Bruce Bishop created the topic: Bishop family.
My great great grandfather, John Bishop was born on 7th July 1803 at Barnthorne Farm, Bisley. His parents were William & Mary (nee Vaill) Bishop. He had siblings, Mary,b.6/3/1795, who married (1)Charles Chamberlin & (2) Mr. Grosvenor; Elizabeth b.15/3/1797; Joseph b.30/3/1799; William b.31/5/1801, m. Mary Hall; Jane b.17/2/1805, m. Joseph Forty; Uriah b.10/5/1808; George Vaill b.28/2/1810. I am seeking any information re the above or their descendants and also would be grateful to receive photographs of any Bishop headstones in Bisley cemetery. John Bishop went to sea at an early age and eventually captained the 80 ton brig \"Dorset\" and in 1838/9 sailed to South Australia and became one of the first settlers of Port Lincoln. Should anyone be interested I have a wealth of information regarding the voyage and his descendants.

I am stuck on the Bishops in my family tree . I have a John Bishop born @ 1809 at Eastcombe I think he married Rebecca/Rebekah Fawkes in 1832 at Woodchester they moved to London soon after . I have traced Rebecca's family fairly easily but am really stumped on the Bishop's any assistance would be gratefully recieved . Rebecca and John were my Great Great Great Grandparents
