Selina Bishop, the daughter of Henry Bishop and Sarah Keech married John Tompkins in 1848. He was the son of James Tompkins and Mary Cheney. Before the discovery of this inscription all we knew is that the family were at Godmanstone, Dorset in 1871 and that by 1881 Selina was a widow visiting her son James at Milford, Salisbury, Wiltshire.
The presence of a grandaughter on the same monument also lead to the discovery of the marriage of daughter Sarah Selina Tompkins to Edward Conway.
