Biographical/Historical note

Tal-y-coed Court was formerly known as Llanvingel Hall and it was the estate of Crawshay Bailey (the elder) before it was purchased by Captain Bradney, then living in Somerset. It had been renamed Tal-y-coed by the 1890s. Sir Joseph Alfred Bradney was high sheriff of Monmouthshire in 1889, a county councillor 1898-1924, and an alderman 1924-1927. He was the author of numerous antiquarian and genealogical works, mostly relating to Monmouthshire, particularly his unfinished History of Monmouthshire (12 parts, 1904-1932). He was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters by the University of Wales in 1923 and knighted in 1924. The male line of his branch of the family appears to have died in the next generation with John Harford Bradney (1886-1962), and the family was represented in 1969 by Edgar John Humphrey Bradney (b. 1904) of Bideford, Devon, a grandson of Joseph Bradney's eldest son John Hopkins Bradney (1795-1861) and his third wife.
