We have a real limitation on information of the origin of the Bridgeland family. The original Alfred Bridgeland came to America in 1837 and to Illinois in 1846. He purchased a farm here that is still in control of the Bridgeland family. However we just cannot seem to get any good information about his descendents from the Kent, England area.3,12
