Notes for Francis (Francois) Bodine

He was probably born between 1690 and 1699. He was mentioned in his brother John's will before he left for sea in 1707. Most likely he was named for his maternal grandfather Francis Bridon. About 1717/1718, he married Maria Dey; although, there appear to be uncertainties concerning this marriage (Sinnott, p. 164). He remained on Staten Island until at least 1736. In 1726, he was charged with an offence against the king. Rather than contend against the king, he "confessed judgment and submitted to a fine" (Richmond County Court Records). On March 7, 1736, he witnessed to a deed at Charles Neck (Richmond County Deeds, Book D, p. 131). He then disappears from the records on Staten Island. He probably had moved to Cranbury, Middlesex County, New Jersey with his sons, Francis and Vincent, where he died. This information comes from the Mary Sinnott book, page 163. He may have had more children than those given below.
