Plot 864: Annie Bishop (née Langham) (1853-1951)

Annie was born 21st August 1853 in Islington, the daughter of Benjamin Langham, an auctioneer’s clerk, and his wife Rosanna (née Hart)

Her father died in 1870 and in 1871 the census records that Annie was temporarily head of the family as her widowed mother was absent from home. She was seventeen, working as a dressmaker and machinist and looking after her five younger siblings aged between three and eleven. They were living in Halton Road, Islington.

Annie married Mathew Bishop, a wheelwright born in Buckland, Bucks, at St Stephen’s, Islington 21st April 1877. They were to have four daughters and five sons.

In 1881 they were living at Regent Park Terrace in Finchley and Mathew was following his trade as a wheelwright. The next year they suffered the loss of little William who was just one year old.

By the time of the 1901 census they had moved to 59, Osborn Road, Acton and Mathew was described as a coach builder and they had a lodger who was a coach painter, doubtless working alongside Mathew. Annie must have had her hands full with five children whose ages ranged from two to thirteen.

Mathew passed away in 1923 aged seventy four. Annie remained in the same house and in the 1939 register she is shown as living with her unmarried daughter Annie Ida Bishop
