He married Elizabeth Harris, of Ipswich, Mass., daughter of Thomas and Martha Lake Harris, and granddaughter of Madame Margaret Lake. She was born at Ipswich, February 8, 1654.

He represented the town in the General Court 1685, 1696, 1697, 1698. He served with his father in Philips War, and was probably with him at the Narragansett swamp fight. He was on friendly terms with the Indians, and often acted as their interpreter. In 1701, a committee was appointed to find out and renew the bounds of the Winthrop land purchase, at Plainfield, Conn. This committee consisted of prominent men of the town, and a large number of Indians who served as guides. John Gallup acted as interpreter for the Indians. He owned land in Plainfield, but never removed there to live. He died April 14, 1735.
