RETURN TO POST-1538 FAMILIES PAGE
The early descent is difficult to prove, with gaps in the various parish registers, so it is impossible to say with certainty where the family originated. Thomas' marriage in 1611 simply took place in the bride's parish (Saxton).
However Thomas was not the Thomas Galloway (son of Humfrey) baptised at York, St. Michael le Belfrey, (8th February 1584/5). This was a North Newbald family, and this Thomas was buried at North Newbald (3rd January 1609/10).
Nor was he the Thomas (son of Nicholas) baptised at Kirk Ella (8th July 1587), as he was buried on 28th of the same month.
[GALW591] Thomas Galloway (unknown origin) married (at Saxton, 19th November 1611) [DANY592] Elizabeth Danyell (born 1589, see DANYELL).
The family had at least seven children as follows:
Margaret (-). Margaret (of Holbeck) married (at Leeds, St. Peter, 25th June 1638) Robert Buckle (of Grinton). The family afterwards lived at Healey in Grinton parish;
Thomas (-). Thomas (of Holbeck) married (at Leeds, St. Peter, 30th November 1639) Eden Thomson;
[GALW601] John (born 1616), married Ann Allanbridge, see later;
William (-), married (at Calverley, 13th December 1648) Katerin Michell;
Mary (-), married (at Calverley, 4th February 1652/3) John Ambler;
James (-), died at Pudsey (buried at Calverley, 30th April 1686).
It is not known where the family lived, where the children were baptised, nor when Thomas and Elizabeth died.
[GALW601] John Gallawaye (born 1616), a clothier of Holbeck, married (at Calverley, 5th May 1640) [ALLA602] Ann Allanbridge (born 1617, see ALLANBRIDGE). They had about four children as follows:
John (-), died at Hunslet (buried at Hunslet Chapel, 4th February 1640/1);
[GALW611] John (baptised at Hunslet Chapel,12th March 1641/2), married 1. Ann Lalley; then 2. Elizabeth Chambers, see later.
The date of 14th March 1641 has been entered in the Calverley register among the 1626 entries, the register covering 1642 itself being missing. No doubt this date was inserted at a much later date.
Ann (-), married (at Calverley, 22nd August 1677) Jeremiah Wilson. This family lived at Pudsey;
Elizabeth (-), died unmarried at Pudsey (buried at Calverley, 7th August 1705).
John was mentioned in the Pudsey Court Rolls (15th September 1651 and 4th September 1661) as being obliged to take his corn to the Mr Calverley's mill, and not to any other mill, or pay a fine. Anne died at Pudsey, buried at Calverley (29th November 1658), and John senior died at Pudsey also, buried at Calverley (19th January 1692/3). John was assessed as having two hearths at Pudsey at the 1672 Hearth Tax. John left a will referring to his single daughter Elizabeth, married daughter Anne Wilson, son John, and a grandchild.
[GALW611] John Galloway (born 1642) married 1. (at Calverley, 22nd April 1679) Ann Lalley. They appear to have had no children. Later, John Galloway married 2. (at Leeds, St. Peter, 2nd July 1685) [CHMX612] Elizabeth Chambers (see CHAMBERS (2)). They had two children born at Pudsey and baptised at Calverley as follows:
Ann (baptised 29th July 1693);
[GALW621] James (baptised 13th May 1697), married Grace Smith, see later.
John Galloway was assessed with 2 hearths in the 1672 Hearth Tax for Pudsey. Elizabeth died at Pudsey (buried at Calverley, 16th April 1699), and John died at Pudsey also (buried at Calverley, 1st March 1700/1).
[GALW621] James Galloway (born 1697, son of John & Elizabeth) married (at Calverley, 30th May 1721) [SMIM622] Grace Smith (born 1699, see SMITH). They had seven children born at Pudsey and baptised at Calverley as follows:

Mary (baptised 19th June 1726), died young;
Elizabeth (baptised 24th February 1729/30), died (age 22 months) at Pudsey (buried there 16th December 1731);

Mary (baptised 12th June 1743), died (age 3) at Pudsey (buried at Calverley, 23rd October 1746).
James was variously described as being a labourer or clothier.
[GALW631] James Galloway (born 1733), a clothier, married (at Calverley, 31st March 1755) [COAT632] Patience Coates (see COATES). They had three children born at Pudsey and baptised at either Calverley Parish Church or Pudsey Chapel as follows:
Hannah (baptised at Calverley, 26th November 1760);
Joseph (baptised at Calverley, 28th February 1762);
[GALW642] Betty (baptised at Pudsey, 13th October 1765), married Thomas Baxter, see next.
