Notes for John Bell
John Bell was evidently a son of George and Sarah Bell. This is concluded because of the association of the Bond family with his father, who was executor of Dorothy Bond, the mother of John Bond, in 1684. John’s sister (name not known) was wife of John Bond, who survived her and made his will March 15, 1687. Legatees of thiw will were William Maynard; William Watson, if he die to go to son John Bond; to Mr. John Bond all land and property, to John Harmon all of wife’s clothing (she was apparently deceased); John Bell, my wife’s brother to be executor. John Bell to live on plantation with my two children, “my wife’s and my own” and bring them up with the estate to learning. If son John die without issue, to Will Watson and Wm. Maynard. Witnesses were John Porter, Reuben Gladhill, Thomas Toudell.479
