Martha Rogers was born about 1718 in England, most likely in Wiltshire where her husband was from. She immigrated on the same ship with Joseph Bond and they married after earning money to pay for their passage. She married Joseph Bond in 1738 in Richland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. They had at least seven children during their marriage. They moved from Bucks County to North Carolina about 1750-51. [1] She died in 1760 in Rowan, North Carolina, at the age of 42, and was buried in Greensboro, North Carolina[2].

Contrary to Samuel Bond Garrett's 1913 book cited above, the Bond family genealogy manuscript of 1885 states that "J. Bond and Martha Rogers married in England, Europe," before they immigrated.[3]

The Bond family manuscript[3] lists the following children with the notations given:

Samuel married Elizabeth Beals in North Carolina
Ruth married Walton
Ann married Cahorn [?]

Arrival 1740 Maryland[4] If this arrival record is the correct record for Mary Rogers then the marriage did occur in England as she is recorded here as Mary Bond. It is not proven this is her arrival record but this record is found in a record if indentured immigrants.

Uncertain Origins

Absent a primary source Quaker birth record or Church baptismal document Martha's parentage is uncertain as is her date of birth. John Rogers and Ellen Pugh both in Wales have been removed as parents on this profile for lack of any documentation (and their own profiles are unsourced). Please do not attach parents to this profile without primary source documentation.

  3. 3.0 3.1 Bond Family Genealogy, 1885 manuscript in the possession of descendant T Stanton, written provenance of the document indicates it is a copy of records from at least four generations prior to 1885. The content of the manuscript shows that it was not available to Samuel Bond Garrett when he wrote his 1913 genealogy.
