About Me.

Early life
Birth of Campbell Braddock

Campbell Braddock was born at the turn of the twenty-first century at Whangārei Hospital in Whangārei, a small city in the region of Northland, New Zealand. His father age 43, a prosperous farmer, was described as "quiet and caring". and his mother age 23, was also a farmer who loved everything horses. Braddock was in an Abnormal Fetal Presentation and a C Section was required to prevent birth injuries. young Campbell was a small child; his father Ian said he looked like a "Bag of bones". Braddock was a fast learner, his first step was at 8 months, started riding a bike without training wheels at age two and first motorbike at age 4.

First Snow experience, Campbell and his sister
Braddock's father had an exciting new farming opportunity he couldn't denied in Ranfurly, Otago, the family relocated from subtropical Northland and ended up in Central Otago, after arriving, all their belongings were a week late. On 20th June, Ranfurly temperature plummeted to –12.5°C (9.5°F) and Braddock experenced his first snow fall on 26 August 2002[1], as pictured. His father's job turned out to good to be true and the family soon relocated to South Canterbury.
Diagram of Kidney with the stones

At age 7, Braddock was diagnosed with kidney stones after a stone was lodged at the end of his penis. while on the long trip to Oamaru hospital, Braddock asked to stop the car on the side of the country road, and pop! the stone disappeared in the grass. his parents asked him to find it to no avail. "it was unimaginable pain that a child, let alone an adult should never go through". During this time Braddock and his sister changed back to Glenavy School after a short time at Papakio School in Otago.

Glenavy School Newsletter, Team 4, week 8, 29.11.05
One of our students; Campbell Braddock, is currently in Christchurch Hospital having a kidney operation. Ms Gardner and the juniors have sent cards and faxes to Campbell to wish him all the best. Campbell is a gorgeous wee bloke and I am sure you will all spare a thought for him and his family over the next few days. _ Kerry Wilkin

On 29 November 2005, Braddock had his kidney operation. As he laid in bed moments before surgery, his mother was beside him, Braddocks' sister and dad were in another waiting room, his mother lefts the room moments before the nurses relocated him to the operating theatre, one of the doctors said stay strong and a doctor placed the Strawberry scented anaesthetic face mask over Braddocks face. What should have been a routine procedure had taken 5 failed attempts, later they decided that keyhole surgery in the back was useless and the surgeon opted to make a 16cm (6.3inch) incision on his front left abdomen, they removed all the 29 kidney stones and the kidney became the size of a grape. Laparoscopic nephrectomy was performed to remove the Kidney, 4 hours later Braddock woke up sleepily with no pain and all his family was around him. On Saturday 10th December 2005, the Coca-Cola Christmas was held in Hagley Park next to the Hospital, he had the chance to watch it from the top floor, live music played over the TV and fireworks exploding at eye level, "it was wonderful".

In May 2007, Braddock's mother left the family, he was washing his dirtbike by the garage, his mother jumped into the car, and Braddock asked "where you going, can I come?", she replied "No, I'm going Waimate shopping", unknown to him at the time, it would be the last time he would see his mother. Everyone didn't know her whereabouts, they soon found out that she had taken a large sum of money and married the employee who was a criminal, so he could take her surname and flee to Australia. oddly Braddock nor his sister missed her, probably because their mother was very abusive towards them, she used to kick, punch, and use a horsewhip against them both.

Campbell in Primary School

From age 5 to age 12, Braddock resided with his parents and older sister in South Canterbury. Braddock was educated at Glenavy School, a rural school with around 95 students and heavily influenced by the community church. He spent much of his time on independent pursuits, and did poorly in school, he struggled with reading and writing and was diagnosed with dyslexia at age 12. his father had a disagreement with the school headmaster about his education. in the first week of the new school year Braddock and his sister was removed from school, and by February, started Oamaru intermediate School, located in Oamaru. recommend by his father's employer. the family soon discovered that Braddock was two years behind in reading and comprehension. however, excelled in Science, technology, and the arts. near the end of intermediate, he had caught up to the level of his classmates plus more, he was top of the class for Art, Sewing, woodwork, and science, with the determination and dedication to be the best he also received two diligence awards. This he did at the age of thirteen, achieving an admirable final report.

Braddock studied at Waitaki Boys' High School, also located in Oamaru, at the time of his enrollment, this school had a reputation of bullying, drug use and poor management, it wasn't all bad, Braddock enjoyed this school and was an A++ student, who liked many subjects. he won the top of junior science, top in Art and Technology. other students thought he was a suck-up to the teachers. he began to struggle in English class when the topics began to get more advanced. he wasn't that social and couldn't keep his mates as he felt they were quite rude to him. At age 15, he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, he didn't accept it until years later, but things began to make sense for him. Braddock graduated secondary school with NCEA Level 3 with University Entrance.

Working life

During primary and intermediate school, Braddock didn't want to work for someone delivering papers, so he created multiple companies, one of them being Seezs Seeds, he grew sunflowers and packed 20 seeds for $2, he then knock on every door in the neighbourhood, It was so successful the first year, Braddock reinvested the profits to make the packaging with colour card and printing. this small side hustle lasted three years

Braddocks' official first afterschool job was as a Cinema Assistant. his sister worked there as well, Braddock loved that job, learnt so much, free movies and then he received a redundancy letter, the owner couldn't afford to keep him on. a year later the Cinema went bankrupt and the small town lost their movie theatre for two years.

After graduation, Braddock looked high and low for a job with nothing suitable. Factory work was out of the question and farming wasn't the best choice there. a stroke of luck Braddocks old teacher from intermediate had become a recruiting person for a local supermarket, He always wanted to run his own fruit shop and this would have been a great stepping stone to get there. Braddock did terribly at the interview and started work the next day. Still loving work five years on.

History remembers only the celebrated, genealogy remembers them all. - Lawrence Overmire

I never liked history at school, probably because we had to learn about the world wars most of the time, however, Genealogy is the best history anyone could learn, expressly if it's your own ancestors. you can uncover so many stories about normal people throughout the centuries, there are many stories about my ancestors that suffered, achieved and had a passion for what they did, which inspires me every day.

Migration to New Zealand Timeline

Migration path from England to New Zealand via the clippers route

For over 150 years, most ancestors who migrated to New Zealand were from Britain (England, Scotland, Wales) and Ireland. Yet for them, New Zealand was the most distant place on earth. The journey by sea took 100 days, and voyagers endured rough seas, cramped conditions and illness. Unless they were offered free travel or other rewards, many people were reluctant to emigrate except my brave ancestors.

Fun Campbell Fact! - There are 116 years between the Kendall family (1814) and the Braddock family (1930) to arrive in New Zealand.

Convict Ancestors

The convicts were transported as punishment for crimes committed in Britain and Ireland. In Australia, their lives were hard as they helped build the young colony. When they had served their sentences, most stayed on and some became successful settlers, between 1788 and 1868, about 162,000 convicts were transported from Britain and Ireland to various penal colonies in Australia. I have found that two direct ancestors were convicts, both served 14 years with totally different crimes, their families also moved to Australia as free settlers years later.

War Veterans

The table below represents the family members who became soldiers and fought in the wars. As most soldiers had gone to fight in the war, women had to replace men in the workforce. This put a lot of pressure upon the older children in the family as they had to take care of the household duties and any younger children. Many of the men who came back from the War were suffering from serious injuries, the effects of Mustard Gas and or shell shock. They were too tormented to talk about their experiences and often it would take them a long time to recover from the trauma of the War. This meant that some women had become responsible for supporting the entire family. The children were scared about their Dads’ going to war because they might not see them again. However, some children became were confused when their fathers did return because they did not understand the effects of trauma on their fathers and didn’t know how to communicate with them.

As soon as I turned 18, I ordered a DNA test from AncestryDNA, I received the test within a week, produced saliva in a tube and sent it off to Ireland. One and a half weeks later my results were in, nothing was a surprise and I started connecting with other family members and proving all family lines.

Ethnicity Estimate and Information

England & Northwestern Europe. 50%
The history of Britain, the heart of our England & Northwestern Europe region, is often presented as one group of invaders after another displacing the native population. The Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, and Normans all left their mark on Britain both politically and culturally. However, the story of Britain is far more complex. In fact, modern studies suggest the earliest populations weren’t wiped out, but adapted and absorbed the new arrivals.
Scotland. 26%
With its center in the northern third of the island of Great Britain but stretching down to Brittany in France, our Scotland ethnicity region is known for its geographical beauty, medieval architecture, and folklore. Gaelic and Scots have influenced regional English dialects and are both still spoken in some areas. National symbols, including the Lion Rampant, clan tartans, and bagpipes, are often recognized internationally alongside symbols of traditional cuisine, like whisky and haggis.
Norway. 15%
The earliest inhabitants of our Norway region were strong, seafaring peoples. For centuries, hunter-gatherers slowly pushed north across the Baltic Sea, probing coastal fjords and inland stretches for arable land as ice melted off the untamed region. While Norwegians, Swedes, and Danes all share a common Norse heritage, over time, Norway’s resilient coastal communities evolved into a nation known for its seamanship, technology, artistry, and mythology.
European Jewish. 5%
The historic dispersal of the Jewish population from its origin in the Levant on the east coast of the Mediterranean resulted in insular communities scattered throughout Europe, North Africa, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Although some Jewish communities enjoyed positions of relative peace and prosperity, many more were segregated from mainstream society by law, custom, and prejudice, experiencing sustained persecution and discrimination. Jewish populations from northern and eastern Europe are often known as “Ashkenazi.” “Sephardic” refers to Jews who were expelled from Spain during the Inquisition and mostly settled in North Africa and southeastern Europe.
Wales. 4%
The rolling hills and steep cliffs bounded by England to the east and 870 miles of coastline on the north, west, and south make up our Wales population region—or Cymru in Welsh, which is still spoken there. First settled by Celtic tribes, the country’s ancient and medieval history has been preserved and woven into a modern sense of Welsh identity and pride, which is still visible in the country’s 600 castles, its Welsh-language media, and its Eistedfoddau, festivals that celebrate Wales’s long tradition of literature, poetry, and music.
Sweden & Denmark. 2%
Our Sweden & Denmark region emerged from glacial ice as lands of lakes and islands, mountains and plains. Though the countries were often at war, the people share a common Norse heritage that includes elements of language, religion, and art, though they eventually developed cultures of their own. Situated along the western boundary of the Baltic Sea, relative geographic isolation did not stop the Swedes and the Danes from influencing culture, trade, and politics in Europe and around the globe.

Braddock Research

I created the Braddock Name Study to connect all Braddocks, which includes connecting lost families with their distant cousins and establishing a small community to share family stories. Three years later I have helped two adopted Braddock's find their birth parents, connected families with reunions and widen the scope of Braddock family research available free via WikiTree. Wikitree has been great with presenting information for each family, Each different family on WikiTree are categorized into Clans, as of December 2018, there are 17 clans with over 70% of Braddock Profiles in a clan. We are very strict on what is considered a source, how the information is presented and if it's reliable. In March 2015 there were only 120 profiles, now, there are just under 4000 profiles (mostly researched by myself) and still room for growth in many locations. I have created a Facebook page (Braddock Genealogy), on this page we give helpful research information, the latest progress and the profile of the week. Like the page to share your support.

Braddock research in New Zealand and Australia was a huge success in 2018, I collected the Birth, Deaths and marriages from the Australia and New Zealand government BDM's and created large tables for freespace pages that showed every record and linked them to profiles on Wikitree.

Since the success of researching New Zealand and Australian Braddock's, I decided to have bigger and bolder plans, At the start of 2019 I had created large spreadsheets of Braddock's born in England and Wales, the information was sourced from online GRO Index and FreeBMD, The date range was 1837-1940. as of June 2020, I have managed to create 2444 profiles on WikiTree (91.3%) with a further 234 people to add.

I have the oldest traceable Braddock line, dating over 460 years or 13 generations. these Braddocks originated in Rocester, Staffordshire, and seven generations were born in Macclesfield, Cheshire. In Macclesfield, my ancestors worked as Gas and Rates Collectors, Confectioners, Grocers, Farmers, and in the Silk industry. It's been 88 years since my Great-grandfather Jonas and his family arrived in New Zealand from Macclesfield. Our family belongs in Braddock Clan 1, the most researched Braddock family and now the largest on WikiTree.

In February 2017, I created a very detailed WikiTree Braddock Register, which contains all Braddock profiles, we use this list to show the true information on Clans, location, Common names, Privacy levels and if the profile is sourced with reliable records. I have included the most common variants including Bradock, Braddocke, Bradocke, and Brodock.


I am grateful for the guidance, assistance and encouragement I have received from so many people in New Zealand, England, Sweden, the United States and Australia. Friends, Relatives, and the staff at museums, council offices and archives have been unfailingly helpful, And I acknowledge their contributions. I would like to thank Stuard Greer, a reporter from Macclesfield Express, Richard Foy, Chief Archivist and General Manager of Archives New Zealand, Waitaki District Libraries and Museum. and Paperspast for being free to access; and a large number of family and friends including Graham Braddock, Ian Braddock, Bev Roper, Alison O'Sullivan, late Jason Smith, Kathryn Smith, Gunner Leman, Valerie Willis, Kathleen Grant, Linda Trickett, and Fiona Jackson

Hi Debi, I would love to be in the biography team, I'm currently going though my direct ancestors profiles and cleaning them up and adding additional research if I come across it.

I'll sort the Voyage task probably next week when I find time.

Happy Wikitreeing. Campbell

Absolutely amazing my distant cousin. When we have bad days, we can just say we're just channeling Grandpa King John :) I'm sure my brother has a Bob Welch album somewhere in his clutter. Inspiring stuff!

Hi Campbell, I just came across your Braddock, Black Heritage category. You had this as a sub project of the global Black Heritage Project and there should be no personal space pages in that category. It is also not a subproject since it is a name study/personal project. I have changed the other parent category to African-American Name Studies since this is where it would be classified. Let me know if you have any questions about that. Thanks! Emma~~US Black Heritage and global Black Heritage
Thank you so much for doing an awesome job on my grandmother Rose Braddocks profile (Braddock-4703). I knew it had been looked at and someone thanked me for adding her to the wiki tree, but I had no idea so much work was put into her bio and sources. I really appreciate all you have done.

Sincerely grateful, Jocelynn~~ Cottrell-1773
