Book: 17th Century Isle of Wight Co VA by Boddie states:
The new members of the House who represented the county in 1653-54 were Daniel Boucher, Francis Hobbs, and Captain John Bond.
Captain John Bond was promoted to be Major of the Isle of Wight militia and also served in the House until 1660, with the exception of 1656 when he was sheriff. "In 1656 Major John Bond, sheriff of Isle of Wight complains that the county has been overrated in the list of tithables by 38 persons amounting to 1,292 pounds of tobacco.
Major John Bond was a dissenter of some sort as the Assembly in 1659 expelled him from his office of Justice in IOW for his "Schismatical tendancies." The resolution was as follows, "Whereas a complaint has been exhibited to this Assembly concerning the factious and schismatical demeanor of Major John Bond, and the same proved by several testimonies, is ordered that he hath shown himself to be unfit to be continued a magistrate so he shall henceforth be made incapable of any further public trust or employment." Major Bond died in 1678 and left a wife Dorothy and sons John and William.
Dorothy Bond, widow of Maj. John Bond, dec., and John Bond, son of said Maj. Bond do for 3000 lbs tbco. sell to Joseph Bridger land formerly bought from Capt. Francis Hobbs and Mary his wife,(no date). Jos. Bridger Jr., Robert Pitt, John Korner, Ann Richards.
In a deposition, John Bond states he is 45 years old. It is dated Aug 9, 1664.
