A smallish tree ‎(depending on how you look at it)‎ originating in Bradford, Yorkshire with 149 new people and 250 new images.

These all stem from a certain John Close ‎(sigh)‎ ‎(1791)‎ who seems to have been responsible for the Bradford Closes. Not sure where he came from, but there are a number of possibilities … none of which are conclusive, so he’s hanging around waiting for a link back. This seems to have flushed Bradford out, so to speak, with the usual exceptions of those that fell between the Census cracks. If you can fill in any gaps then please let me know.

This tree contains one Dennis Brian Close … renowned Yorkshire, Somerset and England cricketer – youngest cricketer ever to play for England.
