Street, Aged 66 years.
Preston Chronicle  8th December 1838
There isn't 100% certainty that this refers
to 'our' Thomas Bradburn's wife, but it's a very
uncommon name in Preston.
In the 1841 Census, Thomas Bradburn, 68 years,
is still living in Great Avenham Street, with his son,
Thomas Bradburn, 40 years. Both are described
as 'Independent'.
