Age 5

With the Aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars the global market for trade was down. During this time, America had its first financial crisis and it lasted for only two years. 

Age 6

On January 28, 1820, the New Jersey Legislature incorporated the City of Jersey from parts of the Bergen Township. The city would be reincorporated two more times (January 23, 1829 and February 22, 1838) before receiving its official name. Jersey City became part of the new Hudson County in February of 1840.

Age 22

In April 1836, Samuel Colt formed a corporation of venture capitalists to bring his patented "revolving gun" to the market. The Patent Arms Manufacturing of Paterson, New Jersey had been chartered the month before (March 5) and promised Colt a commission for each sale in exchange for the patent rights. Due to the popularity of the patent, Colt had a monopoly on revolver manufacture until 1857.

Name Meaning

English: from Middle English biscop, Old English bisc(e)op ‘bishop’, which comes via Latin from Greek episkopos ‘overseer’. 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 cognates in every European language: French évêque, Italian vescovo, Spanish obispo, Russian yepiskop, German Bischof, etc. The English surname has probably absorbed at least some of these continental European cognates. The word came to be applied as a surname for a variety of reasons, among them service in the household of a bishop, supposed resemblance in bearing or appearance to a bishop, and selection as the ‘boy bishop’ on St. Nicholas's Day.
