Sources: (1) Date is based on a universal tradtion, but undocumented by original sources. Place is somewhat more documented having been mentioned by French authorities. They called him "Boudin, fugitif de Medit" (A N Paris, TT #259). (2) Date his will was noted in "NY Calendar of Land Papers," iv (1704-1709), p. 81. (3) Date of death is uncertain. Date of "aft Mar 7, 1737" is the date she may have signed a deed with 2nd Jean (Richmond Co. Deeds, Book D, p. 131-134). See also NY Wills, 6, p. 88; 7, p. 147 and NY Wills 7, p. 312. Shemay have lived past March or May, 1736/37, a date when a Jean Bodine signed a deed with his wife "Hester." (4) R. Bodine examined records in the Rye, Sussex, England registers and found nothing about his birth there. The birth date January 23, 1681 that some have for him is very questionable. There seems to be no real source for it. A more likely birth year is somewhere between 1681 and 1682. He was not born yet in September of 1681 when his parents fled France for England and he was 26 at the time of the 1707 Census of Staten Island. (5) Date will proven (NY Wills, 10, p. 159; NY Colon. Mss. Land Papers, 4, p. 84). (6) The year 1683-1684 is just a guess. She probably married in 1707 and she was probably one of the older children. I'm guessing she was born after her brother Jean since I think he was most likely the firstborn child. (7) It seems like she is unmarried in her brother John's will of January 1707 (though that is not absolutely clear). And since she is not named with her Bodine family in the Staten Island Census of the fall of 1707, then she must have gotten married that year. (8) Year Book of the Holland Society of NY. 1899. Burials in the Dutch Church. Will proven - 5/10/1744. See "NYGBR," v. 121, pp. 233-234 for more info. (9) Year Book of the Holland Society of NY. 1899. Burials in the Dutch Church. (10) Biographical History of the First Congressional District of New Jersey, v. 2, pp. 283 to 287 (The Williamstown Bodines) - abt 1690. However, he was under 16 at the time of the 1707 Census of Staten Island. Since he married in about 1717 or 1718, I'm estimating he was born about 1692. (11) Article on Judge Joseph Lamb - soon aft March 1736. Other info says abt 1757. (12) Richmond County, NY, Deeds D, p. 131 - mention made of marriage. (13) Ronny Bodine examined the records in the registers in Rye, Sussex, England and did not find anything about Mary (or John) being born there. This birth date of March 5, 1680 is very questionable. There is no source for it. (14) He was under 16 at the time of the 1707 Census of Staten Island, NY. So he must have been born aft 1691. Dave's Bodine Genealogy Website Email me with Revisions.
