Migration of the Jollip family to the New World and Oceana

Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Jollip or a variant listed above: Anne, Christobel, Humphrey and John Gallop who settled in Nantasket in 1630.
