Origins of the Name
The Allsopp name and its variants (Alsop, Allsop, Alsopp, etc) are believed to have originated around 900-1000AD in the village of Alsop-en-le-Dale, anciently Elleshope, which is located in Derbyshire, England.
There are a number of Allsop(p) lineage's in Australia today, many of which can be traced back to the convict period of the early 1800's. The first person recorded was William Alsop, a convict, who arrived in NSW from England in 1790 aboard the Surprise as part of the Second Fleet.
The first recorded birth of an Allsop(p) in NSW being that of Francis Alsop in 1825.
