Bonds was established in 1915 by Mr George Allan Bond, an American who came to Australia in the early twentieth century. He started importing women's hosiery and gloves. In 1917 he began manufacturing hosiery in Redfern, Sydney. From 1918 he moved to Camperdown and began also making underwear. In 1932, Bond built Australia’s first cotton spinning mill at Wentworthville in western Sydney. This particular section of Wentworthville was soon renamed Pendle Hill in honour of Mr. Bond's Scottish family origins. For this purpose and facilitating easy access to Bond's Spinning Mills for employees, a railway station was created. In fact a whole new suburb was created.
