Early Origins of the Glossop family
The surname Glossop was first found in Derbyshire
at Glossop, a market town that is today within the Borough of High Peak. The place name is thought to be of Saxon origin derived from the Old English personal name
"Glott" + hop as in "valley of a man called Glott." CITATION[CLOSE]

Moving forward from the Saxon time, the Domesday Book
lists the place as Old Glossop Lyfing in Longdendale and was listed as "the land of the King."CITATION[CLOSE]

William Peverell (c.
1040-c. 1115) (Latin: William Piperellus), a Norman knight, listed on "The Battle Abbey Roll" was granted the manor and lands by King William I. His father, William Peverell the Elder was probably a legitimate son of William the Conqueror and a Saxon princess named Maud Ingelrica. Today Old Gossop is a parish village and part of the town of Glossop.
