The Family Tree

Simpson Bishop
1818-?

Simpson Bishop was one of the children of John Bishop and his wife Elizabeth (née Simpson) of Soham, Cambridgeshire.

Simpson married Elizabeth Taylor of Soham, and the couple went on to bear seven or eight children before Elizabeth's death in approximately 1858-1861.

Simpson and his family moved to Little Wapses Farm in Twineham, West Sussex at the time of the 1851 census, working in agriculture - perhaps as tenant farmers. Next to them at Great Wapses Farm was the Male family, also from Cambridgeshire.

The family return to Fordham, Cambridgeshire in time for the birth of what was to be the last child in 1858, and they appear living at 'The Black Cottage' without the mother of the family, but joined by son James Simpson Bishop's wife and 6mth old daughter.
