Joanna Boyse Bishop
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1616
Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale
West Yorkshire, England
Death: Nov. 8, 1681
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

Joanna Boyse, was the daughter of Rev John & Joanna (Stowe) Boyse. On July 2, 1637. She married, as his second wife, the Rev. Peter Prudden of Milford, while he was visiting Massachusetts. She married (2) Thomas Willett in Milford, 19 September 1671. (Savage says her gravestone of 1699 calls her his only wife and finds the error peculiar, but Burgess reads the stone to say 1669 and attributes it more correctly to the first wife.) There were no children of her marriage to Willett.

Find A Grave contributor Brooke Harlowe adds:
Joanna had a third husband, the Rev. John Bishop of Stamford, CT. She was his second wife. (See D.L. Jacobus, Families of Old Fairfield, vol. 1: 77)
Bishop is buried in St Johns and St. Andrews Episcopal Cemetery in Stamford. His memorial is 50504127.
In his will, Rev. Bishop asks to be buried between his two wives. I presume that Joanna (and Rebecca Goodyear Bishop) are in the same cemetery but no headstone remains for them.
