John Evitt Bishop, baptised Chichester 15 October 1855

Edward Maxwell Bishop, baptised Chichester 18 July 1857

Maxwell Stuart Bishop, baptised Chichester 19 August 1860

Charles Bishop, born Chichester and baptised 8 July 1861; died 11 July 1861

(Arthur?) Wallace Bishop, born Chichester c1863

Kate Elizabeth Bishop, born in York and baptised 4 March 1867

There are some public trees on Ancestry which say that Peter Bishop was born in Cornwall and Elizabeth Maxwell was born in Inverness-shire.

Laura is Laura Rosetta Bishop on her birth registration (Apr-Jun 1870 Headington) and Laura Rose Etta Bishop on her marriage to Henry Hitchmough in 1899 at St Catherine's, Edge Hill, Liverpool.

Another public tree on Ancestry has John Evitt marrying Catherine Murray in Armagh in 1828 with a daughter Catherine born 1836 in Armagh. The tree suggests that John died in New Zealand in 1864 and Catherine in 1870. Will see if I can confirm this.

Also, I saw a message on a board somewhere asking about the alleged death of Capt Peter Bishop in the Indian Mutiny.

I enjoyed this. John Bishop has a warm personality and no pretensions and the episode included showbiz, the gruelling work of a stoker, a lost ship and subsequent court-martial, travel and music. It also showed that our ancestors could move around, both geographically and in their careers.

I liked this one - Charlie did get about didn't he!

Interesting my cousin was at Northampton records office a few weeks back and she was talking to one of the record officers and he said ooh I think you need to cast your net a lot wider and she said would they have travelled that far and he said you'd be surprised how far people travelled in those days!

I've only just watched this episode and I really enjoyed it. I didn't think I would, and almost didn't record it, because John Bishop annoys me and I don't find him funny at all.

I was pleasantly surprised though and was hooked from start to finish. A very interesting and informative episode, unlike most of this series.
