Family notes:
·         Unlike his cousins, Thomas Bond of Holwood and Richard Bond of Tresunger, who were identified as possible heirs of Earth Barton, James is not identified as dying without heirs. In 1718 Thomas clearly indicates to his heir and cousin Richard that Richard might someday inherit Earth – which implies an heir to Earth extant at the time, 8 years after James died.
Child of James and Susannah:
i. John Bond ( 256), born 1701 in Cornwall, England.
