Braddell of Wexford, Wicklow and Carlow
The Braddell connection with Wexford, Wicklow and Carlow began as far back as the late 17th century when it is recorded that one James Braddell signed his will on Feb. 10th 1714 as ‘Braddyll’. Obviously he had been in the area for a number of years prior to his death. In the same article it was stated that the first Braddells came to Ireland with Cromwell but there is no mention of Braddells in Prendergast’ s book ‘Cromwellian Settlement in Ireland’. In any event they certainly got no lands in Wexford (or anywhere else) at that time. The lands latterly occupied by the Braddells, were noted, in the Down Survey as being owned by Lord Baltimore, (who was in fact regranted the lands) and the Wentworths (Earls of Fitzwilliam).
