Genealogical Notes:-

(1). Maximilian GOLLOP was buried at St Peters Church Dorchester on 21st July 1719. He married three times having 4 children by his first wife. None seem to have survived him although I can only trace the burial of two of them. Jane GOLLOP mentioned above was the 2nd child by his 2nd wife also called Jane, but have not been able to locate their marriage. Their 1st child John GOLLOP died in infancy leaving Jane as his sole heir. Elizabeth GOLLOP (nee HAVILLAND) his Execurix was his thrid wife.
