BIOGRAPHY: From [ hadaway/harry/nti15188.htm]: 

BIOGRAPHY: James Bishop lived in Duxbury and Pembroke, Massachusetts. He married 
Mary Hudson on December 12, 1665. Mary's will was dated August 3, 1732 
and was probated on July 7, 1740. It indicates that she resided in 
Pembroke and that James had died prior to its writing. It mention her 
sons John, Hudson, James and Ebenezer; her deceased daughters, Abigail 
Bonney and Mary Lathley, and her still living daughters, Elizabeth Bonney 
and Hannah Simmons. 

BIOGRAPHY: Note: 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, 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.
