Biography

Joseph ALSOP was born 18 Jan 1621 in Derby, Derbyshire, England. He died 8 Nov 1698 in New Haven, Connecticut. Joseph married Elizabeth PRESTON.

Temperance Glibert and John Alsop did NOT have a son named Joseph. [1] No evidence has been found to link Joseph Alsop to John Alsop and his wife Temperance (see bold type in quote from Savage, below).
According to R.C. Anderson in Great Migration, Joseph was 14 years old when took ship to New England, with his brother Thomas. They sailed from London, parents and origins unknown. Joseph settled ultimately New Haven, Connecticut. [2]
"JOSEPH, New Haven, had come, at the age of 14, to Boston in the Elizabeth and Ann, 1635, from London, went to New Haven early, took oath of fidelity in 1644, bef. 1647 m. Elizabeth the eldest d. of William Prestol, had Joseph; Elizabeth b. 22 June 1650; Sarah, 8 Sept. 1652, but by ch. rec. worthy of very little reward, 15 Sept. 1651; Mary, 3 Oct. 1654; Abigail, 4 Sept. not as ch. rec. says 4 Nov. 1656; all bapt. 26 Apr. 1657; Hannah, b. 2 Dec. 1659; John, 3 Jan. 1662; Lydia, 26 July 1665; Daniel, 13 Aug. 1667; and Jemima, 10 Feb. 1670. He d. 8 Nov. 1698; and of the ch. this report is giv. Sarah, d. prob. unm. 24 Jun. 1699; Mary m. 2 Nov. 1680, as his sec. w. John Miles; Abigail m. 14 July 1680, John Rowe; Lydia m. 8 Nov. 1688, James Trowbridge; Elizabeth m. Thomas Talmadge; and Jemina m. 24 Mar. 1692 John Paine. Hannah was a busy money making maiden, she was Adm'x of estate of her brother Daniel, and yrs. after bot. up the shares of her sister in the estate of her father, manag. by her with much discretion. Haz. II. 247. She d. unm." [3]
THOMAS, Stratford, who came in the Elizabeth and Ann from London, 1635, aged 20, I think must have been brother of Joseph of New Haven, as they came together, and the younger, in 1651, informed the Court, that his brother without naming him, had died at Stratford [England] leaving some property and no more is kin.

According to Savage (see quote on this profile), Joseph and his brother Thomas came from Stratford, (aka Stratford on Avon), Warwickshire.

Their purported parents originated in Derbyshire, England, showing another reason they have not been connected by genealogists researching the family.

This plus the best sources showing parents of Joseph and Thomas are Unknown, I think create enough reasons to disconnect John Alsop and Temperance Gilbert as their parents.

Does anyone think there needs to be a G2G discussion on this?

Gilbertt-3 and Alsop-29 appear to represent the same person because: This looks like the same person as Joseph Alsop-29. His last name is definitely not Gilbertt, and the persons connected as his parents are not his parents: sources show they had no son named Joseph. Thank you for helping to improve WikiTree.

John Alsop and Temperance (Gilbert) Hopkins DID NOT have a son named Joseph. see Magna Carta Ancestry, vol I, page 8-9 by Douglas Richardson.

This profile should be merged into Alsop-29, and both profiles need to be detached from John and Temperance as their parents.

Parents of Joseph Alsop and his brother Thomas, who sailed from London aboard the ship Elizabeth & Ann in 1635, are Unknown. See:

Elizabeth and Joseph Alsop had 10 known children. Not here are 1) Elizabeth born 22 June 1650 who married Thomas Talmadge.

2) Mary b. 3 Oct 1654 & married John Miles. There is an Elizabeth who is mixed up with Joseph Alsop, Jr.'s siblings; however she doesn't belong there. I also don't believe these are his parents of siblings. He did have 1 known sibling, older brother Thomas Alsop (1615-1651) who sailed with Joseph on the "Elizabeth & Ann" from London, England in 1635. Thomas was 20 & Joseph was 14.

This profile appears to have no sources, and the persons listed as his parents did not have a son named Joseph.

There is a Joseph Alsop, of about this era, whose father is related to the husband of Temperance Gilbert. After looking at the data available at NEHGS, I think the best option for this profile is to remove (detach) it from John and Temperance. Then find the correct parents.

I would like to explain that Douglas Richardson states the children of the people he documents. If there are children other than those he lists, he says 'and probably other children'. If he does not say that, his list is complete. In the case of John Alsop and Temperance Gilbert, his list is complete. So we need to detach Joseph as their son, regardless of what else is done with Joseph's profile.

Thank you and please respond.
