(Info from Sharon Gallup)

This is a model of the "Mary & John" which is the ship that John Gallop sailed in when he arrived in Boston.  He set sail from London on March 20, 1630.  His wife and children came later.
The is a farm in Connecticut in the area where many of the Gallup families lived.
Stephen Laskey sent this water-color that his grandfather painted of the Gallup motto. 

Gallop's Island is located in the Boston Harbor.  Here are comments from Lynn Gallup...who took the picture. "You'll remember, the town of Hull is where Captain Chubb dropped off the "Mary and John" passengers (in violation of his contract) who then had to make it to Boston by some other means (I wonder how). Boston is the large city to the left in the photograph; by land it is a loooong ways away. I think Gallup's/Gallop's Island was used by John Gallup and his sons as a kind of a warehousing area for goods they shipped up and down the coast by their coastal shipping business.  It was a confusing island to identify so I had a park ranger climb the old fort tower with me to point it out.
