Fulk, Dori, comp.. Bradford Massachusetts Vital Records to 1850 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 2000.Original data: Vital Records of Bradford, Massachusetts to the end of the Year 1849. Topsfield, MA, USA: Topsfield Historical Society, 1907.
These records include the vital records of the town of Bradford, Essex Co., MA from the 1600s through the year 1849. I have listed as many as possible in the context of family groups, listed alphabetically. At the end of each surname I have listed all those births, marriages, and/or deaths which could not be definitely identified with one of the families listed for that surname. Family groupings are based on the conclusions of the editor. The following records of births, marriages and deaths include all entries to be found in the books of record kept by the town clerks (no records of intentions of marriage before 1850 are preserved in the custody of the Haverhill city clerk, nor has extended search brought them to light in private hands); in the church records (which are very imperfect); in the returns made to the Salem Quarterly Court; in the cemetery inscriptions; and in private records found in family Bibles, etc.. These records are printed in a condensed form in which every essential particular has been preserved. All duplication of the town clerks# record has been eliminated, but differences in entry and other explanatory matter appear in brackets. Parentheses are used when they occur in the original record; also to show the difference in the spelling of a name in the same entry; and to indicate the maiden name of a married woman.
