James Bradley (1693-1762) was rector (?) of Bridstow in 1719-1721, but he probably spent little time here as he also had a living in Pembrokeshire and was chaplain to the Bishop of Hereford. In any case, he was far more interested in astronomy than theology and resigned these posts to become Savilian Professor of Astronomy at Oxford in 1721.
