The following is excerpted from the text of the book:
"Robert Williams was born in Great Yarmouth, England, in 1593, and whose baptism is entered on the parish register of St. Nichols, Great Yarmouth, under date of December 11, 1608, he being a son of Stephen Williams. He married Elizabeth Stratton of Great Yarmouth, and they sailed for America in the ship Rose from Yarmouth landing April 15, 1635. Robert Williams settled in Roxbury, Mass., and was made a freeman in 1638. He reached the advanced age of 100 years, dying in Roxbury in 1693.
"On our maternal side we are descended from Capt. John Gollop, Sr., who came to this country from Mosterne, County Dorset, England, with the elder Governor John Winthrop's colony of emigrants in 1630. He belonged to the English army, and served under Lord Thos. Fairfax in the Netherlands. He settled first at Dorchester, but soon after removed to Boston and was identified with its settlement. He fought the first naval battle on the Atlantic Coast July, 1636, capturing and destroying a large number of hostile Indians who had murdered John Oldham. His son, Capt. John Gallup, came to this country in 1633. He married in 1643, at Boston, Hannah Lake, daughter of John and Margaret Lake. Madam Margaret Lake was the daughter of Edmund Reade, Esq., of Wickford, Essex County, England. and sister of Elizabeth Reade, who married John Winthrop, Jr., governor of Connecticut. In early life he showed signs of the bravery which afterwards distinguished him as an Indian fighter. He served in many battles. He was one of the leaders in the fearful swamp fight at Narragansett. In storming this Indian fort he led his men bravely forward, and was one of the six captains who fell in this memorable fight."
