Biography
  • Captain John Bishop, born on 7 July 1803 in Bisley, Gloucestershire, first went to sea in September 1817 as an apprentice and later commanded the brig 'Alice' in 1832, the Brig 'Lucy' in 1836, and the barque 'Greenhow' in 1837. In 1838 John Bishop married Mary Watkins of Overcourt, Stroud and on 27 August 1838 they departed England from Liverpool in the brig 'Dorset' captained by John Bishop, as part of the first pioneers to settle Port Lincoln, where they arrived in February 1839. After the deaths of his wife and infant daughter in 1839, John Bishop married Esther Elizabeth Kemp and together they had seven children. Captain John Bishop was a prominent member of Port Lincoln, working as a storekeeper, banker, and wool trader. He died in 1865. Joseph Kemp Bishop (1846-1937), second son of John and Esther, also worked as a sheep farmer and storekeeper in Port Lincoln, and Joseph's youngest son Myles Kemp Bishop worked as a wool classer in South Australia, Victoria and Queensland. The Reverend Octavius Hammond (1810-1878) was the father of Elizabeth and Ethela Hammond, the first and second wives of Joseph Bishop. Reverend Hammond trained as a surgeon in London, and after arriving in Adelaide in 1850 and working for a time as an assayer, he became the surgeon-Superintendent at Poonindie Mission near Port Lincoln, as well as a priest at St. Matthew's Church in Poonindie, and first incumbent of St. Thomas' Church in Port Lincoln.
