The Bishopp Family at Parham
The Bishopp family bought Parham from the Palmers in 1601 and stayed there until the last of the line died in 1828. The Parham estate then passed to his daughter Harriett, Lady Zouche, and her husband Robert Curzon. The first Bishopp, Thomas, was knighted in 1603 and made a baronet in 1620. This section gives biographical details about members of the family to the time of the 7th baronet, who died in 1779.
