  • Notes 
    • John, son of the Immigrant, came to this country with his mother, two brothers, and sister, Joan in the ship Griffin, arriving in Boston, September 4, 1633.
      Early on, he engaged in the coastwise trade with his father. i

      John left Boston in 1640 and went to Taunton, then part of Plymouth Colony, where he remained until 1651. He then removed to New London, where he lived until 1654, when he went to what is now Stonington, then a part of New London, and settled upon a grant of land given to him by that town in 1650, in regognition of distinguished services of himself and his father in the Pequot War. He represented the town in the General Court in 1665 and 1667, and was an Indian interpreter.

      When KingPhilip's War broke out, New London County raised a company of seventy men under Captain John Mason of Norwich and Captain George Dennison of Stonington. Captain John Gallup joined them as the head of the Mohegans, a band of friendly Indians. These troops formed a union with those of other colonies and were engaged in the fearful Swamp Fight, December 19, 1675, at Narraganset, within the limits of South Kingston, Rhode Island. In storming the fort, Captain Gallup led his men bravely forward and was one of the six captains who fell in the memorable fight. He was buried with his fallen comrades in one grave near the battle ground. A complete victory was gained over the savage foe, but with great loss of life on both sides.

      The General Court afterward made several grants of land to his widow and children in consideration of the great services he had rendered and the loss his family had sustained by his death.
