 Mazey Bond was baptized in Stanstead Mountfitchet, Essex.105 The Baptism Register of Stanstead Mountfitchett has the entry:

Mazey daughter of John and Elizabeth Bond was born 1/3/1788 and was baptised 22/8/1790.

Mazey Bond had the following children:


Thomas Bond was  baptized on 7 March 1813 in Stanstead Mountfitchet, Essex.105 The Baptism Register at Stanstead Mountfitchett states:

Thomas son of Mazey Bond Spinster Base baptised 7/3/1813

It was difficult to read the name Mazey. It could have been Mebley. However, a few years later Mazey had another child, and Mazey was clearly written. Both children were base born (i.e. were illegitimate) since at the time Mazey was a spinster.

In another Baptism Register is the entry

Tommas son of Marther Bond Base baptised 7/3/1813

In the Bishops Transcripts (D/CR 336) 149 Masey is entered:

Thomas Bond son of Mercy Bond of Stansted, Base, Spinster was baptised 5/3/1813
Frances Bond daughter of Mercy Bond of Stansted, Base,Spinster was baptised 13/4/1817

Often the details in the Baptism Registers are written by the Church Warden or other official. Some of these had difficulty writing and spelling.

However, the Bishops Transcripts are often written by the Vicar and are more clearly written. The disadvantage is that the Vicar would often copy the Baptism Register, and if he thought that there were errors he would correct them. In this case he has changed Mazey to Mercy.
