Historical Notes: William Bishop and Anna (nee Fife) were married in September 1844 (see TL 3/1/1, 29 April 1981). They owned land in the Maitai Valley, but are not known to have built there. A family member (Clemency Bryant, visited 22/5/2000) suggests this scene may be in Nile Street, Nelson, where the couple had a home. However the hills behind do not fit with this suggestion.
