In Reply to: Captain John Bond - Rawdon, Nova Scotia by Brent MacDonald of 4549

Does anyone know of Elizabeth Bond? She is the daughter of Captain John Bond and his wife, Elizabeth Lloyd of SC - emmigrated to Rawdon, NS after the British were evacuated from SC. They came to NS with other loyalists - but I do not know the name of the ship they traveled in.

Elizabeth married Henry More, aka Frederick Henry Smith, aka Henry Moon, aka "The Lunar Rogue." (You can google "the Lunar Rogue" to find out background on this VERY colorful character). She and Henry had 3 children, Eleanor Charlotte and (? Winkworth Smith and Josiah Smith.) I have heard that after Henry was freed from prison in New Brunswick, he left for the United States. Elizabeth re-married to William Custance (from England) and they had several more children. I have read that Josiah and Winkworth took the name of their step-father, William Custance.

Does anyone know what happened to this family?
Mary
