Charles Bond was a French Canadian who came to Hong Kong on a sailing ship in 1869 and joined the police in 1870, acting as French interpreter. He  commuted his pension on retiring in 1880. At the age of 33 he married Anna Maria Reed, widow of Robert Reed. They had one daughter, Margaret Annie Bond, who lived to the age of 92. Charles Bond was apparently a widely known and popular personality in Hong Kong, a steward of the Hong Kong Club and an agent for Chiarini's Circus when they visited the Colony. He also seems to have been manager of the Shameen Hotel in Canton.
