The Manor House, Austerfield

The Manor House that William Bradford grew up in as a child

The orphaned William Bradford is thought to have been brought up in Austerfield Manor House by his grandfather and uncles. William later joined the Separatist cause as a teenager before escaping to Holland and eventually sailing on the Mayflower to America in 1620.

Although by the 1930’s Austerfield Manor House had fallen into disrepair, during WW11 it was frequently visited by American servicemen wishing to pay their respects to William Bradford's one-time home.
