Robert Ironside [Parents] was born in 1559 in Longe Bredie, Dorsetshire. He died in 1629. He married (pos) Jane "Jennie" Gilbert [date/place unknown]. Robert was employed as Resided Longbriddy.

I received on 13 Jan 2004 the following communication from Micheal Ironside Edwards, University of Bath, R.E.S.U. 2 East 3-26, Claverton Down, BATH, BA2 7AY:
"... We Ironsides (at least the Dorset line) are very fortunate to have had forefathers that were churchmen, and can trace solid lines back to the late 1400s. General Sir Edmund Ironside did a lot of work tracing sources in the early 1900s, and helped to compile a small hardback that was distributed to most family members arround the middle of the centuary."
"In my copy, both Ralph, and Jane are mentioned; however your interesting point "sister to Gilbert, bishop of Bristol" is not. [My note has consequently been deleted.] We have her as 'daughter of William Gilbert of Hawton, an Oxford 'don'. Ralph Ironside (1559-1629) was educated at Oxford, mat 1577, M.A.1585, having been born in Houghton-le-Spring in Durham, to a farmer John Ironsides."
"Martha's brother Gilbert (also educated at Oxford mat1604 Trinity) did indeed become "Bishop of Bristol" (1660-1671). Ralph was made Rector of Winterborne, Vicar of Long Bredy, and is later refered to as Mr Archdeacon (a title more often applied to his son Ralph, who married Margaret Strode, of Strode Manor Netherbury (somewhere the Gollops are familliar with!), and later became Archdeacon of Dorset.)"
"Your Ralph apparantly had a 'serious discussion' one evening over dinner at the home of Sir George Trenchard near Dorchester, with Sir Walter Raleigh and his brother Carew, who had both been long suspected of being aetheists."

(pos) Jane "Jennie" Gilbert.(pos) married Robert Ironside [date/place unknown].

They had the following children:

  F i Martha Ironside.
  M ii Gilbert Ironside.
  M iii Ralph Ironside Jr..

John Ironside.John was married [name unknown].

Martha (Mrs. Thomas Gallop).Martha married Thomas Gallop [date/place unknown].

Richard LAKE was born in 1539 in North Benfleet or Rayleigh,Essex,England. He was buried on 24 Sep 1599 in Great Fanton Hall,No. Benfleet,Essex,England. He married Anne WARDELL about 1564 in Essexshire,England.

Richard Lake and Anne Wardell were the 10th greatgrandparents of Winfield D. Gallup. According to tradition, the parents of Richard Lake of Essexshire were John Lake of Erby, Lincolnshire, and Elizabeth Lone. There exists at least one serious genealogical examination of this parentage for Richard and it does not make a connection between the Lakes of Essexshire and the Lakes of Lincolnshire; neither does it prove any other parents for Richard. Nevertheless, from the earliest days, as recorded in the original 1893 Gallup Genealogy, the Lakes have held that they were of royal blood. On January 3rd, 1896, the Mystic [CT] Press published a royal line for Richard Lake as one of a series covering families in the area who were of royal blood. It used the contention that John Lake of Erby was the father of Richard. Whether or not this royal line can be accepted without skepticism must await the discovery of corroborating source material which in all probability will never be found. Richard's royal line is presented in the appendix.

Anne WARDELL [Parents] was born in 1543 in North Benfleet,Essexshire,England. She died on 22 Sep 1599 in Wickford,Essexshire,England. She married Richard LAKE about 1564 in Essexshire,England.

Many compilers give Anne Wardell (1543 - 22 Sep 1599), daughter of Edward Wardell, as the spouse of Richard Lake of Irby, Lincolnshire but this is unsubstantiated. It is believed to be an error from confusing him with our Richard of North Benfleet, Essexshire, these places being 140 miles distant from each other.

They had the following children:

  M i John LAKE was born about 1565. He was buried on 10 Dec 1612.
  M ii Richard Lake was born about 1567. He died after 1599.
  F iii Mrs. George (Reignold) Lake was born about 1570. She was buried on 17 Sep 1599.
  F iv Margaret Lake was born about 1572 in Essexshire,England. She died after 1599.
  F v Sybil Lake was born about 1573. She died after 1599.
  F vi Joan Lake was born about 1574. She died after 1599.

John SANDELL [Parents] was born about 1525 in Basildon or Nevendon,Essex,England. He died on 15 Sep 1588 in Basildon,Essex,England. He married Thomasine (Mrs. John SANDELL) about 1549.

Thomasine (Mrs. John SANDELL) was born about 1525 in Nevendon,Essex,England. She died before 26 Apr 1598. She married John SANDELL about 1549.

  F iii Roberge Sandell was born about 1554. She died after 1598.
  F iv Margaret Sandell was born about 1556. She died after 1598.
  F v Elizabeth SANDELL was born in 1565/1570. She was buried on 4 May 1616.

John GALLUP ,III [Parents] was born in Sep 1646 in Boston,MA. He died 1 on 26 Dec 1733 in (prob.) Stonington,New London Co.,CT. He married Elizabeth HARRIS in 1675 in Ipswich,Essex Co.,MA.

John Gallup settled in Stonington on lands granted by the General Court to his father for services in the Indian Wars. He participated in King Philips War and was with his father in the Great Swamp Fight at Narragansett. He was a renowned Indian interpreter. He represented Stonington in General Court in 1685 and 1696 through 1698.
John is the common ancestor of Winfield D. Gallup and the originator of the famous "Gallup Poll", George Horace Gallup, whose line continues from here to Capt. John & Elizabeth, thence to Issac & Margaret, to William & Amy, to Nelson & Betsey, to John & Happy, to George & Nettie, to himself.

From "Genealogy of Gallup Family" By John D. Gallup, published 1893. None of the spelling has changed.

Thomas was born in England about 1618, his age being stated as "about" forty, in the records of the Quarterly Courts of Essex County in 1658. He was twelve years old when he came to America with his parents on the ship Lyon in May 1630. He left his mother's home in Charlestown before 1642, when in September, he was a member of the Ipswich company of militia which set out, twenty strong, on the expedition under Sergeant Howlet in 1643 to disarm Passaconoway, the Sagamore of Merrimac. For this service he received three shillings on December 4, 1643. In 1643, Thomas, like his brothers owned a house lot on Holme (now Center) Street in Rowley. In 1644, apparently having never lived there, he sold the property to Richard Holmes and John Bailey, confirming the sale in 1654, in a deed wherein he lists himself as a seaman.
By his marriage to Martha Lake he gained a powerful connection to the Symonds family and, more importantly, to Governor John Winthrop. Martha's aunt, Elizabeth (Reade), was the second wife of Gov. Winthrop and her aunt Martha (Reade) was the second wife of Hon. Samuel Symonds, Deputy Governor. In 1648 he purchased, from William Symonds a house and lot in Ipswich which became his homestead.The Symonds lot was adjacent to the lot that Thomas had previously purchased from John Warner. In 1666 Thomas signed the loyalist petition to King Charles II. He was elected a tythingman in 1667 and is shown on a list of commoners in 1678. Thomas left an extensive estate at his death in 1687.
Thomas' will is detailed and historically interesting because it names places and people of his time. It is here quoted in its entirety: "In the Name of God Amen. The 16th day of July & in the yeare of Grace 1687. I Thomas Haris of Ipswich in the Shire of Essex in New-england doe make & declare this my last will & testament in writing revokinge therby both in deed & in law all other former wills & Testaments. I being at this time weake in body, but of good & pfect memory (blessed be God) first I commend my soule into the hands of God my maker hopeing assuredly through the onely meritts of Jesus Christ my Savior to be made ptaker of life everlasting, & I comend my body to earth wherof it is made to be desently buried by my loveing wife Martha Harris whome I make & ordaine my sole executrixof this my will & testament, my Just debts to be paid by her out of my estate; And the remainder I give as followeth. Inprimis I give & bequeath unto Martha Harris my Deere & loveing wife, my dwelling house & Barne & the orchyard, & gardin, & three marsh Lotts at Plumb Island. And I give unto her two third pts of my Planting lott at Towne on the south side of the highway as far as the old fence, and all that planting lott on the North side off the highway afore named, & also I give to her one halfe of the Claypitt meadow, And two thirds of my marsh lott at the hundreds with my parte in the boate.

"Thomas Haris." [seal.] "Witnesses, "Daniel Epps senr "James Chute senr
This will was proven 14 September 1688 and his estates was inventoried at L576.11.03. On January 1, 1696, Thomas' widow Martha pointed out to the court that Thomas' will did not mention two of the Harris children: Elizabath Gallop and Margaret Staniford, "which fell out by the fault of him that wrote the same,". She requested authority to settle personal property on these two daughters. ( Essex Probate, 304:183)

Martha LAKE [Parents] was christened on 20 Jul 1624 in No. Benfleet,Essexshire,England. She died on 5 Apr 1700 in Ipswich,Essex Co.,Mass.. She married Thomas HARRIS on 15 Nov 1647 in Ipswich,Essex Co.,Mass..

Martha was descended from relatively wealthy landowners in England, her father being a Lake and her mother a Reade. Her aunt Elizabeth was the wife of Governor John Winthrop of Connecticut. A valuable connection which she brought to her marriage to Thomas Harris. Madam Rebecca Symonds, widow of Mrs. Harris' uncle by marriage, Deputy Governor Samuel Symonds, in her will made in 1695, left to "my cousin Martha Harris a good scarf of equal value with my best scarf." In the same will Martha's daughter Margaret was beqeathed by Madam Symonds, a gold ring and L3 in money. Martha's mother Margaret (Reade) Lake resided with Martha and Thomas in her later years.
