James Bond and Elizabeth Pomfret were married on 22 March 1827 in Clavering, Essex.179 The Marriage Register of the Parish Church of Clavering in Essex states:

Married 22/3/1827. Both signed
Witnesses were John Pomfret (who signed X)  and Frances Bond and Susan Bond both of whom signed.

Frances and Susan Bond were sisters of James Bond. It seems that this part of the Bond family were all literate, or at least could sign their names.  This was true of their half sister, Mary on her marriage to Joseph Harrett. 62
