        Dates of existence


        John A. Bradshaw was a crown attorney and clerk of the peace for the City of Peterborough from 1948 to 1975. John researched the Bradshaw family and he was able to trace the Bradshaw lineage as early as 660 A.D., with a connection to the Sutton Hoo ship which was discovered in Britain in 1939. John was very successful in tracing many of his ancestors throughout the centuries, from Haigh Hall in England, 1295, when Sir William de Bradshaigh was owner, to a succession of baronets, captains, knights and earls. There is a noteworthy connection, by marriage, with the Fraser family originally of Scotland, of which Simon Fraser was a descendent. The ancestry of the Fraser family is extensively presented in this fonds as well.
