The Bundy Family Crest
Bundy Family Crest
It is first important to understand that anything you find on the internet which proports to be a family "Coat of Arms" is probably a scam.  There is no Bundy Family Coat of Arms, and if someone advertises it, they are probably trying to get you to send money or pay for a fabricated history and a coat of arms that has nothing to do with this family.

During the Crusades, if a particular family in England who was NOT of noble status were to contribute to the crusader cause, then that family and the soldier who joined the crusade would be granted a "family crest", such as you see above.  This symbol would be abazed upon the breat plate and shield.

Usually the particular family member would select sopme particular symbol that was in some way associated with or had special meaning to that family.  

The Bundy Crest that you see here is a "hand clutching a Falcon's leg or claw.  This was because the family occupation of the time of the  Crusades was that of "Falcon Trainers for the King".   It is as simple as that and in those times that was a very respectable occupation and afforded the family close contact with the power of the Kings.  The wreath looking item you see below the symbol indicated that that family participated in the Crusades, as that was what the Knights would wear around the armor helmet.  It was Red and White.  The white represented purity of spirit and the red was symbolic of the willingness to shed their own blood in the cause of the crusade.

This Crest, would have been emplazed upon the shield of any member of the family in battle and would also have been on their breast plate.  Today all family people whose sir name is Bundy and whose origin is from England would be entitled to bear this family Crest.  Herodry in other countries such as Italy and France may have variations of the family name and have a different family crests.

The name variations that of this very ancient European Family are:  Bundy, Bandy, Bondy, Bondai, etc.  

The origin of the family in England at the time that my ancestors immigrated to America, was Roxton, Bedfordshire, England.  It does appear as thought the origin of this ancient family could be the region known as Villa de Bonde and the Woods of Bonde (both of which are outside of Paris.  The are also a region of Germany known as Bondy.  There are also family in Norway, Demark and Sweden by this same name.  The villa de Bondy and the Woods of Bondy were already existent at the time of the Roman Empire when their was a Roman Garrison located near the same site ans the Villa.

Family Crest "Bundy of Roxton"
That's right folks, The Bundy Families of the United States are documented as having more Authentic, Legitimate and Rightful claim to the British Throne than any of those who currently occupy Buckingham Palace.  However as far as we are concerned the Queen has nothing to worry about from us, as we have no desire to "take her job". Besides the Bundy Familes are not at the top of the list of rightful claimants. The family that is at the top of the list currently lives in Australia and we send them our respectful and friendly regards.

Queen Elizabeth II - NOT the rightful heir to the Throne of England
The Bundy Families of the United States (The Southern Branch) are also descendants of The same "Hastings Family"  whose descendants are in fact the Rightful Heirs to the British Throne.  The Bundy Families are descended through the female line of Alice de Hastings and others.  Although the Bundy Families are not at the top of the list of direct line to the thrown, they are of the same family and lineage and actually would have far more Rightful and Legitimate claim to the thrown than those who are current occupants of Buckingham Palace.

--apx 200 years gap in records between Simon de Bondy 1296- descent is speculative --  This family is presumed to be descended from the following French Families who migrated to England sometime prior to the arrival of William the Conqueror.  Upon his arrival this family already had lands in England for many generations and was listed in the census records known as the doomsday book.

Following is a translation of official French Records    

...Guillaume de Bondy and Jean de Bondy, riders Hand-Firm 1208-1215.....   (This term, "Riders-Hand-Firm" refers to mounted sodliers, possibly knights whose job it was to protect the roadways around outside of Paris and leading to neighboring cities and villages)
.....Jean de Bondy, rider Saint-Denis 1238-1296 Simon de Bondy, Hand-Firm rider 1330-1335 .....     
English Translation: One will find below vassal the large feudal ones enumerated above. The vassal direct ones of the lords of the pledged grounds of Bondy      
1150-1180 - Guillaume et Jean de Bondy - écuyers, vassaux de Livry      
1237-1240 - Jean de Bondy - écuyer, vassal  de l'abbaye de Saint Denis      
1238-1296 - Simon de Bondy - écuyer, vassal de Livry...
