"Francis Bodine, born probably in England, was some time a resident of
Staten Island, certainly until 1726, when, being charged with some
offence against the king, "came into court, and, rather than contend
with the king, confessed judgment and submitted to a fine". He was a
witness to a deed for land at Charles Neck, 7 March, 1736, after which
his name disappears from the records of Richmond County, and he
doubtless removed to Cranbury, Middlesex County, New Jersey, with his
sons Francis and Vincent, and there died. He married Maria, daughter of
James Dey, of Staten Island, by his first wife, Mary Mulliner. The issue
of this marriage is somewhat uncertain, and there were probably other
children than those given below."
