About Christobel Gallop

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.
