About Elizabeth Bonney

John Bonney was the son of Thomas Bonney and his second wife, Mary (Hunt) Bonney.In 1690, John married Elizabeth Bishop, the daughter of James Bishop and his wife, Mary (Hudson) Bishop.John and Elizabeth lived in Pembroke, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.

Elizabeth appears to have died between August 3, 1732 (when her mother's will was written which included her name) and June 26, 1738 (when her husband's will was written which does not mention her).

John's will mentions his sons: John, Ichabod, Perez and Joseph; his daughters: Ruth, Elizabeth, Deborah and Ann; and his grandchildren: Samuel, Abigail and Sarah Parris.

John Bonney died in Pembroke on November 16, 1745 at the age of 81.

nota bene

In his book, The Bonney Family, 1898, C. L. Bonney stated that John and James Bonney both married daughters of James Bishop, the Deputy Governor of the Connecticut Colony. This is not correct. Part of the confusion is caused by the fact that both the Pembroke and New Haven James Bishops had a wife named Mary and daughters named Elizabeth and Abigail. However the New Haven James Bishop's daughter, Elizabeth Giles, of New Haven , was born May 3, 1657 (7 years before John Bonney) and on September 12, 1667 married Eleazer Giles and his daughter, Abigail, was born October 30, 1659 (12 years before James Bonney) and she married (1) John Talmage and (2) William Maltbie. Mary Bishop's will is further proof of the mistake by C. L. Bonney.

Elizabeth Bishop17 was born 1666 in Pembroke, Plymouth, Massachusetts17, and died 1733

She married John Bonney on 17 Dec 1713 in Pembroke, MA17, son of Thomas Bonney II and Dorcas Sampson.
