these pre-1700 people? Bradwell, Fox, Derbsyhire

+4 votes

I want to help contribute to the deep genealogy on our shared tree.

1.) Geographical region and time period:   Hope parish, Derbyshire

2.) Some example names and dates:   Bradwell and Fox

3.) Source(s) for my information on them:,,, also an ancestry user tree Bradwell Descendants of Bradwell, Derbyshire can't say I trust all the assumptions made there but it's pretty good at having picked up every last Bradwell

Slightly different indexing at all of them, frustratingly not all images are available at Parish registers go back to 1599 so keen to see how far back I can reliably go. Some of these Bradwells even left wills which may help resolve relationships.

Feeling a bit stalled on this Hugh Bradwell I have to say.

I've had a look on the England project page and it appears this only falls generaly under the England Project, there are no sub-projects it appears to fall under. But let me know if it does!!

If you are chasing Bradwells, maybe you would like to start up a Bradwell Name Study.  Here is the One Name Studies Project page for you to have a read:

The thought of a Bradwell one name study fills me with dread! There are SO many of them.

Just looking at entering ancestors, their children and grandchildren and moving on.

When I've completed that mission I might get around to a Dorney one name study one day.

Hi Mark, the England project is probably the most relevant project for the Bradwell and Fox research. As you don't belong to any pre-1700 project yet, the England Project might be a good one to join. It would be great to have you involved.

How do I actually join and what is involved if I'm a member of the project over and above what I'm already down doing?
Hi Mark, thanks for a great question!  To join the England Project, answer this G2G question:

In terms of involvement, when you join the England Project, you start out on our Orphan Trail. It's a great way to get an overview of the sources relevant to England and brush up on other WikiTree relevant skills re sourcing and biographies. After that, you would join at least one of the England Project teams of your choice. It could be a county team, or one of the profile improvement teams, for instance. So after the Orphan Trail, you could just potentially add an England focus to some of your current activities, rather than necessarily do work over and above what you already do. However if you want to expand into new areas of WikiTree, there are lots of opportunities!

at the moment am looking at Mary Fox , wife of John Bradwell , and her ancestors , The Fox family lived in Fulwood (Fullwood) Hall which dated originally from the 15th Century, but was almost totally rebuilt in 1650 by Ulysses Fox and his son William Fox , It has a date stone of 1620. The Fox family lived at the Hall until 1707, when George Fox, grandson of Ulysses Fox , squandered the estate and the Hall was mortgaged to Nicholas Sylvester of Chapelton , who sold it to a John Fox, no relative of the Fox family
