Bonny


If you could throw more light onto the history of the surname BONNY I would be thankful. Email me using the link on the front page.

Most my Bonny ancestors I've researched lived in the Shoreditch/Hoxton area of London between approx 1820 and 1880. The family originally came from Kent where John Francis Bonny was born in 1805.
