Galpine was born at Blandford Forum, Dorset. He was elected an associate of the Linnean Society on 20 February 1798. He published Synoptical Compend of the British Flora, a translation of Sir James Edward Smith's Compendium florae Britannicae (1800): Galpine's preface was dated at Blandford, 1 January 1806, but he died on 6 January. After his death three enlarged editions of the work were printed by a London bookseller, dated respectively 1819, 1829, 1834.
