This is the furthest back I have been able to place my ancestral roots, however there is evidence to suggest there were about 15 generations to Reginald de Northorpe in the 13th Century. I also have this following clip from a Tharold E.Northup of SanDiego, Ca.

Activities of the Northorpe family centred around Northorpe Hall, near Bourne, circa 1500. Thomas Northop married Elizabeth Abbye at Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire, on 21st October 1599. Thomas Northoppe, a descendant of Thomas de Northorp, is listed as a mercator in a 1389 poll tax listing. Northorpe Hall also had Yorkshire connections at Mirfield, Manningham and Bradford. Variations of the name include Henrie Northop, Henry Northup, Thomas Northop, Thoms de Northorp and Thomas Northoppe. Any information will be welcomed, particularly about the heirs of Henry Northup, born 8th November 1601 at Layston in Hertfordshire, England, who married Susan Marler of Kelvedon near Colchester, Essex, and anything about a son, Shephen Northup, born late summer 1635, and what may have happened to him.

We think this Stephen is likely the Stephen who emmigrated to America in 1645 and started the long line of Northups in the New World. Check back frequently for updates.

Children of THOMAS NORTHOPPE and MARGARET are:
2. i. THOMAS NORTHOPPE II., b. Abt. 1561, Layston - Buntingford, Hertfordshire, England.
