Since this website primarily serves the descendants of Henry Martin Bradley I will stop there with the 8th generation.  I am the 12th generation of Bradleys in America tracing back to William Bradley and my children are the 13th generation.  So for me it would be:

9th Generation: Edward Luther Bradley m. Lucretia Ann Pringle / five children

10th Generation: Edward Cook Bradley m. Kathryn Stuart Burris / four children

11th Generation: Stuart Van Leer Bradley m. Janet Van Orden Williams / four children

12th Generation: Stuart Van Leer Bradley Jr. m. Ellen Christine Sammon / two children
