Bishops Of Vigo Lane
A Memory of Yateley.
I was wondering if anyone knew of William Bishop a gardener of Sunnyside Vigo Lane as he was married to my get grt grandmother Sarah his 1st wife. I have photos of the house with them both in the gardens and my Nan used to tell me stories of staying there as a child. How she would go out on the common and meet with the travellers that used to stay there and they would all sit round camp fires and chat. She also said that she suffered with a bad chest and the country air was good for her. Also stories of the Parrott that my get grt grandmother had called Polly that used to impersonate people. I came to Yateley to see the house from a distance and also to the churchyard to find the graves. Hoping somebody might remember something about them
