All the information (nearly all from Cheri) is published in full in the other sections of the report (menu above).
According to "The Complete Book of Emigrants
in Bondage" 1614-1775 by Peter Wilson Coldham at least two BANDYs were
transported to North America. The earliest in 1688 was a John BANDY of
Pulloxhill in Bedfordshire. R for America landed Feb 1688. Bedfordshire
(Assize Court-Norfolk Circuit). A Richard BANDY (alias ADAMS) was
transported for 7 years in April 1770 on Ship "New Trial" Master Douglas
McDougal to America. Ref T1/478. Surrey (Assize Court- Home circuit).
This latter might be "1815" Richard. We haven't tracked either of them
in England with any real confidence.
