Bonds of Bury St. Edmunds area — genealogy

I’m starting to “migrate” my genealogical stuff over to this blog, in hopes that someone may have further leads to check out. The most important section is on the Bonds of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolkshire, England. The earliest pieces are below. Any further information would surely be appreciated. My own ancestors are in bold. In my entire chain of Bond-age, by the way, there is no James Bond, no Barry Bonds, no Municipal Bonds. But the list is shaken, not stirred.

——————————————————————————————————————–

Jonas Bond (b. ca. 1562-68, Woolpit, England; d. 30 Jul 1601, Bury St. Edmunds)
sister-in-law : Hester Woode (see below)
wife : Rose Woode (m. 23 Jun 1588, Rattlesden, Suffolk, England; d. 05 Aug 1602, Bury St. Edmonds)

Bury St. Edmunds is in western Suffolk. Woolpit is several miles east of BStE, barely south of the current A14 road, a bit less than halfway to Stowmarket, just west of Haughley. Jonas married Rose in 1588 in Rattlesden, her hometown, several miles south of Woolpit, not particularly noted for anything. They apparently lived in Rattlesden parish until the fall of 1590, when they moved to BStE. There was no record of a previous marriage for either Jonas or Rose; it would likely have been noted if it were otherwise.

——— Hester Woode (bapt. 19 Mar 1580; no children) Parents not listed in Rattlesden baptismal records. The George Woode connection is indicated by Hester’s living with Rose and Jonas, and that Hester is called a sister-in-law in Jonas Bond’s will.

possible relative : John Woode (m. Martha Hyon 12 Oct 1572, Rattlesden); child : Mary Woode (m. William Stephens ca. 1600, Haughley)

Abraham’s son George appears to be the last one to stay a long time in Rattlesden; the last non-funeral record of the Woode family is his daughter Elizabeth’s birth in 1636 and his son George’s wedding. Abraham’s son George is listed in the Rattlesden record transcription as the son of “Abraham & Anne”, which is incorrect, prob. carried over from surrounding records.

One thought on “Bonds of Bury St. Edmunds area — genealogy

  1. Not sure I can offer anything very helpful here, but having left the village of Onehouse, I used to travel regularly through Rattlesden on my way to Wood Green chapel.There are two main roads through the village, the lower road, which goes past the Brewers Arms PH, and the upper road which goes past the church and the Post Office (if it is still in the same location).The village is at the bottom of a valley (as much as Suffolk has valleys) with relatively steep hills and the river (brook?) Rat running through it at the bottom.Woolpit was originally named (so I was told) for the Wolf Pit on land behind the church, from where two legendary green children emerged.
