This project has been moribund for a while and needs to be refreshed. First, it would be good to add all the profiles of the Gallup descendants to the project. There are a lot of descendants! Second, it would be great if we highlighted the notable Gallup descendants, with a short statement about their accomplishment(s), starting with the Gallup line itself. Third, we can have a section that links to famous descendants, such as U.S. presidents, actors, politicians, etc. Any other ideas?

  • I started this project because the Gallup family tree needs to be cleaned up. I am a direct descendant of John Gallop (Gallup). The patriarch of the Gallup family is John Gallop. John Gallop was documented to have arrived in this country on the “Mary & John”. He left England on March 20, 1630, and arrived in Boston where he settled and became one of the first grantees of land in the northern part of town. John Gallop had a wharf and house, and the area was known as Gallop’s Point. Gallop was very important to the development of trade between the Massachusetts Colony and Connecticut and Rhode Island. Source: []
  • John Gallop’s wife, Christobel Bruschett did not travel with her husband to Boston. She stayed behind with their four children: John b. abt 1615, Joan b. abt 1618, William b. abt 1622, Nathaniel & Samuel b. abt 16 Aug 1629 (this is a baptism date). They had one other daughter, Frances, who died at a young age. Christobel was the daughter of Edmund Bruschett and Emma Nichols and was probably born in the 1590’s in Dorset, England. Christobel did not want to travel to the Boston... and her husband was ready to return to England. John Gallop had become an important member of the colony and Gov. Winthrop was eager to keep him in America. Gov. Winthrop wrote Rev. John White in Dorchester, England:

I have much difficultye to keep John Gallop here by reason of his wife will not come. I marvayle at the woman’s weaknesse. I pray pursuade her 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 childre, if so he desires. It would be about 40 pounds losse to him to come for her.

Your assured in the Lord’s worke, Massachusetts, July 4, 1632 J. Winthrop
