Bundy History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The ancestors of the Bundy family migrated to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Bundy is for a husbandman, or a farmer. The name stems from the Old English/Saxon roots bonda and bunda, which were used to indicate such a person. "There are several persons called Bonde in Domesday [Book], one of whom is somewhat contradictorily called 'liber homo.' [1] [2]

Early Origins of the Bundy family

The surname Bundy was first found in Somerset in the Taunton district and in Devon.

They "have their principal homes in the west of England in Devon and Somerset, and in the east of England in Norfolk and Suffolk; they are also established in Lancashire and Staffordshire. Six centuries ago the name was still to be found in numbers in Norfolk and Suffolk, as well as in the neighbouring counties of Lincoln, Hunts, and Cambridge, and also in Oxfordshire, in the forms of Bond and Bonde." [3]

By the time of the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273, the family were scattered throughout ancient Britain: Emma le Bonde in Huntingdonshire (1271); Robert le Bonde in Worcestershire; and Walter le Bond in Cambridgeshire. The same rolls also had an entry for the name as a forename in Norfolk: Bonde Brit. [4]

Kirby's Quest of Somerset had two entries both "1 Edward III" (during the first year's of King Edward III's reign): Robert le Bonde; and John le Bonnde. [5]

Bundy Spelling Variations

Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bundy family name include Bond, Bonde, Bunde, Bundy and others.

Bundy migration to the United States

To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Bundy family to immigrate North America:

  • Eliz Bundy, who arrived in Virginia in 1665 [6]

  • Fred Bundy, aged 24, who arrived in New York in 1919 aboard the ship "Lake Yelverton" from Glasgow, Scotland [11]

Bundy migration to New Zealand

Emigration to New Zealand followed in the footsteps of the European explorers, such as Captain Cook (1769-70): first came sealers, whalers, missionaries, and traders. By 1838, the British New Zealand Company had begun buying land from the Maori tribes, and selling it to settlers, and, after the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, many British families set out on the arduous six month journey from Britain to Aotearoa to start a new life. Early immigrants include:

Bundy Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century
  • Mr. Daniel Bundy, (b. 1836), aged 22, English carpenter from Northampton travelling from Gravesend aboard the ship "Zealandia" arriving in Lyttelton, Christchurch, South Island, New Zealand on 21st September 1858 [12]
