He began his business career with the old-established firm of Turnbull & Co. His experience was afterwards enlarged by travel in Australia, mainly in Queensland. On his return to Wellington he set up as an indent agent. He later joined the staff of the Mutual Life and Citizens Assurance Co.

Mr BISHOP in his younger days was a well-known sportsman. He was a keen yachtsman, a member of the Star Boating Club, and a representative player for Wellington Rugby football. He was, too, a foundation member of the Wellington Chess Club, and for some time its secretary. For many years he had taken an active part in Christian work.

He was 29 yrs older than his bride whom he had carried ashore as a baby when her parents first landed at Petone Beach in 1877. He tried to be a business man, a farmer in the Wairarapa but he was best as a scholarly man and priest to the Catholic Apostolic Church in Webb St, Wellington.

In 1907 he tried his hand at farming in Konini, a small town north of Pahiatua but returned to Wellington in 1908.

He lived with his daughter, Peggy & Winston TAYLOR at Plimmerton in his last years, and died at 85 years just a month before Peggy's twins were born in 1942. He was buried in Karori Cemetery, Wellington with his wife, Edith Mary DAVEY.

Was a loving grandmother and very artistic. Her home was 'home' to many, and the dining table was enormous and often full.

She was a handsome woman, always well dressed in tailor-made suits, and had a lovely fresh comlexion and pretty curly hair. She liked "red" colour, and she had quite a lot of red china, cups, saucers, plates and vases. She had cream curtains with quaint Dutch figures embroidered on the hems. She and John were no gardeners but the flower beds produced perennials, roses bloomed on the verandah rails, and sweetpeas climbed up the wall towards the upstairs bedrooms. Nasturtiums and blackberries rambled over an old wooden wall.

Edith Mary DAVEY died after a gall bladder operation, and is buried in Karori Cemetery, Wellington. (Area 01, Block A, Row 08, Plot 013)"
