    Ephraim and Charles Chatterley of Shelton Hall

  • Notes 
    • 1849 William Bishop died whilst still living at the Hall.

      August1842 he married Eliza Agnes Watson at St. Pancras church, London, the being conducted by his brother, the Revd. William Chatterley Bishop, of There were at least eight children by the marriage. about 1855 to the family lived at the Mot, Penkhull. Two of Frederick Bishop's children who died in infancy buried in Penkhull churchyard.

      In 1856 Fredrick Bishop purchased the Mount Estate for housing development. In 1859 he began to prepare the rest of the estate for development by building a road from Penkhull to Hartshill which in the 1870s was named Princes Road.My 3x grt-grandfather, William Bishop, had a daughter, Louisa Beata, by his second wife, Emma. Louisa Beata was born 1829 at Shelton Hall in Shelton. Could this be the same person?

      The house variously known as Shelton Hall and Chatterley Hall was built on the south bank of the Caldon Canal west of the road between Stoke and Hanley by Charles and Ephraim Chatterley in 1782. (fn. 287) Ephraim was evidently living there c. 1790, (fn. 288) and after his death in 1811 (fn. 289) the house remained the home of his widow Mary (d. 1832). (fn. 290) William Bishop, who married Charles Chatterley's daughter Mary Ann, died there in 1840, (fn. 291) and a William Bishop was living there in 1850. (fn. 292) Hanley cemetery was laid out over the southern part of the grounds in 1860, (fn. 293) but the hall itself remained standing between Cemetery Road and Caledonian Road until 1959 when it was in a ruinous state and was demolished. (fn. 294) It appears to have been a square three-storied building with a lower wing on its north side. (fn. 295)
