Arthur Bragdon was one of York, Maine’s first settlers and the progenitor of the Bragdon family in America. He was born in England around 1597 and arrived in Maine before January 1636. From his three sons and sixteen grandchildren, his many descendants spread throughout the state of Maine and states beyond. This comprehensive genealogy traces male-line descendants through the seventh generation and female lines for one generation. It includes hundreds of family sketches, with detailed biographical information, all meticulously documented.
