Brentford Families - Bond and BoxallOur Bond Family invites queries and information from anyone who may be related or have knowledge of our Bond, Boxall, and Dodd ancestry. John Bond's son Frederick Bond moved away from the Brentford area. He married Ann Sprosen in Fulmer and settled and raised their family in Hughendon Bucks.
Bond familyJohn Bond left a PCC written in 1840, proved in 1855 (several years after his death) leaving properties in Poppets Parlor in Old Brentford. The family has provided a transcript of his will and also Bond family descendancy details.
Heather added 'We are looking for old photos or drawings of Poppet Parlour, Pump Alley, Brentford or any of John Bond's holdings.' We are also interested in the middle name of John's son, William Dodd Bond. I suggested it might be the maiden name of a grandmother (or great grandmother) or may be a godfather? Please contact for more information on the Bonds of Brentford.Top
FindingsThe tithe provides details of John BOND's property ownership in 1839, property refs 110,111,112.
The properties at 110 are Poppets Parlor, described as '8 houses and yard' occupying 9 perches (ie around 270 square yards). 9 inhabitants, not 8, were listed. Ref 111, described as a 'Court' - was an open area (8 perches - around 240 sq yards). The house (112) occupied 2 perches - around 60 square yards.
I think Poppets Parlor would be two storey brick buildings, quite small, one or possibly two rooms on each floor, and likely to be built before 1800. Poppets Parlor was just to the west of the Saluation Almshouses (6 High Street).
In the 1841 census John BOND was living on Pump Alley near the High Street corner, to the west of Poppets Parlor. He was 71, Independant, not born in Middlesex. His wife Ann was 69, also not born in Middx. Their son William, who is referred to in his father's will, was 47 and a tailor. Emma Bond (31) and Ann Bond (15) completed the household, the three children (or was Ann a grandchild?) were all born in Middx.
In the 1851 census Ann Bond, John's widow, was lodging with her son-in-law Edward RICHARDSON and his wife Emma on Ealing Lane, Brentford. Ann was born in Farnham, Surrey.Top
Boxall familyThis website includes several Boxall references, including publicans, a baker, corn merchant and a gingerbread baker - see the will of William Boxall, 1851 for details of part of the Brentford Boxall family.
Ann Boxall was born in Farnham, Surrey around 30 miles from Brentford. She married in Hanwell in 1792 and was of New Brentford at the time. Perhaps she was part of the Boxall family which settled in Brentford?Top
