    ‘S. W. Bisson, MA, B Litt, about 50, St John’s Church area (N W St John). Official in local Civil Service’. A reference found in a list of informants for ‘A Glossary of Jersey-French’, by N C W Spence, 1960, Blackwell, Oxford, which is referred to in La Section de la Langue Jerriaise.

    ‘I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge working on French Renaissance literature and history. I am particularly interested in the life and work of Claude Fauchet, a humanist and historian. In the course of my research I came across references to an unpublished thesis written at Oxford in around 1929/1930 by one S. W. Bisson entitled “Claude Fauchet’s Knowledge of Old French Literature”. Unfortunately, Oxford doesn’t appear to hold a copy, and as it was never published it is not available online…’
