Bradford Immigrants

Below is a list of Bradford emigrants from 1620-mid 1700s. This information comes from the book "Bradford Family History" published by the American Genealogical Institute in 1978 by Heritage Press, Inc. I imagine that the only way to purchase this book is through the AGI above or through Heritage Press since it's no longer available in book stores. You may be able to find a copy in a rare/used bookstore however. The address for the AGI in 1978 is:

NOTES:
* There were no less than 150 capital crimes in England for which a man/woman might be transported. Of course, there were the expected ones of murder, arson, and treason, but there were also lesser ones such as maiming, stealing a cow, cutting down trees along an avenue, sending threatening letters, and standing mute when addressed by an legal official
** Even though it says only 31 years, I have read in many other places 37 years, but either way, that's a LONG time! :)
