FYI, for all of us researching Capt. John.
Just a note I thought was very interesting and to confirm what I had already suspected. In reading wills or any document from the 1600s the term or phrase "To my brother" does not always mean a literal brother, in Capt. Johns case meaning brother in-law. Several points have been made to me saying that Capt. John was listed in a will naming him a brother as evidence to his link to a specific family by marriage.-Michael Bishop K.T.
I have been reading a book called "The Origins of Freemasonry in Scotland 1590 to 1710" by David Stevenson. Professor of Scottish History, University of St. Andrews.
In Royal Towns (Edinburgh, Linlithgow etc...) " A man admitted to the privileged position of a merchant or burgess was made 'free' of the town, becoming a free man, being free to enjoy certain rights. The members of a craft guild were known as operative freemen, merchants and burgess were known as non-operative freemen. In 1625 they were all listed as just freemen of the guild. Members of the freemen guild addressed each other as brother. in public or in writs, wills and documents. This function let it be known they were exempt from certain charges and taxes." We know Capt. John was a merchant as well as a Burgess. The James Bishop I have been researching in Scotland (the tobacco merchant) is listed as a Guild Brother in writing from a document dated in 1624. I thought you might find this interesting as well. -Michael Bishop K.T.

Bishop (Bischop), William, in Currie. See Ramsay, Elizabeth.
I have been at this now for about 15 years. I had traced my lineage back to Capt. John but every thing seemed to be at a dead end from there back. There had been considerable research trying to trace Capt. John in England. There is a Lady in New Orleans who has spent to date close to $900.00 to a
Genealogist in London trying to make the connection, but as yet every thing has come up negative. The reason for so many people trying to find traces in England was based upon a paper written by Asa Bishop in the 1800s claiming he was told that the Bishop's had come from England. I then started to look
at the people who surrounded Capt. John, like his son in-law. Business dealing and so on. I had to start studying History, this is what I found:
1. His son in law, David Peebles was from Edinburgh, Scotland not County Fife as some have claimed.
2. Capt. John was a Tobacco plantation owner, this was a very restricted trade and all who exported it were give strict right by the Crown thru the Governor.
3. All the Tobacco trade was sent to the UK thru the port of Greenock, the port for Glasgow, Scotland. For two reasons; first it was closer via the Northern Trade Route than London or Blackpool in England. second King Charles was born in Scotland, his father King James was the King of Scotland and when
the Queen of England died without an heir the King of Scotland then became both the King of Scotland and England, thus forming the United Kingdom. The Trade Guilds and merchants in England demand a high levy for the use of their docks. Charles could how ever use the ports in Scotland and keep all the
levies for him self, thus keeping full control over the import and distribution of the Tobacco. The value of Tobacco was as good as Gold, from Scotland it was sold to the major ports in Europe. Giving Charles an even greater share of the profits.
3. The ship the Golden Lion was captured off the cost of Virginia by a fleet sent by Cromwell to subdue Virginia for it's support of King Charles during the English Civil War. The ship was bound for Greenock, Scotland.
4. James Bishop of Bishopton, Scotland had a major tobacco import business in Glasgow and was listed as the receiver of the tobacco shipped by John Bishop of Virginia.
From this point I contacted a Genealogist in Edinburgh, she said that the town of Bishopton was named after the Estate founded by James Bishop. Who made a fortune in Tobacco. She said he came from Linlithgow, and there was still decedents of that Line of Bishop's still Living there till this day.
So off to Scotland I went, and found William Bishop, who lives in Bo'Ness about 5 miles from Linlithgow. Since then we have become very good friends and I go back each year and stay with him at his home and he comes hear and stays with me. This is what I have found on my trips to Scotland.
1. James, John, William, Jr. are listed as being brothers and the son's of
William Bishop of Linlithgowshire.
2. Ochiltree Castle and Estate was run by Thomas Bishop of Linlithgowshire.
3. Linlithgow town was listed as a Royal Burgh (All trade that was conducted
their did not have to pay duties or tax and only grants given directly by the
King were given grants to hold land there.)
4. William Bishop was a Merchant who bought and sold Grain, his brother was
David Bishop the Burgess of Edinburgh.
5. I found a document stating that David Bishop was given the right of
custodianship of his nephews son John Bishop, Jr. for his education in Law in
England while his nephew was away. John, Jr. was to stay with his mothers
family in England during his education and was to receive an allowance of 20
merks per month while in school.
6. It has been proven that Capt. Johns wife Elizabeth was indeed English.
7. David Bishop granted David Pebbles his Merchant lincese in Edenburgh.

Relationship of the Bishop family to the King's/Queens of Scotland:
1. Thomas Bishop was hanged for his part, in trying to help Mary Queen of the
Scots (the Grand Mother of King Charles), escape from Queen Elizabeth of
England
2. Davis Bishop was given the title of Burgess of Edinburgh by King James of
Scotland (the father of King Charles).
3. Thomas Bishop married Nancy Stewart the 2nd cousin to Mary Queen of the
Scots.
This is just a quick run down of the past 5 years, I hope this gives you some insight.-Michael BishopK. T.
William Bishop the father of (Capt. John) was the brother of David Bishop the Burgess of Edinburgh. Thomas Bishop the Lord of Ochiltree was a 2nd brother to William Bishop. Linlithgowshire was the seat of the district of West Lothian.
Anyhow back to William Bishop father to Capt. John, I am very close to getting the line straight from William Bishop of 1293 up to William Bishop of 1623 (Capt. John's Father). I am so close I can taste it, but cannot make a speculation of proof as of yet. I will need to travel back to Scotland one or two more times.-Michael Bishop K. T.

Michael Bishop , 6 May 2001: Notes for you on Capt. John of Virginia:
John Bishop (Capt.) was born in 1590 in Linlithgowshire, Scotland. Was the son of William Bishop. His Uncle David Bishop was the Burgess of Edinburgh, Scotland appointed by King James the VI (thence known as King James I) after the death of Queen Elizabeth. James became king of both Scotland and England hence the formation of the United Kingdom.

Ref. Facts.
Privy council records of King James
Privy council record of King Charles
Merchant shipping of the 17th century (shipping records for the Golden Lion) (port of Greenock, Scotland, tobacco from (Virginia to, by King Charles)
David Pebbles (Merchant in Edinburg, Scotland) sent to Virginia on charges by Cromwell, Council.
The English Civil War archives
The History and Archives of West, Lothioan District, Scotland
The History of Cultree Estate, Linlithgowshire, Scotland (Thomas Bishop)
The History of the Port of Grennock, Scotland and the tobacco trade in Virginia.
The History of James Bishop (Merchant) and the formation of Bishopton, Scotland.

In his great-grandson's will (Asa, b. 1753), Capt. John Bishop is said to have been one of the earliest settlers in Virginia, settling on the south side of the James River, above old Jamestown, and was of old English stock.

Some say that Capt. John came to the US on the ship "Paule", which left the Port of London 6 July 1635. I think it is more likely that the John Bishop who came over on The Paule is the one described in THE BISHOP FAMILY by Bobby G. Adams. Some think Capt. John's wife Elizabeth may have been the sister of George Menefee/ Menifee, but I think that it is more likely that she is the sister of his first wife. See notes below.

There is a great deal of confusion of the John Bishop line shown by Bobby Gerald Adams in THE BISHOP FAMILY, 1982, and the Capt. John Bishop line. Bobby Gerald's book is available from him at P.O. Box 2371; Florence, AL 35630. DNB

More About John Bishop, Captain:
Fact 1: I had born c. 1612, England, but changed to that shown from info from Michael Bishop (q.v.)
Fact 2: Settled on the south. side of the James River
Fact 3: Burgess 1644, 1652, & 1653
Fact 4: His estate settled 4/1656
Fact 5: He may have had a son James born after coming to America

Notes for Elizabeth Booker:
Elizabeth is not proved to be Elizabeth Booker, but Mary Elizabeth Sanders; 2332 Wisteria Street; Baton Rouge, LA 70806 offered a strong argument, based on much research, that she was Elizabeth Booker, sister of Roger Booker and sister of George Menefie's first wife. The Menefie-Booker-etc. connections shown are based on her conclusions, in a letter of 7/25/1997 to Mailande Schrum, who sent me a copy.

I am back from Scotland and have some new info on the Bishops i.e.; Capt. Johns Family. For the ones who have the info on Thomas Bishop and Ochiltree Castle. It is currently owned by Lord Hopetoun, I and William went up to the castle grounds and I could not find any one to ask permission to take pictures. We
went to the main gate anyway and I got pictures of the Grand intrey way to the Castle and took pictures of the Bishop Crest. This Castle is 2 miles from Linlithgow, what was the most interesting is no could tell me anything about it. I finally tracked a history Dr. at the Library and the History is blank between 1610 and 1640. The time when Thomas Bishop was married to Janet Stuart. In this time frame the history has been wiped clean. Also John and his brother James seem to have gotten into some trouble with Lord Hopetoun in 1635 in Linlithgow, might be a reason for the current mystery. I have lots more also.-Michael Bishop K.T.
For the Members of the House of Bishop: I have made copies of the documents for you and will get our new Tartan fabric samples sent as well. I had spoken to William T. Bishop in Arizona, about a one Thomas Grey and the Bisset family and the trouble I had with the Grey family Tartan. I won the right for the basic pattern of a deep red/maroon going through a navy blue back ground. forming a cross (this signifies the
Knights Templars in the family) The way things worked out the Bishop family Crest and Shield. We had to end up remrutriculating Capt. Johns father, William Bishops shield/crest. Capt. John was not the eldest child and did not die in Scotland. So we got Amoral Bearings (turned in waiting for the Lord Lyon) and colors now and are a registered family as the House of Bishop. While in Scotland William and I found a weaver who will weave the fabric for any one wanting fabric to make skirts, pillows, slip covers ect.. and a kilt maker for anyone who wants a kilts from scotland. Well I have jet lag and need some rest if anyone has questions please e-mail.- Michael Bishop K. T.

Calderwood (v252) Register of James VI, Moonday, 10th June
Thomas Henderson, burgess of Edinburgh, an adulter, deemed a rabell with Bothwell by the King.
On breaking in of that of Houltoun House by Henderson and repulsed by Bishop and the Laird: At unlawful hour of 10:00 thus night
The Laird of Houltoun withstood that any man should not have him; yea they shot at him.Whereupon Bishop was slain, the Laird was hurtin the head.
June 12th, Mr. Henderson was delivered to the toolbooth, by the Provost's, to awaite his hanging
William
On reading the paper you sent comes some surprising new connections.
King James, VI, becomes king in 1567, in favor of his mother Mary Queen of Scots.
1567, Lord Darnley the Queens husband is murdered by Bothwell. Mary unlawfully married Bothwell. Then flee's Scotland and is imprisoned in England in 1568.Bothwell had ploted to overtake the Scotish Crown, declared an out law.Did the King know he was fleeing to Denmark, or in June did he think he fleed to England, to plot with Mary and Elizabeth?
Lord Darlney is the son of the Earl of Lennox (Sir Matthew Stewart)
Thomas Bishop gave a written memorial for the Earl when he died and was
described as a comrade in arms of the Earl. So Thomas Bishop well knew Henry
Stewart
(lord Darnley).
Thomas Henderson was listed as one of the plotters with Bothwell.
Why did Henderson break into Sir William Lauder (Lord Houlton) house?
Why was James Bishop there at such a late hour?
Why did Henderson kill James Bishop and try to kill Lord Houlton?
There is a proven connection to Bothwell thru Thomas Bishop thru Lord Darnley.
There is a proven connection to Bothwell thru James Bishop thru Henderson.
There is a proven connection between Thomas Bishop to Matthew Stewart, Henry
Stewart and Janet Stewart all cousins to Queen Mary and King James.
There is something here, what it is I do not know.-Michael Dean Bishop K.T.

Bishop (Bischop), William, in Currie. See Ramsay, Elizabeth.
I have been at this now for about 15 years. I had traced my lineage back to Capt. John but every thing seemed to be at a dead end from there back. There had been considerable research trying to trace Capt. John in England. There is a Lady in New Orleans who has spent to date close to $900.00 to a
Genealogist in London trying to make the connection, but as yet every thing has come up negative. The reason for so many people trying to find traces in England was based upon a paper written by Asa Bishop in the 1800s claiming he was told that the Bishop's had come from England. I then started to look
at the people who surrounded Capt. John, like his son in-law. Business dealing and so on. I had to start studying History, this is what I found:
1. His son in law, David Peebles was from Edinburgh, Scotland not County Fife as some have claimed.
2. Capt. John was a Tobacco plantation owner, this was a very restricted trade and all who exported it were give strict right by the Crown thru the Governor.
3. All the Tobacco trade was sent to the UK thru the port of Greenock, the port for Glasgow, Scotland. For two reasons; first it was closer via the Northern Trade Route than London or Blackpool in England. second King Charles was born in Scotland, his father King James was the King of Scotland and when
the Queen of England died without an heir the King of Scotland then became both the King of Scotland and England, thus forming the United Kingdom. The Trade Guilds and merchants in England demand a high levy for the use of their docks. Charles could how ever use the ports in Scotland and keep all the
levies for him self, thus keeping full control over the import and distribution of the Tobacco. The value of Tobacco was as good as Gold, from Scotland it was sold to the major ports in Europe. Giving Charles an even greater share of the profits.
3. The ship the Golden Lion was captured off the cost of Virginia by a fleet sent by Cromwell to subdue Virginia for it's support of King Charles during the English Civil War. The ship was bound for Greenock, Scotland.
4. James Bishop of Bishopton, Scotland had a major tobacco import business in Glasgow and was listed as the receiver of the tobacco shipped by John Bishop of Virginia.
From this point I contacted a Genealogist in Edinburgh, she said that the town of Bishopton was named after the Estate founded by James Bishop. Who made a fortune in Tobacco. She said he came from Linlithgow, and there was still decedents of that Line of Bishop's still Living there till this day.
So off to Scotland I went, and found William Bishop, who lives in Bo'Ness about 5 miles from Linlithgow. Since then we have become very good friends and I go back each year and stay with him at his home and he comes hear and stays with me. This is what I have found on my trips to Scotland.
1. James, John, William, Jr. are listed as being brothers and the son's of
William Bishop of Linlithgowshire.
2. Ochiltree Castle and Estate was run by Thomas Bishop of Linlithgowshire.
3. Linlithgow town was listed as a Royal Burgh (All trade that was conducted
their did not have to pay duties or tax and only grants given directly by the
King were given grants to hold land there.)
4. William Bishop was a Merchant who bought and sold Grain, his brother was
David Bishop the Burgess of Edinburgh.
5. I found a document stating that David Bishop was given the right of
custodianship of his nephews son John Bishop, Jr. for his education in Law in
England while his nephew was away. John, Jr. was to stay with his mothers
family in England during his education and was to receive an allowance of 20
merks per month while in school.
6. It has been proven that Capt. Johns wife Elizabeth was indeed English.
7. David Bishop granted David Pebbles his Merchant lincese in Edenburgh.

Relationship of the Bishop family to the King's/Queens of Scotland:
1. Thomas Bishop was hanged for his part, in trying to help Mary Queen of the
Scots (the Grand Mother of King Charles), escape from Queen Elizabeth of
England
2. Davis Bishop was given the title of Burgess of Edinburgh by King James of
Scotland (the father of King Charles).
3. Thomas Bishop married Nancy Stewart the 2nd cousin to Mary Queen of the
Scots.
This is just a quick run down of the past 5 years, I hope this gives you some insight.-Michael BishopK. T.
William Bishop the father of (Capt. John) was the brother of David Bishop the Burgess of Edinburgh. Thomas Bishop the Lord of Ochiltree was a 2nd brother to William Bishop. Linlithgowshire was the seat of the district of West Lothian.
Anyhow back to William Bishop father to Capt. John, I am very close to getting the line straight from William Bishop of 1293 up to William Bishop of 1623 (Capt. John's Father). I am so close I can taste it, but cannot make a speculation of proof as of yet. I will need to travel back to Scotland one or two more times.-Michael Bishop K. T.

Michael Bishop , 6 May 2001: Notes for you on Capt. John of Virginia:
John Bishop (Capt.) was born in 1590 in Linlithgowshire, Scotland. Was the son of William Bishop. His Uncle David Bishop was the Burgess of Edinburgh, Scotland appointed by King James the VI (thence known as King James I) after the death of Queen Elizabeth. James became king of both Scotland and England hence the formation of the United Kingdom.

Ref. Facts.
Privy council records of King James
Privy council record of King Charles
Merchant shipping of the 17th century (shipping records for the Golden Lion) (port of Greenock, Scotland, tobacco from (Virginia to, by King Charles)
David Pebbles (Merchant in Edinburg, Scotland) sent to Virginia on charges by Cromwell, Council.
The English Civil War archives
The History and Archives of West, Lothioan District, Scotland
The History of Cultree Estate, Linlithgowshire, Scotland (Thomas Bishop)
The History of the Port of Grennock, Scotland and the tobacco trade in Virginia.
The History of James Bishop (Merchant) and the formation of Bishopton, Scotland.

In his great-grandson's will (Asa, b. 1753), Capt. John Bishop is said to have been one of the earliest settlers in Virginia, settling on the south side of the James River, above old Jamestown, and was of old English stock.

Some say that Capt. John came to the US on the ship "Paule", which left the Port of London 6 July 1635. I think it is more likely that the John Bishop who came over on The Paule is the one described in THE BISHOP FAMILY by Bobby G. Adams. Some think Capt. John's wife Elizabeth may have been the sister of George Menefee/ Menifee, but I think that it is more likely that she is the sister of his first wife. See notes below.

There is a great deal of confusion of the John Bishop line shown by Bobby Gerald Adams in THE BISHOP FAMILY, 1982, and the Capt. John Bishop line. Bobby Gerald's book is available from him at P.O. Box 2371; Florence, AL 35630. DNB

More About John Bishop, Captain:
Fact 1: I had born c. 1612, England, but changed to that shown from info from Michael Bishop (q.v.)
Fact 2: Settled on the south. side of the James River
Fact 3: Burgess 1644, 1652, & 1653
Fact 4: His estate settled 4/1656
Fact 5: He may have had a son James born after coming to America

Notes for Elizabeth Booker:
Elizabeth is not proved to be Elizabeth Booker, but Mary Elizabeth Sanders; 2332 Wisteria Street; Baton Rouge, LA 70806 offered a strong argument, based on much research, that she was Elizabeth Booker, sister of Roger Booker and sister of George Menefie's first wife. The Menefie-Booker-etc. connections shown are based on her conclusions, in a letter of 7/25/1997 to Mailande Schrum, who sent me a copy.
