Origins of surname
The original Bishop was not a church official but probably the head of a community, or overseer, from epi=over and skopein='look'. The name may also have been used for someone who worked in a Bishop's house.
The name has been present since 1654, when Jeanne, the daughter of English soldier Gilles and an unknown mother was baptised in St Ouen. He was the first of a substantial number of English soldier Bishops to marry in Jersey.
