Antica e nobile famiglia originaria del Trentino e dottore all’Università di Bologna nel 1672. Chiamati anticamente de Episcopo e de Eptiscopis i Vescovi assunsero, forse, questo cognome, da qualche parente vescovo. I Vescovi di Chioggia, erano dopo il mille, salineri e nagivatori, come lo dimostravano vari documenti citati dal conte Bullo, diedero nel 1600, il loro nome alla contrada De Vescovi e Cester a Chioggia. Questa stirpe era nel Consiglio di Chioggia nel secolo XV; e poi, una figliazione di essa si trasportò a Venezia, dove ancora esistono persone di questo cognome. Anche a Trieste troviamo la famiglia Vescovi fra le più distinte, e così pure nell’Istria, come rammenta lo Stancovich, e in altri luoghi. L’abate Antonio regalò alcuni libri alla Marciana, conforme lo ricorda un decreto della Repubblica in data 21 luglio 1657. E che i Vescovi abitassero in Venezia lo dimostra una iscrizione che esisteva nella chiesa della madonna dell’Orto, ed il Ridolfi, il quale dice che il pittore Tintoretto fu accompagnato alla sepoltura di marco degli Episcopi suocero suo.. Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. Over the centuries the name Dei Vescovi may have had many changes and the present form, according to our studies, appears to be different from the original. It is important to realize that the name may have gone through dialect variations, contractions, shortened forms of the original one, lenitions, errors due to incorrect transcriptions and voluntary changes. Therefore, we believe that the surname Dei Vescovi came originally from Vescovi, on which we are able to provide the following historical and heraldic information taken from bibliographic sources of Araldicus: This Last Name which comes via the Latin EPISKOPOS meant an overseer from EPI (on, over) and SKOPEIN (to look). 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 variant spellings in every European language. The name came to be applied as a Last Name for a variety of reasons, among them service in the household of a bishop, supposed resemblance in bearing or appearance to a bishop, and as ‘boy bishop’ on St. Nicholas day. The origins of Italian last names are not clear, and much work remains to be done on medieval Italian records. It seems that stable bynames, in some cases hereditary, were in use in the Venetian Republic by the end of the 10th century. The typical Italian Last Name endings are ‘i’ and ‘o’, the former being characteristic of northern Italy. The singular form ‘o’ is more typical of southern Italy. The earliest French hereditary last names are found in the 12th century, at more or less the same time as they arose in England, but they are by no means common before the 13th century, and it was not until the 15th century that they stabilized to any great extent; before then a Last Name might be handed down for two or three generations, but then abandoned in favour of another. In the south, many French last names have come in from Italy over the centuries, and in Northern France, Germanic influence can frequently be detected. During the Middle Ages, when people were unable to read or write, signs were needed for all visual identification. For several centuries city streets were filled with signs of all kinds, public houses, tradesmen and even private householders found them necessary. This was an age when there were no numbered houses, and an address was a descriptive phrase that made use of a convenient landmark. At this time, coats of arms came into being, for the practical reason that men went into battle heavily armed and were difficult to recognise. It became the custom for them to adorn their helmets with distinctive crests, and to paint their shields with animals and the like. Coats of arms accompanied the development of last names, becoming hereditary in the same way….
