Misc. Notes
Robert Bradish, dyer, was an early settler of Cambridge, and he has been comprehensively treated by Anderson et al.643 who provide details of his career. According to Morison’s Founding of Harvard College,642 Bradish’s house lot (about 1638) was on the corner of what are today Massachusetts Avenue and Holyoke Street, on the site of the Holyoke Center and opposite Wadsworth House. I lived on this same block of Holyoke Street from 1983-89, 350 years after Robert Bradish. He also owned a strip of land across today’s Massachusetts Avenue known as Bradish’s Orchard; it is now the part of Harvard Yard that runs between the Widener Library on the east and Boylston and Weld Halls on the west.


Robert Bradish’s son James was the subject of a paper: “James Bradish2 of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Newtown, Long Island, New York” by Gale Ion Harris, The American Genealogist, 75: 47-50, 2000.
