John Bradbury

Author Code: EJBZ

Born: Aug, 1768 - Souracre Fold, Stalybridge, England

Died: 1825 - Middleton, Kentucky, USA

Bradbury was educated by John Taylor, a botanist, at Cocker Hill academy. He began his career in the cotton mills and progressed to various management roles in the industry. In 1809 he was sent to America to explore and to survey the potential of the colonies to supply cotton. Returning to England in 1812, Bradbury spent five years writing Travels in the Interior of America in the years 1809, 1810 and 1811 which gave thrilling accounts of his adventures and life amongst the Indians. However, it sold poorly, and with such a large family to provide for, Bradbury found himself almost destitute. Disillusioned with England and the noisy frivolities of the bustling world he resolved to quit his native land for America again. Bradbury was warmly welcomed back to America and he secured a position as curator and superintendent of the botanical gardens of St Louis giving his family good prospects in a new home. In St Louis, Bradbury was often visited by Indian Chiefs whom he had met in the wild. Maybe this prompted his desire to revisit their haunts and in 1825 he undertook an expedition which proved to be his last. Whether he died through natural causes or by accident is unknown.
