John Gallup (or Gallop), the ancestor "of most of the families of that name in this country" (as of 1893), came to New England from Dorset, England, in 1630. His wife, Christobel, and his children followed in 1633. John was a mariner who, with his sons, carried on a coastal trade in his own vessels. On one of his expeditions he chanced upon the murderers of his old friend, John Oldham, whom he avenged in a most frightful fashion, thus launching the Pequot War (1637). There are full accounts of this memorable event in the book's appendix.
The appendix also contains transcripts of military commissions and orders for John, Nathan, and Benadam Gallup; four pages detailing the service of the Gallups "who marched from Connecticut for the relief of Boston in the Lexington Alarm, 1775"; and tables of Gallups who served in Connecticut regiments in the War of 1812 and the Civil War. Another appendix entitled "Miscellaneous," contains early land records, wills, pedigrees, and inventories.
Among families of collateral lines in the Gallup genealogy, the following are most numerous: ALLEN, ALLYN, AVERY, BAILEY, BILL, BREWSTER, BRIGGS, BROWN, CLARK, CRARY, DEAN, DENNISON, FISH, FRINK, GEER, HALL, KENNEDY, KINNE, LAMB, MORGAN, PALMER, PARK, PHILIPS, SPICER, STANTON, TANNER, TAYLOR, WHEELER, WHIPPLE, WILLIAMS, and WINDSOR.
The index in this volume is different than usual. For persons with the Gallup surname, there are ten separate lists, one for each generation, with each individual identified only once, by date of birth and record number (i.e., no page numbers). Persons with other surnames are identified only by surname and page number (i.e., given names are not printed here).
