There is a memorial stone standing at White Hall Graveyard in Mystic, New London County, Connecticut for Capt. John Gallup beside his wife’s grave, but he is buried here at Smith’s Castle Mass Gravesite in Wickford, Washington County, Rhode Island.He was born in Mosterne, Dorsetshire, England and baptized in Bridport, Dorset, England on January 25, 1620/1 as the son of John Gallup/Gallop and his wife Christobel Bruchett. He arrived in Massachusetts on the ship Griffin with his mother and siblings September 4, 1633 three years after his father’s arrival in 1630. On July 4, 1632 John Winthrop wrote the following about Christobel Gallup’s fear of joining her husband in the colonies:”I have much difficulty to keep John Galloppe here by reason his wife will not come. I marvel at the woman’s weakness that she will live miserably with her children there, when she might live comfortably here with her husband. I pray persuade 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, for so he desires: it would be above £40 loss to him to come for her.”
John Gallup married Hannah Anna Lake 1643 in Boston. On February 25, 1650/1 John Gallup and his wife applied for house lots in New London, Connecticut.
In 1651; “On the town street east of Stallion & Bayley, a lot was laid out to John Gallup, eight acres in the heart of town covering the space east of the town street to the beach and extending north from State Street to Federal.”
From the colonial records of Hartford February 9, 1652; “John Gallup in consideration and with respect unto the services his father hath done for the country, hath given him up the river of Mistick, which side he will 300 acres of upland.” And the following year; “Hath given him a further addition to his land at Mistick, 150 acres, which he accepts and is satisfyde for what lands he formerly laide claim unto upon the general neck as a gift of his father’s, given by General Stoughton after Pequot war.” He moved to the east side of the Mystic river after this large grant of land. “He was one of the early settlers of Stonington; his homestead was bounded on the west by Mystic river, south by Captain Stanton’s place and east by Captain Denison’s land.”
In 1665 he represented the town of Stonington at the General Court. He was an Indian interpreter from 1665-1675. In 1667 he again represented the town of Stonington at the General Court. He is found on the Connecticut census of 1669 living in Stonington, Connecticut.
In 1671 he was granted 100 acres of land by the General Court of Connecticut. “With Massachusetts forces he was in the Pequot War and bore himself so bravely that the General Court of Connecticut gave him a grant of 100 acres of land.”
January 1675 he was made Captain of the 1st Company of the Connecticut Regiment where he fought in King Phillip’s War. In February 1675 in Narragansett, now South Kingston, Rhode Island having raised 70 men under Captain John Mason of Norwich, Captain John Gallup joined with him at the head of the Mohegans. On December 19, 1675 he was killed along with ten men of his company in the Great Swamp Fight, fought in Narragansett, Washington, Rhode Island.
The division of his estate by order of the County Court for Stonington, New London, Connecticut: “Widow £100; son John £137; Benadam £90; to William and Samuel each £89; to five daughters each £70; Widow Hannah also a large grant of land.”
Although he was buried where he died in Wickford, Washington County, Rhode Island, a memorial was erected at Whitehall Burial Ground. His wife and some of his children are buried at Whitehall.
