Notes for William Bond
A builder, according to [BT] [3], although no source is given. [BT] continues: “After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes many French Protestants fled their country to settle in the south of England. They were for the most part merchants and skilled tradesmen and included lace makers, tapestry makers and cloth weavers. They intermarried with the southern English and tradition maintain that there was a strong French strain in the Bond family.
A lot of early Bond records are lost due to fire in local (Shipton?) parish church. Some information may be available in Beaminster Cathedral.”
