1500s

The name of the parish, "Biscopsberie", in Domesday, means "land of the Bishop", presumably referring to a Saxon Bishop, although we do not know his name.

In 1550 the population of the parish was probably no more than two or three hundred people living in scattered small communities, linked by tracks across open country and between small cultivated areas.
