I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That is something that you can find on wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_command_shells

Not sure what kind of differences you need to know about beyond that?

Bourne, KSH & bash are more or less from the same family.
They started from the Bourne shell (sh),  KSH the Korn Shell (ksh)  and Bourne Again Shell (bash).
Both expanded the original bourne shell (The UNIX V7 standard Shell, created by Stephen Bourne,   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bourne_shell)
The Korn Shell borrowed the jobcontrol features from the C-Shell. And was selected for POSIX compliant systems. OpenBSD used it as default.

Bash was a clean room rebuild for GPL inspired by the Bourne Shell. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bash_(Unix_shell)


The Cshell (csh) was an attempt to create a shell that more resembled the C language, it had extended feature beyond the Bourne Shell as more interactive friendly it was the Standard Shell for BSD's.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_shell
