Abstract: Let $ (X,d),(Y,d')$ be metric spaces, $ \mathcal{F}$ a family of maps from X into Y. Let $ {x_0} \in X.\mathcal{F}$ is said to be pointwise-bounded if for each $ x \in X,\sup \{ d'(Tx,T{x_0})\vert T \in \mathcal{F}\} $ is finite, and is uniformly bounded if for each $ p > 0,\sup \{ d'(Tx,T{x_0})\vert T \in \mathcal{F},d(x,{x_0}) \leqq p\} $ is finite. The major result of this paper is to place a sufficient condition on the maps in $ \mathcal{F}$ to ensure that, if X is complete, a pointwise-bounded family of continuous maps is uniformly bounded, and to show that this result is best possible.
