In our parish church we have a clock with an engraving on it that says 'The Gift of the Hon. Edward Trelawny the Bond Major 1737'. Does anybody know what a Bond Major was/is?
Unfortunately I have no picture and the question was originally posed in the 1930s by Looe Old Cornwall Society, a scrap book of which I am working my way through. I am not even sure which of the two church's that serve East and West Looe the clock is in, and as access is very limited at this time, I am not able to find out, or get a picture.
