Sir Donald Bradman and Withersfield, Christine E Jackson
Cricket is in the news with the Ashes being played in England. Sir Donald Bradman (1908–2001) is respected as the world’s best and most famous cricketer, both in Australia and the United Kingdom. His grandfather, Charles Bradman, lived in the small Suffolk village of Withersfield until he emigrated to Australia in 1852 – otherwise “The Don” might have played for England. This account of his family has been compiled from the village records.
