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.
  • 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.
  • Many online family trees I have seen have James Bonds as the son of John Bones and Sarah Tasker. I'm sceptical, though, as I have three documents which place James's birth in 1785, and John and Sarah's son James was baptised in 1789. I wonder if he could instead be the son of Joseph and Elizabeth Bone baptised in 1784 in Southwark, where two of his sons were living in 1851.
