Did You Know?

  • It doesn't look like Mary Pavey had any children with her first husband James Martin, but her children with her second husband James Bonds included two sets of twins: Iden Bones and James Bones in 1811 and Henry Bond and Mary Bones in 1816.
  • Given that the only other contemporaneous individual I've found with the same unusual name was five years old at the time, I think it likely that the Iden Bonds named as the informant on Mary Pavey's death certificate was her son Iden Bones.
  • In 1841 James Bonds and Mary Pavey were living at Catts Cottage in Rotherfield with their youngest son Jesse Bones. Also living at Catts Cottage were a John Pavey and his family, including his young son Iden Pavey who shared his unusual forename with James and Mary's eldest son Iden Bones.
  • In 1851 Jesse Bones and his brother Iden Bones were living in the same house in Poplar.
  • Iden Bones seems to appear twice in the 1851 census: once listed with his wife in Poplar, and once as a patient in St Thomas Hospital.
