Bond Street was first known as Chemin de la Madelaine, as it led to La Madelaine Chapel. This had been built in the north-west corner of the present churchyard in about the 10th century, to serve the cluster of fishermen's huts which then made up St Helier. In the 15th and 16th centuries the Chapel was turned into a house for the poor, but by the 18th century it had fallen into ruins.

In the 16th century, Le Moulin à Foulon, worked by the Town stream, was built on the corner of the present Bond and Conway Streets.
