Matrilineal Monday: Cruisin' Down the mtDNA highway: ELIZABETH BOND

My great X 8 grandmother was ELIZABETH BOND born Feb 28, 1683 Beverly, Essex Co MA. She was the daughter of JOHN BOND II and EMMA GRAVES.

ELIZABETH BOND married JOSEPH PRIDE on Dec 17, 1703/1703 in Beverly Essex Co MA. They continued to reside in Beverly for about eight years.  Their three eldest daughters, ELIZABETH, JANE & AMY PRIDE were born there.  A baptismal record for the eldest daughter ELIZABETH was recorded in the records of the First Church in Beverly:

1704 July 25. Beverly MA First Church Records. This day ELIZABETH [Bond] PRIDE Wife of JOSEPH PRIDE did publickly & Solemnly own ye Covenant of Gd  & had her child baptized, named ELIZABETH. SOURCE: Essex Institute Historical Collections Vol 37, Peabody Essex Museum

Sometime between 1710 and 1712, the PRIDE family moved to Gloucester, Essex Co MA. There two more children were born: JOHN PRIDE in 1712, and MARY PRIDE on April 30, 1716.

Just a short time later, on May 8, 1716,  ELIZABETH BOND PRIDE died of child bed fever in Gloucester, Essex Co MA.  She was 33 years old.

Apparently her husband JOSEPH PRIDE remarried to SARAH, and had three more children. In 1726 he moved with wife & several of his children to Falmouth, York (now Cumberland) Co, Maine.

Have a great day!
