BIOGRAPHY: From [http://www.gendex.com/users/h 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.
