Dear Silver Vixen
Thank you so much for the information. Do you have the Bishop line?
Here is what I know. Maude Adelaide was my grandmother. Rosiland and Orlando were twins. We called Rosiland "Aunt Cis". She never married and hated Germany her whole life. Her brother died in Flanders, her father was in the hospital during the bombing of Birmingham and she always said he was the victim of the bombing.
That I don't know is if Orlando was married. Do you?
If you have information on Robert Bishops line, would you share it with me? Or his wife, Mary Selina Hill. He retired a rich man, and I don't know how. My mother told me he owned a cutlery works in Sheffield, but I have no information on that. I just know that Cis, who never married, lived very well all of her life, and when she passed away, my father and his brother received a nice inheritance.
If you or anyone would like information on Maude, or her husband, Joseph William Rollason, please just ask. Again, thank you so much.

Hi, No I do not have a Bishop line, just helping out when & where I can. I can only find 1 record of an Orlando Francis Bishop getting married in London in 1907 but as your Orlando was single in the 1911 census is seems unlikely it was him. I have some information for you on Mary Selina Hill
1881 UK Census, living at 77 Woodland Street, Harbone, Stafford, Worcestershire
HILL James, head, 53 (1828) Pattern Maker (E & M) born Tipton, Staffs

James, son, 25 (1856) Pattern Maker, Smethwick
Mary S, daughter, 22 (1859) Milliner, Bradley, Staffs
Joseph, son, 20 (1861) Turner (Iron) Wolverhampton
