Descendants of the BICKLES of Tavistock, Devon
The hypothesis is that the direct line to Fred Shade is
(1) George Bickle & Mary Cholwill
(2) George Bickle & Mary Skelly
(3) George Bickle & Mary or Margery Ham
(4) David Bickle & Jane Clatworthy
(5) David Bickle & Elizabeth Veale
(6) John Bickle & Sarah Pengelly
(7) Elizabeth Ann Bickle & James Bysouth (goes to BYSOUTH tree)
(8) Sarah Ann Bysouth & Alfred Thomas Johnson (goes to JOHNSON tree)
(9) Ada Eveline Johnson and Albert Shade (goes to SHADE tree)
(10) Albert Ernest Shade & Mary Beatrice Chapple
As described in the following pages, this line rests on several assumptions, and is open to discussion.
It would not have been possible to make this tree without the assistance of Linda Nelson, OPC for Tavistock, Devon,
who provided many baptism, marriage and burial records for Tavistock and surrounds;
and Eric Marshman, who identified the earlier Bickle history as documented by Alan J.C.Taylor.
One version of the derivation of the name is as follows.
Recorded as Bickle, Bickell, Bickel and probably others, this is an English surname. It is chiefly to be found in the county of Devon,
and is a variant of Bickley. This is a locational name from places called Bickley in the county of Cheshire, recorded as "Bicheleia"
in the Domesday Book of 1086; in Worcestershire, appearing as "Bykeleg" in Worcestershire records; in Kent,
recorded as "Byckeleye" in the Feet of Fines in 1279; or Bickleigh in Devonshire, recorded as "Bichelia" in the Domesday Book.
These all share the same meaning and derivation, and translate as "Bicca's clearing". Early examples of the surname include
the marriage of Rychord Bickell in 1580 at Spreyton in Devonshire; the christening of Ede, daughter of William Bickle in April 1586,
at Hathesleigh, Devonshire; the marriage of Thomas Bickle and Jane Preste at Boyton, Cornwall, on November 27th 1598.
Thomas Bickel was granted a ticket to travel to the "Bermudes", aboard the sloop May Flower on April 7th 1679.
