Bishop was baptized in a Methodist church while living with his grandfather.

As was common for many boys in the adolescent period, the bishop spent his early years of education at a village school and finished formal schooling in 8th grade. Bishop was hired as a clerk and immediately began working for Nelson J. Warren, the head of the country's largest mercantile firm.

William Little Lee (1821-1857) from nearby Hudson Falls, was then named Sandy Hill. Linus Bishop, Charles' paternal uncle, married Lee's sister Eliza. Lee persuaded Bishop Lee to move with him to Oregon Territory for new opportunities after attending Harvard Law School.
