Greetings from SC. The Rev. Samuel Fenner WARREN was Rector of the Parish of 
St. James Santee. Not sure if he is the Samuel WARREN referred to in the 
above will. See last reference about Col. Samuel WARREN. The RANDELL name 
does not appear in the existing parish records.

I find the following information in "St. James Santee, Plantation Parish: 
History & Records, 1685- 1925.

A Jacob BOND is mentioned in a description of land in the 1744 will of Noah 

p. 145-
"One of the local military leaders was a former militia captain (1808), Jacob 
Bond I'on (1782- 1859), a graduate of Yale, who entered the United States 
Army on March 12, 1812, as captain of the 1st Regiment of Artillery and 
served until 1815. Upon the reorganization of the army at the close of the 
war, he was retained. The fortifications at Charelston and Savannah were 
under his command. After the war he continued to maintain a life-long 
interest in the military and in 1830 was chosen to command the Volunteer 
Battalion raised in St. James Santee, Christ Church, St. Thomas, St. 
Stephens, and St. Johns Berkeley. (SCHM, XXV, (1924), pp. 14- 15.)

A planter, I'on had inherited his father's property, which included Clayfield 
Plantation in Christ Church Parish and Springfield Plantation (1,042 acres) 
in St. James Parish. Tax returns for 1824 also list his ownership of 964 
acres and thirty slaves in St. Thomas and St. Dennis Parish at Spring Hill 
Plantation. His chief plantation, however, was Fairlawn, later called 
Furman's, near the head of the Wando River. 

Bond also owned a house on Sullivna's Island where he served as intendant 
(1823) and warden (1824) for Moultrieville (Bio. Dir. of SC House of 
Rep:1775- 1790, Vol. III). From his large house at Moultrieville, I'on 
dispensed hospitality to friends and relatives. His house was a favorite 
meeting place for young officers stationed at Fort Moultrie. One of his most 
frequent guests was a young lieutenant with red hair, William Tecumseh 

A bachelor, I'on was a family favorite with his numerous nieces and nephews. 
Enormously fat and jolly, he was affectionately known by the family as 'Old 

A member of the planter governing elite, Bond served, as had Col. Samuel 
WARREN, as president of the South Carolina Senate (1822- 1828), but was 
defeated for governor in 1825. After his death in 1859 Bond was buried, as 
his father had been, in the BOND family cemetary at Hobcaw Plantation on the 
Wando River."
