Thanks Brian--it's a good start.I'd like to quiz my gran more but she's in broadstairs /kent an i'm up in scotland .Also she is as deaf as a post ho hum.My grandfather bishop was named peter he had 2 brothers.One of them was in the merchant marine but this is not the man i am asking about in here unfortunately.Possibly my grandfathers uncle or that side of my family.There is a "story" of one family member running away to sea,marrying an irish girl etc and leaving the family home so that it went into receivership when the owner died--allegedly the maid burn the deeds.Ahh the joys of family history.The place was called blythe hall--it's possible that this is the steward Walter Bishop.I will really have to chat to my gran a bit more.
