(#5 John Gallop)
John Gallup set sail for Boston on Mar 20, 1630 on the "Mary and John", captained by Thomas Chubb. Seventy one days later, on May 30 , 1630, Capt. Chubb and passengers arrived in America. John Gallup moved to Boston, MA and was well known. His wife and children had not accompanied him on his trip. Apparently Christobel hesitated to undertake a long and uncertain sea voyage to an undisclosed country, in spite of urgent encouragement by her husband. John Gallup was so concerned that he contemplated returning to England. he had become an important man in the colony and this disturbed Governor Winthrop who wrote to the great Puritan leader, the Rev. John White in Dorchester:
"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 children if so he desires. It would be about L40 losse to him to come for her."
Your assured in the Lord's worke,
Massachusetts, July 4, 1632
She was pursuaded, and she and the children arrived on Sep 4, 1633 on the "Griffin," after eight weeks crossing. John Gallup achieved great distinction by piloting in the ship "Griffin," a ship of 300 tons, through a new found channel. On board were Rev. John Cotton, Rev. Thos. Hooker, Rev. Mr. Stone, and other fathers of New England. Also on board was his wife and children. Also on board was none nearer than a friend John Mason, with him in the military school in Holland, companion through the voyage on the "Mary and John", and ever after these two were as close friends as peculiar associations and strong natures could make them.
John Gallop owned Gallop's Island, where he had a snug farm with a meadow on Long Island, a sheep pasture on Nix Mate, and a house in Boston. He was made a freeman in April 1634. He was admitted to First Church, Boston on Jan 6, 1634, his wife on Jun 22 1634.
John was a skillful mariner, well acquainted with the harbor around Boston, and in the habit of making frequent trading expeditions along the coast in his own vessels. One of these expeditions was made forever memorable by the encounter of the murderers of his friend, John Oldham....."In the cabin they found John Oldham's head, the skull crushed, hacked from the body which lay in a corner, stripped naked, slashed with wounds, disgracefully mutilated. "God give you peace, Brother Oldham," prayed Capt. John as they lowered the corpse into the ocean."
After the settlement of Rhode Island and Connecticut, his vessel furnished about the only means of communication between the two colonies. At one time there was considerable anxiety in the RI colony, for John Gallop was delayed in his trip. Soon after, Roger Williams writes Governor Winthrop beginning in this manner,: "God be praised, John Gallop has arrived."
The name of GALLOP is said to be derived from the German words, GOTT and LOBE, meaning GOD and PRAISE.

Note: The above taken from Abstracts of Early Wills, in New England Historical & Genealogical Registger. It states at bottom of page....This abstract was made from the will as recorded. It is not on file. Also....The editor of Winthrop's Journal misjudges the chronigraphical attainments, at least, of this veteran and substantial old early settler of Boston, by unreflectingly pronouncing him of "less education than most of our early inhabitants, " because he made a mark for his name when he executed his will. Now that editor did not require to be told that such execution of a will is no proof at all of a man's ability to write his name. I shall show elsewhere that no man of that time wrote his name handsomer than John Gallop, if he were a fisherman; he was a merchant likewise....Editor.
