This name seems to have come to Amer-
ica from England and is also found among
the Dutch immigrants at New Amsterdam.
The family herein traced was very early
located in Massachusetts, whence it has
been distributed over a wide area and has
contributed much to the general develop-
ment and prosperity of the nation.

(I) Thomas Low, of Chebacco Parish,
Ipswich, now Essex, Massachusetts, was
born in England, and is believed to have
been a son of Captain John Low, master of

the ship "Ambrose", and vice-admiral of the
fleet that brought over Governor Wln-
throp's colony in 1630. The cane and Bible
which are said to have been the property of
Captain John have been handed down in the
families of the Essex Lows and are still
owned by one of them. The Bible was
"Imprinted at London by Christopher Bar-
ker, Printer to the Queenes most excellent
Majestie, dwelling in Pater Noster Rowe at
the signe of the Tegreshead Anno 1579".
Thomas Low was in Ipswich as early as
1641, and according to his own deposition
was born in 1605. He was a maltster, and
died September 8, 1677. His wife Susannah
died in Charlestown, August 19, 1684, aged
about eighty-six years. Their children:
Margaret, born in England, married, April
8, 1657, General Davidson ; Thomas, born
1632; Sarah, 1637, married Joseph Stafford;
John, mentioned below.

(II) John, second son of Thomas and Su-
sannah Low, was undoubtedly born in Ip-
swich, Massachusetts, died there about
1695, leaving an estate valued at one hun-
dred and sixty-five pounds. He was a malt-
ster, succeeding to the business of his fa-
ther which he continued until about the
time of his death. He married, December
10, 1661, Sarah, daughter of John and Eliza-
beth Thorndike, of Beverly. Children :
John, mentioned below; Elizabeth, born Oc-
tober 18, 1667: Margaret, January 26, 1669;

1678; Martha, born September, 1670: Jos-
eph, April 18, 1681 ; Hannah, July 13, i68s.

marriage appears. His wife bore the name
of Dorcas and they had children in Che-
bacco : John, mentioned below; Thomas,
born March 5, 1602; Hannah, February i,
1694; Nathaniel, baptized November 15,
1696.

Anna (Annable) Low, was baptized March
18, 1722. at the Hamlet Parish Church in
Ipswich, Massachusetts, died at Barre,
Massachusetts, in 1760. His death was the
result of a fall from a haymow. Tradition
says that he owned the last slaves held in
Massachusetts, but this is manifestly im-
possible because slaves were held in that
state after 1760. He married (first) about
1751. Anna Rice, who died without issue;

This name is said to be from the
BOND Anglo-Saxon word, bonda,

meaning a householder, proprie-
tor or husbandman. The word is latin-
ized "paterfamilias," according to one au-
thoritv, "and rightly enough as it would seem,
because much in the same sense in compo-
sition we use husbandman or husband or
husbond." The name Le Bond occurs in
the Hundred Rolls. There are several per-
sons called Bonde in the Domesday Book
of England, one of whom is somewhat con-
tradictorily called "liber homo." On refer-
ence to Domesday Book it will be found
that numerous estates were held in England
by families of the name of Bond in the time
of Edward the Confessor and through later
years down to the formation of the survey
by William the Conqueror. They held es-
tates in the counties of Cornwall, Dorset,
Essex. Kent. Hants, Berks. Bradford. .Suf-
folk, Gloucester, Northampton and York,
and in several counties held two or more
estates. Whether these were held by a few
wealthy families or by as many families as
there were estates has not been clearlv ascer-
tained, but it is probable that the families
were numerous. The most distinguished
family of the name in England for the last
three or four centuries trace their lineage
to Earth and Holewood in the county of
Cornwall ; some of the old writers of herald-
ry speak of stirps antiquissima Bondorum
of that county.

There is a tradition — a very common sort



of tradition — that three brothers of the
name of Bond came to this country about
the middle of the seventeenth century. One
of them Thomas, said to have been a phy-
sician, settled in Virginia or Maryland. An-
other of the three, John, settled in Newbury,
Massachusetts, and was proprietor in 1662,
having descendants in New England, New
York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan.
The other, William, said to have been a
merchant, settled in Watertown, Massachu-
setts, and from him are descended most of
the family of the name of Bond in New
England. The results of the researches of
H. G. Somerly in England have tended to
discredit part of this tradition.

(T) Jonas Bond, of Bury Saint Edmunds,
county Suffolk, England, married a woman
whose christian name was Rose, and whose
surname was perhaps Wood. He probably
moved to Bury Saint Edmunds, after the
birth of his second child from Hawley or
W^oolpit, where he owned some houses, ac-
cording to the evidence of his will. He died
in August, 1601, and was buried August 5,
1601. Children: Oliver, the "eldest son";
John, "the elder"; John, "the younger",
baptized December 26, 1591 ; Bartholomew;
\\'illiam, baptized December 28, 1595;
Thomas, mentioned below; Elizabeth, bap-
tized March 12, 1599; Margaret, baptized
December 10, 1600.

(H) Thomas, son of Jonas and Rose
Bond, was baptized September 8, 1597. In
his will his father left him the house at
A\'oolpit. He was by occupation a maltster
and his place of residence and also of busi-
ness was Bury Saint Edmunds. His will
was dated November 5, 1658, and proved
March 10. i^'59. at the prerogative court of
Canterbury in London. He married a wo-
man whose baptismal name was Elizabeth,
but whose maiden surname remains un-
known. Children: Thomas, born Septem-
ber 22, 1622; John, February 5, 1624; Wil-
liam, mentioned below; Henry, April 5,
1628; Elizabeth, March 12, 1630; Francis,
May 31, 1632; Marv, January 31, 1636;
Jonas. August 5, 1638.

(Ill) William, son of Thomas and Eliza-
beth Bond, and the immigrant ancestor of
the Bond family, was baptized at Bury
.Saint Edmunds. Suffolk county, England,
September 8, 1625. His father in his will

ing at the time in America. He is supposed
