Gillespie Genealogy & History

Gillespie is an Irish and Scottish last name, coming from the Gaelic Mac giolla Easpuig, which means "son of the bishop's servant"; oddly, easpuig comes from the Latin episcopus, meaning bishop, making it unique among Gaelic names. Gillespie family history enters the books with Teag Mac Giolla Epscoip, chief of Aeilabhra, in County Down, noted in the Medieval Irish Records in 1175. Gillespie genealogy has a few notable individuals in its ranks, namely physical chemist Daniel Gillespie, inventor of the Gillespie algorithm; Republican strategist and lobbyist Ed Gillespie; and ophthalmologist Fredrick Gillespie, for whom Gillespie syndrome is named.
