William Bracken was a hunter, tradesman, and surveyor who explored Kentucky in the last decades of the 18th century. In 1773 he traveled down the Kentucky River with brothers George, Robert, and James McAffee. They surveyed the area around present day Frankfort and Harrodsburg. Their surveys of what is now Bracken County, named for William Bracken, were among the first made in Kentucky.
