The Gallup Family in America

     Many compilations are found which provide an ancestry in England for John GALLUP of Boston, MA. However, such claims likely all have their roots in John D. Gallup's Genealogical History of the Gallup Family in the United States (1893), in which English pedigrees were quoted in support of the claim that John GALLUP of New England was son of John GALLUP and Mary CRABBE of Mosterne, Dorset, England.
     Charles Wilson Allen obtained a copy of the subject pedigree and found it had been mis-quoted, publishing his "Gallop Genealogy: Corrections" in Apr. 1963 [NEHGR 114:151-52] and concluding that the claimed Gallup ancestry in England "is not substantiated by this or any other document known to me."
     The Gallup ancestry search continues, with Gerald James Parsons' "John Gallop/Gollop of Bridport, Dorchestershire, England, and Boston, Massachusetts" [TAG 68:1 (Jan. 1993), pp. 11-13] detailing the available records, including the marriage of John GALLUP and Christabell BRUCHETT and the baptism of their seven children at St. Mary's Church, Bridport, Dorchestershire, England. Parsons also concluded that "no other records needed to determine John Gallop's parentage and/or his relationship to the other Gollops in Bridport were located."
     Available material concerning John GALLOP is reviewed in The Great Migration Begins, Volume II, by Robert Charles Anderson (1995), pp. 725-28, and the Bridport records are included in the article on John GALLOP. In commenting on another publication, the author states that "the section on English ancestry has been superseded and should be ignored." All that is known of the immigrant's birth is that he was born "By about 1593 based on date of marriage."


John and Christobel (Brushett) Gallup

John GALLUP - b. about 1593, England; d. Jan. 11, 1649/50, Boston, Suffolk Co., MA. John's parentage has not been determined. He was admitted to the Boston church on Jan. 5, 1633/4, and became freeman Apr. 1, 1634 as third in a group of six Dorchester men, but there is no evidence he lived there. His will, dated Dec. 20, 1649 and proved Feb. 9, 1649/50, and the inventory taken Feb. 26, 1649/50 includes properties indicating his occupation of fisherman and mariner. His real estate included "The Island, Called by ye name of Gallupe's Island, Containeinge about 16 acres." Capt. GALLOP piloted arriving ships into Boston Harbor, and in the coastal trade between CT and ME. Married Jan. 19, 1617/8, St. Mary's Church, Bridport, Dorset, England.

Christobel BRUSHETT - b. 1592, Dorset, England; d. Sep. 27, 1655; Boston, Suffolk Co., MA. She did not arrive in America with her husband, possibly deciding to delay the journey due to either the young age or soon arrival of her son John, the Younger. It may have taken the encouragement of Rev. John WHITE to have her make the crossing with her four surviving children. Gov. John WINTHROP had written to Rev. WHITE on Jul. 4, 1632: "I have much difficulty to keep John Galloppe here by reason his wife will not come. I marvel at the woman's weakness that she will live miserably with her children there, when she might live comfortably here with her husband. I pray persuade and further her coming by all means: if she will come let her have the remainder of his wages, if not, let it be bestowed to bring over his children, for so he desires: it would be above £40 loss to him to come for her." Christobel was admitted to the Boston Church Jun. 22, 1634. Her will, dated Jul. 24, 1655 and proved Oct. 31, 1655, names her three sons and daughter Joane Joy. The name of her father is uncertain, since it has been given as both Edmund and John.
