Welcome to the beginnings of our BOUND Family Webpage. I'm Jan Cortez, and the webmaster of the site. I've never done a family home page, so I'm just not sure where to start, so if you find things a bit out of order, have patience! In time I hope to keep adding more materials that have been collected from the Bound Cousins and become a bit more organized. Your thoughts, comments, and additions are always welcome.

I have never been able to get back any further than my 4th Great Grandfather DAVID BOUND. David was born about 1773, where I have no idea. It has been said that he was from England, and also from New Jersey. I've heard Bound Brook, NJ, and the town was named after him and his family, but, I have done more disproving that than proving it. I've also heard he was from Tom's River, NJ. Have never found anything on that either, so I continue to search.

The earliest I have found David Bound is in Cranbury, Middlesex Co., NJ, where he married my 4th Great Grandmother CATHARINE SNEDEKER in February of 1793 at the First Presbyterian Church of Cranbury.
