Allen is the name of an ancient family in the County of Durham, 
England, and of another family which lived in the County of Essex. The 
name in early times was written Alon, Alwyne, Alleine, Allyn, and many 
other ways, but in New England, as well as in England, the common spelling 
is Allen. 

In 1774, Rev. Joseph Thaxter, of Edgartown, Mass., whose wife was Mary 
Allen, a descendant of George Allen, one of the early settlers in New 
England, obtained from England the description of the Coat of Arms worn 
by the Aliens in the old country, which is as follows :

Borne also by Sir Thomas Allen, of Finchley, Middlesex. 


This book does not contain a complete genealogy of the descendants of 
George Allen; but only of those families to whose registers access could 
be obtained. With all the imperfections, it is thought best to embalm 
these fragments in print before the records are irretrievably lost. 

The system of arrangement is that used in the " New England Historical 
and Genealogical Register." The abbreviations used will readily be under- 

A genealogy of this branch of the Allen family was compiled by William 
Allen, late of Norridgewock. This work has been the basis of this gen- 

The author gratefully acknowledges his indebtedness to many friends 

who have aided in the prosecution of this work ; especially to his kinsmen, 

Stephen Allen, D. D., who furnished the Coat of Anns, which adds 

much to the value of the work; and C. F. Allen, D. D., who assisted in 

its arrangement and publication. 


Wayne, January, 1882. 


1. Geobge Allen, who was born in England about 1568, under the 
reign of Queen Elizabeth, is the ancestor of that branch of the Allen family 
that settled in Martha's Vineyard. Of some of his descendants we give 
this Genealogy. 

In 1635, when the Puritans were emigrating in great numbers from the 
old country to escape from the persecution of Archbishop Laud, under 
Charles I., George iVllen and his family came to America and settled in Sau- 
gus, Lynn. Three years before this, Samuel Allen, with his two brothers, 
Matthew and Thomas Allyn, came from Braintree, Essex County, England, 
and settled first in Cambridge, Mass. ; afterwards all three of the brothers 
removed to Connecticut. (See Genealogy of Samuel Allen and his descend- 
ants, by Willard S. Allen.) 

In 1637, George Allen joined with Edmund Freeman and others in the 
purchase of the Township of Sandwich, and the same year settled in that 
place. When the town of Sandwich was incorporated, he was chosen Dep- 
uty, the first office in the town, and served in that capacity for several years. 
He was a conscientious Puritan and a member of the Baptist Church. He' 
had ten sons, some of whom came over from England before he emigrated 
to this country, and settled first in the vicinity of Boston ; but after the 
purchase of Sandwich, the most of them, with their families, removed to 
that town and settled in the vicinity of their father's residence. George 
Allen senior, died in Sandwich, May 2, 1648, aged about 80. In his will he 
| named his five sons Matthew, Henry, Samuel, George, and William ; and 
also made provision for his "five least children," without naming them. 

2. Samuel 2 ( George 1 ), b. in England ; came over with the first settlers 
of Boston in 1628. In 1635 it is recorded that he was a freeman in Brain - 

( tree. His first wife, Ann, d. Sept., 1641. His second wife was Mrs. Mar- 
garet Lamb, widow of Edward Lamb. Samuel Allen had a grant of twenty- 
eight acres of land in Braintree for seven persons, in 1640. He died in 
Braintree, 1669. 

Children :

ii. Mary, b. 1634 ; rri. Nathaniel Greenwood, 1656.

yard Aliens, who are now scattered, from Maine to California.

Miles Standish, the Puritan Captain.

\ wife, Rebecca , who d. March, 1702 : third wife, Mrs. Lydia Holbrook, 

who d. 174"). Deacon Joseph Allen was a prominent man in his day. He 
d. March. 1727. 


3. James 3 (Samuel, 2 George 1 ), b. in 1636, at Braintree ; m. Elizabeth 
Perkins. Tn 1668 James Allen, with his brother-in-law, Lieut. Josiah Stand- 
ish, and William Peabody, had letters patent from the Lords Proprietors, 
through their agent, Thomas Mayhew, Governor of Martha's Vineyard, au- 
thorizing them to purchase land on the island of the Indian Sachems, the 
lawful owners. By the records it appeals that James Allen purchased a 
large tract called Chicame, in the manor of Tisbnry, now Chilmark and Tis- 
bury. He settled upon it in 1660, near the old meeting house, and gave the 
town of Tisbury an acre of land for a burial place, in close proximity to the 
meeting house. He died 1714, aged 78. His wife Elizabeth survived her 
husband, and lived a widow 8 years. She had a good estate in her own 
right, which she bequeathed to her eleven children, all living in 17J 6, the 
date of her will. She died in 1722, and was buried in the old burying place.

The following account has been furnished by Kev. Henry A. Homes, who. at the 
time of writing, 1864, was librarian of the State library, Albany, N. Y. 

William Homes was born in 1663, whether in Scotlaud or Ireland is not 
certain. He first came to this country in 1686, when twenty-three years of 
age. It was about this time that the Scotch Irish commenced emigrating 
to America to escape the persecutions of the Stuarts and the prelacy. On 
Mr. Homes' arrival, he was engaged as a teacher, first in Chilmark, and 
afterwards in Tisbury, for three years. After this, he returned to Scotland, 
and pursued the course of study in the University of Edinburgh, where he 
received the degree of A. M., in 1692. He was ordained as a clergyman, 
1693, at Straberne, a borough town twelve miles south-west of Londonder- 
ry ; and was settled over the Presbyterian church there. He married 
Katharine, daughter of Rev. Robert Craighead of Derry, in 1693. In 17 14, 
he came again to Martha's Vineyard. The people of Chilmark, which was 
incorporated as a town that year, remembered the young man who taught 
among them twenty-eight years before, and invited him to become their 
pastor. He discharged the duties of the ministry faithfully for thirty-one 
years, having a high repute for piety and learning. It is said he used 
to fast twice in the week. His salary was £60 a year. He took some care 
of a small farm, but lived mostly on his salary. He was the author of five 
printed volumes, three of them published during his life. The two printed 
after his death were on Family Prayer and Family Government, with a pre- 
face recommending them, by Drs. Sewall and Prince of Boston. He pre- 
ferred a moderate Presbyterianisrn to the evils, he thought he saw, in the 
Congregationalism by which he was surrounded. He died in 1716 at the 
age of 81. Preaching in his pulpit, he fell down suddenly in a fit, and grad- 
ually declined till his death. A marble stone in the grave yard at Chilmark 
has the following inscription : "In memory of the reverend, learned, emi- 
nently prudent and pious Mr. William Homes, late pastor of the Church of 
Christ in Chilmark, who departed this life June 17, 1746, aged 84 years." 
Katharine, his wife, lies by his side ; died 1754, aged 82. Rev. H. A. Homes 
says: "In the new church which I visited in 1828, I saw the identical pul- 
pit from which he used to preach, I also saw the widow Hilson,* an hun- 
dred years old, who had lived in his family and had heard him preach." 
He had seven children, three sons and four daughters, when he came to 
America in 1714. In his journal he records the marriage of Katharine, 
Margaret, Jane, and Agnes ; Hannah also was his daughter, who was not

married, her last years were spent in the family of Dea. James Allen, who 
married her sister Jane He records also the marriage of James Hutchin- 
son and Elizabeth Homes, in Boston, 1730, by Rev. Mr. Prince, also of Ben- 
jamin Daggett and Margaret Homes, by himself in 1734. Who these were 
is not known. One of the daughters married a brother of the celebrated 
Benjamin Franklin. A descendant of the Homes family from Belfast, Ire 
land, has furnished the following account : " My great grand-father Homes 
Avas a henchman to McDonnell, Lord of the Isles, and head of that clan in the 
hisrhlands of Scotland. The whole clan of Homes came from Scotland, and 
settled on the north-east coast of Ireland, where they are now to be found 
in numbers, true old Presbyterians, who would never renounce the solemn 
League and Covenant." Rebecca, wife of William Homes, 2d, died in Bos- 
ton, August 1786, at the House of her son William. This house was located 
on Ann street; Oak Hall, a noted clothing store, now occupies the site. 
Mr. Henry A. Homes says of Hannah Homes : " She was remarkable as a 
peacemaker. The memory of the good works and alms deeds which she did 
is still fragrant among the people." A negro once said he could not swear 
when seated in her chair. She died in 1794, at the age of 90 at the house 
of Deacon Allen. The diary of her father was in her custody till her death. 
Zebulon, son of Dea. James, son of Sylvanus and Jane Allen brought this 
diary to Maine in 1818. It has since been deposited in the library of the 
Maine Historical Society. 



Dr. James Tupper, a gentleman of education, was born in England, and 
came to this country previous to the Revolution. During that war he was 
a resident of Martha's Vineyard, where he married Deborah, daughter of 
Jonathan Allen. Afterwards he removed to Pownalboro, now Dresden. 
In company with Capt. William Allen, he purchased.a vessel, loaded it with 
produce and sailed on a trading voyage to Halifax, N. S. The voyage was 
long and stormy. On their return, delayed by head winds and almost ex- 
hausted, they anchored at Cape Ann, where the crew went on shore. Doct. 
Tupper looked back and exclaimed: "Now blow, Mr. Devil, the vessel is in 
a good harbor, well anchored." The wind rose in the night, the cable part- 
ed, and before morning the vessel was ground to fragments on the rocks. 
At Pownalboro the Doctor built the timber ship called the "Experiment," 
of 513 tons. It was built and stowed with lumber, leaving only room for the 
navigators. He intended to sell the whole for timber in England, but the 
experiment was not successful. The vessel on its voyage to England was 
abandoned by the crew off the coast of Labrador. Doctor Tupper was the 
pioneer New Churchman, or Swedenborgian, in this state, scrupulously hon- 
est and, though eccentric, was ever regarded as an earnest and consistent 
Christian. He had a family of nine children who lived to adult age. Tris- 
tram, settled in Churleston, S. O, and died near the close of the Rebellion, 
loved by his large family and respected by all who knew him. Frederic 
Allen settled in Savannah, Ga., a ship broker. Capt. Jonathan Allen com- 


manded several vessels built by Barzilla White of Richmond, Me., who marri- 
ed his sister Cordelia. Capt. Tupper died at an early age, leaving a widow 
and several children. Homes, the fourth son, was a ship broker in Savan- 
nah ; removed to Hallo well in 1832, and to Brooklyn, N. Y., in 1854, and 
died in 1865. Mary, one of the daughters, married Rev. Thomas N. Lord. 
Deborah, the youngest, died in Wintbrop, about 1836. 



Lemuel Le Baron was born in Plymouth, Mass., 1749. His grandfather, 
Francis Le Baron, a Huguenot came from France in 1692. The parents of 
Lemuel were intelligent, pious, and highly respectable. Dedicated to God 
in his infancy, from early life he was trained up for the Christian ministry. 
Graduated at Yale in 1768, and afterwards studied with Rev. Daniel Brins- 
made of Woodbury, Conn. In Jan., 1792, he was ordained and settled as 
jmstor over the Congregational church at Mattapoisett, where he continu- 
ed to preach for nearly 60 years. In Nov., 1774, he married Elisabeth 
Allen, of Martha's Vineyard, an exemplary Christian, with whom he lived 
in closest sympathy for 56 years. She died Nov. 9, 1830, aged 78 years. 
Mr. Le Baron died Nov. 26, 1836, in the 90th year of his age, and 65th of his 
ministry. He was courteous and refined in his manners, cordial and social 
in his intercourse, and charitable toward all in sentiment and practice ; 
while he was always firm in his convictions and a strenuous defender of the 



Among the early and eminent lawyers of Kennebec county was Frederick 
Allen, Esq., of Gardiner. He was born at Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard, Dec. 
22, 1780. His father, Jonathan Allen, Esq., a graduate of Harvard, received 
a good legal education, was proprietor of a large farm and was also engaged 
in navigation. He died when his youngest son Frederick svas three years 
old. Deprived by the death of his father of the advantages of a college ed- 
ucation, Frederick availed himself of the nid in his studies which his broth- 
er, Homes Allen, Esq., and his brother-in-law, Doctor Allen Mayhew, could 
give. After attending some time the Hingham Academy, he studied law 
with his brother Homes for two years, and then entered as a student at 
Hanover, Mass., the office of Benjamin Whitman, Esq., a leading advocate 
in the Plymouth Colony, A year or two afterward he removed with Mr. 
Whitman to Boston. The six months he resided in this city were of great 
advantage in his legal training, as he was brought into the society of Par- 
sons, Gore, Sullivan, Otis, Davis and other brilliant lawyers of the Suffolk 


bar. In 1805 be removed to Maine, settling first as a lawyer at Waldoboro, 
and after two years lie entered into partnership with Nathan Bridge, Esq., 
and removed to Gardiner. His partner soon relinquished law business and 
Mr. Allen entered upon an extensive practice in Kennebec and the sur- 
rounding counties. In 1812 he married Miss Hannah B. Whipple, daughter 
of Col. Oliver Whipple, a lawyer who practiced in Portsmouth and Boston, 
and grand-daughter of Sylvester Gardiner, proprietor of large estates in 
Gardiner. Mrs. Allen was a woman of fine taste. She made her home 
pleasant with attractive surroundings, and collected a valuable cabinet of 
minerals and fossils. Her literary and scientific attainments drew the 
attention of scientific men at home and abroad. Tbe account of her discov- 
eries of fossils in the tertiary formation at Gardiner brought her into cor- 
respondence with Lyell, Buckland, and other distinguished scientists in 
Europe and America. There were three sons and three daughters in the 
family. The daughters inherited much of their mother's scientific tastes. 
Eleanor married Dr. Martin Gay, a scientific physician, and Margaret mar- 
ried Prof. Elton, of Brown University. The oldest son, Frederick, died 
soon after completing his medical education at Harvard. Augustus Oliver 
and Charles Edward were lawyers, settled in Boston. Charles E. has been 
a member of both houses of the Massachusetts Legislature. 

Mr. Allen was a diligent student, a careful and accurate lawyer and an 
able advocate. Without the graces of oratory he could clearly present his 
cases to the court, and could convince the jury. He was successful in his 
profession, and never turned aside into the mazes of speculation or the 
labyrinth of politics. He received from Bowdoin College the honorary de- 
gree of A. M., and from Harvard the more distinguished title of LL. D. 
He continued till advanced age an honored and successful advocate, and 
died Sept., 1865, aged 85. 


William, the oldest and favorite son of Dea. James Allen, was born on 
Martha's Vineyard, 175G, and married Love Coffin of Edgartown. He was 
unfortunate in business, and followed the sea for many years without suc- 
cess. In 1792, he settled in a log camp in Farmington, two miles from any 
road or any other inhabitants, with a large and increasing family; subjected 
to tbe hardships and privations of the early pioneers in Franklin County. 
Living where his children could have no access to schools, by personal 
efforts and private instruction, his six sons and four daughters succeeded 
in qualifying themselves for teachers, under the inspiration and aid of their 
intelligent mother. All of the children were employed as teacbers of public 
schools, and all were successful in the various avocations of life. Capt. 
Allen was a deacon of the Congregational church in Industry thirty years. 
Nine of bis children were professors of religion, and two were ministers of 
the Gospel. Harrison, a Congregational minister, died a missionary among 
the Choctaws ; and tbe celebrated Camp Meeting John, living in 1881, has 
been for more than forty years a successful Methodist preacher. 




William Allen was born in Chilmark, Mass.. April 16, 1780, and in 1792 
removed with his father, Capt. William Allen, to Farmington, and afterwards 
to Industry. Inured to toil and privation, with little opportunity in the 
rude scenes of pioneer life for schools or education, he grew up an energet- 
ic young man of active mental powers, on whose labor and intelligence, as 
the eldest son, his father's family largely depended for support. By untir- 
ing industry, in his 22d year, he had cleared a farm for his father and anoth- 
er for himself, and had procured the means to defray his expenses for a few 
weeks at Hallowell Academy, where he afterwards served as assistant prin- 
cipal. He returned to the labor of the farm, and married Hannah Titcomb, 
daughter of Stephen Titcomb, Esq., the first settler in Farmington. His 
superior business capacity soon rendered him conspicuous among bis towns- 
men. Without seeking for office, he was employed in town business, and 
by land proprietors and others as their agent. As a Justice of the Peace he 
had more cases brought before him than all others in the county, and he was 
often selected as referee to settle disputes. He was appointed by Gov. Gore 
one of the Justices of a Special Court of Common Pleas, which office he filled 
till the Court was abolished. He was, in 1812, appointed Clerk of the Courts 
in Somerset County, and removed to Norridgewock. For twelve years he 
performed personally all the duties of the office, and in addition to this, he 
performed many legal services, for which his thorough knowledge of the 
principles and the forms of iaw eminently fitted him. His advice was sought 
by all classes of the community, and was always freely given. He assisted 
the unfortunate in extricating themselves from the complications of busi- 
ness, and audited the accounts of public officers. His ready pen and clear 
intellect were often employed by others in conducting their correspondence 
and in the adjustment of their accounts. When real estate was sold in any 
of the surrounding towns, he was called upon to survey the boundaries, and 
to make the deed of conveyance. For the most valuable services his charg- 
es were always moderate. He was for some time Register of Probate, and 
was perfectly familiar with all the details of probate business. He wrote 
more wills, settled more estates, and assisted more widows and orphans in 
seeming their rights than any other man in the count}'. Honored with the 
confidence of his townsmen, he served for twenty-two years, in the highest 
offices in the town. Other towns seeing his discretion and success, elected 
him as their agent. He was clerk to the State Valuation Committee in 1820 
and in each decade till 1850, and in the valuation of 1855. He represented 
the town in the Convention that formed the Constitution of Maine, and 
twice as representative in the Legislature. As a writer he furnished many 
historical sketches and other valuable communications for the public papers. 
He wrote a History of Norridgewock, a History of Industry, and compiled 
a Genealogy of the Allen Family. Just and accurate in all his dealings, he 
was generous in his disposition and courteous in his intercourse ; and down 
to old age his mental vigor remained unimpaired. He lived a consistent 
member of the Methodist Church, and died in cheerful hope of a blessed 
immortality, July 1, 1873, at the advanced age of 93. 




Rev. John Allen was born, 1794, in a log cabin at Farmington, where his 
father's family were battling with poverty in their forest home. In his 
early days he had little privilege of schools or instruction ; but when he 
was seventeen years old he attended for a few weeks the Farmington 
Academy. He was afterwards apprenticed to learn the clothiers' trade, 
and worked for some time in this business, teaching schools in the winter. 
As a young man he was wild and reckless, fond of the excitement of rude 
frolics. At musters, raisings, and other rural gatherings he was foremost 
in all the wild sports. He was converted at a camprueeting, and at once 
commenced a new life of earnest devotion to the service of Christ. After his 
conversion, campmeetings had a peculiar charm for him, and he attended 
these gatherings in all parts of the country as often as he could, so that be 
was able, near the close of his life, to enumerate more than three hundred 
and twenty campmeetings at which he had been present and had taken an 
active part in the exercises. He was known everywhere as "Campmeeting 
John." Having commenced preaching in mature life he was admitted as a 
member of the Maine Conference, and stationed in different appointments 
which he filled with great success. After a long period of active work, he 
was placed in the list of superannuated preachers. As a preacher he was 
original and interesting and as a pastor he was faithful and diligent. Many 
were added to the church under his ministry. He was distinguished for 
his wit ; opponents had reason to fear an encounter, for none excelled him 
in sharp and ready repartee. He served as Chaplain in the Maine House 
of Representatives in 1880. 



"Born the wild northern hills among, 
From which his yeoman father wrung 
By patient toil subsistence scant, — 
Not competence and yet not want, — 
He early gained the power to pay 
His cheerful self-reliant way." 

John S. Abbott was born at Temple, Maine, January 6, 1801, and died at 
Watertown, Mass., June 12, 1881. Frail and sickly in childhood and youth, 
few supposed he would live to reach manhood; but by careful and temper- 
ate habits, he reached a ripe age, retaining his mental vigor and ability to 
to work to the last. He graduated at Bowdoin College in 1827, the first in 
his class. During his college course, and after graduation, while studying 
law, he spent much time in teaching, often selecting unruly schools, which 
he controlled with perfect discipline, though he possessed little physical 
strength. He commenced the practice of law at Union, in 1830. After two 


years, at the solicitations of prominent citizens, lie removed to Tliomaston. 
In 1842, induced by family and business considerations, he removed to Nor- 
ridgewock, where he remained till 18G0. In 1835 he married Elizabeth T. 
Allen, daughter of William Allen, Esq., of Norridgewock. She died in 1858, 
deeply lamented by a wide circle of friends. Her superior intelligence and 
loveliness won the hearts of all around. To know her was to love her. 

Mr. Abbott's practice became very large, extending into nearly every 
county in the state. In Maine, and wherever he practiced, he commanded 
the respect and confidence alike of the bench, the bar and his clients. In 
1834, he was a member of the House of Representatives, and in 1835, Attor- 
ney General of Maine. Removing to Massachusetts in 1836, he opened an 
office in Boston, and continued in the successful practice of his profession 
while life lasted. He had a clear and logical mind, and could quickly dis- 
entangle the complications of the most intricate case. His energy and will 
were indomitable. In stormy times he could always be depended upon by 
friends and clients. Considerate in his treatment of others, he could be se- 
vere when occasion required. Through life he was a hard worker, and 
when just beginning to think of a little respite from continual toil, death 
gave him a sudden release. He was constantly making generous plans for 
his children and others. Always fond of little children, his love for them 
increased with his declining years. A kind father, a keen, upright lawyer, 
a good citizen, an earnest Christian, his memory will be cherished by his 
family and a wide circle of friends. 



Bela R. Reynolds married Elizabeth A. Allen, 1867. Now ( 1882 ) a book- 
seller and stationer in Winthrop, Maine. He enlisted in the Sixth Maine 
Regiment, was detailed for service in the Signal Corps, and continued in 
that service three years.
