Bradford had been a village when it was a crossing border at that time. Brad means “broad”, by the time of the “Domesday Book in 1086”: “After the Norman invasion and conquest of England in 1066, the Domesday Book - a manuscript record of the "Great Survey" of much of England and parts of Wales completed in 1086 by order of William I, known as William the Conqueror” was commissioned in December 1085 by order of William the Conqueror”.
William needed to raise taxes to pay for his army and so a survey was set in motion to assess the wealth and assets of his subjects throughout the land. “
The name Bradford comes from the Old English brad “broad” + ford “ford” : “Habitational name from any of the many places, large and small, called Bradford”.
