I have records showing this persons name was Joseph Bishop not Stephen.

I agree with Lynette McKee, after checking the convict list on Linc - there was no Stephen Bishop on the ‘Isabella Watson’ - the only ‘Bishop’ was Joseph along with the corresponding convict details.

Joseph was transported for stealing a handkerchief from a shop.

He was 5’53/4” tall light brown hair, brown eyes, fair complexion, could read and write, RC.

1 sister, Mary at Limerick
Uncle James.
