John Gallup was born in September 1646 in Boston, Suffolk, Ma. he died on 26 Dec. 1733 in Stonington, New London, Ct.

Extensive research by Winslow S. Gallup was not able to locate John Gallop's gravestone or any record of his place of burial in Stonington, Voluntown, or Plainfield, Ct. It is probable that he is buried in the Whitehall yard in a now unmarked grave. There is also some possibility that he is buried in the Oneco (Voluntown) Cemetery near Plainfield. Ct.

He settled in Stonington on lands granted by the General Court to his father for services in the Indian wars. He participated in King Philip's war and was with his father in the great Swamp fight at Narragansett. he was a renowned Indian interpreter. Represented Stonington in General court 1685,

Shortly before the turn of the eighteenth century, John and his six sons were granted land in the town of Plainfield CT. in the ensuing years, the area was claimed and battled over by many factions, resulting in numerous petitions to the General Corrt for settlement of the claims and counterclaims. The Gallup brothers stood firm and fought determinedly for their claims with resulting bitterness. "Your honored townsman, Judge Gallup reports that his ancestor one of the six brothers concerned in these squabbles was actually driven off into Voluntown as a specially obnoxious land grabber."

JOHN GALLUP settled in Stonington Connecticut on lands granted by the General Court to his father for services in the Indian Wars. He participated in the King Philip War and was with his father in the Great Swamp Fight at Narragansett, Rhode Island. He was a renowned Indian interpreter. He represented the town of Stonington, Connecticut in the General Court, 1685, 1696-1698. Shortly before the turn of the eighteenth century John Gallup and his six sons were granted land in the town of Plainfield, Connecticut. In the ensuing years, the area was claimed and battled over by many factions, resulting in numerous petitions to the General Court for settlement of the claims and counter claims. The Gallup brothers stood firm and fought determinedly for their claims, with resulting bitterness. “Your honored townsmen, Judge Gallup, reports that his ancestor, one of six brothers concerned in these squabbles, was actually driven off into Voluntown as a specially obnoxious ‘land grabber’.”

In 1706, upon petition, a commission finally compromised the difficulties and a formal allotment of lands was made. “We also pray that the Court would appoint a committee of indifference and uninterested persons to lay out allotments and to equalize such as have been in part laid out. For without any reflection on the part of the persons that have been already concerned, we humbly conceive that it cannot be reasonable to support that peaceful, honorable, speedy, righteous laying out of lots and divisions of land and meadows can be by six brothers, who also pretend to and would hold, near a sixth part of the plantation themselves; whereas it is well known that this place lyeth under many pretended claims besides our honorable Governor’s claim, and by their own surveying running near two miles for less than a hundred acres to lay out spots of meadow, such actions, so contrary to law, if not regulated, the place is spoiled and therefore we humbly pray the assembly to appoint Captain Wetherell, Mr. Pitkin, and My Ely to inquire into the legal proceedings, and inform the weak and feeble that they may have a more speedy and peaceable settlement, so that we may have the worship of God among us, the which above all is to be desired and sought for and have rights defended to ourselves and heirs.”

“There were probably forty-six men to sign the petition. The six Gallup brothers referred to in the petition were the Gallup brothers, sons of John Gallup. The Gallups, of course, would not sign the petition.” “John Gallup, Jr. was granted the lot he now lives on, John Gallup, Sr. the lot adjoining his son’s. William Gallup was allowed a lot, provided “He bring his family to it in some reasonable time and there settle with his family. John Gallup never removed there to live.
