My line of the Gardner family can be traced back to Abraham Gardner and Mary Newman who married in the City of London in 1761 and lived in the Westminster area.

Their granddaughter - my 3x great grandmother - Mary Gardner in 1819 married the clergyman William Bradley in Stoke Hammond, Buckinghamshire where her father Charles was rector from 1786-1823. They had 6 (known) children.
