What you have been reading was the 'norm' at the time.
Just imagine you take a fancy to a non Quaker girl, and decide to get wed in the local church.
WRONG! The gentleman gets drummed out of the Quaker movement and is ostracised from all connection with the movement. (Not even other family members are allowed to liaise with you.)

Sounds like the Amish. Can't marry non Amish in their churches/barns, if you quit the Amish, can't have anything to do with you family, etc. So was one ostracized for being Quaker or for not accepting to the call to duty? Or both?

The rule was that being a Quaker one gets married by a Quaker in a Quaker house!
The marriage/birth registration was entered into a book at the monthly meeting.

I see, suppose a way to keep things pure & Quaker. Things were tough back then, a lot more tolerant now. Poor James, he'd have an easier go of things these days. Thank you for the download. Having a great time reading through it. Came across other Bonds' who may be related. In some way I'm sure.

Have a good read, possibly looking at the other Bond named people accounted for in later years in Bradford.
Signing out for the evening, been a long day.

Thanks Valerie, I'll check that out. Trying to find parents for my James Bond but is very hard. They have to be somewhere. Thanks again!

Don't forget the Quaker records didn't start till 1650 so you are looking for a marriage of James parents/subsequent birth of James in the parish records.
Loads of birth records only show son/daughter of father or mother (if legitimate).

Yea, I'm seeing that. I know I won't find his parents in them. Maybe possible relatives. I see the births only list the father, so far.
