Hmmmm... The data would seem to suggest that the Bradbury clan
is a bit less fecund and longer lived than the Williams clan.
I've double checked with my father (the family historian)
and I'm only 12th generation compared to Brian's 16th while
being only a year older than Brian.

However, Thomas Bradbury is known to have been in Maine
by 1636 and may have arrived as early as 1634 so we've
got you by a nose there... :-).
