Re: william Radcliffe
In Response To: Re: william Radcliffe ()

Hi Victoria, my ancestors in Andreas are the Ballaradcliffe branch of the family. However I think our family lines do join way back in the 1600's. I have a John Radcliffe whose brother was Gilbert Radcliffe. Gilbert was holder of the lands later known as Belfast. I have little information before this time except their father was John who probably married the daughter of Gilbert McKelly. (He died in 1678). An earlier relative was another John Radcliffe who married in to the Bradshaw family before 1575. The Bradshaw family owned Ballaradcliffe. Hope this helps
