There is no certainty as to the parentage of Isaac. It has been stated that he arrived from London via Boston in 1667 , in which case he could not be a son of William Bradley. Then again, older genealogies presumed that he was, indeed, William's son ( See NEHG, Vol. 57, April 1903, p. 135.) His placement here remains tentative and should be viewed with caution
The 1915 edition of the New England Families identifies Isaac as a son of William and Bradley and Alice Pritchard.

Bradley families in New England By Leonard Abram Bradley
Privately Printed New York 1917 and is presented here to show the confusion regarding the lineage of this Issac to William, however both Isaac and William were buried in the same cemetery, lending more credence to the familial connection.
William Bradley settled in New Haven, Conn., prior to August, 1644. He took the oath of fidelity August 5th, 1644. He married Alice, daughter of Roger Prichard (of Springfield, Mass., and of Milford, Conn.) February 18th, 1645. According to tradition he emigrated from Bingley, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England ; was at one time an officer in the Parliamentary army and a friend of Cromwell. His mother died, probably, before 1634. On her death his father married, for his second wife, Elizabeth , and had by her the following named children, to wit : Daniel, Joshua, Nathan, Ellen and Stephen. After the death of his father, say, about 1645, his stepmother (Elizabeth Bradley), with her four sons and one daughter, emigrated to New England, and came to New Haven, to reside near her stepson, William Bradley.
Isaac Bradley, whose name appears on the records of the town of Branford, Conn., as early as January 20th, 1667, and who removed to East Haven, Conn., in 1683, where he died January 12th, 1712-13, se 62 years, married Elizabeth , who died January 3rd, 1712-13, se 56 years. From an affidavit made by him December 1st, 1685, in which he is spoken of as "aged 35 years or thereabouts" (recorded in the New Haven Land Records in Vol. 1, p. 242), it appears that he was born in 1650.
