This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


James Bond son of Thomas Bond who wrote will in 1767 married in 1770 Mary Williamson.

James Bond’s inventory presented Jan 29 1791 at Bertie Ct
on July 9 1791 the Negroes were evaluated and divided into shares. widow Mary Bond received one share and another was allotted to Thomas Bond and wife Rhoda, daughter of the dec’d . The other children of the dec’d were John, Thomas, Lewis and Mary Bond. John Bond received his share 7 Dec 1796. Thomas received his share 23 Feb 1803 and John was appt. at this time guardian of the orphan Lewis Bond. [there is no mention of Mary, the orphan]
