Bishop Family Tree

Bishop Name Meaning: English: from Middle English biscop, Old English bisc(e)op ‘bishop’, which comes via Latin from Greek episkopos ‘overseer’. The Greek word was adopted early in the Christian era as a title for an overseer of a local community of Christians, and has yielded cognates in every European language.The word came to be applied as a surname for a variety of reasons, among them service in the household of a bishop, supposed resemblance in bearing or appearance to a bishop, and selection as the ‘boy bishop’ on St. Nicholas’s Day.

It is very difficult if not impossible to place the children of Zebediah, Warnel, and Elisha. Joshua moved away so his family is easy to separate. We know Nancy Stickstill born 1787 who married Richard Hull said her parents were Elisha Stockstill and Rachel Gladman and that Jebediah Stockstilll who signed her marriage bond was her uncle. I placed Nancy and Abigail as children of Warnel and wife Nancy based on census records showing all 3 women living together. The 1800 census shows Zebediah, Warnel and Rachel living near each other. So this is who is number listed in 1800. Some of the older boys Zebidah listed in 1790 may have left home like Thomas? David could be a son of Zebedee that has moved away or a sone of Elisha and Rachel. Mary would be a daughter of Elisha and Rachel if Abigail and Nacy are daughter of Warnel. But what of Hannah and Elizabeth - if their birth dates are correct. Nancy who married Richard Hull 1as born 1787 and the other 2 born 1788. Yet only 1 shows up in the census. Of course census can have errors or if thir father was Elisha and he was dead they could have lived with others. There are other males born 1790-1800 who are unidentified.
