"Bishop's Lodge Muriel Linton" named for the Lintons’ youngest daughter, born in Hay in 1886.
Personal communication, February 3, 2001 from Brenda Weir (dec'd): We also gather and have budded roses from old homes and homesteads in the area. From Oxley Station we collected "Oxley Robert Percival" which has proved to be identical to "Bishop's Lodge Muriel Linton". David Ruston suggested this might be 'Hadley' but I think he might have confused it with Oxley Oenone", another red and more HT in type.]
