My mother is an English immigrant of proud working class origins. Besides the many laborers and working people in her tree, some interesting maternal ancestors include "japanners", a POW in the Napoleonic Wars, and a bigamist who was exiled to Australia.
My dad's a descendant of over a hundred known U.S. colonial immigrants. They were farmers, adventurers, mariners, Puritans, and Quakers, migrating to New Jersey from Philadelphia, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Amsterdam, New Sweden, and one from the Virginia Colony (maybe). Many migrated from Long Island when land in New Jersey became available. Others landed in the Garden State and stayed put. :)
|The only place I have this surname is on their son's death certificate. On her son's marriage record, her name is Layman.|
Another pair of brick walls I'd like to solve is Cornelius Shaw and Phebe Joslin. He was a Revolutionary patriot, she might be a descendant of people who survived a massacre in King Phillip's War. Maybe.

"Salem Monthly Meeting was established in 1676. It became part of Salem Quarterly Meeting in 1682. In 1827, after the Hicksite Separation in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, the meeting split into Hicksite and Orthodox branches. In 1955, after the two Philadelphia Yearly Meetings reunited, there remained two Salem Monthly Meetings. Salem Monthly Meeting at Woodstown, the former Orthodox meeting, was discontinued in 1977. Salem Monthly Meeting at Salem, the former Hicksite meeting, is currently an active monthly meeting." The only Salem, New Jersey meeting category we have is for the one located in Salem - the one which was Hicksite..

Have you seen Shadwell, Middlesex at "A Vision of Britain through Time", a project of University of Portsmouth and others?
Maybe it throws some light on other research about where Bradway was from?
I love maps, so this is one of my favorite sources.
