Bond, Peter (c. 1765–?)

Peter Bond and William Morgan were found guilty on 15 September 1784 at the Old Bailey, London, of breaking into a yard and stealing five worsted stockings, one copper pot, two pewter dishes, one pewter plate, and three live geese. Sentenced to 7 years transportation, the men were sent to Newgate Gaol and, in April 1785, to the Ceres hulk. Bond was then sent to Censor hulk and arrived in Sydney in January 1788 aboard the Alexander as part of the First Fleet.

Bond received a 30 acre grant of land at Mulgrave Place in 1794. He was still living on his grant in 1800, without family. He had sold the land to Commissary James Williamson but was still working it. The Sydney Gazette reported on 4 November 1804 that Williamson was offering 'Bond's' land for lease. No further information has been traced for Bond.
