Another village in the area is called Broadbridge Heath, and is the birthplace of Percy Bysshe Shelley, the great romantic poet who lived from 1792 to 1822.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bradebrege were among those contributors: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
