PREFACE 



Pride of ancestry is common to all ages and all 
peoples, and it is an entirely proper and justifiable 
sentiment. We know that man, like other animals, 
possesses the power to transmit to his offspring 
the mental and physical characteristics that have 
been most prominent in himself. Students of social 
science tell us that the children of criminals are 
apt to prove criminals themselves, and other things 
being equal, the man who can trace his descent 
through a dozen generations of honest men is for 
that very reason more likely to prove himself an 
honest man. 

The history of the Allerton family is a strong 
proof of the enduring quality of family traits and 
characteristics, both physical and mental, for we 
find in members of two branches, that have been 
entirely separated for two centuries, the same phys- 
ical appearance and the same mental peculiarities. 
We find in a majority of the family to-day many 
resemblances in personal appearance to their com- 
mon ancestor, and we find still more prominent the 



6 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

same peculiarities of mind and disposition. We are 
proud to recognize the same spirit of honesty and 
independence that led him to cast in his lot with 
the adventurers of New Plymouth, and the same 
broadness of mind and toleration of the opinions 
of others that brought him into conflict with the 
narrow spirit of puritanism. We claim a share of 
his courage and his enterprise and we admit that 
we have also inherited somewhat of his quick tem- 
per, and of his wandering disposition and unsettled 
spirit. The Allertons have ever been wanderers, 
they can point to no one place as the home of 
their family, the same restless spirit that led their 
ancestors up and down upon the earth has ap- 
peared to be always with them, it is only in a 
few rare cases that we find the son continuing to 
dwell where his father dwelt before him ; and this 
fact, while affording another proof of the posses- 
sion of common traits of character, has rendered 
it difficult to collect a complete genealogical record 
of the family. 

The author began the work of collecting mate- 
rial for a family history some ten years since, and 
pursued it in such time as could be spared from 
the practice of his profession, but he soon found 
that another had been for a long time at work in 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 7 

the same field. The late Mead Allerton of Newark, 
Wayne County, New York, after working for 
many years at this task, left at his death a large 
and valuable manuscript, which was placed in the 
author's hands by his widow, "and from which 
many details for this volume were obtained, espe- 
cially in regard to the fourth, fifth and sixth 
generations of the Rhode Island and New York 
branches. Mead Allerton had not been able, how- 
ever, to collect much information about the New 
Jersey branch, and to obtain this has been the 
most ditihcult part of the work, but the author 
believes that he is now able to present a complete 
genealogy of the entire family from 1585 to 1885. 
Where dates later than 1885 have been furnished, 
as in most cases they were, they have been given, 
but no attempt has been made to complete the 
genealogy of a date later than December 31 of 
that year. 

The arrangement of the genealogy which has 
been used is believed to be the least confusing, 
and the one most easily followed in tracing descent 
or relationship. The different generations, counting 
Isaac of the Mayflower as the first, follow each 
other, and each member of the family is distin- 
guished by two numbers ; in the first place they 



8 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

are numbered consecutively from beginning to end, 
and when it becomes necessary to mention any 
member his or her number is always given, so 
that the reader can turn at once to the record ; 
and every member is also distinguished by a num- 
ber indicating the generation to which he belongs. 
Thus if any one wishes to trace Russell Allerton 
of Scituate, Rhode Island, he will find his name 
in the index, and turning to the proper page will 
find him thus numbered, "64 RusselP," he will 
also find a record of his life and that he was the 
son of Roger^ (31), and turning back to 31, he 
will find that Roger^ was the son of John* (13), 
and thus he can trace his descent back to Isaac^. 
In order to keep the volume within the limits 
desired, it has been necessary to make the record 
of each famih^ as brief as possible, and thus the 
author has been compelled to omit many details 
that were interesting and even valuable. No claim 
is made that perfection has been attained, the 
author is conscious of many defects, and no doubt 
errors will be found, but a strong effort has been 
made to exclude every fact that was not supported 
by apparently absolute evidence of its truth. Thus 
all details of the eighth, ninth and tenth genera- 
tions have been obtained from living members of 



0- 



THE ALLERTON FAIMILY. 9 

the family, and as far as possible they have been 
carefully revised and verified. And in preparing- 
the record of the earlier generations much that 
appeared to be and no doubt was true has been 
rejected, because the evidence to absolutely confirm 
it was lacking ; no credence has been given to 
common fame or tradition, and if the author has 
erred at all in this respect it has been on the 
side of strict requirement of proof, and in no case 
has conjecture or imagination been resorted to to 
fill a gap. 

The name oi AUerton is one that is compara- 
tively common in some parts of England, and 
there are several families now in the United States 
who are in no way related to us, being emigrants 
from England themselves or the descendants of such, 
a list of these AUertons will be found at the end 
of the genealogical record. The beauty of the 
name has also caused it to be frequently used by 
novelists and other writers, and it has been occa- 
sionally assumed by persons not belonging to the 
family, some of whom have not been of a char- 
acter calculated to reflect credit on any family. 

Where nearly every one to whom the author 
has applied for information has gladly responded, 
it may seem unfair to mention any in particular, 



lO THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

but while the author takes this opportunity to 
thank all who have in any manner assisted him, 
he feels that the members of the family generally 
ouerht to know the names of those who have 
rendered particular service. Besides Mead Allerton 
to whom the greatest credit is due for many years 
of patient and painstaking research, the author has 
received valuable assistance from the following 
persons : 

Mrs. Jane G. Allerton, of Salem, Ohio. 
James M. Allerton, of Port Jervis, New York. 
Orville H. Allerton, of Newark, New York. 
Mrs. Clara E. Delap, of Osnaburgh, Ohio. 
Charles B. Allerton, of Keelersville, Michigan. 
Ezekiel Allerton, of Roanoke, Indiana. 
Lemira C. Allerton, of Youngstown, Ohio. 
Mrs. James Kynett, of Alliance, Ohio. 
Jasper Tilden, of Jefferson, Wisconsin. 
H. D. Hutson, of Deerfield, Ohio. 

In the matter of inserting portraits the only rule 
followed has been to give as many as possible, and 
a sincere endeavor has been made to make the 
portraits fairly representative of all the branches of 
the family, and of as many generations as possible. 
In justice to himself the author desires to say, 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY, II 

that in giving a space to his own portrait, he has 
yielded to the request of a large proportion of the 
family. And in fact the desires of others have 
been carefully considered in many respects, and 
such changes in the plan or scope of the history 
have from time to time been made, as seemed 
likely to make it satisfactory to the great majority 
of those interested. 

In conclusion the author earnestly requests all 
members of the family and all others into whose 
hands this volume may come, to carefully examine 
it, and if they find any errors or omissions of any 
kind, to notify him at once, as it is his intention 
to print in due time a sheet of additions and 
corrections, that will be sent to all having the 
history for insertion in the same. 

At the end of the volume will be found a few 
sheets of blank paper upon which the record of 
each family can be continued, and it is hoped that 
this will be done in every case. 

WALTER S. ALLERTON. 

New York, Dec, 1888. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 



In reviewing the history of the Allerton family 
the circumstance that first attracts our attention is 
the slow growth in numbers prior to 1800. The 
names of only eighty-three Allertons who were 
born before the opening of the present century are 
mentioned in this volume. This remarkably slow 
increase is accounted for by the fact, that Isaac 
the second, from whom the family is - descended, 
left but one son, Isaac the third ; and he in his 
turn left but two sons, John and Jesse ; and if Jesse 
had other sons than Zachariah they undoubtedly 
perished in the massacre of Wyoming. 

Since 1800 however the family has rapidly 
increased in numbers, until at the present time 
there are at least three hundred persons living 
who are Allertons by birth and lineal descendants 
of Isaac of the Mayflower. 

While they are scattered over the entire country, 
by far the greater number reside in the States of 
New York, Ohio and Michigan, while in New 
England, the original home of the Pilgrims, there 
are now less than a dozen members. 



14 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

For convenience in tracing the history of the 
family the author at an early period of his work 
began to divide them into three branches ; the 
Rhode Island branch, being the descendants of 
John^ ; the New York branch, being the descend- 
ants of Isaac^ ; and the New Jersey branch, being 
the descendants of Zachariah^, 

The Rhode Island bra'nch is now practically 
extinct, there being but one male descendant of 
John^ now living, Henry AUerton, of Lawrence, 
Massachusetts. 

The New York and New Jersey branches are 
about equal in numbers, there being about sev- 
enty male representatives of each now living. The 
majority of the members of the New York branch 
are still residents of that State, while the New 
Jersey branch, though more widely scattered, seems 
to be more numerous in Ohio than in any other 
State. 

The New York branch, which is entitled to 
the honor of being the older and principal branch 
of the family, has always been the most successful, 
and has contained the larger number of men who 
have attained to positions of eminence in profes- 
sional or business life. Some curiosity has been 
shown in regard to the head of the family, and 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 1 5 

it is a fact of some interest that the late Mead 
AUerton of Newark, New York, who first began 
the collection of materials for a family history, was 
himself the head of the Allerton family, his descent 
from Isaac" being direct through the oldest sons 
in every generation. Who is entitled to claim the 
honor at present is a matter of some doubt per- 
haps, but the ordinary rule of succession would 
make his brother. Ransom Allerton, of Manchester, 
Ontario County, New York, the present head ot 
the Allerton family in the United States. 

The history of the Rhode Island branch is very 
brief; they resided in Rhode Island and in Wind- 
ham County, Connecticut, and were generally 
farmers, but many of the sons of this family died 
young and unmarried, others inherited consumption 
from their mothers and died in youth or early 
manhood, until, as has been stated, the branch is 
now practically extinct. 

The New York branch, after residing in Con- 
necticut about fifty years, removed to Dutchess 
county, in New York, and to the county of Greene, 
on the west bank of the Hudson, where many of 
them reside to this day, and from there they grad- 
ually followed the general tendency of settlement 
to the west, and at the present time the most of 



l6 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

them are to be found in central and western New 
York, while many have become residents of the 
north-western States. 

The New Jersey branch has always shown a 
roving and unsettled disposition, their history has 
been the most varied and the most difficult to trace. 
It is certain that Jesse* had at least two other sons 
besides Zachariah", but no traces ot any of their 
descendants have ever been found. There is a 
tradition, which seems to be entitled to acceptance, 
that two sons of Jesse, after removing to New 
Jersey with Zachariah, continued still further into 
the wilderness, and settling in the Wyoming 
valley, were killed with all their families at 
the time of the celebrated massacre. There is no 
mention of the name in any of the accounts 
of the massacre, but this is not conclusive proof 
that they were not there at the time, and in most 
accounts we find the names of several families of 
Athertons among the victims, and this we know 
to have been the most common of the many mistaken 
forms which the family name has often taken. It 
has been very difficult to obtain facts as to names, 
dates, etc., of the members of the New Jersey branch 
of the fifth, sixth and seventh generations, and the 
rule, which has been invariably adhered to, of rejecting 



THE ALLERTON P'AMILY. 1 7 

every item about which' there seemed to be even 
the suspicion of doubt, has rendered it impossible to 
give many details of their lives. But the chain of 
descent has been traced in every case with absolute 
certainty, so that every hving member of the family 
can readily follow his own line back to the common 
ancestor, and can ascertain the exact degree of rela- 
tionship existing between himself and any other 
Allerton. The sons and grandsons of Zachariah 
gradually drifted from New Jersey westward through 
Pennsylvania to north-eastern Ohio, where the 
greater number of his descendants now reside, 
although many of them are found in Michigan, 
Indiana and other western States. 

The great majority of the family are to-day, 
as they have always been, farmers. They have 
never showed a tendency to city life, and very 
few are at present dwelling in any of our large 
cities. Outside of farming the occupation most 
favored has been that of machinist. 

Each of the learned professions has had several 
representatives. The clergymen have been Reuben'', 
Isaac'' and Job D^, of whom only the latter is now 
living. The physicians were Reuben^, Cornelius'', 
Goodwin'' and Cornehus^, all able and successful 
practitioners, but at present there are none living 
engaged in that profession. 



1 8 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

The three lawyers are RusselP, of Scituate, 
Rhode Island, who died in 1815, and James M^, of 
Port Jervis, New York and Walter S.^, of New 
York City, both of whom are now living. 

Members of the family have fought in all the 
wars that have occurred since the landing of the 
Pilgrims, including the old Indian wars, the Revo- 
lution, the war of 1812, the Mexican war and the 
Rebellion. The history of the last war shows that 
besides several who aided the National government 
in civil capacities, many Allertons left their homes 
and went forth to battle and to die for the preser- 
vation of that liberty which their great ancestor 
had done so much to establish. 

The Allerton family has as yet given no great 
names to history, they have never sought office or 
the rewards of political strife, the occupations to 
which they have generally devoted themselves 
have never been those that lead to fame or to 
political preferment, they have been farmers, mer- 
chants or mechanics, and have been content to be 
ofood citizens and honest men. There is no record 
of an Allerton having ever been convicted of a 
felony, and although there have been a few black 
sheep, the whole history of the family is remark- 
ably free from moral blemishes of any kind. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. I9 

Physically, they have always been a hardy and 
vigorous race, and in general long lived, many 
living to be ninety or more, and one, the late 
Samuel W. Allerton, of Newark, New York, being 
ninety-nine years and eight months old at his 
death. In appearance the majority are large framed, 
rather over than under middle height, fair com- 
plexioned with dark hair and eyes, many have 
brown or sandy hair and some blue or gray eyes, 
but few, if any, have been known who were of a 
distinctly blonde type. In youth they are gener- 
ally slender and quick in action, and many have 
been noted for strength and dexterity, but they 
are apt to become quite fieshy in old age. The 
most prominent physical characteristic of the family 
is the shape of the forehead, eyes and nose, this 
can easily be seen by taking a number of portraits 
of members of all branches, and placing cards 
over them in such a manner as to show only the 
upper half of the face, when a remarkable simi- 
larity will be noticed by any one. 

They are a quick tempered race and apt to 
act upon impulse, very decided in both likes and 
dislikes, and usually rather uncommunicative and 
reserved, not very ready to make new friends but 
firm in their attachment to old ones. Many of 



20 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

them have been called eccentric, and a few have 
been regarded, and perhaps justly, as carrying 
their erratic tendencies beyond a proper limit. In 
general they have intermarried with those who 
like themselves were descended from the early 
English settlers of this country, and the family 
has been kept remarkably free from any admixture 
of alien blood. There do not appear to be any 
diseases hereditary in the family, or any physical 
peculiarities other than those already mentioned. 

In religion they are all Protestants and nearly 
all denominations are represented, but probably 
more belong to the Baptists than to any other 
one church. 

In politics they are, with a very few exceptions. 
Republicans.

ISAAC ALLERTON. 



The exact time or place of Isaac Allerton's 
birth is not at present known to his descendants 
in the United States. He probably belonged to 
an old and honorable family of mixed Saxon and 
Danish descent, that had been for many centuries 
located in the south-eastern part of England, many 
representatives of which are still to be found in 
Suffolk and the adjacent counties. He was born 
between the years 1583 and 1585, and resided at 
London for some time prior to removing to 
Holland, in 1609. 

Much speculation has been indulged in as to 
his business before that time, and he has been stated 
with confidence to have been a farmer, a seaman, a 
tailor, and more frequently has been more broadly 
called a merchant. One writer has shrewdly guessed 
that he had no particular business or occupation, 
which is quite possibly the more correct statement, 
since he could not have been more than twenty- 
four years old at the most when he left England. 



22 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

He is generally admitted to have been the 
wealthiest of all the Pilgrims, and is one of the few 
among them to whom Bradford and other contem- 
poraneous writers always give the prefix " Mr.," 
which in those days was used as an index of supe- 
rior family or respectability. He was also one of 
the three upon whom the privilege of citizenship 
was conferred by the city of Leyden, his associates 
in this honor, which was given February 7, 1614, 
being WiUiam Bradford, afterwards Governor of the 
Plymouth colony, and Degory Priest, his brother-in- 
law. He was first married, as we learn from the 
records in the Staathuis or City Hall of Leyden, on 
November 4, 161 1, to Mary Norris, of Newbury, in 
England, and at the sailing of the Pilgrims, he had 
four children, all born in Holland, three of whom, 
Bartholomew, Remember and Mary came over with 
their parents in the Mayflower, while the youngest, 
Sarah, remained behind and came over later with 
her aunt Sarah Priest. 

On the 6th of September, 1620, the Mayflower 
sailed from Plymouth upon her memorable voyage, 
having on board, besides her officers and crew, one 
hundred and one passengers, and among them Isaac 
Allerton, with his wife and three children and one 
servant, John Hooke by name. The voyage, as was 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 23 

natural at that season of the year, was a long and 
stormy one, and disease and death were already at 
work among the over-crowded passengers of the 
little vessel, when on November 9, at break of day 
the sandy hills of Cape Cod became visible upon 
the western horizon. Their original design had been 
to make their settlement near the mouth of the 
Hudson, and accordingly they put about at once 
to the south, but soon found themselves entangled 
in the shoals of that dangerous coast, and being 
all of them, but especially the women and children, 
heartily sick of confinement within the narrow limits 
of the little vessel, the desire to be once more on 
land became too strong to be resisted. The captain 
also, having been bribed by the Dutch West India 
Company not to carry them to the Hudson, declared 
that further progress to the south was impossible 
and putting about once more to the north, they 
doubled the northern extremity of the Cape the next 
day, and came to anchor in Cape Cod harbor to 
ride out a storm. 

This land, upon which they had now decided to 
settle, being in the forty-second degree of latitude, 
was without the territory of the Virginia Company, 
and therefore the charter they held became useless ; 
and some symptoms of faction and of an inclination 



24 THE ALLERTON FAMILY, 

to throw off all authority appearing among the ser- 
vants who had been hired in England, it was 
thought best by the leaders of the Colony that they 
should enter into an association for self government 
and bind themselves to be governed by the will of 
the majority. Accordingly after solemn prayer they 
drew up and signed the famous instrument which 
has ever since been known as the Compact, and 
which has most happily been styled the first of 
American Constitutions. It ran as follows : " In the 
" name of God, Amen. We whose names are under- 
" written ; the loyal subjects of our dread sovereign 
" lord King James, by the grace of God of Great 
" Brittain, France and Ireland, King, Defender of 
" the Faith, &c., having undertaken for the glory of 
" God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and 
" honour of our King and Country, a voyage to 
" plant the first colony in the northern parts of 
" Virginia ; do by these presents solemnly and mutu- 
" ally, in the presence of God and of one another, 
" covenant and combine ourselves together into a 
" civil body politic, for our better ordering and 
" preservation, and furtherance of the ends aforesaid, 
" and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute and frame 
" such just and equal laws and ordinances, acts, 
" constitutions and offices, from time to time, as shall 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 2$ 

" be thought most meet and convenient for the gen- 
" eral good of the Colony, unto which we promise 
" all due obedience. 

" In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed 
" our names at Cape Cod, the eleventh day of No- 
" vember, in the year of the reign of our sovereign 
" lord King James of England, France and Ireland, 
" the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty -fourth. 
" Anno Domini, 1620. " 

Isaac Allerton was the fifth signer of the compact, 
the only names which precede his being those of 
Carver, Bradford, Winslow and Brewster. They 
remained at anchor in Cape Cod Harbor for five 
weeks, during which time the men made many 
excursions to explore the surrounding country, while 
the women were taken on shore to wash the clothing. 
Finally, having selected a place for their settlement, 
on the 2ist day of December, 1620, a date which 
by their act has been rendered one of the land- 
marks of history, they landed at Plymouth, and at 
once set about the erection of a store-house for their 
goods, and dwellings for themselves. But even before 
their landing several of their number had died, and 
although the winter proved to be an unusually mild 
one, it was still far more severe than those to which 
they had been accustomed, and this together with 



26 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

their enfeebled condition after the confinement of 
the voyage and the want of proper food and shelter, 
caused such sickness among the colonists that at 
times there were no more than six or seven of 
them well enough to nurse the sick, and by the 
coming of April, forty-four, or nearly one-half had died, 
and among them were Carver, the first governor, 
and his wife, and Mary the wife of Isaac Allerton, 
who died February 25 th, 1621. While on the 
Mayflower in the harbor of Cape Cod, she had 
been delivered of a child, still-born, and the hard- 
ships and privations of that terrible winter proved 
too much for her strength thus enfeebled. 

The first entry in the records of the Plymouth 
Colony is an incomplete list of " The Meersteads 
and Garden Plottes " assigned to those who came 
out on the Mayflower, at the first division of land. 
Each of these " Garden Plottes " contained one 
"aker." The list and diagram is as follows.

28 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

It will be noticed that the honorable prefix 
" Mr." is here given to Brewster and Allerton only. 

The Street is now called Leyden street and 
leads from the harbor westward. 

It is probable that Isaac Allerton built a house 
on his " Garden Plotte," but if he did he did not 
occupy it during the entire period of his residence 
in Plymouth, for in 1635, he lived at Rocky Nook, 
on Jones' River in Kingston, in a house which he 
afterwards sold " to my well beloved sonne-in-law 
Thomas Cushman," the location of which is still 
pointed out near the celebrated Elder's spring. 

In March the colonists had grave apprehension 
of trouble with the Indians. On the night of the 
twenty-second an attack was expected and watch was 
kept, but there was no appearance of hostility, and 
as the old chronicle says, " The next day, Friday, 
" Captain Standish and Mr. Allerton went venturously 
" to visit King Massasoit, and were received by him 
" after his manner. He gave them 3 or 4 ground- 
" nuts and some tobacco." 

As the result of this visit a treaty of peace 
was concluded, which held good for more than 
fifty years. 

In April, Governor Carver died, and William 
Bradford was then chosen Governor, and Isaac 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY, 29 

Allerton Assistant Governor, a position which he 
held until 1624, and probably longer. 

In September, 162 1, a party of ten, including 
Isaac Allerton, went by water to explore what is 
now the harbor of Boston, and to visit the Indians 
who lived in that vicinity, and on this trip the 
first headland at Nantasket, at the entrance to the 
harbor was called Point Allerton, a name which 
it still retains, although it has sometimes been 
spelled Alderton ; an adjoining hill in the town of 
Hull was also known for many years as Allerton 
Hill. For several years after the landing of the 
colonists Isaac Allerton was engaged, as were all 
the rest, in building houses and barns for shelter, 
in clearing and tilling the soil, and in managing 
with the other leading men, the affairs of the little 
settlement. We find him participating in another 
division of land in the spring of 1624, when seven 
acres, "on the south side of the Brook to the Bay- 
wards," were set off for him. 

In 1626, he married Fear Brewster, the daughter 
of Elder William Brewster, who had come over 
in the ship Ann with her sister Patience, in 1623. 
She was a woman of a pleasing appearance and 
of a pious disposition, as we are told, and she is 
interesting to us as being the mother of that Isaac 



30 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Allerton, the second of the name, from whom the 
Allerton family is descended, She died in 1634. 

In the fall of 1626, Isaac Allerton was sent by 
the colonists to England, to obtain certain supplies 
for them of which they were in great need, and 
to arrange if possible a composition with the 
Adventurers, as those men who had advanced the 
funds for the colony were called. Bradford says 
that he was selected as the agent of the colonists 
in this matter as " being well qualified by education 
and experience, and having the confidence of the 
Merchants of London," and these advantages of 
education and experience in the affairs of the world, 
enabled him to manage the affairs of the colony 
with signal success for a time, but beyond doubt 
they were the natural causes of the disagreements 
which afterward took place. 

In the spring of 1627 he returned with the 
draft of a composition, " drawn by the best counsel 
of law they could get to make it firm." By this 
contract, which was dated at London, November 
15, 1626, the Adventurers sold to the Colony their 
entire interest in the settlement for ^1800, "to be 
" paid at the Royal Exchange, at London, every 
" Michaelmas, in nine annual installments of ;^2oo, 
"each," and it was provided that they were to 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 3 1 

forfeit thirty shillings per week, for every week 
the debt was not paid after it was due. This com- 
position was unanimously sanctioned, and Isaac 
Allerton was at once sent back to England with full 
authority to ratify and confirm it. 

At the same time the entire trade of the colony 
for a period of six years, was bound to William 
Bradford, Edward Winslow, Isaac Allerton, and 
several others, in consideration of their assuming 
the entire indebtedness, amounting in all to about 
i^2400, and in addition they were to pay the colony 
£^0 per annum in hoes and shoes. 

Having satisfactorily arranged the composition 
with the Adventurers and paid them their first 
installment of iJ"200, and having paid other debts, 
Isaac Allerton returned to Plymouth in the spring 
of 1628, bringing with him a supply of goods, and 
also a patent for a trading station on the Kennebec, 
but when they came to compare the patent with 
the region to which it applied, they found it *' so 
strait and ill bounded," that he was again sent to 
England, for the third time, to obtain the enlarge- 
ment and correction of this patent, and also a 
new patent for Plymouth, and to arrange for the 
removal of the remainder of the church at Leyden. 
He was compelled to return to Plymouth without 



32 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

accomplishing all he had been desired to do, but 
being immediately sent back again, in August, 1629, 
he had better success, and obtained the desired 
patent January 29, 1630. He went to England 
several times after this on business for the colonists 
or for himself, crossing the ocean in all seven times. 
About this time, 1630, began his trouble with 
the colonists, or rather with Governor Bradford, 
the true cause of which it is difficult to ascertain, 
and with a full account of which I shall not weary 
the reader. Bradford's version can be found, writ- 
ten with all the energy and rancour of his narrow 
and prejudiced mind, in the pages of his famous 
journal, but it is a series of complaints rather than 
a statement of facts, and evidently fails to state 
the true grounds of the disagreement. We might 
offset the complainings of Bradford with the state- 
ments of those who were better able to know the 
true value of Isaac Allerton's services to the 
colony ; thus James Sherley, one ol the Adventurers 
and a steadfast friend of the colonists, writes, 
March 8, 1629, " He hath been a truly honest 
" friend to you all, either there or here. And if 
" any do, as I know some of them are apt to speak 
" ill of him, believe them not." And again on 
March 19, 1629, he writes, in a letter signed also 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 33 

by Timothy Hatherly, a friend of the colonists at 
London, " But the Lord so blessed his labours 
" (even beyond expectation in these evil days), as 
" he obtained the love and favor of great men in 
" repute and place, he got granted all Mr. Winslow 
"desired in his letters to me and more also." 
Many similar statements might be quoted from 
letters and writings of other friends to the colony 
in England, while on the other hand Bradford 
complains bitterly that too much money had been 
expended in obtaining a charter, and that he had 
sometimes endeavored to further his own interests 
rather than those of the colony. But those who 
care to examine into the merits will inevitably 
come to the conclusion reached by a painstaking 
and impartial historian, that " As an agent Mr. 
" AUerton appears to have been indefatigable in his 
"attempts to promote the interests of his employers. 
" He was a person of uncommon activity, address 
" and enterprise." 

The true cause however of this difficulty with 
the colonists and with Bradford in particular, is 
undoubtedly to be found in the fact, that he was 
in mind, education and practice far more liberal 
than they, and that while his associations in England 
with the merchants of London, and the officers of 



34 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

the court and government tended to still further 
broaden and liberalize his views, their seclusion in 
the forests and among the dangers of the little 
settlement at Plymouth was most admirably calcu- 
lated to make still narrower and more bigoted 
natures that were already inclined to the most 
puritanical of views. 

We know that the church at Leyden took 
offence at the liberal tendencies of Isaac AUerton, 
that the colonists were greatly offended at his 
apparently innocent mistake in employing the 
notorious Morton of Merry Mount as his secretary, 
although in these days, Morton would almost pass 
for a saint, and when he became known as a 
firm friend of Roger Williams, and was found to 
have sheltered and protected many of the oppressed 
and persecuted Quakers, the cup of his iniquity 
was indeed full to the minds of the colonists, and 
we are not surprised to hear that about 1636, he left 
Massachusetts in consequence of the religious intol- 
erance of the people, and went to New Amsterdam 
to live. Like most of his descendants, Isaac AUerton, 
though a just and fair minded man, was of a quick 
temper, apt to resent an affront, and impetuous in 
acting upon his impulses, and therefore, when once 
a difference had arisen between him and a majority 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 35 

ot the Plymouth colonists, who were no doubt 
well represented by their narrow and dogmatic 
governor, there was little possibility of any recon- 
ciliation, even had there been more in common in 
their natures and their ways of life and thought. 
Moreover he had given great offence by embark- 
ing extensively in business which conflicted in many 
ways with the industries of the colony. He was 
admittedly the first merchant of New England, and 
the founder of the coasting trade and the fishing 
industry. We find early mention of vessels owned 
by him, and he was the first to welcome Winthrop 
and his Company to the shores of the New World. 
Winthrop says in his journal, under date of June 
12, 1630, "About four in the morning we were 
" near our port, we shot off two pieces of ordinance 
" and sent our skiff to Mr. Pierce (which lay in 

" the harbor and had been there days before) ; 

"about an hour after Mr. Allerton came on board 
"us in a shallop as he was sailing to Pemaquid." 
In 1632 he attempted to set up a rival trading 
station on the Kennebec, and also to establish one 
on the Penobscot, but both these enterprises were 
unsuccessful, the latter station being broken up by 
the French in 1634. In 1633, Winthrop records 
that he fished wath light boats at Marble Harbor, 



36 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

and he is justly regarded as the founder of Mar- 
blehead, for he made that place the headquarters 
of his fishing fleet, built a large warehouse, and 
resided there a great part of the time with his 
son-in-law Moses Maverick, until his liberal views 
again brought him into trouble with the General 
Court, as they had previously done with his old 
associates at Plymouth, and he was given " leave to 
depart from Marblehead." 

That he was liberal in other matters as well as 
in religion, we know from the following extract from 
the records, under date of December 2, 1633 : 
" Whereas Mr. Will. Bradford was appointed m the 
" behalf of the Court to enter upon the estate of 
" Godbert Godbertson and Zarah his wife, and to 
*' discharge the debts of the said Godbert so far 
" as his estate will make good. And whereas the 
" greatest part of his debts are owing to Mr. 
" Isaack AUerton of Plym., Mercht., late brother ol 
" the said Zarah. The said Isaack hath given leave 
" to all other his creditors to be fully discharged 
" before he receives any thing of his particular debts 
" to himself, desiring rather to lose all than other 
" men should lose any." 

But about this time misfortunes began to come 
thick and heavy upon him. In 1634 his trading 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 37 

house at Machias was taken by the French and 
Indians and destroyed by fire with all its contents. 
In February of the same year, " Mr. Cradock's 
" house at Marblehead was burnt down about 
" midnight, there being in it Mr. AUerton and many 
" fishermen whom he employed that season." The 
same year, returnmg from a trading voyage to 
Port Royal, " his pinace was cast away and entirely 
lost;" and on December 12, 1634, his wife died at 
Plymouth. 

In 1635 his misfortunes still continued. In March, 
he was notified to leave Marblehead on account of 
his religious views, and in May he transferred all 
his houses, buildings and stages for curing fish at 
that place to his son-in-law, Moses Maverick. In 
August, a bark belonging to him, which had been 
hired to transport Rev. Mr. Avery and his family, 
from Newbury to Marblehead, was lost at Cape 
Anne, and twenty-one persons perished, and in 1636, 
while returning from Penobscot, he was himself 
shipwrecked. 

From 1636 to 1646, he resided most of the time 
at New Amsterdam, where he was engaged in the 
coasting and tobacco trades, having a warehouse 
on the East River, somewhere near where the foot 
of Maiden Lane now is. That his intelligence and 



38 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

enterprise were thoroughly appreciated by the 
Dutch settlers is shown by the circumstance, that 
when, in 1643, a Council of eight were chosen from 
among the citizens, nominally to assist Governor 
Kieft, but in reality to manage him, Isaac Allerton 
was one of the number. While living at New 
Amsterdam, however, he made many voyages to 
Virginia and even to the West Indies, and frequently 
visited the New England Colonies ; and notwith- 
standing the treatment he had received he often 
rendered good service to such residents of the 
Massachusetts settlement as came in his way. Thus 
Winthrop writes, in 1643: "Three ministers which 
" were sent to Virginia were wrecked on Long Island ; 
" Mr. Allerton, of New Haven, being there took 
" great pains and care of them, and procured them 
" a very good pinace and all things necessary." 

And in a letter from one John Haynes to Gov- 
ernor Winthrop, it is stated, " There is late news by 
" a vessel that came to the Dutch and from thence 
" to New Haven, by Mr. Allerton. The substance 
" thus: that there has been a great battle between 
" the King and Parliament forces." 

In 1644, he was wrecked at Scituate, on his way 
from New Haven to the Colonies, and at this time 
we find the first mention of his third wife. The date 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 39 

ot this marriage is not known nor the surname 
and residence of his wife ; her first name was 
Johanna, and he is generally thought to have 
married her at New Haven, but I am inclined to 
think that she came more probably from Marble- 
head or Salem. She appears to have been a woman 
of a most excellent character, and she outlived her 
husband many years. At the time of this marriage 
Isaac AUerton must have been nearly sixty years 
of age and the union proved to be a childless one. 

About 1647, Isaac AUerton became a permanent 
resident of New Haven, and at that place he lived 
the remainder of his life, although making occa- 
sional trips to New Amsterdam and Massachusetts. 
He built himself a "grand house on the Creek 
with Four Porches," on a home lot of two acres, 
which was situated about where Union street now 
is, just south of Cherry street. 

An old plan of New Haven in 1748, shows the 
house of Simon Eyres, a descendent of his in this 
location, and mentions Isaac AUerton as the original 
owner. When he lived there the house stood on 
a gentle declivity sloping down to the harbor in 
front and to the creek on the west, affording a 
view of the waters of the Sound even to the coast 
of Long Island, and it must have been just such 



40 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

a home as would be most pleasant for the last years 
of one who had been so long a follower of the seas. 

We find many mentions of Captain Isaac Allerton, 
as he is there called, in the old records of New Haven. 

On March lo, 1647, the names of the people as 
they were seated in the meeting house were put 
upon record, and we find "Thomas Nash, Mr. 
Allerton and Bro. Perry," assigned to " the second 
seat of the cross seats at the end." It is to be 
noticed that as usual he is here given the honor- 
able prefix " Mr." 

The following account of a little difficulty which 
Mrs. Allerton had with the officials of the town, 
during her husband's absence upon one of his 
voyages, shows that human nature, especially as it 
develops itself in petty officers, was the same then 
as now. At a Court held at New Haven, August 
6, 1650, "Mr Allerton's fence was complained of. 
" Jno. Cooper and the Marshall informed the Court 
" that Mrs. Allerton hath had notice of it three 
" times and yet the fence is not mended, but two 
" places remain defective as John Cooper says." The 
Court ordered that Mr. Allerton pay two shillings 
for the two defective places, each time they have 
so warned. The fence does not appear to have been 
mended, for the same report is repeated from one 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 4 1 

court to another, and an additional fine of two 
shillings ordered each time, until December, when 
" Mr. Evans saith Mrs. AUerton desired him to 
" acquaint the Court with the case." The expla- 
nation being that there had been a long misunder- 
standing between her and John Cooper about the 
location of the fence complained of. The Court 
said they " must rest on John Cooper's report be- 
" cause he is in a public trust in this matter of 
" fence, and therefore it is ordered that Mrs. Allerton 
"pay for the two defects, two shillings." 

The misfortunes which had pressed so thickly 
upon him during the last years of his residence 
in Massachusetts, as to gain for him the name of 
the " unlucky," do not appear to have entirely 
deserted him yet, for we find the following record 
under date of November 2, 1652 : " Robert Paine 
" and William Meaker were complained of for absence 
" from training. The Court was informed that Mr. 
" Allerton that morning sent to Goodyears to get 
" them free because of some urgent occasion about 
" his vessel. The Court considering that he did 
" send to ask leave, and it was upon that occasion, 
** and the time the vessel hath lain, and the afflicted 
" state of Mr. Allerton otherwise, did for this time 
" pass it over without a fine." 



42 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Isaac Allerton was now approaching the three- 
score years and ten, which are the generally accepted 
limit of human existence ; his life had been one of 
hardship, activity and exposure ; his son Isaac was 
now grown to manhood, and able to manage in 
great part the extensive, although not very suc- 
cessful business in which he had been so long 
engaged, and for the last few years of his life he 
seems to have resided most of the time quietly in 
his house upon the Bay. 

He died about the beginning of the year 1659, 
being then in all probability nearly seventy-five 
years old. He was undoubtedly buried in the old 
Burying Ground at New Haven, occupying the 
square in the very heart of the present city, upon 
which stands the old State House and three churches. 
No monument or grave-stone has ever been found, 
nor is there any record of one being among those 
that were removed to the new Cemetery. At 
that time grave-stones were not made in this country, 
and the trouble and expense of importing them 
was so great that but few of durable material were 
used. But there can be little or no doubt that 
the dust of one of the Pilgrim Fathers reposes 
beneath the Elms of New Haven's public square. 
An Inventory of his estate, taken February 12, 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 43 

1659, was presented to the Court April 5, 1659. 
" Mrs. AUerton being asked if there was any Will 
" by her husband, answered there was, but she 
"thought her son had it with him, who was now 
"gone from home." On July 5, his son, having 
returned, presented the Will, but the estate being 
badly insolvent the business was referred to the 
Court of Magistrates in October. At that Court 
the writing presented as the last Will and Testament 
of Isaac AUerton, although informal and without 
date, was sworn to by John Harriman and Edward 
Preston, the subscribing witnesses, as sealed and 
subscribed by Mr. AUerton deceased, "whUst he 
" had the use of his understanding and memory in 
" a competent degree." 

This Will was little else than a few memoranda 
of debts due to him, which he desired his son 
Isaac and his wife to receive and pay out to his 
creditors as far as they would go, and it is only 
valuable to us as showing the nature and the 
extent of his business. It begins thus, " An account 
" of the debts due at the Dutch," meaning at New 
Amsterdam. 

Among the debts are, " 700 guilders by Tho. 
" Hall by arbitration of Captain Willett and Augustus 
" Harman, about Captain Scarlet which I paid 



44 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

" out ;" " 900 guilders from John Peterson the Bore, 
" as by George Woolseys book will appear." One 
item which helps us to fix the date of this Will 
approximately is a memorandum of a sum owing 
him from Henry Brassen, for rent for eighteen 
months from October 1656, to the last of May 1658, 
for three rooms for 3 guilders a week. After the 
clause constituting his son and wife trustees, he 
adds, as if it was an after-thought, a memorandum 
of "a parcel of book lace in Captain Willett's 
hands 1300 and odd Guilders." Next to this is the 
place of the seal, and it concludes with these two 
sentences : " My Brother Brewster owes me four 
'* score pounds and odd, as the obligations appear." 
" Besides all my debts in Delaware Bay and Vir- 
" ginia, which in my books will appear, and in 
" Barbadoes what he can get." 

ISAAC ALLERTON, Senior." 

His son, Isaac Allerton the second, purchased from 
the creditors his father's dwelling house, orchard 
and barn, with two acres of meadow, and gave it 
to his step-mother for use during her life. She 
occupied it until her death in 1682, when it passed 
to Mrs. Eyres, the daughter of Isaac the second, 
and it was finally torn down in 1740. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 45 

It was in this house that the regicide Judges 
Whalley and GofTe found temporary shelter and 
conceahnent in 1661. Stiles, in his History of the 
Regicide Judges, says that they were protected by 
Mrs. Eyres, but in this he is in error, for, having 
been born in 1653, she was but eight years old at 
the time. 

It was Mrs. Johanna Allerton, the widow of 
Isaac Allerton of the Mayflower, and her daughter- 
in-law, Elizabeth i\llerton, who received and shel- 
tered the judges. 

No portrait of Isaac Allerton has come down 
to us, but he is said to have been slightly above 
the average height, of a spare but muscular frame, 
with dark hair and beard, a clear complexion and 
strongly marked features, a good looking rather 
than a handsome man. In the great majority of 
his descendants there can be noticed a great sim- 
ilarity of development in the upper portion of the 
head and lace, more especially noticeable in the 
forehead, eyes and nose, and there can be no 
doubt that these physical marks, together with 
certain well defined traits of character, have 
descended to us from our common ancestor. He 
was superior to all of his associates on the May- 
flower, except possibly Winslow, and one or two 



46 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

others, in education, and superior to all of them 
in knowledge of the world and familiarity with 
business, and as his experience in these matters 
was so much greater, his mental horizon was far 
wider and his views more liberal and more toler- 
ant of the opinions of others. The only wonder 
is that he was able to agree with them as long 
as he did. The services which he rendered to 
the Colony have been fully appreciated by a few 
careful historians only ; poetry and romance have 
combined to spread the fame of Standish the sol- 
dier, or of Alden the clerk, while the record of 
AUerton's work is buried in the dusty recesses of 
English offices, but had there been no Standish 
among the Colonists there could have been found 
others as competent to battle with the Indians, 
while it is hardly possible that any man among 
them could have accomplished all that Isaac 
Allerton did in London, and it is not too much 
to say that the very existence of the Plymouth 
Colony depended for a time upon the success of 
his negotiations there. 

For two centuries and a third the dust of the 
Pilgrim leader has slumbered beneath the elms of 
New Haven, but his memory is fresh to-day and 
will always endure, not only in the hearts of his 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 47 

descendants but in common with his heroic com- 
panions of the Mayflower, his name will be for- 
ever cherished by the entire people of that mighty 
nation, the corner-stone of whose foundations was 
so deeply and so enduringly laid by the Pilgrims 
of Plymouth. 



THE SECOND GENERATION. 



1. Isaac Allerton, of the Mayflower, had five 

children, 

2. I. Bartholomew^, by his first wife Mary Norris, 

of Newbury, in England, born in Holland 
about 1612; he came over on the Mayflower 
with his parents, and was a resident of 
Plymouth in 1627, at the division among 
the settlers of the cattle brought from 
England, but shortly afterwards he accom- 
panied his father to London, where he 
married and had children, but he never 
returned to America, and so far as is known 
no descendant of his has ever been found 
in this country. 

3. II. Remember^, also by his first wife Mary 

Norris, born in Holland in 1614 ; she also 
came over in the Mayflower, and was living 
in 1627, but probably died soon after, 
unmarried. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 49 

Gov. Bradford sa)'s that she married 
Moses Maverick of Salem, but he has con- 
founded her with her younger sister Sarah. 

4. III. Mary2, also by his first wife, born in 

Holland in June, 1616, came over in the 
Mayflower; was married in 1636 to Thomas 
Cushman, and from this marriage came the 
Cushman family of Massachusetts. She died 
in 1699, the last survivor of the Pilgrims 
of the Mayflower. 

5. IV. Sarah 3, also by his first wife, born in 

Holland in January, 1618; she did not come 
over in the Mayflower with her parents, 
but followed them soon after in the care 
of her aunt Sarah, the wife of Degory 
Priest, who afterwards married Mr. God- 
bertson. She married, in 1637, Moses 
Maverick, of Marblehead, had a large 
family of children, and died about 1655 
or 1656. 

6. V. ISAAC^, from whom the AUerton family is 

descended, was the son of Isaac^ by his 
second wife. Fear Brewster ; he was born 
in Plymouth, in 1630, and graduated from 
Harvard College in 1650. He accompanied 
his father after that on his vo)^ages 



50 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

between Plymouth, New Haven and New 
Amsterdam, and was associated with him 
in the coasting business. After his father's 
death in 1659, he purchased from the cred- 
itors of his estate, the dwelling-house, 
orchard and barn, with two acres of mead- 
ow, and in the New Haven Records we 
find a deed recorded, dated October 4th, 
1660, by which he conveys to his " Mother- 
" in-law, Mrs. Johanna Allerton, the house 
" that she now dwells in at New Haven, 
" with all the furniture in it and the lands 
" and appurtenances belonging to it, to 
" hold and enjoy during the term of her 
" life, and afterward to return into the 
" possession of his daughter Elizabeth 
" Allerton and her heirs, and in case of 
" her dyeing without issue, then to return 
" to him the first donor, and his heirs and 
" executors without intermission." 

To this deed after it was recorded was 
added on the margin of the book the 
following " true record " of a postscript, 
" This deed, though never witnessed when 
" granted, I do hereby confirm to all 
" intents and purposes as if it had been 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 5 1 

" authenticall}' witnessed, and so sign and 
" seal the same in presence of 

John Salmon, 
" March 10. Willl\m Corfield. 

" 1682-3. ISAAC ALLERTON." 

During the period intervening between 
the execution of this deed in 1660, and 
the confirmation in 1683, he resided most 
if not all of the time, in Northumberland 
County, Virginia, where a daughter of his 
married Hancock Lee, seventh son of Col. 
Richard Lee. 

His business took him upon frequent 
voyages, upon one of which he is said to 
have visited England, and while upon a 
voyage to the West Indies about the year 
1690, he is generally believed to have 
died and been buried at sea, and it is 
said that his son-in-law, Simon Eyres, who 
was associated with him in business, died 
at the same time. He was married prob- 
ably in 1652, but little is known of his 
wife except that her first name was 
Elizabeth. He was a man of enterprise 



52 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

and ability and generally successful in busi- 
ness, but from boyhood a wanderer upon 
sea and land, having no settled habitation 
and consequently leaving but few records 
of his life for the information of his 
descendants. 

Besides these Isaac^ had at least two 
other children, both of whom, however, 
died in infancy.

THE THIRD GENERATION. 



ISAAC^ (6) had three children. 

7. I. Elizabeth^, born at New Haven, September 

27, 1653. She married for her first husband, 
December 23, 1675, Benjamin Starr, who 
died in 1678, leaving one child, Allerton 
Starr, born January 6, 1677. For her second 
husband, she married, July 22, 1679, Simon 
Eyres or Heyres, a sea captain, by whom 
she had several children. 

8. II. LsAAC^, born at New Haven, June 11, 1655. 

He accompanied his father to Virginia when 
a child, but returned to New Haven about 
1683, and resided there, and at Norwich 
in the same State, during the remainder of 
his life, following his son, John-*, to Coven- 
try, Rhode Island, shortly before his death, 
the exact date of which is not known. 
He was a farmer and also a dealer in the 
products of the country, a quiet business 
man, taking but little part in public affairs, 
but serving with credit in the Indian wars. 



54 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

But few details of his life have come down 
to us ; the name of his wife is not definitely 
known, nor can we say with any certainty 
how many children he had. Besides John^ 
and Jesse^, who grew to manhood, married 
and left descendants, he undoubtedly had 
another son, Isaac, who died young and 
unmarried, as well as several daughters. 
9. III. A Daughter, whose name is at present 
unknown, as well as the date of her birth, 
although it was not far from 1660. She 
married Hancock Lee, the son of Col. Richard 
Lee, of Virginia. 



THE FOURTH GENERATION. 



ISAAC^ (8) had children as follows : 

10. I. John*, born at New Haven about 1685. 

In early manhood he removed to Norwich 
with his parents, and from there he went 
to Coventry in Rhode Island, where he 
had a farm and also dealt largely in prod- 
uce, and was widely known as an 
energetic business man ; but like his father 
he lived quietly and left but few records 
for the information of his descendants. 
He had a large family, and his wife, whose 
maiden name is unknown, survived him 
many years, and removed with a daughter, 
who married a man named Sweet, to the 
State of New York. He died at Coventry 
about the middle of the eighteenth century. 

11. II. Jesse*, born at New Haven, in 1686 or 

1687. In him the roving disposition of the 
family, which had been dormant for two 
generations, re-asserts itself, and it has ever 
been a prominent characteristic of his 



56 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

descendants. He married in early life and 
lived in various parts of Connecticut and 
Massachusetts ; one account states that he 
died in the latter, while another states that 
he went to New Jersey with his son 
Zachariah and died there at an advanced 
age. He undoubtedly had a comparatively 
large family, but of his daughters abso- 
lutely nothing is known, and indeed no 
attempt has been made to trace the female 
members of the fourth and fifth genera- 
tions. The tradition that several of his 
sons were victims of the Wyoming massacre 
is given elsewhere in this volume. 
12. III. Isaac*, born at New Haven, about 1690. 
Died young and unmarried. 



THE FIFTH GENERATION. 



John* (io) had eight children. 
13. I. LsAAC^, born at Norwich, Connecticut, in 
1724. But little is known with certainty of 
his early years, but after his marriage to 
Lucy Spaulding, about 1745, he lived at 
Canterbury and Plainfield, and followed the 
business of builder as well as being a farmer. 
In appearance he was a tall and robust man, 
and had considerable local fame as an athlete, 
until he sustained an injury to one of his 
legs while building a bridge, from the effects 
of which he never entirely recovered. Prior 
to the War of the Revolution he was quite 
wealthy, but having shown his devotion to 
the continental cause by taking the paper 
money of the provinces in exchange for 
produce and supplies furnished to the troops 
to a large amount, he eventually lost the 
greater part of his property. He removed 
to Amenia, in Dutchess County, New York, 
in 1792, and died there December 26, 1807. 



58 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

During- his lifetime he possessed several 
mementoes of the Mayflower and of the 
earlier years of the Plymouth Colony, among 
others a broad-axe which had been used to 
hew the timbers for the first house built 
by the Colonists, and a fuzee-gun taken in 
battle from an Indian warrior, but unfortu- 
nately since his death these relics have been 
lost. His wife survived him and died in 
1813, aged 86 years, and they are both 
buried in the Cemetery at Amenia. 

14. II. JoHN^, born at Norwich, Connecticut, about 

1728. He was a farmer and also a cooper. 
He resided at Coventry, Rhode Island, where 
he married a widow named Rose Cooper, 
whose maiden name was Burlingame, by 
whom he had eight children. He injured 
one of his fingers while placing a back-log 
upon an old fashioned wood fire, from which 
blood poisoning resulted, and he died at 
the age of 48 years. He was buried in the 
family grave-yard on his farm at Coventry. 

15. III. Elizabeth^, born at Norwich, in 1730, died 

young. 

16. IV. Esther^, born at Norwich, in 1733. 

17. V. Mary^, born at Norwich, in 1736. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 59 

18. VI. A SON^ born at Norwich, in 1739, died 

in infancy. 

19. VI T. Anna^ born at Norwich, in 1742. 

20. VIII. Sarah^, born at Norwich, in 1746. 

Jesse* (11) had one child, besides others 
of whom we have no record. 

21. I. ZachariahS, born in Massachusetts, about 

1730, he removed to New Jersey, and was 
twice married ; by his first wife he had 
several daughters, of whom nothing is 
known, and by his second wife six sons 
and one daughter. It is said that he went 
to Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, 
after the close of the Revolutionary War, 
in which he served in the Continental Army, 
and died there about the year 1800. 



THE SIXTH GENERATION. 



Isaac ^ (13) had six children. 
22. I. Jonathan^, born at Plainfield, Connecticut, 
September 15, 1746. His early life was 
passed on his father's farm, where he ob- 
tained a practical knowledge of farming 
as there practiced, and also of his father's 
trade of builder and house joiner. He also 
taught school in winter, and for several years 
he was so engaged at Amenia, in Dutchess 
County, New York, where, September 17, 
1772, he married Bathsheba Mead, daughter 
of Joshua Mead. He was well educated for 
those days and an excellent penman, being 
much in demand to draw contracts, deeds, 
and similar papers. He served in the War 
of the Revolution until compelled by sick- 
ness to return home, and evidently shared 
in his father's confidence in the Continental 
currency, for we are told that he sold his 
interest and that of his mother-in-law, in 
the homestead farm for $2,000, and took 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 6l 

his pay in that money, by which he lost 
nearly his entire property. In 1783, in com- 
pany with others of his fellow townsmen, he 
purchased a tract of land, known as the 
Van Schaick patent, in the town of Cairo, 
in Greene County, New York, and removed 
there with his family. Here he taught 
school for several winters, and after filling 
a prominent place in the affairs of the 
little settlement for many years, he died 
August 10, 1806. His wife survived him 
for a long time, and died July 4, 1838, aged 
84 years, and was buried beside him in the 
family grave-yard on the farm. 
23. n. David**, born at Canterbury, Connecticut, 
February 14, 1750. He was a farmer all 
his life, a man of a strong religious tem- 
perament and a most kindly disposition. He 
resided until manhood at Canterbury, where 
he was married about 1775, to Janet Mont- 
gomery, of Rhode Island, a relative of 
General Richard Montgomery. About the 
year 1785 he removed to Amenia, Dutchess 
County, New York, where he resided about 
ten years, and then moved again to Madison

as a physician and surgeon. He resided at 
Amenia, Dutchess County, New York, and 
during the War of the Revolution he served 
as a Surgeon in the Army of the Colonies, 
in which capacity he was present at the

Burgoyne. He married, September i, 1779,
