CRABBE, Mary 1
Mary married John GOLLOP, son of Thomas GOLLOP and Agneta (Agnes) WATKINS, about 1590 in North Bowood, Dorset, England. (John GOLLOP was born about 1589 in North Bowood, Dorset, England and died on 11 Jan 1650 in Mosterne Parish, Derbyshire, England.)
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. 17. Surety: 3. John Gallop, the ancestor of most of the families of that name in this country, came to America from the parish of Mosterne, County Dorset, England, in the year 1630.
He was the son of John Gollop, who married _____ Crabbe, who was the son of Thomas and Agnes (Watkins) Gollop, of North Bowood and Strode, and whose descendants still own and occuy the manor of Strode.
. Many compilations are found which provide an ancestry in England for John GALLUP of Boston, MA. However, such claims likely all have their roots in John D. Gallup's Genealogical History of the Gallup Family in the United States (1893), in which English pedigrees were quoted in support of the claim that John GALLUP of New England was son of John GALLUP and Mary CRABBE of Mosterne, Dorset, England.
Charles Wilson Allen obtained a copy of the subject pedigree and found it had been mis-quoted, publishing his "Gallop Genealogy: Corrections" in Apr. 1963 [NEHGR 114:151-52] and concluding that the claimed Gallup ancestry in England "is not substantiated by this or any other document known to me."
The Gallup ancestry search continues, with Gerald James Parsons' "John Gallop/Gollop of Bridport, Dorchestershire, England, and Boston, Massachusetts" [TAG 68:1 (Jan. 1993), pp. 11-13] detailing the available records, including the marriage of John GALLUP and Christabell BRUCHETT and the baptism of their seven children at St. Mary's Church, Bridport, Dorchestershire, England. Parsons also concluded that "no other records needed to determine John Gallop's parentage and/or his relationship to the other Gollops in Bridport were located."
Available material concerning John GALLOP is reviewed in The Great Migration Begins, Volume II, by Robert Charles Anderson (1995), pp. 725-28, and the Bridport records are included in the article on John GALLOP. In commenting on another publication, the author states that "the section on English ancestry has been superseded and should be ignored." All that is known of the immigrant's birth is that he was born "By about 1593 based on date of marriage."
