FOREWORD. 

The greater part of the matter cont-^lned In this volume 
was collecte'i by Tianlel Gould Allen [Mo. 343] from bible and 
other records, and by personal Interviews with the older 
members of the family. It was published in 1898, three 
years after the death of the compiler, under the title 
"Genealogy of the Allen T^arally" or "History of Quidnessett". 
Had Mr. Allen lived to have properly prepared his manuscript 
for the press he would undoubtedly have discovered and. correct- 
ed many of the errors fm6. discrepancies which manifested 
themselves after it was printed. 

As the edition was very smallv it was thought best 
to publish a revised edition, adding an Index and as much new 
data as po<3sible. 

This volume oontq Ins .therefore, all the matter of 
any importance contained in the first edition, with as many 
corrections and additions as could be gathered. All dates, 
80 far as possible, have been verified or corrected by a 
close search of the Vital Records of Rhode Island and other 
works, as well as by correspondence. 

Any one finding errors is requested to send correct 

data which will be entered in a copy and deposited in the 

NEWBERRY LIBRARY, Chicago, to Insure preservation and, at the 
same time, be available to anyone who might desire to consult it.

TO Trace Your Ancestry. 

After locating your parents by the Index, you will find 
Ills, or her 
trfeftj^^inrn^ririiini n-umber just above the narae; then look for 

the same number further forward under the v;ord, Ohildren» 

This will give the name and family of your grandparent, and 

o 

so on. Illustration: Christopher Harris Arnold is the 

g 

head of family #518, on page ; the superior figure 

indicates that he is in the eighth generation from Wlllian , 

the emigrant. The names in parenthesis give the line of 

descent, vi2. , his father, grand.father, great-grandfather, etc. 

Turning forward to page , we find that #518 is one of the 

7 
children of Phebe Waterman Allen C^^o. ."539] who married Nathan 

Allen Arnold. Turn forward again and No. 339 will be found 

6 
on page , as one of the children of Thomas GOTold Allen 

[No. 191], Continue In this way until the first generation 

is reached. Reverse this process to find the children, 

grandchildren, etc. , of any given person. Those having 

the sign + will be found under his or her individual number 

in the following generation. 



EXPLANATIONS, 
In a number of Instances authorities, or persons aencLtng 



<?>^ 



m data have given different dates of birth, death ^«4- marriage/ 
In such cases preference has been given to the date which 
carried the best evidence of being correct, if given in 
full m the Vital Records of Rhode Island, such dates have 
been given preference. In^cases where there was no way to 
determine which was correct, both dates have been given. 

f^ome of the Vital Records of Rhode Island, notably those 
of NORTH KINGSTOWN, have been badly damaged by fire and other 
causes, which accounts for the absence of a number of names 
or parts o-^ names, as well as incomplete dates of birth, death 
and marriage.

Hopklnton, T^^terly anri. Charleetovi'n. 

7oyyFze,vXy Quldnee^ett wog hounrieri on the north by the 
Potowomut river, extencung frora Greene's Porge as far north 
as the Maskachu^e brook or Magcachov;af;e river, thence fcllow- 
ing the Indian footpath or Pequct road., no^v called the Po-^t 
road, to the Cocuragquiesic river, now called Gtony Hook, near 
the house on tlie npdike fam, thence east a fevi rods on this 
brook and the Cociunfiicusguc Kar'nor, cr ^/Ickford Harbor; on the 
east by the Narragansett 'i^hy. 

After the line beti^een I'/qghington and Kent co-antleg waa 
egtabllahed, its northern line followed up the Potowomut 
river to Hunt'jg bridge, thence westerly on the Post road. 

The first purchase in the Nar-^agansett country wag made 
by Bichard ^r-nith in the year IG.^7. This tract of land 

comprises the Updile fat^n in the s out hv/es tern part of 
'juidnessett. "He erecte.d a house for trade and gave free 

entertainment to travelers, it being on the great road of 
the countri'^. " It ivas nade of logs and stood where the 
Updike house nov; stands, and sorae of the timbers find bricks 
of that house are still in the one nov? standing. By the 

marriage of Riaith' s daughter into the Updike f'^r.ily this 
estate, given to her by the vdll of her father, took that 
name, and so remained until it passed into the hands of 
Captain Joseph Congdon. Five or six years later Roger 

Williaras and one wucox built houses near ?^nith. As 



Wtl-linne d.i'.ted «50i(ie oi* his letteyg at CocujnsqulsBicK. it ie 
evident that he spent some of hi?? tine at thi^i place and. 
probably preached to the Indians. The Narragansett t.-r'ibe 

at this tine nimbered thirty thousand eoulg, including five 
thousand fighting nen. It i»^ safe to conclude that they 

were more numerous in Quidne!?-*^tt, Cocurascussick and Naraocock 
or Namcook (Boston fl^ck), than xn any other place. We hav« 

never be-^n able to find the exact location where Canonicus 
and Pliant on ojnoh, or even the iwder Sachem Coquinariuand 
resided. As the Indians were of a roving disposition they 

jiight ha^re resided at one tine in Narragansett and at another 
in nhowonut(\Varwick ), or Aiuidnecke (Rhode Island). Some 

have fixed the place near ^'-'ioxford. Roger Williams leased 

the land that he oc:rapied, and in the vear 1651 sold to 
Richard ninith his trading house, his t^vo hig guns and a small 
island for goats whi.ch had been lent hin by the Sacheir.s. 

The Quirinessett territoi^y was purchased of Racher; 
Coquinanuond, Tune 11, 1659, by Major Hunphrey Atherton and 
ills partners, twentythree yea^s after Roger 'Villians had 
purchased Providence, and twenty two years after Coddington 
and others h'-'d purchased of Canonicus and Miantonoraoh, 
Aouldnecke ov Rhode Island. Newport \7as organised into 

■■• tois?r)ship in the vear 16:^7. 

Canonicus and Miantononioh were the grand sachems of all 



the trtbee In Hhode Iglnrrl, nnr:. r, oTrt of UaQsachusetts. 
T'le \^"^^P!«rpnsett t-»rlbe wns the no^t potent in >Iev/ irnelfinrl, 
and all, or ne«irly all, the otherpi vieve tributaries. 
Miantono?noh inherited the chief tan^hip frcj:; Jii^B father, but 
during hi? ab-^ence in v.-ar engai^en.'^nts , hi<3 uncle Canonicup 
was lookeii to a?5 procurator. A nore worthy, upright 

personage th^ dui^Xy race n«3V'-'r knew. He v/as .nearly eighty 

years of age when Roger Willians fir'st nade hie acquaintance 
and frionriRhip. Hig judfpient j^nd crafty echeiae^ were felt 

and respected far and near. The great r.achej:. of the 

Na-^ragan«5ett? dt«^'^ -Tune 4, 1647, a very old raan, nearly' 
ninety years of age. He was until ti:e end, a friend to 

Poger ^'111"'. ai'->'? nnr! hi'= ric:oor'.i. nt.P>a ,i v fn.'^ '-ettlement of Rhode 
Island. 

Miantono.uoh was a famous young prince. He was a 

proud-spirited, turbulent chief, never •'".t yp.p,t, J'aesachu- 

setts and Connecticut both planned his capture, b^/- the use 
of the Mohicans, through their chief, nncas. The plan was 
successful. ]/-iantononioh was captured and taken to Hartford, 

rcrce ncnths after^^^ard the two colonies advised hir death. 
According to tiie decision, 'Incas carried Ki'-mtononoh to the 
spot frora where he had been tahen, and on their arrival one 
of Hncas' men split Iv'iantonOuCh' % heod open from behind 
killing hin instantlv.

I have heen unable to -f^ind the quantity of virnciy.m 
that Kaior Atherton paid ■for Ouidnessett , but there is no 
doubt but th^it he made a good thing by his speculation!?. 

The- purchasers invested their money for the intp.rest

saw, even at that early iay, that the l^nd ivas valuable, that

to raising com, ^hich was the staple product of the coiontry. 
The raisin*": of stock, horses ^nd sheep, had no more inviting

of John Green and "^on, vho owned a large tract in that region) 
188 acres of land, paying f?933 1/3 for the sa'ne. The first 

block house was built on the east side of Allen's Rocks, 
vvhich rise to a nearly perpendicular height of twenty or 
thirty feet for a distance of about thirty rode. The 

second house w^s built a little wajr from the first, dowi 
a declivity, and v.'as enclosed v/ith ;^; stone wall six feet high. 
the area being about one and one-half acres. The house was 

in froi;: the road sorae eighty rods or nore. The3'' built at 

these points because they were sheltered frora the bleak, cold 
w?.nds from the vr«qt. north and northeast. The land around 

was very stony. 'Proni the qiiantity of shells foiind in that 

lot, it was evident that they feasted liberally on shellfish

which v/ere foi^d In r^^A a^jout Quidnessett harbor in great 
abund^inc?. On th-^ e^ist si^le of the lot is q shallow v;ell 

of excellent water that 'quenched their thirst and supplied 
the house for culinary purposes. ^ron tjie hie:hest lyolnt 

of this rocK. is one of the raogt charming vlewg foimd on the 
shores of the S-v/. It overlooiis most of the exp^mse of

wich, while in the foreground nay be seen the Islands of 
Patience, Prudence, Hope and Despair, Tlie rock is about 

a mile fron the harbor, and frora t]-iree to five miles from the 
islands. 

After a saw nill was erected soinv/ two or three miles 
away, a large hip-roof nanslon was built on '.hXs estate. 
Rix generations were born in this house, and, after surviving 
the storras of 170 years, it v.';ib torn down in 1831, to give 
place to a one and one-half glory cottage. The farm v/ae 

deeded by John Allen to his son John who beogne sole heir 
to the ?aomestead far;a of 1^50 acres, the deed of vvhich v;as 
given January/ i:^, 17:^"^, with a raarsh of five acres. John /yx 

left a daughter, Margaret, who married Christopher AWen . 0^,rlj 
The place hag always been owned by sone of their descendants. 
A Little nore than sixtyflve acres of the east part of the

HON. JOHN ALLEW was bom at the homestead of his fatlier 

on the west bank of Allen's harbor In ^lorth Klngston-i. KIb 

advantages for education were as good as the corxion schools 
of his day afforded. There was but one schoolhouse In the 

tov3i and that happened to be about a half mile from his home. 
It proved to ^-^e the stepplnL" stone to his .l^.iture usefulness. 
He shov;r-d nothing remarkable In early life. 

On M»5iy S7, 1769, four months after his first raarrlage, 
he boujjht the Robert westcott faTTjn of eighty aoree, nov owned 
by Joseph Madison. Judge Allen lived on thlg farm when he 

was taken prisoner by the British. 

Nothing vri.ll develop a man's character earlier In life 
and more assuredly than war. John Allen v;as a -y^^w^i^ man 

but was never a ml 11 tar;'- m.an. He had made knov/n his mind 

and deten.iinatlon early in the Pevolutiori. He v/as determin- 

ed to support the cause of Liber'-y and In dependence at the 



52 



qacrlftce Of life pn^l fortune. He wfjs not n f5Peech-rcaking 

man, but hr.ri £:T<eat influence with his neighbors who stood 
about two Patriots to one Tory. He hf>(\ opent j„ost of his 

life in Quidneseett , but in 1776 v;hen the J3ritish invaded 
Newpovt and had control of all the lower na\-'t of Narragansett 
Ba3', he was obliged to le-ave I'as farm in the handg of some 
other pel-son. 

He had been accuftoned to boating f^tones from Hope 
I'^land to Kewort, and it nas quite convenient for Ilia to 
take supplies froro Quidnegsett to the Araerican arjue ^t Tiver- 
ton, with his sloop Seaflower , and hi?? craft being in danger 
of seisu^e so near to i=!ir Peter Parker's giin ships, he moved 
his family and bo'-.t into Greenwrlch but continued his vocation. 
In the spring of 1779 he returned to his farra. The British 

were so disquieted that they resolved..to capture hiji, and 
'also William Spencer, Christopher Hall, Oliver r^>ink and C, 
Tillinghast. ?5pencer had be-^n placed upon the Nicholas 

Spink fqrm while the owner w-^.s confined in Scituate, ten or 
twelve jailes frora the aeashore \'ihe:<?e his farra was situated, 
for coramunicating v/ith the British and running supplies to 
th^K It night. 

A large nwiber of Tories frora Quirinessett arid other parts 
of Wo-th KingstoiTn, had joined the British i^der the guidance 
of Col. George Wightrcan (the title v/as c^Lven hii- at the clo<5e 
of the Ti'rench rind In^^ian War ). The business of this gang 



w^s to plijncler the f«irr.s on tJie seashore. They i)illat;ecl 

and TDicrned five houses and. hairnB in one ?rirjit in Hor^th Kings- 
town, two houses being in Quiftne'?r-^'-tt . 

A breach of confidence occurred here between Jolin Allen 
and q Tory cousin, Mansfield Allen. whii^. Jo'rji v/es living 

in East Greenwich, Mansfield was tarust into jail fvor being 
iniralcal to the United States. Out of si/rapath^r for his 

yoijng relative, John sent hir. food froir. hi8 ovm table on 
several occasions. /Jansfield, after making suitable con- 

cessions to Vr^. council of war, »/hich net at Greenwich, was 
released. Very soon thereafter he cf'ir.e in contact with. 

the 'Vightni?"in "Gfing" and deterirvined to turn traitor to Iiis 
country. He applied to John Allen for the u^-e of hip sloop 

to convey provisions to the British, then lying a short 
distance off Hope Island. He was told he cowld. not have it 
for such a purpose, biit if he v.ould take his t^'ade to his ovm 
countr-'^mien he wO'.ild he v/eicone to the use of it. TJiis in- 

censed the man and he resolved to '.-e tali ate, ^ccorrlingly 

he brou>rht the British froia their ships under cover of the 
darkness, to take John Allen and vviiiiRm Spencer, vdth their 
cattle and family supplies, to Newport. ^everything Spencer 

had was taken and he a^id his cattle forced to the shore, a 
quarter of a mile f-'^oii hifj house, v/nere three barges were 
a?;aiting their arri^'al. One of the boats wag grounded by 

t]i8 ebb of the tide so thPt it could not be rot off. It 

fell into the hands of the Patriots and the first nan that 
boarded it was William Parks. 

Elated wit]\ his success, Mansfield conducted the British 
to +he house of John Allen, a q-ioarter of a nile tn -mother 



54 



rUT-ection. A mulatto boy, heionrlng to Jo'iti /Otlen's I'athe.r, 

v/ho h^d b<3en on the eho^e as guq:':'rl, met t>e B-^itlQh nt the 
door, qt the saiafj ti lae ■uy^^rninn: the fi^auily of the approach of 
the enemy. The loors cf the house were einaehed in with the 

butts of the It ijans, John Allen vjas rudely taken out and 

hurried to the shore with his olGthes and shoes on his an;:, 
f\nr{ was not allovred to conplete his toilet ■ijitil he v,-as snug- 
ly on hoard one of their hoats. Four hayonfits were placed 
at his hack and he was ordered to run. Ro stubborn v/as he 
that he declared he would not run one step and they nirht kill 
hir.i as quickly as tlie^y pleased. His ^nfe and four snail 
children v/ere rlriven out of the house wit): no other apprael 
than their nij^ht clothes. The driest girl, nine 3''ears of 
age, begged the soldiers to throv; their clothe?? out of a 
window, but they v?ere denied so much comfort and a bed qui.lt 
was throvn out instead. The v.-lfrt casting an eye upon some 
silver spoons as she made for the door, thrust then into her 
bosojn and these */ere tlie only relic left then of a once happy 
home. The house was set on fire as soon as the fanily wore

on their ".■•etur'': frora the shore- after the f u'e. 

During John /lien's passage to Ne^roort the raarines 
annoyed hin very luuch by picking at t]ie silver buckles on 
his shoes. He asked an officer if that v/^s the treatraent 

a .prisoner v;as to receive from his ^!a jester' s officers. 
After that he was better treated. He was incarcerated 

nearly five months in a loathsome prison vdth about forty 
other prisoners, black as well as white, nostiy in one room, 
some of whom v/ere chained to the floor abdve ^^nd below, in 
filth and a most sick^ming stench. The capture occu.rred 

at about 4:00 a. j;. , June 8, 1779, and they were released 
Cctober "5, 1779, when the British evacuated. Newport. 

John Allen v;as released about a month earlier at thxo 
earnest solicitation of a young lady friend who rv??s attending 
a ball at Newport where Hen. Prescott was a guest. KfiT 

beauty and ladylike deportment won the eye and attention of 
the British general when she sought the first opporti;nity to 
broach the subject of w-«. Allen's imprisonment. Rhe made

set'? right nt defiance, to f^dhere to what is just and honor-

appointed hira successively to t}ie various important offices 
of Legislature ?ind Judge of the f^upreiae and Judicial Court, 
offices which he accepted with node'^'t diffidence, and executed 
the trust with distinguished ability. 

In eariy life he chose the 'one thing needful' and became 
an exemplar^'' rieraber of the J'lethodist church. As he lived, 

90 he died-- o. Ch-^istian. His mien inspired reppect and

be-'^o^-'e. In the sp'^lng of 1816 he unit'^d vnth the f^ix- 

Prlnclple Baptist Church, subsequently v/as ord-'-ined deacon of 
that church and was licensed to preach. He continued in it 

a faithful servant for aboi.'.t five years, Vifh<^n he T^dthdrew 
and on May 30, \Spp, joined the :^irst Baptist Church of I'lorth 
Kingstovn. und'^r r?ev. wii\i.xj. North'ap, and was ordained to the 
v/ork of ministry at the sajae time. 

His field of labor "^.t .fl7st was at school-housen and 
private dwellings, afterwards In meeting-rouses at the irtlllagep 
remot'^ <^-^otz his home. Though yoijng and with but -^ limited

531der Allen, ns he was early called was emphatically a 
self-made nan. He was independent; he gou£rht not to please; 

hut to win; his senuons were plain a)id practical, often .(Oint- 
ed, and his people v^ere made the hc^tter :*'or th'^jr^. 

An educated ninistr/, at the tine he ::iade his debut as 
a preacher of the gospel, was looked upon v/ith .lany quapicions 
by the country pecile. ^''or the want of education he applied 

himself o.ilii.:ently to the stud^'' of the 55criptures and such 
theolotcic^l books as v;ould aid hijQ in liis work of b^vIji^: po-uIs. 
That vvas his mission. That he was succe??ful, hundreds 

wlthi'i his locality i-d 11 testify, and not a few In the Judoaent 
will rise up and call h\n blessed. 

He was nfiVf^.-j? '■leoendent on his people for his sustenancn, 
but like Paul, ministered to his necessities with his own 
hands. Thourh the laborer is «=iaid to be worthy of his hire, 

his labor of lo^^e and toil was seldom, if ever, requited, 
perhaps froir. cboice. He was a public benefactor. He

THOMAS GOULD wae probably adnitted a freenf^n in 1645. 
He wag corporal, 1644; elected to military offices in Newriort 
in 1654. That sane year he was chosen one o:^ the six com- 

missioners of that tovm to transact the affairs of the four 
towns that then comprised the colony. He held this office 

until 1660. Tf'reeraan, 1655, Mar. 2S, 1657 he bou£-ht of 

Koshtosh, Indian riachem. the isl'^id called by the ''iJnslish 
"Gould T'sland". In 1661 he bought a farn of three h'andi'^ed 

aor'^s in 0.uidnes<?ett, in the Narragansett cointr^'' (now J'lorth 
Kingstown). He doubtless built a log cabin and placed a 

man there to fence in his farm and take care of it generally. 
Afte?» a whdle a one-story hou=e was erected ajid additions were 
made until it becane one hundred feet long. Daniel Goiad, J:

The Rhode Island Colony clained the territory from Pancatuck 
River to the Narragansett Bay pr.d so -did the Connecticut 
Colony. For seventy ycirs (Professor Crrftene says) it wag 

in dispute. Thonas Oould and Henry Tibbitts possessed famis

in the forraer, and but ver*' little in the latter. He v/ae a 

patriot an'l. loved his ccuntr?,'- , but he loved ease and comfort
