Bradborne was a member of the Corporation, and signed the return of members in 1660. When Dr. Calamy visited Andover and preached there, he was the guest of a Mr. Bradband, a substantial shopkeeper. Some old documents of the Congregationalists show that a Mr. Bradborne belonged to that body: and no doubt the issuer of this token was the person referred to by Dr. Calamy. See "Calamy's Life and Times" for an interesting account of this visit.
