BRADFORD, JOHN (d. 1780), Welsh poet, was born early in the eighteenth century. In 1730, while still a boy, be was admitted a 'disciple' of the bardic chair of Glamorgan, in which chair he himself presided in 1750. Some of his poems, 'moral pieces of great merit,' according to Dr. Owen Pughe, were printed in a contemporary Welsh periodical entitled the 'Eurgrawn.'
