BRADFORD, Alexander Warfield, jurist, born in Albany, New York, in 1815; died in New York City, 5 November, 1867. He was a son of John M. Bradford, D. D., of Albany, was graduated at Union in 1832, studied law, was admitted to the bar, and soon achieved a high reputation for extensive knowledge of law. In 1848 he entered upon political life, and was elected surrogate, was twice re-elected, and was connected, either as judge or advocate, with many" prominent cases, among them the Parish will, the Seguin will, the Burdell-Cunningham trial, and the Gardiner and Tyler will. He prepared ten volumes of legal reports, four of "Reports of Surrogates' Cases," and six of "Bradford's Reports," the latter of which became a standard authority. He also edited a work on "American Antiquities," and, in conjunction with Dr. Anthon, edited "The Protestant Churchman." He was one of the commissioners designated by the legislature to codify the laws of the state. In 1846 he published a discourse delivered in 1845 before the New York historical society, and in 1863 a semi-centennial address to the Albany academy.
