Gallup, John D., The Genealogical History of the Gallup Family in the United States; also Biographical Sketches of Members of the Family (Press of the Hartford Printing Company: Hartford, CT. 1893), p. 23. Surety: 3. Mrs. Hannah (Lake) Gallup, came to this country with her mother, in the ship Abigail, arriving October 6, 1635, after a passage of ten weeks.
Mrs. Margaret Lake, with her daughters Hannah and Martha, accompanied her sister Elizabeth (Read) Winthrop, the new wife of Gov. John Winthrop, Jr., who returned to America in this ship with commissions from Lord's Say, Brook, and others. She left a son in England who never came to America.
As this was the first marriage in the male line of the emigrant ancestors, of the Gallop family, which took place in this country, and the commencement of the American line of descent, the lineage of his wife is here given:

John Lake, the father of Hannah (Lake) Gallop descended from the Lakes of Normanton, Yorkshire, who claimed descent through the Cailleys, from the Albinis, Earls of Arundel and Sussex, from the Counts of Louvaine, (the right line of Charlemagne) and from William the Conqueror.

The youngest sister of Margaret Lake, was the second wife of Gov. John Winthrop, Jr., and the mother of all his children.
Martha Epps, her eldest sister (widow) married for her second husband Deputy Governor Samuel Symonds, of Ipswich, Mass.
Thomas Read, the brother who came to this country and settled at Salem, Mass., where he was an ensign, returned to England, and entered Cromwell's army, was made a colonel, and assisted General Monk in the restoration of Charles II., was placed in command of Sterling Castle.
Martha, the second daughter of Margaret Lake, married Thomas Harris of Ipswich, Mass., November 15, 1647.
