About John Gallop, I

According to Gallup Genealogy, Vol I, 2009, p. xiv: "John Gallop, the earliest known ancestor of John Gallop, the immigrant to America, was John Gallop, who came 'out of the North' during the fifth year of the reign of Edward IV (1465). This ancestral John married Alice Temple at Temple Court in Broadwindson, Dorsetshire, who was the daughter and heir of William Temple of Temple Court who was born ca. 1443 also in Dorsetshire. Through his marriage to Alice he acquired that estate with the lands of North Bowood."

"Their son John Gallop, gentlemen of North Bowood and Temple, Dorsetshire, died during the twenty-fifth year of the reign of Henry VIII (1534). He married Joan Collins of Snailscroft, Dorsetshire."

came "out of the north" in 1465, presumably an adult.

out of the north might mean from somewhere like Blagdon (Somerset) which is in the north from here, alternatively (or even both options) it may refer to Yorkshire or somewhere else in the north country.

family stories tell that he (or his father) was a knight, and the family came over iin former times from Denmark.

the surname is originally Gottloeb, which is german.
