The compQer of this work became interested in genealogical 
matters in 1884 while assisting in publishing the history of Palmen 
He then commenced gathering material for a genealogy of the 
descendants of his ancestor, Edward Allen of Nantucket The 
work was completed in just ten years, when in 1894 the manuscript 
and data connected with it were lost in the destruction of his store 
by fire* Not discouraged he commenced the work again, and now 
after the lapse of another decade, he presents the completed work 
to those who should be most interested, with the hope that his 
labor has not been entirely in vain. 

Nearty all the descendants of Edward Allen, in the male line at 
least, have a place in this work, save a few families which have thus 
far ehided the most careful search for their record. In the 
Appendix will be found the ancestry of the allied families in the 
author's line. 

In the interest of this genealogy, the author has traveled hun- 
dreds of miles, searched town, county and state records, ransacked 
okl garrets, turned over the musty leaves of many an okl Bible and 
deciphered the crumbling inscriptions of many an ancient 
headstone, and held correspondence with persons in nearly every 
state in the Union, in order to obtain exact data ; and yet, notwith- 
standing all this painstaking there will doubtless be found some 
errors in names and dates, which it is hoped the reader will overlook 
with charity. The author wishes to acknowledge the kindness of 
his many correspondents who have furnished data of their faimilies, 
and especially the courtesy of the several families of Nantucket who 
have offered him the pleasure of examining the invaluable manu- 
script genealogies of the Island, in their possession. 

It was the author's first intention to include in this volume the 
** Genealogy of the Descendants of Samuel Allen of Windsor, Ct," 
and '* The Pioneer Aliens of America," but the material for these 
two works has grown to such proportions that it has been thought 
best to issue them separately in the near future.

This genealogy is arranged according to the plan adopted by the New 
England Historical and Genealogical Register. Thus on p. 33 the figures 
on the left of the page denote the successive numbers of the heads of 
families which will be taken up again ; when a number is omitted before a 
name it indicates that such name will not be mentioned again. Thus 4 V 
Daniel, etc., we find again on p. 26 No. 4, where he is brought up with full 
particulars and a list of his children given. The small exponent figures as on 
p. 26 which follow thus, DanieP Allen (Edward^) show the number of the 
generation from the common ancestor, Edward, the emigrant. 

Abbreviations ^b. for bom; d. for died; m. for married; unm. for 
unmarried ; dau. for daughter. 

Old and New Style. — All dates prior to 1752 are supposed to conform 
to the old style then used.

I. As a Place-Name. 

*' I believe now there is some sacred power and virtue in a name.*'— ^/r/m. 

Havmg consulted nearly all the English, French, German and 
Latin authors who have commented on th«. ilerivation of the name 
Allen, I have, out of their different opinions, come to the following 
conclosion : That the name is from the Aryan root A/a^ meaning 
mountainous, first found as a place-name in the uplands of ancient 
Sarmartra, north of the Caspian sea, where Mt. Alannus was located, 
whence that powerful people, the Alani, derived their name prior to 
the Christian era, who according to Claudius, were descended from 
the Massagetae, who defeated Cyrus the Great 350 B. C. 

It is also significant that equally early we find the Celtic root /f /, 
meaning high, or sometimes white or bright, among the place-names 
of Scotland, where dwelt that original tribe, the Damnii, who were 
found there on Caesar's arrival in 55 B. C, who must have settled 
there at a long anterior date. 

This tribe had a town called Alan or Alwan, at first on a river of 
the sam'e name, which the Romans Latinized into Alauna. There 
are also many ancient place-names in Northern Britain derived from 
^/ which might be added if space permitted. From these facts we 
must conclude that the name Alan — Allen — is of Aryan origin, 
fostered by the Cymrie race and planted by them first as a place- 
name wherever they located, and appears in Britain and Scotland 
long anterior to all other daimers on the island. 

In conclusion we venture to suggest that the name in the Orient 
and Occident came from the same root and was t>ome by peoples 
once kindred, the one remaining long near the cradle land, the 


friend in Paris as to the historical value of Morice, and learned that 

he was considered reliable by Frencfi critics. 

I. Conan, son of Gerenton, Prince of Alban, the 

ancient name of Scotland. He married Darerea, 

daughter of Calphumius and Conchise, a daughter 

of St Martin of Brittany. Calphumius was d the 

most powerful Lords of Scotland, but removed to 

Brittany, where he settled in one of the towns 

governed by his son-in-law. After the death of 

MaximuSy Conan governed Brittany a6 years under 

the dependence of the Romans. But in 409, 

upon the withdrawal of the Roman troops from 

Britain and the general weakness of the empire, 

Conan became independent and defended his 

people against the barbarians. He was a wise and 

able ruler and his country proved a safe refuge 

for thousands of those who fled from Britain, 

who sought protection and were offered homes in 

the waste lands of his province. Conan died in 

42 X after a reign of 37 years. 

n. Solomon succeeded in 4ax, died about 434. 

HI. Grattian (usurper), died about 445. 

IV. Upon the death of Grattian the rule reverted to 

Conan's line in the person of Audren, son of 

Solomon, who died in 464. 

V. Erick, son of Audrexx, began to reign in 464 and 

died in 476. 

VI. Eusebe, the next in succession, died about 490. 

VII. Budic, the younger brother of Erick, was called to 

to the ducal throne. He married Auanmed, 

daughter of Eusic, prince of Wales. He was 

warlike and successful He died about 509. 

VIII. Hoel, the eldest son of Budic, was at the Court of 
King Arthur of Britain, his kinsman, when he was 
call^ home on his father's death to succeed him. 
He drove out his enemies from Amorica and 
reigned in peace. He died about 545. 

IX. Hoel II, son of Hoel I, came to the throne on the 
death of his father. He married Rimo, daughter 
of Malgo, king of Britain. He died in 547. 


X. Alan I, son o( Hoel 11, married the princestt Azenou. 
It is probable that he derived his name from the 
remembrance of his ancestor Audren's snccessful 
conflict with the tribe of Alani» which had invaded 
France. Owing to the unsettled state of his 
province it was some years before he overcame 
his enemies and enjoyed peace. 
XI. Hoel III, son of Alan I, bom in 560, married Pritelle. 
He was able to rule over a united province, and 
died about 61 2. 
XII. Solomon II, son of Hoel II, reigned from 619 till 
about 633. He left no children. 

XIII. Judicael, brother of Solomon II, married the princess 

Maione. He abdicated the throne about 638 and 
retired to a monastery in Gaul and died 658. 

XIV. Alan II, called the Long, son of Judicael, probaUy 

on account of his extended reign. He died 690, 
after a reign of 50 years. 
XV. Gratton, son of Alan the Long, had a troubled reign 

and lost a part of his territory. He died 753. 
XVI. David, son of Jean, son of Geallon, reigned but a 

few years. Time of death not given. 
XVn. Budic, son of David, recovered his depleted territory. 

Time of death not known. 
XVIII. Milian, son of Budic Died about 792. 
XIX. Rivod, brother of Milian. Died 797. 
XX. Argant, a cousin of Rivod, reigned a few years. 
XXI. Jonathan began to reign in 814, the year of 
Charlamange's death. His rule was short. 

XXII. Judual, probably son of Argant, died in 834. 

These who follow, Morice says, descended from Judicael No. 13 
in the line of descent from Conan I. 

XXIII. Nominoe married Aryontael and ruled from 830 to 

XXIV. Euspae, son of Nominoe. He reigned from 85 1 to 

XXV. Solomon III, cousin of Euspae and son of Rivallon, 

brother of Nominoe, reigned from 857 to 874. 










Pasqatten, grandaon of Nominoe and nephew of 
Sdomont died about 887. 

Alan III, called the Great, brother of Pasquiten, 
reigned from 887 to 907. He commenced as 
Count of Vannes and succeeded as King of Brittany. 
He was recognized as ruler by the whole nation. 
He married Orgain and left children, Ridault, 
Count of Vannes, Derrien, Seignior of Elven, 
Pasquiten, Guereea, Budic, Heme, and a daughter 
who married Malvedor, Count of Poher, through 
whom the line was continued. ''Alan died, 
covered with glory and merit. The services which 
he rendered his country acquired him the name of 

Alan IV, grandson of Alan HI, came to the throne soon 
after the death of his grandfather. He was com- 
pelled to gain allegiance with the Norman Duke 
and became one of the chief rulers of the state. 
He died in 952. 

Hoel, son of Alan IV, died in 980. 

Gurich, brother of the preceding Hoel, succeeded 
him. He left a son, Alan. He died in 987. 

Geoffrey was the next Duke of Brittany. He was 
the son of Conan, son of Sok>mon III, son of 
Gurvant, who was cousin of Solomon III, and who 
had married his niece, the daughter of Euspae, so 
was in the line of descent from Conan I, the first 
king of Brittany. In 1008 he married Hadwisa, 
daughter of Richard the Fearless, Duke of 
Normandy. Date ot his death not given. 

Alan VI, called Rubeiz, son of Geoffry. He married 
Bertha, daughter of Odan, Count of Charters. 
He died of poison while beseiging the Castle of 

Conan, son of Alan V, died in 1066 and left no issue. 

Hoel V, Count of Camonville, married Havoise, sister 
of the forgoing Conan, by which alliance he be- 
came Duke of Brittany in xo66 and died in X084. 


XXXV. Alan VttFergeant, son of Hoel V. ind Havoise, be- 
came Duke of Brittany in 1084. He equaled his far- 
famed second cousin and namesake who aided 
William in his conquest of England, for when he be- 
came Duke of Brittany he refused to do homage 
to WiUiam, and maintained his ground so stoutly 
as to cause WiUiam to withdraw from his invasion 
of Brittany and sign articles of peace, among which 
was one granting the marriage of the King's 
daughter, Constance, to Alan in io86. She died 
X090, leaving no issue. He m. (a) in 1093, 
Ermengarde, daughter of Faulke, Earl of Anjou. 
Allan died in 1119. 
XXXVL Conan III, son of Alan VI and Ermengarde, became 

Duke of Brittany in 1112. He married Mathilde, 
daughter of King Henry I, of England. Their 
daughter Bertha married Abm LeNoir, the fburth 
Earl of Richmond, in whose persons were again 
united the two branches of the ducal house of 
Geofrey of Brittany. 

The Alans of Richmond and Brittany. 

We have traced the ducal succession of the Alans of Brittany past 
the Norman conquest of England, and now we will glance briefly at 
the union of the two Alan houses of Richmond and Brittany, as has 
just been noted above. 

Alan I, Fergeant, the first Earl of Richmond, England, was the son 
of Eudo, Count of Panthievre, and grandson of Geoffrey I, Duke of 
Brittany. Some historians, including Hume, have confounded him 
with Abn VI, Fergeant, son of Hoel V, Duke of Brittany, a very 
palpable error. These two Alans were second cousins. 

Alan I, Fergeant, so-caOed because of his red hair, was bom in 
Brittany before loj^. Styled Count of Brittany, but not Duke, 
X066. Commander of the Second Division of the Norman army 
under William at the battle of Hastings, Oct. 1066 ; created Lord 
of Croftone and Fumtebri in Hants; created Lord of Richmond 
and all Earl Edwin's lands in Yorkshire 1069. Styled Earl of Rich- 
mond from his castle. He died 1089 without issue. 


"The noble castle of Richmond which he reared long remained 
at a link between the Earldom and the Breton Dukedom." *'This 
castle still remains built with additions by successive Earls as one 
of the finest Norman buildings of the kingdom.'* 

The success of William at the decisive battle of Hastings was 
largely due to the bravery and strategy oi Alan, who was commander 
of the left wing of the army, and he was fully rewarded by the 
conqueror by vast gifts of lands, so that he became, next to the 
King, the richest person in England. Alan I, Fergeant, had* four 
brothers, Alan Niger, Stephen, Rebokl Lord of Widdlehams, and 

Alan II, Niger, brother of Alan I, Earl of Richmond, etc., succeeded 
as second Earl of Richmond 1089. Died 1104. Stephen, brother 
of Alan II, styled as Count of Brittany ixoi, was the third Earl of 
Richmond 1x04, died xx37. 

Ahn III, Niger, second son of Stephen, succeeded as fourth Earl 
of Richmond 1x37, married Bertha, daughter of Conan III, Duke 
of Brittany, about X138. He died 1146. By this marriage the two 
branches of the house of Duke Geoffrey were united, and the Earl- 
dom of Richmond and the Duchy of Brittany became vested in one 

Conan IV, son of Alan III, Earl of Richmond, was Duke and Count 
of Brittany, bom before X13S, succeeded as fifth Earl of Richmond 
XX46, and Duke of Brittany 1x56, married Margaret, sister of Mal- 
chom IV, King of Scothnd i i6o. He died 1x71. 

Constance, daughter of Conan IV, bom 1 163, succeeded in 1 1 66 to 
her title as Countess of Richmond and Duchess and Countess of 
Brittany, married Geoffrey, fourth son of Henry II, King of England. 
She died X20x. 

Arthur de Brittany, son of Geoffrey and Constance, was made Earl 
of Richmoiid xsoo, unmarried. Was killed April, 1203. With him 
closed the Alan line of the Earls of Richmond. 

It may be added in this connection that Alan la Zouche, third 
son of Geoffrey, count of Porhoet, established one of the consider- 
able houses of England in the x 2 th century, whose descendants were 
living in the X7th century. 

Further descendants of the Ducal house of Brittany : Alan, Count 
of Leon in 1279; Alan le Roux, Count of Penthrevre, died 1095 ; 


Alan, Count of PenthrevrCy etc., died 1312; Alan of Avangom, 
died 1265 ; Alan, count of Gavre, died 1481. 

Alan I, third son of Eudo, Count of Porboet, was the first Count 
of Rohen, died 1118. The following counts succeeded who bore 
the name of Alan : 

Alan II, died 11 64; Alan III, died 1195 ; Alan IV, died 1205 ; 
Alan V, died 1232; Alan VI, died 1303; Alan VII, died 1352; 
Alan VIII, died 1429 ; Alan IX, married Margaret, daughter of 
Jean IV, Duke of Brittany, and died 1462. Alan, sumamed Cognard, 
Count of Camonville, died 1058. Alan de Leshardrieux was bishop 
of Tregnier in 1267. Alan de Brue was bishop of Tregnier in 
1284. Alan de Gal wias bishop of Quimper about 1340. Alan was 
bishop of Camonville in 1344. Alan of Litte was bishop of 
Ausserre in 1132. Alan De L'Isle, was a leametl divine of the 
University of Paris, died 1294. Alan (Charter) bom 1386, was sec- 
retary 16 Charles III, king of France. It may be added that the 
Alans of Brittany who have Count Geoffry as an ancestor, trace their 
line also through the Norman dukes, Rehard the Fearless, WiUam 
Langswoard, Rolfe, the founder of the Dukedom of Normandy, to 
his Either, Roquwakl, earl of Marei in Norway, about 850 A. D. 

Alans m England and Scotland. 

As has been noted, the Alan name was first found in Britain, then 
early transferred to Brittany, where it was nourished and honored 
for centuries, then brought back to the British isle in the person of 
Ahn Fergeant, the General and companion of the conqueror, and 
others of his kin and name. A cardul research fails to find any 
Alan in Britain at this time save of Breton stock. 

Miss Yonge says in her history of Christian names that one of 
these Alans k)cated in Scotland, there married an heiress whose 
grandson, Ahn, married Eva, the daughter of Lord of Tippermuir, 
and became High Steward of Scotland, and was both the progenitor 
of the race of Stewart and the original of the hosts of Alans and 
Aliens, who have ever since filled Scotland. A descendant of this 
Alan came to the throne of Scotland in the person of Robert the 
Steward in 13x8. Another Alan was the second Baron of AUerdale 
in XX 54. Alan of Tewkesbury was a noted writer of the X2th 
century, who died x2ox. Alan of Beccles was the Bishop's secre- 


taiy 12x8 to 1236; died 1240. Alan Bishop of Cathoos was 
Chancellor of Scotland in 129 1. An Alan was made Abbott of the 
celebrated Battle Abbey, Mar. 28, 1324. Alan of Lynn, educated 
at Cambridge, became a celebrated preacher and author, 1424. 

III. Allen Fust Used as a Surname. 

Surnames were first used in France about the year 1000 A. D., 
and in England about 1066. While there is little doubt that a ma- 
jority of the Allen families of England and Scotland have descended 
from the Alans of Brittany who settled in the British isle, there were 
probably some next of kin who at first took the personal name of Alan 
who later adopted it as a surname, so we do not wish to be under- 
stood as assuming that all who now bear the name of Allen are of 
ducal extraction, for that is now a difficult matter to determine. The 
original name Alan has passed through many changes in spelling, 
though the form mostly in use is that of Allen since the X3th century. 

One of the early members of the family who boasted a surname 
was Henry Allen, Lord of Buckenhall, in Staffordshire in 1272. He 
was ancestor to branches spelling their name Allen, Allyn, Alleyn, 
and AUeyne. Robert Henry Allen, High Sheriff of Co. Devon in 
1 85 1, traced his descent in a direct line from him. John Allyn, a 
canon of Windsor, was bom in 1373 ; William Allen, bom 1532, was 
made a Cardinal in 1587 ; Henry Allen was Bailiff of Yarmouth 1271, 
William Allen, same in 1270-5 ; Johannas Allen, M. P., from Yar- 
mouth 13x4. The earliest names only are given. An English writer 
in 1851 says there were then 30,000 Allen surnames in the country, 
showing how numerous the name had become, and were quite evenly 
distributed through 32 counties. 

Aliens in London. 

As our Edward Alien came from London, whose genealogy is given 
at length in this volume, it may be of interest to leara something of 
the Aliens of that city, although I have been unable to connect him 
with any family there. Allen families have been numerous there 
from early times, many of whom have held the highest positions. It 
is a little singulaf that the very first Allen whom we find mentioned in 
London is Pyers Alleyn, who was Lord Mayor of that city in 1247, 


followed by Sir John AOen in 1521 to 1535, Sir WiUiam Allen in 
1 57 19 Sir Thomas Allen in i66o. The Dake Roger, son of Roger 
Alan, was Sheriff of London in 1173, Thomas Allen in 14 14, John 
Allen in 1471, John Allen in 1518, William Allen in 1563, Thomas 
Allen in 1654. There are also many Aliens found in the incorporated 
companies of London from the X2th century onward whose names 
we have not the space to give. The earliest will which I find in 
London was made by Geoffrey Aleyn, dated June 24, 1342, who 
mentions wife Matilda, sons Alon, Robert and William, and daughters 
Isabella, Margery, Leticia and Agnes. Many other early wills are 
omitted here. 

In making a careful search through the Parish Registers of Lon- 
don from 1538 to 1807, 1 found 1467 persons by the name of Allen, 
26 of whom bore the name of Edward ; the names of Joseph, Robert, 
Benjamin and Ebenezer are also very frequent, all of which have 
freely appeared in the American line of our family. 

From the list of Edward Aliens of London I have selected the 
following, either of whom might have been the father of our 
Edward of Nantucket, who must have been bom about 1670, either 
just before or lOon after, via : 

Edward AUen and Mary Smith, m. Nov. 28, 1640. 

Edward Allen and Elizabeth <— , m. Aug. 22, 1642. 

Edward Allen and Elizabeth England, m. April 22, 1647. 

Edward Allen and Judith Bull, m. April 8, 1670. They had a 
daughter, Grace, who d. Feb. x6, 1673. 

Edward and Saray Allen had a son John, b. Aug. 5, 1667. 

An Edward AUen was buried July 17, 1724. 
Edward Allen of Nantucket had a cousin, Benjamin Allen, living 
in London in 17 17, and I find in a London Parish Register a 
Benjamin Allen, who died there Feb. 20, 1721. The foregoing are 
given as possible clues to some future searcher for traces of our 

Alien Coats of Arms. 

** It was early in the 13th century that Heraldry became possessed 
of a regtthr system and acquired a language of its own which still 
survives." ** Arms,** so called because they were originally borne 
upon the shield of the owner, subsequently became known as 
* Coats of Arms,' from the fashion which prevailed of embroider- 


ing them upon the sarcoat or long robe which was worn over the 
armonr/' At first the right to bear arms was only given to knights 
who had served in the field, but later the honor was bestowed either 
for gallant conduct in war or for meritorious service in civil affairs, 
but has always been considered as a mark of special distinction. 

From the earliest days of heraldry the Aliens have been gener- 
ously honored by the bestowment of coats of arms. No less than 
saty-two Allen families have been thus distinguished, being found in 
nearly every county of England and Scotland, showing the Allen 
family has deserved well of its country for the last six centuries at 
least Notwithstanding the foregoing, albw the writer to hope that 
no one having the Allen name will assume the right to use crests or 
armorial bearings without the most positive evidence to sustain him 
in so doing, simply because someone having his own name has 
been thus honored in the distant past. 

Here we bring to a close our rapid survey of the rise and develop- 
ment of the Allen family in Brittany and England during more than 
fifteen centuries. It is a history of which no family need be 
ashamed, deriving its lines of lineage from British, Roman, Breton, 
Norman and French stock, and allied with the princely houses of 
Normandy, Angou, France, Scotland and England, while Kings, 
Dukes, Lords, Earls, Counts and Knights are found within its ranks. 
Doughty warriors in the crusades and armed knights for home 
defence sustain the prestige of the name. Later on, when the arts 
of peace begin their benign rule the family is not lacking in men 
who rise as leaders in learning the arts and sciences. Ever restive 
under restraint in early times, the rule still obtains when the days of 
reformation come, for we find the family giving its educated sons to 
swell the non-conformist ranks, or furnishing recruits to people 
New England with men who counted liberty of conscience above 
an things else. 

This inspiring background of ancestry is shared by the great hosts 
of Aliens, both in England and America among all the many 
divergent lines, but it should not cause a single member to rest con- 
tent with ancestral laurels, but rather prove an incentive for him to 
strive to keep alive the prestige of the name. Some of the sources

Descendants of Edward Allen. 

The emigrant from London, England, who setded on Nantucket 

Uand, Matt., about 1690. 

Our sire with island acres was content, 
Hb sons are foond all o'er a continenL 

Our ancestor, Edward AUen, left London, England, for America 
about 1690. On his way thither the vessel in which he embarked was 
captured by pirates, a common occurrence in those times ; what be* 
came of the others is not known, but he managed to escape while 
the vessel was oil Portsmouth, N. H., and soon made his way to 
Nantucket, Mass., which island had been settled some thirty years 

How he came to make Nantucket his home is a matter of conjee, 
ture ; but it may be presumed that as the island people were much 
given to a sea-faring life, some of them may have been at Portsmouth 
at the time of the advent of our young emigrant and probably ex- 
tended an invitation to him to locate with them. 

Having been captured by pirates,* it is fair to presume, he had 
little left him with which to start life ; but this did not deter him 
from taking a wife in due time after becoming a citizen of the in- 
suhr republic. He was probably married to Ann Coleman of Nan- 
tucket sometime in 1693, and remained on the island untfl his death. 
Soon after marriage he built a house on the Plains west of Clark's 
Cove, some three miles out of the present town, where he lived many 
years. In 1891 I was shown the site of the okl house by William 
S. Allen, which is indicated now by a slight depression and a few 
pieces of brick. The original doorstone of this house was moved in 

*The tradition thai Edward Alka cane from Loadoo and was captured by piiatea, has been hand- 
ed down directly f-'nn the older members of the family, and is still preserved in the bmilics 
on the, so there is little doubt of iu correctness. 


1836 by Shubael Allen to form the dooretone of his house on Milk 
street, since known as the Isaiah Folger place. The stone is un- 
dressed, some three feet square, with a surface worn smooth by the 
feet of seven generations. 

.From the Town Records of Nantucket I have gleaned these 
extracts concerning Edward Allen : The first mention of his name 
which I find is in the record of a town meeting held the 17th of the 
1 2th month, 1706, when he was chosen one of the jurors to attend 
the Court Sessions of Common Pleas to be held the 35th of ist 
month, 1707. 

At a town meeting held 39th of ist month, 1707, Edward Allen 
was chosen constable. 

At a town meeting held ssth of s^h month, 1709, Edward Allen 
was chosen one of a committee to inspect every man*s meadow's on 
the island and where they find any man short in their proportion 
they have hereby power to amend every such man's share with the 
common meadows as far as it will go, to the best of their 

At a town meeting held sSth of 1st month, 1710, Edward Allen 
was 'chosen a juror with six others to attend next court ensuing to be 
held 38th of ad month, 1710. 

At town meeting held aoth of ist month, 17x3, Eklward Allen was 
chosen one of the trustees of the Island. 

At town meeting held 24th of ist month, 17 14, Edward Allen 
was chosen one of the jurors. 

At the same meeting he was chosen one of the trustees of 

At town meeting held 33d of xst month, 171 5, Edward Allen was 
chosen one of the grand jurors for the ensuing year. 

At same meeting he was chosen one of a committee to impound 
any hogs found on the commons after the time apix>inted. 

At town meeting held 33d day of ist month, 1719, Edward Allen 
was chosen one of the grand jurors for the year ensuing. 

From Nantucket Co. Record of Deeds is copied the following : 

" Be it known unto all men by these presents thnt I, Daniel

In 171 X Edward Allen, with sx others, gave a quit claim deed 
of the horse commons which they had purchased of the Indians to 
the inhabitants of the Island for their use. 

Feb. X9, 17231 Edward and Ann Allen had a deed of 10 acres 
of land confirmed to them by arbitration which had been in dispute, 
which had belonged to Thomas Coleman and given by him to his 

son Tobias. 

There are many records of deeds of land to Edward and Ann 
Allen, and between X735 and 1740 there are records of bnd deeded 
by them, apparently near Main street in the town to each of their 
nine children. From these records it would appear that in their 
declining years they moved into toiini and probably lived with their 
son Ebenezer. My attention was called to this fact by the kindness 


of Prof. Henry Mitchell of Naatucket, who furnished me with 
numerous extracts from the Co. records. In 171 7 Benjamin 
Allen of London, cousin of our Edward, sent him a clock made in 
London by W. Torolinson. This clock is a tall one, with brass 
works, and is still in good running order. It has remained in some 
branch of the family since the death of Edward. It is now in the 
possession of Mrs. Eben W. Alien of Nantucket. It will go to 
Robert M. Stratton of San Francisco. He is descended from 
Rachel, d. of Edward Allen, who m. Thomas Starbuck. Edward 
Allen, I learned from Mr. Wm. C. Folger of Nantucket, was a man 
of intelligence and pleasant address, one popuhr with his felk>w 
townsmen. He deserves well of his posterity, for he reared nine 
children, eight of whom manied and in turn raised large families ; 
one was lost at sea, whaling, at the age of twenty-five. As has been 
remarked, Edward Allen came to Nantucket after it had been settled 
by the whites some 30 years ; at this time it contained about 700 
whites. The Indians had been christianized and were peaceful neigh- 
bors ; all the lands occupied by the whites had been paid for and there 
seems never to have arisen any cause for serious dispute. The 
climate was mild, the land productive and the inhabitants pro8i)er- 
ous, as prosperity was counted in those days of limited needs, and ' 
our ancestor, as well as his neighbors, passed his days in content- 
ment, and when his pilgrimage was over, was laid to rest in the 
ancient burial ground near Maxcy's Pond, with grave unmarked by 
slab, as were those who had preceded him.

1726; (4), Freelone, b. 1727; (5), David, b. 1730.

of Nathan and Mercy Skiff of Chilmark, M. V., bom Sept. 3, 1701. 
He died April 7, 1776 ; she d. April 24, 1781. 

From notes given me by Prof. Mitchell, I infer that Nathaniel 
Allen's house was located on the south side of Main street near 
Trader's Lane and about ^ mile westward from the Pacific Bank. 
In a deed dated Feb. 9, 1735, by which his father and mother gave 
him right to certain commons, Nathaniel is designated as a mariner, 
and from other circumstances we infer he was the master of a vessel ; 
and as his first wife was from Newburyport, he probably sailed to 
that port in his reguhr coasting trips ; and for a similar reason he 
doubtless found his second wife on Martha's Vineyard, for the storms 
often drove the vessels into Vineyard Haven for shelter when the 
occasion was utilized in forming acquaintances, and often resulted in 
transferring some of the fair maidens of the Vineyard to Nantucket 
homes. Nathaniel Allen and his first wife were Friends ; the record 
of their marriage and of their two children is found in the books of 
the Friends' meeting at Nantucket. Miss Gaskel * was a descendent 
of Cassandra Southwick, of whom Whittier has written in one of 
his most beautiful poems. 

Nathaniel's second marriage was out of " meeting " and he was 
then dropped from membership, but his two children remained 
within the fold of the Friends. His second wifef was descended 
from Gov. Carver, the Skiffs, the Chipmans and from John Tilley 
and John Hawbnd of the Mayflower. It is supposed that he spent 
the best part of his life following the sea, as we find be had little to 
do in connection with affairs at home.

we often find him referred to on the town records as chosen to act 
as a juror, and in X746 was elected constable of the Island. In the 
Registry of Deeds at Taunton we find recorded in Book 45, p. 208, 
that Sylvanus Allen of Sherbom (Nantucket) removed to Dartmouth 
where he bought real estate for ^^257, dated 27th of ist month, 
X76X, and soon after he 'bought another lot of land for ^500. He 
probably resided in that tx>rtion of Dartmouth which was established 
as New Bedford in 1 787. He bestowed land at different times upon 
his several children.

The tradition given me by Mr. Folger of Nan-

son and a grandson who bore his name, the last of 
whom was the master of a vessel and died in 
MadagascxLr in 1836 while on. a voyage there. I 
have been unable after much' searching to gain 
further trace of his family. 

V. Eunice, intention of marriage with Joshua Doane of

Dartmouth, published Nov. xi, 1773. He d. about 
1793; she d. Oct xo, X809. In X784 he sold 
' ''26 acres of land, which was his father's home- 
stead near the Bay where Fort Phoenix stands." In 
X785 he sold to his brother-in-law, Elnathan 
Eldridge, a part of the estate which his father gave 
him in his last will and testament In X784 he 
bought X74 acres of land near the line of Freetown 
for ;^2io. In Probate Records, book 32, page 
207, at Taunton we find entered the inventory of 
the estate of Jethro Allen of New Bedford, taken 
May 7, X793, amounting to jC^SSf X9S» sd. Sworn 
to by Eunice Allen. It would seem that the estate 
viTzs not settled till Oct 22, x8o2, when the estate 
was finally divided, one-third going to the widow, 
Eunice Allen, and the balance equally to the four 
chiklren: eldest son, Reuben; eldest daughter, 
Jemima, u-ife of Ansel Blossom ; youngest daughter, 
Clarissa, wife of William Nye; youngest son, 
William. In New Bedford Records I find intentions 
of marriage between Ansel Blossom and Jemima 
AUen published June 4, x8o2, and intentions of 
marriage betM-een William Nye and Clarissa Allen, 
published July 24, x8o2, and that William, son of 
Jethro Allen, deceased, died at New York, Septem- 
ber, 1798.

The tradition is preserved in the family that Edmund Heath, the 
father of Ebenezer's .wif e, belonged to a titled and wealthy family in 
Engkmd, and being the youngest,*was sent to this country in charge 
of Capt. Richard Coffin ; in the same vessel was Catherine Sylvan, a 
pretty French girl whom the captain had found in France, and 
hired as a servant l*he acquaintance thus formed on shipboard 
between the young people ripened into love and in due time after 
landing at Nantucket they were married. Many years afterward a 
letter was received by the family, asking for heirs to the Heath 
estate in England, but the matter was never followed up, so the 
family never profited by the information, and doubtless lost a large

from Ix>ndon 1767, unm. Ax the time he was 
in London the method of procuring recruits for 
military ser\'ice by means of the press gang was 
in vogue, and he was warned to be on his guard. 









As he was walking along the wharf one day, an 
officer approached him and asked him to what 
ship he belonged. He replied he did not belong to 
any ship, when the officer invited him to bear him 
company. He saw in a moment that he was in a 
trapi but his quick wit saved him. Obsen-ing a 
brig nearby in the stream and that the sailors were 
aloft at work, he called out ** Brig ahoy ! when you 
get that topmast in end and fudded, send a boat for 
me." " Why," says the British officer, " I thought 
you said you were not the master of a ship. 
** Well," says our Yankee, " don't you see it is a 
brig, not a ship." The officer accepted the expla- 
nation as a pleasant joke and left young Tristram 
master of the situation.

is said to have died at Portsmouth or Newport, R. I., about 1769, 
when her youngest child was but two years old. As will be seen 
from the above record, they married at a very early age, Joseph 
lacking four months of being 17 years of age while his bride had 
passed that point His trade was that of a cooper, which gave him 
ample employment He lived on Nantucket Island until about 1766 
or 7, when he removed to Newport, R. I., where his youngest child 
was bom. The following condensed transcript speaks for itself:

Joseph Allen was greatly attached to his wife, and did not marry a 
second time. His sons, Joseph and Robert, were taken into the 
family of their uncle, Capt Oliver Allen of Rochester, Mass., by 

*For pil ii nn M* Apptadis D. 


whom they were brought up. Joseph Senior, it is thought remained 
in Newport, as there was a Joseph there in the time o( the Ke\'olu- 
tionary War, and the family tradition is that he served in the war. 
There were two Joseph Aliens in the service and probably he was 
one of them. He was an expert horseman, and greatly enjoyed the 
turf.' At one time he was the owner of a mare which had beat all 
records then known. On a certain day when he was to engage in a 
race, his opponents sought to win by a trigk ; a ditch was dug across 
the way partly filled with boughs and loosely covered with earth, so 
of course when he reached this ix>int his mare partially stumbled ; he 
was so vexed by the trick that he struck his animal a severe blow, 
which was so unusual that she sprung to her feet nerved to the ut- 
most and won the race. In his declining years he came to. live with 
his son Robert in Shutesbury, Mass., where he died, and where his 
grave is still to be seen in the rear of the schoolhouse at the old 
Centre, marked by a shb of slate, well preserved. His three daugh* 
ters married and resided in Nantucket

14. Capt Olivers Allen, (Nathaniel* Edward' )• I have been 
uiuble to find any record of his birth, but it is doubtless earlier than 
the place assigned him in this genealogy, as we find him to be a ship 
master, and buying real estate as early as X760 in Rochester, Mass., 
at the port of Mattepossett, from which his vessel sailed. He mar- 
ried Joanim (surname unknown). He removed from Rochester to 
Hardwick, Mass., about 1777, where he bought a farm, and where 
during the war he served on a committee of correspondence. In 
X 7 84 he sold his estate in Hardwick and removed to Shutesbur)', 
Mass., where he bought a farm just east of the Centre, where he kept 
the first tavern in the town. The farm is now owned by Dea. 
Briggs. In X7S6 he was elected one of the selectmen of the town. 
On the breaking up of the Shay's rebellion, one of Shay's men 


called at Capt Allen's bouse for protection from officers who were 
on his track. Mrs. Allen told him to doff the soldier coat and don 
some of her husband's apparel and go to work on the wood pile in 
the yard ; he did so, and shortly after the officers called, but seeing 
no one but the busy worker at the wood pile, concluded their man was 
not there, so the poor fellow escaped through a woman's wit. Capt 
Allen died in the early part of 1 792, as we found on the Probate 
Records at Northampton, bearing date of Mar. 6, 1792, that Joanna 
Allen was granted power of administration on estate of her late hus- 
band. The widow, Joanna Allen, married for her second husband, 
Dec. 6, 180X, Perez Clark of New Salem, Mass.; as the records of 
New Salem have been lost by fire, have been unable to learn the date 
of her death. However, we find in Probate Records at Greenfield 
that Perez Clark made his will Oct. 7, x8ii, and on June a, 181 2, 
his widow, Joanna Clark, gave bond as one of the administrators. 
The will devises the use of one-third of real and personal estate to his 
wife, Joanna Clark ; balance of estate to be divided between oMest 
son Samuel, sons Stephen, Nathan, Perez, and youngest son Elisha; 
eldest daughter Dolly ; Deborah, heir of Polly Taylor, Eunice Curtis, 
and youngest daughter, Susan Stacy. 

Joanna Cbrk was living at New Salem as late as April 15, 1S24, 
for on that date she sells land there to Perez Clark, which was willed 
to her by her late husband.

for he never left the island but once and that was for a short visit to 
the adjoining island of Tuckemuck. It is said of him that he 
attended the annual sheep shearing on Sheeppen Hill every year of 
his long life of 86 years ; of course he was carried in arms the first 
two years. As tong as sheep raising was continued on the isbnd the 
annual sheep shearing was a great event, when the young and old of 
. both sexes would gather and enjoy a grand picnic. Daniel was a 
fanner and a large sheep owner ; his farm was k)cated some three- 
fourths of a mile west of the town, where he entertained much com- 
pany. In his day he was one of the leading men in town affairs and 
respected by alL

27. Dr. Joseph4 Allen, (Joseph3, Nathaniel', Edward') 1 b. X764 
at Nantucket, Mass.; m. about 1800 Lucretia Smead, b. Oct. X2, 
1776. She was the daughter of Ebenezer and Mary (Stebbins) 
Smead, and she the daughter of Joseph Stebbins of Deerfield. Dr. 
Allen d. at BucUand, Mass., Oct. 23, x823. His wife d. September, 
1839. Of Dr. Allen's early life little has been preserved, save that 
his mother died when he was about six years of age and he was 
taken into the family of his uncle, Capt. Oliver AUen, who had 
retired from a seafaring life at Rochester, Mass., to Hardwick. It 
» thought that he was afforded broader facilities for education » 
than could have been gained at the common school, but of that 
nutter we are uncertain. It is known that he studied medicine 
with Dr. Kitteridge of Franklin Co., Mass., and that he commenced 
the practice of medicine and surgery in the town of Buckland, Mass., 
whtte he bought a farm OcL 25, X797, where he became noted for 
his skill and success. To give a better idea of the man we quote 
from one who knew him as a boy and who wrote of him in after 
years : '* Prominent among my early recollections is the old family 
physician. His form stout, short, compact, straight as an. arrow, 
always encased in two overcoats in winter and one in summer, in 
each of which was a socket for his immense umbrella. His iace 
square, laughter-loving, though somewhat furrowed by age and care, 
shaded by a broad-brimmed hat; seated on his large bald-faced 
sorrell, with a slow, springy trot on his professional rounds, he looked 
the very embodiment of medical science. Everybody said he was a 
learned and skillful physician and surgeon, and they firmly believed 


what they said. He had an extensive ride and no competition, and 
who in all that valley would not trust his very life in his hands? He 
was never in a hurry and I never saw him in a carriage of any kind. 
He always rode horseback, and at the same easy gait He loved 
fun, and in the exercise of that he made me fear him, for he 
threatened to bleed me and how I did hate him. But when I was 
sick and the dreaded doctor was called he looked and spoke kindly 
and measured out some *^ doctor's stuff " from his capacious saddle- 
bags and went away. Soon after that word came that the Doctor 
was very sick of fever. How every countenance fell; even my 
sympathies were aroused in his behalf. But couldn't he who had 
cured so many other folks cure himself? I thought so. But the 
doctor died. The whole town was filled with gloom. I went with 
my father to the funeral, which was held in the church. A large 
assembly was gathered there. The coffin was placed on a table in 
the broad aisle, and at the ctose of the services, when the audience 
passed around to take a last look at the remains, my father lifted me 
up and through the glass I saw the rigid features of the old family 
physician now sealed in death. It was a mournful, solemn assembly. 
They had come together to lay away in the old cemetery a benevo- 
lent, kind-hearted, Christian man ; a member of the church, one 
who often prayed with and for his patients. Would or could his place 
ever be filled?"

m. X786, Rhoda Cady,* b. in Shutesbury, Mass., March 16, 1765. 
He died in Wallingford, Vt, May 15, 1856; she d. there May 23, 
1850. As before stated, Robert Allen was bom in Newport, R. I., 
and his mother dying when he was about three years old he was 
brought up in the family of his uncle, Capt Oliver AUen of Hard- 
wick and later of Shutesbury, Mass. He married young and com- 
menced life on a farm in Shutesbury, later known as the White 
place, just west of the Centre, where his family of eight children 

•Sw Afiptndis E lor Imt ptdigfw. 


were bom. In 1806 he removed with his family to East Walling- 
fordy Vt, then just being settled. There he purchased a farm on 
which a log house had been erected, and cleared up a farm on which 
he spent his remaining days, and which continued in the possession 
of one of his descendants till 1897. Neighbors were few and far 
apart at first, but in a few years new settlers came and let sunshine 
into the hillsides by the felling of timber and the founding of new 
homes. A meeting-house was erected there in 1828, iihich was 
occupied by the Congregational and Baptist societies until 1856. 
Robert Allen and family were members of the Baptist church there* 
The old church was taken down many years ago. For many years 
Robert Allen followed the business of buying cattle and driving them 
to Brighton market ; he was a man of rare good judgment and quite 
successful in the business. His wife was totally blind from about 
1800 to 1830, at which time she regained her sight and retained it 
untfl her death. In her youth she is said to have been remarkably 
beautiful, the belle of the town of Shutesbury, but she was a woman 
of great endurance and used to recount with pride to her children 
how she and her sisters looked after the farm while her father and 
three brothers were away in the Revolutionary War.

He removed from Shutesbury, Mass., with his father, in February, 
i8o6» and remained on the old homestead for 73 yeara, or until his 
death. Soon after his removal to Wallingford he taught school for 
several years, receiving five dollars per month the first year, and ten 
dollars per month for the second year. He excelled in mathe- 
matics, and could solve problems which baffled all the other 
''Masters" in those parts. The salary for teaching proved in- 
adequate, so he had to relinquish that calling and give his time to 
his trade of shoemaking in order to support his young family. He 
retained his mental and physical faculties in a remarkable degree 
until the close of his long life. Himself and nearly all his family 
were members of the Baptist church at East Wallingford, Vt

land. Her father was a Revolutionary soldier. She d. Sept xs,

Oct 23, X852. Dea. Allen settled near his father on what was 
known as Sugar Hill, in the east part of Wallingford, and com- 
menced life in a log cabin. He reared a large family on the old 














hnn and in time erected a comfortable house and accumulated a 
competency for old age. In 1828 a union chnrch was built on his 
farm, occupied in common by the Baptists and Congregational* 
ists ; this church was dedicated in January, 1829, and Oliver Allen 
and Isham White were chosen the deacons of the Baptist society, 
which position they retained until about 1850, when on their leav* 
ing town Thomas York and Linus F. Holton were chosen to succeed 
them. The first Baptist minister was Rev. Artemas Arnold, followed 
in order by Revs. Horace F. Davis, S. B. Thompson, Sanders, 
Joseph Packard, Small, Daniel Packer, and Lyon. Rev. Stephen 
Martindale, the settled pastor of Wallingford viUage, had charge of 
the Congregational society there until his death, when he was suc- 
ceeded by Rev. Mr. Sanders. Elias Kent was the only deacon who 
officiated for this society. 

Owing to the death or removal of many of the people from 
''The Hjn," services were discontinued after 1856 and the old 
church, which had served its purpose in former days, was allowed to 
go to decay and at last was torn down. Fifty years ago the de- 
scendants of Robert Allen, who had settled on *' The Hill," might 
have been counted by the score, and at one time four generations of 
the family were attendants at the church ; but at present only two 
families remain, one of them on the old Allen ho m estead, which has 
remained in the family for nearly a century. 

Dea. Allen removed to Rutland, Vt, soon after 2850, where he 
resided at the time of his death.

19029 at the summer cottage of bis son in the Adirondacks« In 
the language of one who is well qualified to write of him, I give 
the following concerning the life and work of Rufus C. Allen : ** He 
was bom in Wallingford, Vt., and resided many years on the old 
Allen homestead. His father was both shoemaker and farmer, and 
the subject of this sketch followed both avocations. He was thirsty 
for knowledge, but could gratify it only in the district school. In 
young manhood he achieved success as a teacher in his vicinity. 
His warm heart and bter reading developed a keen, inteOigent and 
patriotic interest in public questions, and the temperance and anti- 
slavery reforms have had his earnest support. The true Vermont spirit 
lives in him. His integrity, good judgment and consistent Christian 
character are so marked that though he has never sought office in 
church or state, it has been repeatedly thrust upon him in both 
relations. Such duties have been uniformly discharged with credit 
to himself and satisfaction to others. Converted in early life, he 
united with the Baptist church at seventeen years of age, and has 
always been an active worker. Not only in Vermont where he and 
his wife sang together in church for 35 years and toiled variously, 
but with large churches of city life in Elizabeth and Brooklyn his 
zeal and ability have made him prominent where his services have 
been sought for positions of trust or cooperation. The esteem in 
which he is held was lately shown in connection with his 77th 
birUiday, when friends, including some of the most prominent 
people in Brooklyn, gathered to do him honor. In home life he has 
been happy, beloved and appreciated. Twice married, his cheerful 
disposition combined with that of his wives to create a sunny and 
true home atmosphere. Their children rise up to call them blessed."

July 26, 1862, and was buried in the Soldiers' Home 
cemetery at Washington. His bravery and faithful- 
ness as a soldier was an honor to the name which 
he bore.

Children by second marriage : 

III. Rev. John Clarence, b. July 28, 1848; m. 1874, 
Julia I., dau. of Rev. Charles and Irene (Bell) 
Johnson. The following appreciative sketch is 
from " Men of Vermont," published by the Tran- 
script Co., 1894: "Rev. John Clarence Allen is 
from an ancestry distinguished in religious con- 
stancy. His ancestors for generations were Baptists, 
while his father and mother were active Christians 
from their youth, and sang together in church for 
thirty-five years. Love of music and skill in it are 
family characteristics, no less than church work. 
(Mr. Allen's sister Fanny is the wife of Rev. T. J. 
Whitaker of Brooklyn.) He was educated at 
WaUingford high school and Black River Academy 
. at Ludlow, Vt., and was graduated with highest 
oratorical and other honors at Madison (now 
Colgate) University at Hamilton, N. Y., in 1874. 
Mr. Allen entered upon his first pastorate in 
Newaik, N. J., in 1875. Success crowned his 
efforts. Following this work he served the First 
Baptist church of Elizabeth, N. J., for five and one- 
half years, performing loyal work, baptizing many 
and raising the church. The earnest call of the 
Hanson Place Baptist church drew Mr. Allen to 
Brooklyn. Here his highest devotion and energy 
found wide scope. During the summer and fall of 
1885 he remodeled the main audience room and 
erected lecture and Sunday school rooms, fitting 
them with essential modem appliances for church 
work. In the first year of the pastorate the entire 
church debt was pledged and paid off, amounting 
iO 540,000. During Mr. Allen's ministry, thus far 
he has baptized over seven hundred souls and has 
been the means of securing over $200,000 for the 
use of the Baptist denomination, and has borne an 
* ' honorable part in the formation and work of the 

Brooklyn Baptist Church Extension Society. His 
activity in temperance and other reform work has 
been highly commendable. At the National Pro- 
hibition convention at Cincinnati in 1893 he was a 
delegate. To many social organizations he has lent 
his earnest support and membership. Among them 
are the Phi Beta Kappa Society of New York, the 


American Institute of Civics, Metropolitan Museum 
of Art, Brooklyn Baptist Social Union, and the 
New York Alumni Association of Colgate Univer- 
sity, of which he is president" His last pastorate 
was that of the Bergin Baptist church in Jersey 
City, where in 1901 his health broke down in the 
midst of a revival, which rendered suspension of 
work necessary for the time. Since then he has 
supplied as strength and opportunity have per-, 
mitted. He resides in Brooklyn, N. Y. The 
degree of D. D., was conferred upon him in 1895 
by the American Temperance University. 
rV. Fanny Gray Allen, b. in Wallingford, Vt , Oct. 6, 1856 ; 
m. Aug. 21, 1889, Rev. Thomas J. Whitaker, b. 
June 2, 1844, At Deposet, N. Y., son of Benjamin 
and Clarissa (Hulce) Whitaker. When xS years 
old he entered the service of his country, being 
mustered in Aug. 27, 1862, as a member of Co. E, 
109th Regt, N. Y. S. Vols. He spent three years 
in ser\'ice, mainly with the Army of the Potomac ; 
participated in the battles of the Wilderness, Spott- 
sylvania, Gain's Farm, Cold Harbor, before Peters- 
burg from June 17 to the following April, Welden 
R. R., Poplar Green Church, and to the close of 
the war. He had many narrow escapes, but was 
unhurt. After the war he engaged in farming, but 
being called to the ministr)' entered Madison (now

then he has served the churches in Middletown, 
Ira, North Springfield, Jamaica and Townshend, 
Vty over which last church he was settled in No- 
vember, 1874. He was successful in all his 
pastorates and left a name honored and respected 
in each. He was of French origin. His parents 
being Catholics, he was early instructed in that 
faith, and was confirmed in the church at 
the early age of ten years, in which he con- 
tinued until the age of nineteen, when he was 
converted to Protestantism. He then devoted seven 
years preparatory to entering the Baptist ministry. 
He was ordained for the ministry in 1S63 at Fair- 
fax. From the published account of him at the 
time of his death we have the opinion of one who 
knew him well and who speaks of him as '' a man 
of more than ordinary ability, and who was held in 
high esteem by his church and denomination. He 
had been the secretary of the Vermont Baptist 
State Convention for seven years, and was largely 
instrumental in consolidating the records of the 
Vermont Baptist anniversaries. He was quite a 
historical student, and at the time of his decease 
was engaged in i»Titing up a very minute history of 
the Baptist denomination in this state." The chil- 
dren of C. P. and E. L. Frenyear are (x) Thomas 
Cyprian Frenyear, b. in Middletown, Vt., March 16, 
1865 ; m. June 28, 1893, Emma Louise Chase, dau. 
of Rev. J. N. Chase of Exeter, N. H.; d. in 
Buffalo, N. Y., Dec. 10, 1903. He became early 
interested in electrical science, the study of which 
he continued through Phillips Exeter Academy, the 
Boston Latin School and Harvard College. His 
fitness for the position won for him a place as the 
manager of the Cagandutta Electric Railroad System 
at Gloversville, N. V., which position he took in 
June, 1892, and by his energy and perseverence won 
the esteem of all and soon paved the way for his 
advancement to a higher place with the Westing- 
house Electrical Co. at Buffalo, N. Y., where he 
gained the confidence of all with whom he came 
in contact, and at the time of his death, such was 
his promise, he would soon have been advanced to 
a still higher position of honor and trust. Led by 
the benign influence of his parents, he imbibed in 
early life a deeply religious spirit and experienced 


conversion at the age of eleven. He was con* 
nected with the Delaware Avenue Baptist church of 
Buffalo, in which he served as superintendent of 
the Sunday school, deacon and trustee. His widow

1863, Lucinda Elmina Scott, b. June 5, 1845, in Vernon, Vt, dau. of 
Elea2er Guernsey and Sarah A. (Noyes) Scott of Vernon. From 
the several biographies published of him we condense the following 
facts : 

'' He numbers among his ancestors five worthy members of the 
Mayflower, viz : Governor John Carver, his wife and granddaughter, 
Elizabeth Tilly, John Tilly and John Howland, besides many of the 
earliest emigrants to New England, and several who engaged in the 
Colonial and Revolutionary wars. He completed his education at 
Chester, Vt, Academy, where he won an enviable position as a 
student During his course of study there he taught school in the 
towns of Windham, Cavendish and Vernon, Vt. After graduating 
he taught school in Hackensack, N. J. He was for several years 
superintendent of schools in Vernon, Vt» and resigned the office 
on his removal from the state. He came to Palmer, Mass., Oct 5, 
1859, when he commenced the business of pharmacy, in which 
he continued tiU the fall of 1902, when he retired from the business. 
'' He evinced in early life a decided txiste for literary pursuits, and 
his course of reading has been unusually extensive, ranging through 
nearly all departments of literature -and embracing the classics, 
poetry, history and various sciences. He commenced writing for 
the press at the age of fifteen, and has continued to contribute 


to numerous publications since. Has been interested for many 
years in the subject of local history and genealogy; has written 
many historical papers for the press, and has published the 
genealogy of the Lee, Fairman and Doolittle families. Has copied 
and published the inscriptions of the two ancient cemeteries of 
Palmer, and besides compiling the present volume of the Allen 
memorial, has nearly completed a genealogy of the descendants of 
William Scott of Hatfield, Mass. He compiled the manual of the 
Second Congregational church of Palmer in 1895, and on the occa- 
sion of the celebration of the jubilee anniversary of the foregoing 
church in 1897 was chdsen to deliver the historical address. He 
was also chosen to deliver the historical address on the occasion of 
the celebration of the centennial of Thomas Lodge of Masons in 
Palmer in 1896, of which he is a member. 

''He has never sought office, yet has been called to fill many places 
of trust He was secretary and treasurer of the Eastern Hampden 
Agricultural Society for nineteen years, and for three years a member 
of the Massachusetts State Board of Agriculture. He was for many 
years a trustee of the Palmer Savings Bank. He was for several 
years superintendent of the Sunday school connected with the 
Second Congregational church of PaUner, and for seventeen years 
the clerk of this church. He was one of the pioneer movers in the 
founding of the Young Men's Library Association of Palmer in 1878, 
being its librarian for some twelve years and one of its trustees till 
the present time. In 1883, when the history of Palmer was pro* 
jected, he was selected by the town as one of the publishing com- 
mittee, of which he was the chairman, and devoted much time to 
the collecting of material for the same until its completion in 1889. 
He was the prime mover in establishing the Palmer Historical 
Society, which was organized in May, 1899, and incorporated 
through his efforts in May, 1900. He has served as the curator of 
the society since its organisation. He has collected and identified a 
very complete flora of Palmer, embracing some 450 specimens. 
Mrs. Allen also comes from ancestors who took an active and 
notable part in the wars of the Colonial and Revolutionary times. 
Her ancestor, William Scott, was a participant in the famous " Falls" 
fight ; her great, great-grandfather, Capt. Moses Scott, was one of 
the brave defenders of Fort Massachusetts, and his son, Ebenezer 

Jaion C«dy ADen. 

Chutes Andenon ABea. 


Scott, her great-grandfather, survived a captivity among the French 
and Indians of Quebec and came back to prepare for his service in 
after years as a soldier for American liberty, and living to a good old 
age became an honored pensioner of the United States.

Ancestors of Ann Coleman, Wife of Edward' Allen. 

The name Coleman first appears in history in A. D. 664, in the 
person of a noted Scotch Bishop of Lindspame, an Island on the 
northeast coast of England. He died A. D. 676. Five branches of 
the family have been honored with coats of arms. Thomas Coleman, 
the grandfather of our Ann, was bom in 1602 and came from 
Wiltshilly Eng., in the Ship "James/* which arrived in Boston June 
3, 1635. He settled first in Newbury, Mass., removed thence to 
Hampton, N. H., and in 1664 he settled at Nantucket, Mass., where 
he d. 1685, ae. 83. His first wife, Susaxma, the mother of his 
children, d. Nov. 17, 1650. He had seven children, of whom 
Joseph, b. Dec. 2, 1645, m. 1672 Ann Bunker; he d. 1690. Then 
dau. Ann, m. our Edward Allen. The father of Ann Bunker was 
George, son of William Bunker, a Huguenot in England, who came 
to New England and settled at Ipswich and later at Topsfield, Mass. 
He married Jane Godfrey about 1645 ; was drowned at Topsfield 
May 26, 1658; of his five children Ann, b. 1654, m. Joseph 
Coleman, father of our Ann. 

B. — See p. 25. 

Ancestors of Provided Gaskell, Fmsi* wife of 

Nathaniel Allen. 

She was the daughter of Capt. Samuel Gaskell, son of Samuel and 
Provided (Southwick) Gaskell, whose father, Ed\%'ard Gaskell, had a 
grant of land at Salem in 1637, who had by his wife Sarah five 

Her great grandparents, Lawrence and Cassandra Southwick, 


came to New England in 1630 and settled in Salem» Mass. He was 
the first to manufacture glass and earthem ware* in this country. 
About 1658 they joined the Quakers, and as such were fined; the 
wife was the heroine of Whittier's poem» ** Cassandra Southwick." 
Their daughter, Provided, the grandmother of our Provided, the 
wife of Nathaniel Allen, was ordered to be sold as a slave to any 
Christian shipmaster, but to the lasting honor of the shipmasters of 
those days none would buy her. 

C — See p. 35. 
Ancestors of Mercy Skiff, second wife of Nathaniel Allen, 

FIVE of them being OF THE MAYFLOWER. 

Her line of descent from Gov. Carver has recently been quite 
clearly established as follows : 

I. ''John Carver, sonne of James Carver, LincolLshill, Yeoman, 
called by the grace of God Governor of our Colony December ye 
loth, 1620, one year ! He died April 5, 1621." 

n. His wife, Katherine Carver, died in the early summer fol- 
lowing. (See Bradford's Hist. Plymouth Plantation). Another 
account says Mrs. Carver was a sister of Pastor Robinson. 
. in. John llUey m. first, the daughter of John Carver in England; ? 
(name probably Elizabeth). She doubtless died in Holland. M« 
(2d) February, 1615, Bridget Van der Velde. He and his wife died 
at Plymouth soon after landing, so says Bradford. 

Maurt in his ** Relations," p. '44, says John Tilley, — I find in the 
Leyden MS. Records, — ''This February, 16 15, John Tilley, silk 
worker of Leyden, married Bridget Van der Velde." This proves 
that John Tilley's dau. Elizabeth was the ofiEspring of the first 

IV. John Howland, m. 1621 or 1623 Elizabeth, dau. of John 
Tilley ; 10 children were the fruit of this marriage. John Howland 
d. Feb. 22, 1672 ; his wife Elizabeth, d. Dec. 2, 1687. 

V. Elizabeth Tilley, b. 1607. The Bible printed in 1588 and 
brought over in the Mayflower by William White, discovered a few 
years since, now in Hartford, Conn., contains much written memo- 
randa on its margins at a very early date, among which has been 
found the foUowing: ''John Howland married Katherine Tilley, 
granddaughter of John Carver, Governor appointed Anno Domini 


163O9 of Ply mouthy now called New Plymouth." (See Conn, 
magazine for March, 1899, ^^ which a photographic illustration of 
the above and many others is given from the old Bible, which fully 
establishes the above claim). 

VI. John Chipman, b. 16x5 near Dorchester, Eng., m. 1646, 
Hope Howland, dau. of John and Elizabeth. She d. in Barnstable, 
Jan. 8, 1683 ; he d. July 8, X684. 

VII. Nathan' Skiff, (James')f b. in Sandwich, Mass., May 16, 
1658 ; m. as his second wife Dec. 13, 1699, Mercy Chipman, dau. of 
John and Hope, b. Feb. 6, x668. They lived and died in Chilmark, 
M. V. He d. Feb. 9, x 725-6 ; she d. June 19, 1724. 

Nathan was the son of James Skiff, the emigrant who settled in 
Sandwich, Mass., 1637, where he d. after x688. His wife is said to 
have been Mary Reeves. She d. in Sandwich Sept. 2X, 1673, (See 
Freemans Cape Cod). 

VIII. Mercy, dau. of Nathan and Mercy Skiff, b. Sept 3, 170X, 
widow of Prince Coffin, m. Nathaniel Allen as his second wife. As 
will be seen from the above, all descendants of this couple are 
eligible to be members of the Mayflower Society.

ANCcnroKs of Hephzibah Coftin, wife of Joseph Allen. 

Her Coffin line. 

The name Coffin, or Coffyn, is of very ancient origin and signifies 
a basket. For much of the following concerning the early history 
of the family I am indebted to the researches of Hon. Allen Coffin 
of Nantucket *' Within two short leagues of Fallaise (the birth- 
place of William the Conqueror) stands the old chateau of 
Courtition, once the home of the Norman Coffins, the family name 
having now become extinct in that vicinage. The present owner, 
Mons. LeClare, is the grandson of the last Miss Coffin, the estate 
having descended in an unbroken male line, as is supposed, from 
her ancestors. She married in 1796, from which time the name of 
LeClare has succeeded to that of Coffin as possessor of this 
ancient estate." 

It is thought with good reason that Sir Richard Coffin was the 
first of the family in England who was knighted by the Conqueror 
for his valuable services, and from whom the English branch has 
descended. The estate now called Portledge in the parish of 


Alwington, in Co. Devon, has been held in the Coffin family since 
the conquest. The family has been held in high esteem for ages, 
and many of the name have added luster to the house. Seven 
branches of the Coffin family have had the grant to bear arms. 

Nicholas' Coffin, the grandfather of the founder of the American 
branch of the family, was horn about 1550, and had his home in 
Brixton, Co. Devon, England. He m. Joan , and d. 16 13. 

Peter* Coffin, bom about 1580 ; m. Joan Thember. He inherited 
his father's estate at Brixton and d. 1627. The widow, Joan, d. in 
Brixton May 30, 1661, ae. 77. 

Tristram^ Coffin, b. in Brixton, Eng., 1605 ; m. about 1630, Dionis 
Stevens, dau. of Robert Stevens of Brixton, and came to New 
England in 1642. He settled first at Salisbury, Mass., and later in 
Haverhill and Newbury. In 1660, having become one of the 
purchasers of Nantucket, he removed there with his family, where he 
remained till his death Oct. 2, 1681. He was a man of influence 
and one of the wealthiest proprietors of Nantucket, and its chief 
magistrate many years. 

Hon. Peter4 Coffin, b. in Brixton, England, 1631 ; m. about 1656, 
Abigail, dau. of Edward and Katherine (Reynolds) Starbuck of 
Dover, N. H., later of Nantucket. Peter Coffin ''was one of the 
original purchasers of Nantucket, and tradition says was the wealthiest, 
then owning large mill property. He was a merchant of Dover 
before the purchase, and subsequently lived at Nantucket, but only 
for a short time. He was made freeman in 1666 at Dover; a 
lieutenant in 1675, on ser^'ice in King Philip's Indian War; a 
representative in the Legislative branch in 1662-3, ^^^ again in 1679. 
In 1690 he removed to Exeter, N. H. From 1692 to 1714 he was 
at diflTcrent times associate justice and chief justice of the Supreme 
Court of New Hampshire, and a member of the governor's council. 
He d. at Exeter March 31, 1715, but most of his life was spent at 

JethroS Coffin, b. Sept. 16, 1663 ; m. 1686, Mary, dau. of Hon. 
John and Priscilla (Grafton) Gardner, b. May 27, 1670. He d. at 
Mendon, Mass., 1726; she d. at Nantucket Oct. 27, 1767, ae. 97. 
A substantial house was built for the young couple at Nantucket on 
land given for the purpose by the bride's father, by Mr. Coffin, «ith 
timber prepared and shipped from Dover in 1686. Here the couple 


lived for more than twenty happy years, and here their six children 
were bom ; then the family removed to Mendon, Mass.» where the 
father died. The above house, erected in 1686, still stands, now the 
oldest house on the island. After the death of her husband the 
widow returned to Nantucket, where she lived with her son Josiah 
in a house built in 1724, which still remains in the possession of her 
descendants, and on the wall hangs the oil portrait of Mary Gardner 
Coffin, painted more than 180 years ago. 

Robert^ Coffin, b. on Nantucket Feb. 21, 1704 ; m. Pamel Coffin, 
dau. of Samuel and Miriam. She d. Oct. 26, 1727; he m. (2d) 
Susanna Coffin, dau. of Jonathan and Hephzibah (Harker) Coffin, 
b. in Nantucket, Dec. 30, 1712 ; d. April 9, 1795. He d. Aug. 8, 

Children by first marriage : 

I. Joanna, m. Bridgman Stubbs. She d. Nov. 24, 1760. 

Children by second marriage : 

IL Susanna, b. Sept 18, 1731 ; ro*. James Whipple, son of James 

and Patrina. 

III. Catherine, ro. Paul Folger, son of Nathaniel and Priscilla. 

IV. Hephzibah, b. Oct. x8, 1736; m. Joseph Allen, son of 
Nathaniel and Mercy. 

V. Peggy, b. Sept 26, 1738; m. Jonathan Coffin, son of Nathan 
and Lydia. She d. Oct. 7, 1805. 

VI. Mary, b. Nov. 18, 1740; m. Coggershall Rathbom. 

VII. Ephrairo, b. Jan. 4, 1743; m. Sarah Folger. He d. July 
15, 1810. 

VIII. Jethro, b. Dec. 23, 1744; m. Margaret Brook. He died 
July 4, 1776. 

IX. Jonathan, b. Jan. 22, 1747 ;^m. Sally Fosdick. He d. Aug. 
24, 1823. 

X. Robert, b. Dec 4, 1755 ; d. unm. Dec., 1774. 

From the above it will be seen that Hephzibah Coffin, wife of 
Joseph Allen, was descended on her mother's side from Hon. James 
Coffins Tristram3, Peter*, Nicholas'. 

James Coffin, b. in England Aug. 12, 1640; m. Dec. 3, 1663, Mary 
dau. of John and Elizabeth (Kimball) Severence of Salisbury, Mass. 
He d. at Nantucket July 28, 1720. He spent the last fifty years of 
his life at Nantucket, where he was judge of the Probate Court. He 


had fourteen children, all of whom, except two, married and had 
famiUes. From him descended some of the most noted members of 
the CofSn family. Among these may be mentioned Admiral, (Sir 
Isaac" Coffin, Nathaniel^ William^i Nathaniels, James*, Tristram^, 
Peter', Nicholas'). ''He was b. in Boston, Mass., May x6, 1759. 
Entering the English Navy in 1773, he was commissioned a Lieuten- 
ant 1778, Captain 1781 ; Rear Admiral of the White Squadron, 
1804 ; Baronet and also granted a coat of arms the same year ; Vice 
Admiral 1808, and in 1817 Admiral. He d. at Cheltenham, 
England, in 1839 without issue." In 1826 he visited Nantucket, 
when he gave ;^iooo for founding a high school there. Afterwards 
he added to the sum, which now amounts to $50,000. 

Jonathans Coffin, son of the above James and brother of the great 
grandfather of Sir Isaac, b. on Nantucket, Aug. 38, 1693 ; m. Nov. 
21, 17x1, Hephzibah, dau. of Ebenezer and Patience (Folger) 
Harker, b. 1694 and d. Dec. 30, 1773 ; he d. Feb. 5, 1773. They 
had ten children, of whom Susanna^ Coffin, b. Dec. 30, 171 2; m. 
Robert, son of Jethro and Mary (Gardner) Coffin, who was the 
father of Hephzibah? Coffin, the wife of Joseph ADen. Their son, 
Robert Allen, the grandfather of the compiler of this work, and Sir 
Isaac Coffin were third cousins. 


Hephzibah Coffin, wife of Joseph Allen, claims descent from 

Edward Starbuck through the marriage of her ancestor, Peter^ 

Coffin, to Abigail, dan. of Edward Starbuck, who came from. 

Derbyshire, Eng., and settled in Nantucket in 1659* He was b. 

1605; d. at Nantucket Feb. 4, X69X. He married Catherine 



Hephzibah (Coffin) ADen's descent from Thomas Gardner is as 

Thomas' Gardner came probably from Sherbom in the north part 
of Co. Dorset, England, about 1624 and settled first at Cape 
Ann. He removed to Salem in 1626, being one of the first settlers 
there as well as one of the first members of the church; made 
freeman in x 63 7 and chosen deputy the same year. He m. Margaret 
Frier, who d. x6s9; m. (2d) Damaris Shattuck, widow. She d. 
Nov. 28, X674; he d. Dec. 29, 1674. Of his nine children Hon. 



John* Gardner, b. 1634 ; m. Feb. 20, 1653, Priscilla, dan. of Joseph 
and Mary Grafton. He was a marine captain, became justice of 
the peace, judge of probate and chief magistrate. He d. May x , 
1706, at Nantucket His wife d. xyxy. A granite monument 
marks his grave near Maxcy's Pond. Of his twelve children Maryi 
Gardner, b. at Salem May 27, 1670, m. x686 Jethro Coffin; they 
were the grandparents of Hephzibah, wife of Joseph Allen. 


Joseph Grafton, the great-great-grandfather of Hephzibah 
(Cofiin) Allen, came from England to Salem about 1636. He m. 
Mary—, the mother of his children, who d. Nov. 1675 ; he d. 
before 1683 ; was an active marine and merchant at Salem. Of his 
four children, Priscilla Grafton, m. Feb. 20, x6s3, John Gardner. 
John A. Andrew, governor of Massachusetts, was descended directly 
from Joseph GraftoiL 

John Severence came in the '^Elizabeth" in 1654, was an original 
proprietor of Salisbury, 1637; of Boston, X663; a commissioned 
o£5cer in the militia 1671 ; m. Elizabeth, dau. of Richard and 
Ursula (Scott) Kimball, b. in England 1621. He d. April 8, x682. 
Of hb twelve children Mary Severence, b. Aug. 5, 1645 ; m. Dec. 3, 
19631 James^ Coffin, son of Tristram^, thus making John Severence 
the great-great-grandfather of Hephzibah, Joseph Allen's wife. 


Ebenezer Harker, m. Patience, dau. of Peter and Mary Folger 
and granddaughter of John Folger, the emigrant. Their dau. 
Hephzibah Harker, b. 1694, m. Nov. 4, x7xx, Jonathan, son of 
James and Mary (Severence) Coffin, b. in Nantucket, Aug. 28, 1692. 
She d. Dec. 30, 1773 • ^^d. Feb. 5, 1773. It will thus be seen that 
Ebenezer Harker Sr., was the great-grandfather of Hephzibah, 
Joseph Allen's wife. 


Camden derives; this name from Fougers, a town near the 
frontier of Normandy, France, which was fortified by Raoul de 
Fougers, and afterward built a castle. 

John Folger came from the city of Norwich, Co. Norfolk, 
England, in 1635 and settled on Martha'; Vineyard. He had m. 


Meriba Gibbs in England, where she died, leaving a son Peter, who 
came with his father to the Vineyard. 

Peter* Folger, b. in England, 1617; m. 1644 Mary Morrill, who 
had come over in the family of Hugh Peters. He removed from the 
Vineyard to Nantucket in 1663, where he d. i6qo ; she d. 1704. He 
was well educated, and being well versed in the Indian language was 
of much assistance to the settlers. 

There have been many illustrious descendants of Peter Folger, 
among whom we may mention Walter Folger, astronomer, mathe* 
matician and representative to Congress; Charles J. Folger, U. S. 
Senator, Chief Justice in Court of Appeals in New York, and Secre- 
tary of the Treasury under President Arthur ; Benjamin F. Folger, 
the noted genealogist of Nantucket ; and William C. Folger, another 
dehrer in the same line of research, who left a vast amount of 
material as a result of many years of labor. Of the daughters of 
Petei' Folger, Abiah, b. Aug. 25, 1667 ; m. 1690 Josiah Franklin and 
was the mother of that great man, Benjamin Franklin ; and as we 
have seen, another daughter, Patience, b. about 1670, m. Ebenezer 
Harker, thus making Hephzibah, wife of Joseph Allen, and Benjamin 
Franklin third cousins. 


Richard Kimball embarked April 10, 1634, from Ipswich, Co. 
Suffolk, Eng., at the age of 39 on the ship '' Elizabeth." There 
came with him his wife and seven children, besides relatives of his 
wife* He settled at first in Watertown, and removed Feb. 24, 1637, 
to Ipswich. He was a wheelwright. He m. in England Ursubi, 
dan. of Henry and Martha Scott. She d. before 1661 ; he d. 
June 22, 1675, ae. 80. Of his eleven children Elizabeth, b. in 
England 1621 ; m. John Severence, whose dau. Mary m. James 
Coffin. Richard Kimball was the great-great-grandfather of 
Hephzibah (Coffin) Allen. 


Henry Scott was of Rattlesden, Suffolk Co., Eng. He m. Martha, 
b. 1574, and had Thomas, b. 1594, and Ursula, b. 1595, who m. 
Richard Kimball. Henry Scott is supposed to have died in England 
prior to the immigration of his widow and children and their families 
to New England. He was the great-great-great- grandfather of our 
Hephzibah Coffin.

' Ancestors of Rhoda Cady, wife of Robert Allen. 

Arthur says Cady is derived from the Gaelic, Ca-dia, meaning the 
house of God. In Scottish, Cadie means a messenger. The name 
has been found under the varied form of Caddie, Caddy, Cadey, 
Cadeye, Kadye, Cade and Cady. The form Cadie appears in the 
Domesday survey. Five of the name have borne coats of arms. It 
is an ancient name in England. 

Nicholas' Cady, the ancestor of our family in America, first 
appears on our records at Watertown, Mass., in 1645, when he had a 
deed of land there, his occupation being that of a carpenter. He 
there m. before 1650 Judith, dau. of WiUiam Knapp. He sold his 
possessions in Watertown in 1668 and removed to Groton, Mass., 
where he is supposed to have lived tmtil about 17 13 until the time 
of his death. His children bom in Watertown were : John, Judith, 
James, Nicholas died young, David, Ezekiel, Joseph and Aaron. 

Of the foregoing children Capt Joseph' Cady, b. May 28, 1666 ; 
m. Sarah — ; in 1691 he did garrison duty to protect Groton against 
the Indians; was elected constable of Groton in 1695; was an 
innholder there from 2696 to 1701. On Feb. 22, 1703, he sold his 
estate in Groton and removed to Killingly, Ct., buying a farm one 
mile east of the present city of Putnam, where in 17x5 he erected a 
pretentious house, still standing, which became historic in after 
years. He was chosen the first captain of the trained band in 
Killingly for its defense against the Indians in 1720. He d. Dec. 29, 
1742. His children were Joseph, William, James, Isaac, Abigail, 
Stephen, David, Jonathan and Benjamin. Of his children, Stephen^ 
Cady was b. in Groton, June x6, 1701, m. March 20, 1723, Abigail, 
dau. of Samuel and Mary Lee of Killingly, b. 1 703. He was a 
prosperous fanner and mason in Killingly, where he d. June 21, 
1785; she d. Oct. x8, X782. His children were Samuel, Martha, 
Mercy, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Sarah and Rhoda. Of these children
