The name Gollop comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a person who was a fast runner. The surname is derived from the Old Norman word walup and the Old French word galop. The word eventually became wallop which literally means to run. Therefore, the surname Gollop described the physical abilities of the original bearer.

Gollop Early Origins



The surname Gollop was first found in Dorset where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
