Frederick Bligh Bond, who went primarily by the name Bligh, was the son of a reverend and later in life he became a bishop of the Catholic church himself. Though he maintained a lifelong tie to seemingly conservative religion until his death in 1945 from a heart attack, Bond was also known for leading a not too secret double life as a follower and researcher of the paranormal. A member of the Freemasons, the Theosophical Society, the Society for Psychical Research, and the Ghost Club, Bond was also the editor of Psychic Science between the years 1921-1926. In addition to his many achievements and interests, Bond is most notoriously known for claiming to have received historical archaeological information from deceased monks through the practice of automatic writing.
