Samuel Gallop was christened 16 August 1629 at St Marys Church, Bridport, Dorset, England. He was a son of John Gallop and Christobel (Brushett) Gallop. His father emigrated to New England in 1630 and the rest of the family followed some time after July 1632, when John Winthrop wrote that he was having "much difficulty in to keep John Galloppe 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 her comfortably with her husband."[1]

Samuel married Mary Phillips in Boston, Massachusetts, on 20 January 1650/51.[2]

Their son Samuel was born in Boston 14 February 1656.[3][4]

Gallup-322 and Gallop-19 appear to represent the same person because: Clearly the same person. Most substantial difference is in spelling of the LNAB. I choose Gallop as the better spelling because that is the spelling used in his father's profile in The Great Migration Begins.

Samuel is 14 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 23 degrees from Bob Dylan, 16 degrees from AJ Jacobs, 18 degrees from Michael Phelps and 16 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II of the Commonwealth Realms on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
