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) His will was written on Dec. 1, 1702 when he was "very sick and weak of body." Testimony was given on March 24, 1708 that certain witnesses did see him sign his own will. This is the probate of his will I guess. He must have been dead by then. His will was noted in the New York Calendar of Land Papers on January 3, 1708 [NY Calendar of Land Papers," iv (1704-1709), p. 81]. His widow could have taken quite a bit of time before she actually filed his will. So his death must have happened before January 3, 1708. (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) June 19, 1724 seems to be the date his will was proven (NY Wills, 10, p. 159; NY Colon. Mss. Land Papers, 4, p. 84). On June 18, 1724, his sister Mariana Ablin filed a petition stating that her uncle Dennis Rushé was unjustly detaining the will and effects of her brother Jean Bodin (English Manuscripts, v. LXVI, p. 89). Maybe the will was released right after this petition. (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) Burial Record of the Collegiate Dutch Church Reformed Church of New York City, Vol. I 1726-1783. Prepared by the Holland Society - date. (10) Year Book of the Holland Society of NY. 1899. Burials in the Dutch Church. (11) 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. (12) Article on Judge Joseph Lamb - soon aft March 1736. Other info says abt 1757. (13) Richmond County, NY, Deeds D, p. 131 - mention made of marriage. (14) Ronny Bodine examined the records in the registers in Rye, Sussex, England and did not find anything about Mary (or John) being born there. Mary Ann was baptized there on June 12, 1696. (15) Rye Parish Register of Baptisms, Burials and Marriages, 1682-1727, p. 15. Child of John Bodin and Hester, French parents. Daughter Mary Ann. Baptized 12 June 1696 at Rye. (16) 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. Pictures welcome if under 1 MB.
