Dr James Payton Badley
Birth: Aug. 15, 1822
Death: Jan. 16, 1901

Surgeon, born in Dudley, Wocestershire, England the seventh child of Mary Fisher (Badley) and John Badley, F.R.C.S., he married Laura Elizabeth Best. He took over his father's practice although he longed to emigrate to America with his elder brothers. He was "the youngest of the three children who remained in England. None of his brothers had wanted to follow the medical profession; and so, although for his own part he would have chosen a legal career, he felt it his duty to accede to his father's wish that one of his sons should become his assistant." They had four children. The two eldest daughters, Mary Ermiline Badley and Laura Elizabeth Badley never married. Catherine Badley married a Bourne, had one son John Badley Bourne who died a batchelor and John Haden Badley would found the school Bedales which still offers a sought after education today and was the first co-educational school in England. The Misses Badley moved to "Winterseeds" Grassmere, Westmoreland, England shortly after the turn of the twentieth century where they were frequently visited by their American cousins, Sarah and Louise MacArthur.
