About Robert Bond

Biography

From Descendants of Founders of New Jersey

Robert Bond was born in Kent County, England in 1596; came to New England about 1639, and died at Newark, New Jersey in April 1677 leaving a will. Bond was a Puritan who probably settled first at Lynn, Massachusetts. He was an educated man, although his occupation was blacksmith. By 1642 he had a daughter Mary by his first wife, whose full name is not now known and there were at least three more children by that marriage.

Robert Bond married in 1672 for his second wife, at Newark, Mary Calkins, daughter of Hugh Calkins and widow of Hugh Roberts. He is many times mentioned in the Newark records, now being a resident of that place and holding various positions in the town government. He died there in April of 1677, his second wife surviving him until 1700. There was at least one child by his wife Mary Calkins Roberts Bond

In about 1665 upon her father Robert Bond on leaving East Hampton, NY for New Jersey, he made arrangements with his son-in-law, Thomas Osborn, Jr. for the care of his homestead and land possessions. Thomas Osborn later purchased these properties from Robert Bond on September 7, 1668. History of Elizabeth, New Jersey By Edwin Hatfield [2]
