Families covered: Bradbourne of Bradbourne (Bradburne of Bradburne), Bradbourne of Hough, Bradbourne of Lea

BHO (Magna Brittania, vol 5: Derbyshire, 'General history: Gentry families of uncertain survival') mentions the following Goddard and his great-grandson (Roger) and that 5th in descent from that great-grandson was the John who married the Cotton heiress. Visitation appears to add one generation between Godard and (the relevant) Roger. Visitation spells the family name as 'Blackburne' but we tend to use 'Blackbourne' as that appears to be more common nowadays.
