    Notes 
    • Richard married Alice Clark on December 5, 1644 [possibly as his
      second wife]. She was the widow of George Clark, and tragically ended
      her life by murdering her own child, and was subsequently hung
      therefor, in 1648. There is a mournful account of the murder by Alice
      Bishop of her daughter, Martha Clarke, 4 years old, July 22, 1648
      (Savage, Vol. I, page 393). She also had another daughter, Abigail
      Clark. There is also reference to "Damaris, (wife of the first William
      Sutton), daughter of Alice and Richard Bishop". When William Sutton
      removed to New Jersey, Bishop sold his property at Duxbury, and went
      to live with him. Richard Bishop was called "of Piscattaway in
      Artercull or New Jersey," when he sold to Capt. Benjamin Church his
      property in the Colony (Winsor's Duxbury, page 228.).
