The story of most Lathrops in America starts with the illustrious Rev. John Lothropp. There is lots of information about him on the Web. Here is some of what I have found about Rev. John Lothrop and Hannah House. He was the second pastor of the first Independent (Congregational) Church in London. At that time the King, Charles I, was in a conflict with Parliament. Puritans Presbyterians and Independents, all dissenters from the Church of England supported Parliament. This conflict led up to the English Civil War. King Charles I would be beheaded in 1649 by forces led by Lord Cromwell during the English Civil War.
As a result of the political conflict between King Charles and
Parliament religious dissenters were persecuted. Rev John was
imprisoned from 1632 to 1634. While in prison his wife, Hannah House,
died. He was banished to America upon his release. He led a group of
followers to Scituate Massachusetts. They sailed on 18 Sept. 1634 on
the Griffin to Boston MA. He became pastor of the First Church in
Scituate where he remained till 1639 when a dispute split the church.
Rev John led a group of his followers to Barnstable Mass., about 40
miles to the south east on the north shore of Cape Cod. Barnstable
considers Rev John Lothrop to be its founder and has several references
to him on its web pages. His house is now the town library.
Here is what VT Andrews has to say about Rev John's father Thomas:
5396. Thomas 14 Lathrop was born in Cherry Burton, Yorkshire, England 19 June 1536. Thomas died in Wd, Elton or Harthil, Yorkshire, England.
He married three times. He married Elizabeth Mrs. Clark 5 October 1560 in Cherry Burton, Yorkshire, England. He married Mary Howell 29 July 1574 in Etton, York, England. Mary was born about 1556 in Yoxall, Staffordshire, England. Mary was the daughter of John Howell and Mrs. John Howell. Mary died 6 January 1588 in Etton, Yorkshire, England, at 31 years of age. Her body was interred 6 January 1588 in Etton, Yorkshire, England. He married Jane Carter 11 November 1588 in Etton, Yorkshire, England.
Thomas Lathrop and Mary Howell had the following children:
5399 iii. Thomas Lathrop was born in Etton, Yorkshire, England 14 October 1582. Thomas died 20 October 1628 in England, at 46 years of age. He married four times. He married Mrs. Elizabeth Lathrop. He married Elizabeth Clark. He married Elizabeth. He married Anna Hammond 17February 1636.
+ 3787 iv. John Rev. Lathrop [Reverend] was born 20 December 1584.
5400 v. William Lathrop was born in Etton, Yorkshire, England 24 May 1587. William died about
1628 in Yorkshire, England.
The following was from the now defunct http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~micah/anceshtm.htm
Their 17th century descendant, Rev. John Lathrop, a 26-year-old theology graduate of Queens College, on October 10, 1610, married HANNAH HOUSE, who was born in 1590 in Eastwell, Kent, a daughter of REV. JOHN and ALICE (LLOYD) HOUSE, who were both born in 1572 in Eastwell and married in 1590. The family name was sometimes spelled Howse. Rev. Lathrop was part of the First Independent (Congregational) Church in England, which was later banned during the persecution by Archbishop Laud. Rev. Lathrop was imprisoned at Newgate Prison in 1632. While her husband was in prison, Hannah died February 16, 1633. Rev. Lathrop was released in 1634 and banished. Rev. Lathrop fled with his son to Plymouth Colony, where he resided in Scituate until 1639 and then in Barnstable. Rev. John, who died November 8, 1653 in Barnstable, and Hannah (House) Lathrop had a son Samuel (#8).
Descendants of Walter Lawtrop by Barbara Joan Lathrop has an excellent listing of the Lathrop family starting with Walter Lawtrop b.1355 through to Rev John's children. Her notes on Rev John are the most thorough I have seen.
Olive Hoffman on the LATHROP-L@rootsweb.com mailing list warns
"The reader is cautioned against Gustave Anjou's "LOTHROP FAMILY RECORDS IN
ENGLAND FROM 1480 - 1685" Many statements made in this publication cannot be
verified in original sources and Anjous' works are largely discredited.
A serious error found in Anjou that has since been perpetuated in other (mentioned works that I will not name here on the net) is that Thomas Lothrope, father of the Rev John married as his 2nd wife Mary Salte, d/o Robert Salte of Yoxall, Staffordshire. Mary is allegedly the mother of (Rev) John Lathrop. This Thomas "Lathrop" was living in Leigh, Staffordshire, in 1614 and had children Nicholas, Humphrey, Ralph, and Jane, w/o Francis Whitcomb. The father of Rev John was Thomas of Etton, Yorkshire. He was buried at Etton 9 Oct. 1606 and he had NO sons named Nicholas, Humphrey or Ralph. His 2nd wife Maud (NOT Mary) was buried at Etton on 6 June 1588 (all printed works call her Mary and give a burial date of 6 Jan 1588.Also on the topic of Rev John's mom, Candace Lazzaro writes
I can confirm that Huntington in his "Genealogical Memoir..." does not give a last name for Rev John's mother and lists Mary Salte as wife of a different Thomas Lathropp than the father Rev John. ( p. 9) Here is what Huntington has to say about Thomas and his wives on p. 18:
"... I found an article in the Oct. 1995 issue of The American Genealogist #280, Vol. 70, No. 4 called "Lothrop and House Entries in the Parish Registers of Eastwell,Kent." by Clifford L. Stott. Mr. Stott says that Maud __?__ was John's mother, not Mary Howell or Mary Salte. He remarks that Gustave Anjou's "Lothrop Family Records i England from 1840 to 1685" was the source that started the controversy. It stated that John's mother was Mary Salte .... however, Mary Salte (or some Mary) was the wife of a different Thomas Lothrop; not our John's parents. This Thomas has sons Nicholas, Humphrey and Ralph.... ours did not. Now, I've had enough (too much) trouble with old Gustave to know that anything he writes should be questioned. But while Mr. Stott says that Maud was buried at Etton on 6 June 1588, he doesn't give a source. Is there a tombstone or church records?"
3. Thomas was born in Cherry Burton and married (1) Elizabeth (widow) Clark, who was buried in Etton, July 29, 1574. He married (2) Mary, who was buried in Etton, Jan 6, 1588; and (3) Jane, who after his death became the wife of _____ Coppendale.
He removed to Etton, Harthill wapentake, East Riding, Yorkshire, about 1576, and here he died in 1606...By the way ...I just checked a map, Etton is about a mile from Cherry Burton. So Thomas didn't move very far from the Lathrop family home. The question of who Rev John's Mother is remains for future researchers.
Here is what I found on a web site about Barnstable: http://www.rootsweb.com/~mabarnst/barnhist.html. - The County, Town or Village?
Town of Barnstable - founded by Rev Lothrop and his group after they left Scituate (pronounced Skit'-u-et).("First mentioned 5 Mar 1638/9",p. 63, ibid.;) ("September 3, 1639 is the precise birth date given to Barnstable, which really represents just the best guess of when a band of hardy colonists officially took advantage of Plymouth Colony laws passed in March, 1638 authorizing towns to send deputies to the General Court." The [Yarmouth] Register, p. 22, 7 Sept. 1989 ).
And this came from a site about tourist attractions on Cape Cod: http://www.insiders.com/
West Parish Meetinghouse 2049 Meetinghouse Way (Rt. 149), West Barnstable " 362-4445 The seeds of this historic church first sprouted in 1616, with the birth of the Congregationalists in England. One of the men leading the way was Rev. John Lothrop, who came across to land at Plymouth and then briefly settle in Scituate in 1634. Though the settlement of Barnstablebegan toward the east and the original meetinghouse was built in 1646 on Cobb Hill at Barnstable Village, this West Parish Meetinghouse, built in 1717, points to the growth in population that took place as the town found it necessary to split into east and west parishes. Though the original east parish meeting house is now long gone, the West Parish building stands today as a proud reminder of those early years. The bell was made by Paul Revere, and the 1723 English gilded cock weathervane earned the church its nickname, "The Rooster Church."
Sturgis Library Rt. 6A, Barnstable " 362-6636 Along historic Route 6A in Barnstable Village rests what is believed to be the oldest house in the town of Barnstable. It also happens to be the oldest library building in the country. The oldest section of the Sturgis Library was built in 1644. Its first occupant was the town's first minister, Rev. John Lothrop who settled the town in 1639. On display at the library is Rev. Lothrop's bible. This building was also the birthplace and home of Capt. William Sturgis, who later presented the house to the town to be used as a library. The library has prestigious genealogical and maritime history including many collections, charts and maps.
Sacrament Rock Rt. 6A, Barnstable " No phone. This is the site of the first church service on the Cape, presented by Rev. John Lothrop in 1639 before there was a meeting house built. Unfortunately the rock was dynamited to make way for Route 6A. The pieces of the rock were collected and joined back together with cement along the side of the route, complete with a plaque telling of its historical sgnificance.
is another church which descends from the original congregation brought
to America by Rev John. This church is called The Unitarian Church
of Barnstable. The following is from their pew card:
Early in the 17th Century, The Rev John Lothrop and his followers left England for these shores seeking religious independence. They settled first in Scituate, Massachusetts, and a few years later, in 1639, came to Barnstable. They constructed their first meeting house in 1646 on Coggins' Pond, about a mile from the present church.
By the early 1700's the town had grown sufficiently large to support two parishes. Members in the East Precinct erected a building on this present site on Cobbs Hill, and anther building was completed in the west end of Barnstable. In 1717 the original church became two churches. ... The church is affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association... .
story about the burn mark in the bible is that the page shown
burned during the trip across the Atlantic on the Griffin. Rev John
in the missing text from memory. It is now on display in the Lothrop
of the Sturgis Library.
You get the idea. This guy Rev John was a real hot shot. He had lot lots of kids I list them in part II below and here's some one else who does too: http://www.sengir.com/genealogy/lothrop.html
Norris Taylor has a very good page covering most aspects of what is known of Rev John. He calls it: John Lathrop Noted Preacher Barnstable, Mass.
The West Parish Meetinghouse of Barnstable has a page devoted to it's history in which Rev John figures prominently.
Here is a Mormon view of Rev John, He is viewed as the Forberarer of Prophets ad Presidents

7. Samuel, born in England, and came with his father to Scituate in 1634, thence to Barnstable, where he Married, Nov. 28, 1644, Elizabeth Scudder, who had been dismissed from the church in Boston Nov. 10, 1644, to remove her church relation to that in Barnstable. She is reported in Savage as a sister to that John Scudder who was in Barnstable in 1640. He had made the acquaintance of Miss Scudder in Boston, where he commenced his business life as a house builder, afterwards combining with his extensive farming operations. Their marriage was recorded by his father on the Barnstable Church Register as follows: "My sonn Samuel & Elizabeth Scudder Marryed at my house by Mr. Freeman Nov. 28, 1644."
They settled in Barnstable where his house stood next to that of John Scudder.
He is reported, in 1643, as one of five Lothrops at Barnstable liable to bear arms.
In 1648 he removed to New London, Connecticut, then called Pequot. We now find Mr. Lothrop mentioned in two letters from Governor Winthrop to his son at Pequot. In one of these bearing date Aug. 14, 1648, on the subject of obtaining a minister for the settlement, he writes, "Your neighbour Lothrop came not at me (as I expected) to advise about it," etc.
His house lot in the new plantation was the third in order from that of John Winthrop Jr. Esq. and his name was one of the first eighteen to whom were assigned lands on the east side of the "great river" of Pequot, and for these the lots were drawn on the 17th and 31st of January, 1648-9.Huntington lists their children on pages 46 - 48:

"HUNTINGTON" refers to Rev. Elija B Huntington. author of "A Genealogical Memoir of the Lo-Lathrop Family..." This book is the "Bible" of Lathrop genealogical research. I found it at the Otis Library in Norwich. They have lots of Lathrop genealogical material there. The Library of Congress has it on micro-fische in DC. It is also for sale online at: The Quintin's Family History Centre. They will print a copy just for you.
I found Huntington's "Genealogical Memoir..." the most helpful book in bridging the gap between the best known Lathrops in the 17th century and those I already knew from the 19th and 20th centuries. Huntington lists most but not all Lathrops in America who lived before 1875. He is more likely to list those who lived near him in New England, though many are listed from other parts of the country.
Here is the full title and Library of Congress number:
