PREFACE. 



Mr. Samuel Waters Allerton, of Chicago, Illinois, in issuing 
this revised edition of the "Allerton Family," does not intend to 
detract from the great credit to be given Mr. Walter S. Allerton for 
his publication of 1888, but simply to add facts which have been 
found since that time, and to correct errors which almost invariably 
occur in Genealogies through incorrect family records thought to be 
true when published, but afterward found otherwise. 

In the preface to the edition of 1888 Mr. Walter S. Allerton says, 
in part: 

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 crim- 
inals 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 endur- 
ing 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 physical appearance and the same 
mental peculiarities. We find in a majority of the family to-day many 
resemblances in personal appearance to their common ancestor, and 
we find still more prominent the same peculiarities of mind and dis-

position. 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 enter- 
prise, and we admit that we have also inherited somewhat of his quick 
temper 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 an- 
cestors up and down upon the earth has appeared 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 possession of common traits of char- 
acter, has rendered it difficult to collect a complete genealogical record 
of the family. 

The author began the work of collecting material 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 an- 
other had been for a long time at work in 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, especially 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 difficult part of the work. 

The name of Allerton is one that is comparatively 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 descendants of such, — a list of these Allertons 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, 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 7 

and it has also been occasionally assumed by persons not belonging 
to the family, some of whom have not been of a character calculated 
to reflect credit on any family. 

Where nearly every one to whom the author has applied for in- 
formation has gladly responded, it may seem unfair to mention any in 
particular, 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 ought to know the names of those who have ren- 
dered 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. 
Jasper Tilden, of Jefferson, Wisconsin. 
Mrs. James Kynett, of Alliance, Ohio. 
H. D. Hutson, of Deerfield, Ohio. 

Walter S. Allerton. 
New York, December, 1888. 

Up to the present time some facts concerning the early generations 
have not been found in town, church or probate records, and for that 
reason have been questioned, but a careful study of all the facts attest 
the statement that, in the main, they are undoubtedly true. Reference 
is made in this connection to the Appendix added to this edition. 

Mr. Mead Allerton did not keep a record of the authority from 
which he derived his information but, when of sufficient character to 
satisfy him, the simple statement of facts was made. III. these early 
generations Mr. Walter S. Allerton merely completed his work. In 



8 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

the later generations, with few exceptions, this edition is practically 
a reprint of that of 1888, so ably compiled by the author. 

The arrangement of families has been materially changed and in 
order that reference may be quickly made the following suggestions 
are offered, viz.: 

The figures directly preceding and following each name indicate 
the number of the child in the family and the generation, the marginal 
number is the general number. 

With the head of each family is shown his marginal number, 
below you find his children, turn back where his marginal number 
shows him as a child and you find his parents. Note the marginal 
number against any one of his children, turn forward to where that 
number appears as the head of a family, and there you will find that 
child's children. 

This edition of the Allerton Family is published with the knowl- 
edge and consent of Mr. Walter S. Allerton, who has also assisted in 
its preparation. The major portion is a reprint of the first edition. 
It is hoped that each family will enter the later records of their in- 
dividual family on the blank pages at the end of the volume.

THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 



In reviewing the history of the Allerton Family one very marked 
feature which arrests our attention is the slow growth, in numbers, 
prior to about the year 1750. 

Isaac 1 , of the Mayflower, left but one son who remained in New 
England, viz.: Isaac 2 , and he in turn left Isaac 3 , born in New Haven, 
Conn., and Willoughby 3 , born in Virginia. 

The Virginia line is not carried forward, in detail, although proper 
reference is made to it, for the reason that, as early as 1760, the male 
line became extinct. This line is not important, therefore, to later 
generations of Allertons. 

Isaac 3 born in New Haven in 1655 thus becomes the progenitor of 
all Allertons of the later generations. 

Since 1750 the family has largely increased in numbers, and at the 
present time there are several hundred persons living who are Allertons 
by birth and lineal descendants of Isaac of the Mayflower. 

His descendants may be said to embrace three branches; the Rhode 
Island branch, being the descendants of John 5 ; the New York branch, 
being the descendants of Isaac 5 , and the New Jersey branch, being 
the descendants of Zachariah 5 . 

The history of the Rhode Island branch is very brief; they resided 
in Rhode Island and in Windham County, Connecticut, and were gen- 
erally farmers, but many of the sons of this family died young and 
unmarried. The branch is now practically extinct, there being only 
one male descendant of John 5 now known to be living. 



10 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

The New York branch, after residing in Connecticut 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 gradually followed the general ten- 
dency of settlement to the west, and while they are scattered over the 
entire country, by far the greater number reside in the States of New 
York, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois; while in New England, the original 
home of the Pilgrims, there are now less than a dozen members. 

This 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 professional or business life. 

The New Jersey branch has always shown a roving and unsettled 
disposition, their history has been the most varied and the most diffi- 
cult to trace. It is certain that Jesse 4 had at least two other sons be- 
sides Zachariah 5 , but no trace of any of their descendants have ever 
been found. There is a tradition, which seems to be entitled to accept- 
ance, 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 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 living 
member of the family can readily follow his own line back to the com- 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 11 

mon ancestor, and can ascertain the exact degree of relationship 
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 num- 
ber 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 7 , Isaac 7 and Job D. 9 , of whom 
only the latter is now living. The physicians were Reuben 6 , 
Cornelius 7 , Goodwin 7 and Cornelius 8 , all able and successful prac- 
titioners. 

The three lawyers are Russell 7 , of Scituate, Rhode Island, who 
died in 1815, and James M. 8 , of Port Jervis, New York, and Walter 
S. 9 , 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 Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican war and the 
Rebellion — thus showing their willingness to go forth to battle for 
the defense and preservation of that liberty which their great ances- 
tor had done so much to establish. History also shows that many 
Allertons served the Colonies and Nation in civil capacities. 

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, merchants or mechanics, and have been content to 
be good citizens and honest men. The whole history of the family is 
remarkably free from moral blemishes. 

Physically, they have always been a hardy and vigorous race, and 



12 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

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 complex- 
ioned 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 generally slender and 
quick of action, and many have been noted for strength and dexterity, 
but they are apt to become quite fleshy in old age. The most prom- 
inent 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 
similarity 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 uncommu- 
nicative and reserved, not very ready to make new friends but firm in 
their attachment to old ones. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 



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 Hol- 
land, in 1609. It is said, however, that he was about twenty-six years 
old when he went to Holland and about thirty-seven when he came to 
Plymouth. The records of St. Dionis Backchurch, London, give the 
marriage of Edward Allerton, of that parish, to Rose Davis, of St. 
Peter's, Cornhill, 14 February, 1579-80. Edward died in 1590. Rose 
survived him six years and died in 1596. Possibly they were the par- 
ents of Isaac Allerton and his sister Sarah. 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 contemporaneous writers 
always give the prefix "Mr.", which in those days was used as an 
index of superior 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 
5, 1614, being William Bradford, afterwards Governor of the Ply- 
mouth 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 



14 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Leyden, on November 4, 1611, to Mary Norris, of Newbury, in Eng- 
land. The witnesses to this marriage were Edward Southworth, 
Richard Masterson and Randolph Tickens; for the bride, Anna Fuller 
and Dillon Carpenter. 

No one in the whole Leyden colony was more efficient and emi- 
nently useful in all the preparations for their departure for America. 
At the time of 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, sister of Isaac Allerton, who was married first in London to 
John Vincent. She married second in Leyden, at the same time of 
her brother's marriage, Degory Priest, (Hatter from London). He 
died in Plymouth, Mass., 1 January, 1620-1. His widow, who had 
remained behind, married third at Leyden, Godbert Godbertson, 
who came to Plymouth with his wife, in the Ann, 1623, and both 
died in 1633. 

As was natural at that season of the year, the voyage on the May- 
flower 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 en- 
tangled in the shoals of that dangerous coast, and being all of them, 
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 moi-e to the north, they doubled the northern 
extremity of the Cape next day, and came to anchor in Cape Cod 
harbor to ride out a storm. 



THEALLERTON FAMILY. 15 

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 to throw off all authority 
appearing among the servants who had been hired in England. It was 
thought best by the leaders of the Colony that they should enter into 
an assocation for self government and bind themselves to be governed 
by the will of the majority; and accordingly, on the 11th day of No- 
vember, 1620 (old style) there was drawn, on the lid of a chest on 
board of the Mayflower, at Cape-Codd, and signed by forty-one of 
the principal men of the first band of Pilgrims, a platform of govern- 
ment known as the Compact, and which gave to these people the 
claim of being the first "Signers" of the now United States of 
America. The following is the full text of the Compact: 

m ye n$f\i op goj>. ^imcn. 

We whole names are underwritten, the loyal fubjects of 
our dread Sovereigne Lord, King James, by ye grace of 
God, of Great Britaine, France and Ireland, King, de-

King James of England, France and Ireland ye eighteenth, 
and of Scotland ye fiftie-fourth Ano Dom. 1620. 



16 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Isaac Allerton was the fifth signer of the Compact, the names 
which precede his being those of John Carver, William Bradford, 
Edward Winslow, and Elder "William Brewster (afterward his father- 
in-law). His son-in-law, Degory Priest, was the twenty-ninth signer. 

They remained at anchor in Cape Cod Harbor for five weeks, 
during which time the men made many excursions to explore the sur- 
rounding country, while the women -were taken on shore to wash the 
clothing. Finally, having selected a place for their settlement, on 
Monday, December 22, 1620 (11th of December, 1620, O. S.), a date 
which by their act has been rendered one of the landmarks 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 to- 
gether with 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 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 25th, 1621. While on the Mayflower in the 
harbor of Cape Cod, she had been delivered of a child, still-born, and 
the hardships 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 in- 
complete 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:

18 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 ex- 
pected 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 groundnuts 
"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 Allerton Assistant Governor, a position 
which he held until 1624, and probably longer. 

In September, 1621, 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 ALLERTON FAMILY. 19 

the spring of 1624, when seven acres, "on the south side of the Brook 
to the Baywards," 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. (See Appendix, note A.) She was a woman of 
pleasing appearance and of a pious disposition, as we are told, and she 
is interesting to us as being the mother of that Isaac Allerton, the 
second of the name, from whom the Allerton family is descended. 
She died December 12, 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 Adven- 
turers, 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, eveiy 
"Michaelmas, in nine annual installments of £200, each," and it was 
provided that they were to forfeit thirty shillings per week, for every 
week the debt was not paid after it was due. This composition 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 



20 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

entire indebtedness, amounting in all to about £2400, and in addition 
they were to pay the Colony £50 per annum in hoes and shoes. 

Having satisfactorily arranged the composition with the Adven- 
turers and paid them their first installment of £200, and having paid 
other debts, Isaac Allerton returned to Plymouth in the spring of 
1628, bringing with him a supply of goodsj 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 enlargement 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 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, written 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 disagree- 
ment. We might offset the complainings of Bradford with the 
statements of those who were better able to know the true value of 
Isaac Allerton's services to the colony; thus James Sherley, one of 
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 by Timothy Hatherly, a friend of the colonists 
at London, "But the Lord so blessed his labours (even beyond expec- 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 21 

"tation in these evil days), as he obtained the love and favour 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. Allerton 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 Lon- 
don, and the officers of 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 calculated 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 Allerton, 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 intolerance of the people, and went to New Amsterdam to 
live. Like most of his descendants, Isaac Allerton, though a just and 



22 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

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 of the Plymouth 
colonists, who were no doubt well represented by their narrow and 
dogmatic governor, there was little possibility of any reconciliation, 
even had there been more in common in their natures and their ways 
of life and thought. 

Moreover, he had given great offence by embarking extensively in 
business which conflicted in many ways with the industries of the col- 
ony. 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. Win" 
throp 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 Pem- 
aquid." 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 with 
light boats at Marble Harbor, and he is justly regarded as the founder 
of Marblehead, 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 pre- 
viously 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 in 
"the behalf of the Court to enter upon the estate of Godbert Godbert- 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 23 

"son 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 Allerton of Plym., 
"Mercht., late brother of 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 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. Allerton and many 
"fishermen whom he employed that season." The same year, return- 
ing 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 be- 
longing 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 Amster- 
dam, 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 enterprise were thor- 
oughly 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 



24 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

the West Indies, and frequently visited the New England Colonies; 
and notwithstanding 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 pro- 
cured them a very good pinace and all things necessary." 

And in a letter from one John Haynes to Governor 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 of 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 more probably she 
came from Marblehead 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 Allerton must have been 
nearly sixty years of age and the union proved to be a childless one. 

About 1646 Isaac Allerton became a permanent resident of New 
Haven, and at that place he lived the remainder of his life, although 
making occasional 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. One of the "famous spots" in New Haven is 
the north-west corner of Union and Fair streets where the house stood. 
A tablet has been placed on the present building bearing this full 
inscription: — "Isaac Allerton, a passenger of the "Mayflower," lived 
on this ground from 1646 to 1659." 

It was in this house that the regicide Judges Whalley and Goffe 
found temporary shelter and concealment in 1661. Stiles, in his His- 
tory of the Regicide Judges, says that they were protected by Mrs. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 25 

Eyres, but in this lie 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 Elizabeth Allerton, daughter of her son-in-law, 
Isaac 2 , who received and sheltered the judges. 

An old plan of New Haven in 1*748, shows the house of Simon 
Eyres, a descendant of his in this location, and mentions Isaac 
Allerton 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 a home 
as would be most pleasant for the last years of one who had been so 
long a follower of the sea. 

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

On March 10, 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 honorable 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 com- 
"plained 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 
court to another, and an additional fine of two shillings ordered each 
time, until December, when "Mr. Evans saith Mrs. Allerton desired 



26 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

"him to acquaint the Court with the case." The explanation being 
that there had been a long misunderstanding between her and John 
Cooper about the location of the fence complained of. The Court 
said they "must rest on John Cooper's report because 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." 

Isaac Allerton was now approaching the threescore 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 exten- 
sive, although not very successful 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 buried in the old 
Burying Ground at New Haven, occuping 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 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 27 

or no doubt that the dust of one of the Pilgrim Fathers reposes be- 
neath the Elms of New Haven's public square. An Inventory of his 
estate, taken February 12, 1659, was presented to the Court April 5, 
1659. "Mrs. Allerton 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 Allerton, although informal and without date, was sworn to by 
John Harriman and Edward Preston, the subscribing witnesses, as 
sealed and subscribed by Mr. Allerton deceased, "whilst 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 extent of his business. It begins thus: 

"An account of the debts due at the Dutch," meaning at New Am- 
sterdam. 

Among the debts are, '"700 guilders by Tho. Hall by arbitration 
"of Captain Willett and Augustus Harman, about Captain Scarlet 
"which I paid out;" "900 guilders from John Peterson the Bore, as by 
George Woolseys book will appear." One item which helps 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 three guilders a 
week. After the clause constituting his son and wife trustees, he 
adds, as if it were 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 sen- 
tences: "My Brother Brewster owes me four score pounds and odd, 
"as the obligations appear." " Besides all my debts in Delaware Bay 
"and Virginia, which in my books will appear, and in Barbadoes 
what he can get." Isaac Allerton, Senior." 



28 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

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 
similarity of development in the upper portion of the head and face, 
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 Mayflower, 
except possibly Winslow, and one or two 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 
tolerant 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 soldier, or of Alden the clerk, while the record 
of Allerton'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 descend- 
ants but in common with his heroic companions of the Mayflower, his 
name will be forever 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.

THIRD GENERATION. 



6 5 ISAAC 2 (Isaac 1 ). 

Born in Plymouth, Mass., in 1630. Graduated from Har- 
vard College in 1650, being in the seventh class that graduated from 
that institution. He accompanied his father, subsequently, on his 
voyages between Plymouth, New Haven, New Amsterdam and Vir- 
ginia, and was associated with him in the coasting business. After 
his father's death in 1659, he purchased from the creditors of his 
estate, the dwelling-house, orchard and barn, with two acres of 
meadow, and in the New Haven Records we find a deed recorded, 
dated October 4, 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 authentically witnessed, and so sign and 

"seal the same in presence of 

John Salmon, 

"March 10, William Corfield. 

"1682-3. Isaac Allerton." 



32 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Isaac married as early as 1652 a wife whose name was Elizabeth — 
but her maiden name or the exact place of their marriage is unknown. 
He resided in New Haven, Conn., and had three children born there. 
His wife probably died about 1660. 

He bought land as early as 1655 at Wicomico, Northumberland 
County, Virginia, to which place he probably removed after the death 
of his wife, and married there as his second wife, about 1663, Elizabeth 
Willoughby, daughter of Captain Thomas Willoughby. Isaac Aller- 
ton was her third husband, she being widow of Simon Overzee and 
Colonel George Colclough. (See Appendix note B.) 

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography says of him 
(Vol. 1, page 199), "Colonel Isaac Allerton of Westmoreland County, 
Virginia, was son of Isaac Allerton, one of the principal emigrants in 
the Mayflower. He was born at Plymouth, Mass., in 1630. Gradu- 
ated at Harvard College in 1650, and soon came to Virginia and settled 
in Northumberland County (then including Westmoreland County.)" 
Colonel Allerton was sworn a Justice of Northumberland County, 22 
April, 1663; was a member of the "Committee of the Association of 
Northumberland, Westmoreland and Stafford Counties," 1 November 
1667 (Northumberland Records, also Henning Vol. 2, page 257). In 
September, 1675, as Major he was second in command to Colonel John 
Washington of Virginia forces against the Indians, and November 5, 
1677, was second in ''Committee of the Peace for Westmoreland 
County and of the Quorum." Member of the House of Burgesses 
February 1676-7. (Westmoreland Records.) 

Virginia Carolorum, by Neill, page 347, recites the fact that "in 
early summer, 1675, the "Doegs," an Indian tribe of the Potomac, 
stole from the settlers and afterward killed some of them" — and then 
says: — "A joint movement of Virginians and Marylanders was ar- 
ranged to go against them. The Virginians were under command of 
Colonel John Washington, Colonel George Mason and Major Isaac 
Allerton." Pages 386-387 say:— "In 1679, for the defense of the 
County from incursions of the Savages it was enacted that a garrison- 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 33 

house or store-house be erected at the head of the four principal rivers 
and Major Isaac Allerton, grandson of Elder William Brewster of 
Plymouth, St. Leger Codd and Colonel George Mason were designated 
to superintend the building of a house sixty feet long, twenty-two feet 
broad and a magazine ten feet square, at Neapsico, near Occognar, on 
the Potomac River." He was appointed a member of the Council in 
1683. (Salisbury Extracts.) 

In a letter dated June 10, 1G91, Governor Nicholson reports to the 
English Government that Richard Lee, Isaac Allerton and John 
Armistead, out of scruple of conscience, refused to take the oath and 
were left out of the Council. 

Honorable Isaac Allerton, of Westmoreland County, Virginia, 
died in 1702. Will was dated 25 October, 1*702, witnessed by 
Humphrey Morriss, John Gerrard, Daniel Ocanny. Proved 30 De- 
cember, 1702. He describes himself as sick of body, and after a 
pious prelude, disposes of his estate as follows: — 

"To church of Cople Parish £10 sterling, to daughter Sarah Lee 
and grandson Allerton Newton, two tracts of land in Stafford County, 
to mv dear daughter Elizabeth Starr, also heirs who live in New 
England, 600 acres of land, part of a dividend of 2150 acres, on south 
side of Rappahanock River, to her the said Elizabeth and such of her 
children as she shall dispose of the same to, but in case the said Eliz- 
abeth be dead before the date of this my Will, I will and devise the 
same 600 acres of land to her eldest son and to his heirs forever." He 
also gives to her heirs the sum of 2000 pounds of tobacco, to be paid 
upon demand, and 5000 pounds to daughter Sarah Lee, and as daughter 
Travers has had a sufficient part or proportion of my estate given her 
in consideration of marriage, I do therefore, for memorial sake, give 
to her three daughters Elizabeth, Rebecca and Winifred Travers, the 
sum of 1000 pounds tobacco apiece when 17 years of age, or upon 
marriage, to grandson Allerton Newton 1000 pounds tobacco when 21. 
All the remaining part of my lands and tenements, not above be- 
queathed, how or wheresoever situate and being, to my well beloved

son Willoughby Allerton and to his heirs forever. He also bequeaths 
his son all his personal estate, goods and chattels, real and personal 
of what kind, sort or quality soever the same may be, and appointed 
him his executor." (New England Historical and Genealogical Reg-

sea captain, by whom she had several children, among 
them were Simon Eyres and Isaac Eyres. Simon died 
at New Haven, Conn., in 1695. She died November 17,

Frances, daughter of Colonel Isaac Allerton, of Virgiuia, the son of Isaac Allerton, 
merchant taylor of London, who emigrated to Massachusetts in the Mayflower."

2, pages 151-2: — "Here lies the body of John Bushrod, Gentleman, son of Bishrod 
by Apphira his wife. He was born in Gloucester, Virginia, January 30, 1663. He 
took for his wife, Hannah, daughter of William Keene of Northumberland and

1719, in the 56th year of his age."

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 possibly at Norwich, in the same State, 
during most of the remainder of his life, following his son, John 4 , to 
Coventry, 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 it is said, serving with credit in the Indian wars.

to Norwich at the same time as 1 John 4 in 1711, and apparently with him. Purchased 
a farm of Rene Grignon. Had his cattle mark recorded in 1712. In March 1714- 
15 he conveyed the farm back to Grignon, and no other record has been found of 
him. He was probably another son of 2 Isaac 3. 



36 THE ALLERTON FAMILY.

Note. — All male descendants died before 1760 and it is not deemed necessary 
to go into their history in detail. A reference to the New England Historical and 
Genealogical Register, Vol. 44, pages 290 to 295, will give every fact possible for 
this volume to give. 



FIFTH GENERATION. 



13 'JOHN 4 , (Isaac 3 , Isaac 2 , Isaac 1 ). 

Born in New Haven, Conn., about 1585. Married Eliza- 
beth . He removed to Norwich, Conn., about 1711 or 1112, and was 

one of the first Selectmen in 1721. From there he removed to War- 
wick, Rhode Island, where he was admitted as a freeman, May, 1739. 
On August 3, 1741, the west end of the town, where he lived and had 
his farm, was set off as Coventry, and he was admitted a freeman in 
that town, May, 1742. (Rhode Island Vital Record.) His wife, 
Elizabeth, whose maiden name is unknown, survived him many years 
and removed, with a daughter who married a Mr. Sweet, to the State 
of New York. He died in Coventry about 1750. His children were 
born in Norwich, Conn., and the Town Records show the dates of their 
birth to be as follows :

38 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

14 2 JESSE 4 , (Isaac 3 , Isaac 2 , Isaac 1 ). 

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 
descendants. He married early in life and lived in various parts of 
Connecticut and Massachusetts; one account states that he died in the 
latter State, 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 absolutely 
nothing is known, and indeed no attempt has been made to trace the 
female members of the fourth and fifth generations. The tradition 
that several of his sons were victims of the Wyoming massacre is 
given elsewhere in this volume.

name was Burlingame. He resided at Coventry, Conn., where he was 
a cooper and farmer. He injured one of his fingers while placing a 
back-log upon an old-fashioned wood fire, from which blood poison- 
ing resulted, causing his death. He was buried in the family grave 
yard on his farm in Coventry, R. I.

40 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

27 6 ISAAC 5 , (John 4 , Isaac 3 . Isaac 2 , Isaac 1 ). 

Born at Norwich, Conn., August 15, 1725. Married about 
1745, Lucy Spaulding. (See Appendix note E.) But little is known 
with certainty of his early years. He lived at Canterbury and Plain- 
field, 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 entirelv 
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 to a large amount in exchange for pro- 
duce and supplies furnished to the troops, 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. 

During his lifetime he possessed several mementoes of the May- 
flower and of the earlier years of the Plymouth Colony, among others 
a broad-axe which had been used to hew the timbers of the first house 
built by the Colonists, and a fuzee-gun taken in battle from an Indian 
warrior, but unfortunately 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 in Amenia, Dutchess County, N. Y.

the Allertons of the sixth generation. Many details for 
this genealogy were obtained from her. 



Note. — George James had a daughter, Polly James, born January 16, 1794, 
who married Moses Castle, February 10, 1813. Their son, Theodore H. Castle, 
born August 9, 1826, is father of E. M. Castle, who lives (1899) at Dresden, Yates

Born at Plainfield, Connecticut, September 15, 1746. 
Married September 17, 1772, in Sharon, Conn., Bathsheba daughter of 
Joshua Mead. His early life was passed on his father's farm, where 
he obtained 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. 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 sickness to return home, and evidently shared 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 his pay in that money, by which he lost 
nearly his entire property. In 1783, in company with other of his 
fellow-townsmen, he purchased a tract of land, known as the Van 
Schaick patent in the town of Cairo, 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 sur- 
vived 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.

42 3 REUBEN 6 , (Isaac 5 , John 4 , Isaac 3 , Isaac 3 , Isaac 1 ). 

Born at Canterbury, Conn., December 25, 1753. He was 
unusually well educated for those times and studied medicine with 
Dr. Fitch of New Haven, and surgery with Dr. Spaulding of Nor- 
wich, a relative of his mother, and became eminent as a physician and 
surgeon. The History of Dutchess County, New York, by J. H. 
Smith, Town of Amenia, page 345, says: "Among the early physicians 
was Dr. Reuben Allerton, son of Isaac Allerton, of Windham County, 
Conn., who purchased the farm of Abner Gillet, in 1787. He preceded 
his father a few years, and began the practice of medicine about 1778. 
In 1785 he removed to the Oblong, where for a time he lived in the John 
Reed house. Afterward, and until his death he lived near the Pres- 
byterian church, now in South Amenia. 

It was probably immediately after the completion of his medical 
studies that he entered the service of the Colonies as Surgeon in the 
Regiment of Colonel Hopkins in 1777. Page 354 says: " Roswell 
Hopkins was Colonel of the Sixth Regiment and participated in the 
Battle of Saratoga. Dr. Reuben Allerton was Surgeon of the Regi- 
ment in that campaign." A portion of his instruments are still in the 
possession of his descendants. 



46 THE ALLERTON FAMILY.

70 3 ISAAC 1 , (David 6 , Isaac 5 , John 4 , Isaac 3 , Isaac 2 , Isaac 1 ). 

Born at Canterbury, Conn., February 14, 1785. He accom-

he had charge of a congregation of Indian converts at Sangerfield. 
From 1805 to 1807 he preached at Hillsdale, New York, and in the 
latter year went to North-East, in Dutchess County. He was married, 
March 21, 1809, to Sylvia Winchell, daughter of Colonel Martin 
Winchell, of North-East. In the war of 1812, he acted as Chaplain 
in a militia regiment, and in 1815 assumed the charge of the Baptist 
Church at Sherburne, in Chenango County, New York, and in 1818, 
he went to Norwich, in the same County. From 1820 to 1840, he 
resided at New York City and in Putnam and Ulster Counties, and

Born at Amenia, Dutchess County, New York, December 
5, 1785. Married, March 26, 1808, Hannah Hurd,born 1788, in South 
Dover, Dutchess County. His father was a physician and he also

studied for that profession, but changed his mind and learned a trade, 
becoming a merchant tailor and had a country store. In 1828 he was 
one of the promoters in building a woolen factory. In 1833 the Dem- 
ocrats reduced the tariff and nearly all the factories built in New 
England, or near there, were monuments of ruin, and from 1835 to 
1836 nearly every man who tried to build up his country was ruined. 
Samuel W. was in that condition, and in 1837 he tried to restore his 
fortune and went West, to Iowa, with his oldest son, Henry, where he 
was taken sick. He came home without means, and worked in a store 
for two years. During the fifty-seven years of his life prior to 1842, 
he lived nearly all the time in Amenia. He was for a long time a 
Trustee of the Amenia Presbyterian Church, but was not a commu- 
nicant, as he was a strong Universalist. He was Deputy Sheriff of 
Dutchess County for three years. In 1842 he removed to Yates County, 
New York, where he rented a farm, and in 1848 bought a farm in 
Wayne County, where he lived the remainder of his life. 

He was a very industrious man, never idle a minute, and brought 
up his children to believe that true religion is "Love to God and 
Good Will to Man." He was a man of sterling integrity, lived to a 
ripe old age and died August 10, 1885, aged 99 years and 8 months. 
With the exception of his youngest son, his children all received a 
seminary education. Hannah Hurd, his wife, was the eldest daughter 
of Ebenezer and Rebecca (Phillips) Hurd. Ebenezer Hurd had a large 
farm in Amenia, and besides farming dealt in cattle and sheep. He 
had three sons who were also farmers and stock dealers. Ebenezer 
Hurd was familiarly called "Uncle Eb." and was well known through 
the eastern part of New York State, where he was constantly purchas- 
ing cattle and sheep, which he drove to New York City to market. 
He was the first large cattle buyer and drover, and returned from 
market on horseback with his saddle-bags loaded down with the gold 
and silver in which he had been paid. He had large dealings with 
Henry Astor, a brother of the famous John Jacob Astor. 

Ebenezer Hurd was a son of Daniel Hurd, who was born in 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 59 

Killingly, Conn., and who married Betsy Allen, of Vermont, a cousin 
of Colonel Ethan Allen. 

Of the nine children born to Samuel Waters Allerton, eight were 
alive in January, 1899, and at a combined age of over 630 years, show- 
ing the rugged ancestral stock from which they descend. 

Children. Born in Amenta, Dutchess County, New York. 

162 Cornelia 8 , born March 26, 1809; m. Walter Sherman, a suc- 

cessful and thrifty farmer and cattle dealer, and was 
blessed with three children, Mary, David H. and Samuel. 
She was a Methodist, having a strong personality and her 
heart filled with charity and good will to all. When 
eighty years of age some children were brought from 
New York City to find homes among the farmers, and 
finding that they were slow in taking them, she volun- 
teered to take six, which gave her so much worry that 
her son had to hire them kept afterward at some other 
place. 

163 s Amaryllis 8 , born January 1, 1812; m. Shadrac Sherman, of 

Amenia, a cattle dealer, and a successful man. They had 

three children, Alice R., Hannah L., Lois J. She is a 
woman of strong personality, and devoted to her husband 
and children. She is at present (1899) eighty-seven years 
of age and attends to her business affairs with great 
ability. 

164 3 Henry Reuben 8 , born December 25, 1814. Died January 29, 

1899. Unmarried. The following tribute to his memory 
was written by his brother Orville Hurd Allerton, or New- 
ark, New York: "He was the eldest son, born on 
Christmas day, and proved to be the best Christmas 
present his parents could have received, for, never marry- 
ing, he lived with them nearly all his life and was a 
good, kind son. They had no fear that vicious habits or 



60 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

evil communications would corrupt his honor or integrity. 
Being with his mother when she "passed to the great 
beyond," his was the hand that erected the monument to 
her memory, and had engraved, in the hope and belief 
that God would reunite them, "God is Love." 

Early in life he chose the occupation of farming as his 
life work, and continued in it until his death. He was 
educated in the district school. Until his fourteenth 
year he worked on his father's farm; he then, for two 
years, hired out at farm work, receiving seven dollars per 
month for eight months, and working for his board the 
remaining four months. When fifteen years of age he 
could do a man's work. 

He continued a "wage earner" for seven or eight 
years, and commanded the highest wages paid at that 
time for farm labor. With Henry R. Allerton labor was 
a pleasure, his industry great, his labor tireless. He 
inherited unswerving honesty and morality, and was a 
strictly temperate man. Nature endowed him with an 
extraordinary memory, which was strengthened by much 
reading, making him a good historian; he was also a good 
mathematician and well versed in literature. From early 
life he was a great reader. When a young man his uncle 
Milton B. Allerton, gave him a copy of Doctor Benjamin 
Franklin's Works, with which he was much impressed. 
Always the "first one up," he believed with Franklin 
that "he that rises late may trot all day and not overtake 
his business." In early manhood he, in company with his 
father, went to Iowa, where he bought six hundred and 
forty acres of land, about twenty miles from the city of 
Dubuque. His father assisted him to build a log house 
and returned to Dutchess County, New York, by stage, 
being stricken on the way with Dumb Ague, a disease 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 61 

then unknown in Dutchess County. The second year 
after his father left him, Henry was stricken with the 
disease to such an extent that he lost the use of both 
arms and legs. His father took him to his home in 
Dutchess County, but it was three years before he 
recovered their use. In 1850 he sold his Iowa farm, 
together with one hundred head of cattle, and bought the 
Lathrop and Blackman farms, containing two hundred 
and thirty acres, on which his father was located. Father 
and son worked the farm together and were successful. 
Henry, by industry and wise investments accumulated 
more than a competency, and at his death was the wealth- 
iest citizen of the town in which he lived. 

For the past two decades he lived in the village of 
Newark, tilling a small farm of twenty acres, happy with 
his books and the companionship of his brothers and 
sisters, and especially with his three sisters with whom 
he made his home, Mrs. Amanda H. Tabor, Lois J. 
and Rebecca H. Allerton, to whom he was more than a 
brother, giving them the benefit of his experience in bus- 
iness affairs, and the pleasure of companionship enhanced 
by his richly stored mind. 

Liberal minded and honest in all his dealings with his 
fellow men, quiet in disposition, an independent thinker, 
not accepting the views of any unless by his own reflec- 
tion he thought them reasonable and just — he "venerated 
the man whose heart was pure, whose actions and whose 
deeds gave evidence that he was honest in the Sacred 
Cause." He was a noble type of good heroic manhood.

ulated quite a large fortune. She is a member of the 
Universalist Church, in which she takes a great interest, 
believing true charity, love to God and good will to 
all, is true religion. She is beloved by all who know her.

He was a farmer in the town of Deer Park, in Orange County, New 
York, until 1869, when he was admitted to the bar; his attention hav- 
ing been drawn to the legal profession by his successful defense of 
himself against a charge of assault and battery, which created great 
amusement at the time, and the report of which, first printed in a 
local paper, was widely copied. Since 1869, he has practiced law at 
Port Jervis, in Orange County, and although but poorly educated, his 
shrewdness and natural ability has made him quite successful.

165 <ORVILLE HURD 8 , (Samuel W.% Reuben 6 , Isaac 5 , John*. 
Isaac 3 , Isaac 2 , Isaac 1 ). 

Born at Amenia, New York, April 17, 1816. Married, 
January 15, 1845, Eliza Adelaide Dean, of Dresden, Yates County, 
New York. She was a natural and self-taught artist, and had she 
applied herself to a thorough cultivation of the art, would have made 
her mark as a portrait and landscape painter. As a wife, no more 
true, noble or trustworthy heart ever beat in human breast. 

Orville, when ten years of age, began work in a comb factory, 
intending to learn the trade, but, in a few months the proprietor sold 
out and moved away. He then for a time did light work upon a 
farm, for which he received, as pay, the sum of three cents a day.

THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 81 

An uncle was chiefly engaged in the live stock business. When 

Orville was eleven years old his uncle took him out of school to help 

him drive a drove of cattle to the New York market, one hundred 

miles distant. When twenty-one miles from home, Orville became so 

homesick that he could not be induced to go farther. Two men on 

horseback were going eight miles toward his home. Orville kept up 

with them on foot and reached home that evening, averaging over five 

miles per hour for four hours. Love of home has always been a 

strong feature of his character. Five times he drove cattle to New 

York with his uncle, each time on foot. He was paid twenty-five 

cents per day and steamboat fare to Poughkeepsie, New York, thirty 

miles from home, which distance he then walked, unless he happened 

to find a teamster who would allow him to ride part of the way. His 

education up to his fourteenth year was received in the district school 

and the select school of Dr. Leonard and the Amenia seminary. 

At the age of thirteen he became a clerk in a store at Nassau, 

New York, and later, at Dover Plains, New York. He later 

went to Elmira, New York, where he secured a position as 

clerk in a large store. In 1839 he received letters from his brother 

Henry, who had settled in Iowa, urging him to visit him, and telling 

him that he could there better his financial condition in a store in that 

State. Orville left Elmira, October 4th, on board a packet boat on 

the Erie Canal. At Buffalo he took passage on a steamer crowded with 

five hundred and twenty-one passengers. When entering Saginaw 

Bay a furious storm arose. Nearly all the passengers were seasick 

and frightened, believing the boat would be wrecked. The passengers 

cried and prayed. After several hours had passed, a safe anchorage 

was made in the St. Clair river. At a "praise meeting" held that 

night, the Captain said that in twenty years' experience he had never 

seen so severe a storm as that through which they had just passed. 

Orville arrived in safety in Chicago, Illinois, and went from there by 

stage to Dubuque, Iowa, two hundred miles distant. The roads were 

in such condition that frequently the passengers had to help pry the 



82 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

wheels out of the mud. He walked from Dubuque, twenty miles, to 
his brother Henry's home. 

The store he entered was a very crude affair, the stock being prin- 
cipally plug tobacco, clay pipes and whisky. He was there but five 
weeks, when he returned to Elmira. His experience as clerk and 
book-keeper for twelve years, gave him a thorough knowledge of bus- 
iness principles, and laid the foundation of his character. Integrity 
and industry enabled him, in later years to reach a high measure of 
success. He came to Newark, New York, in 1842, and began a mer- 
cantile career which continued for twenty-five years. After thirty- 
seven years of indoor work he found it necessary, on account of failing 
health, to change his business. He sold his store and goods and 
accepted, in 1868, a position offered him by his brother Samuel W. 
Allerton, as superintendent of the Pennsylvania Central Stock Yards 
at Pittsburg, Penn., a position of great responsibility and liberal 
compensation. He remained there seventeen years, and retired at that 
time, after fifty-four years of active business life, with the confidence 
and esteem of his employers. 

He is possessed of strong controversial talent, is an able writer, 
and some of the best articles in the public press are from his pen. 
They are concise, clear and very argumentative. He is of liberal 
mind, a strong believer in free thought and opinion; is consistent in 
politics and can, when called upon, give an address at once pointed 
and convincing. 

His measure of success in life he owes chiefly to promptness in busi- 
ness, order, industry and integrity. The man who has made money by 
strict attention to his own business, and by non-interference with the 
affairs of others, he considers a good example to follow. He has been 
very successful in the purchase and sale of Western railroad stocks 
and other speculative operations, and has accumulated a large 
property. 

He now (1899) lives in Newark, New York, where he has invested 
a large sum in the purchase of a fine farm of 160 acres and has erected

one of the best and finest residences in the county, which, with its 
fine garden and grounds, is an ornament to Newark.

ess County, New York. He was a farmer and cattle dealer and 
resided in Newark, Wayne County, New York. He always took a 
great interest in public questions.

170 9 SAMUEL WATERS 8 , (Samuel W. 1 , Reuben 6 , Isaac 5 , John*, 

Isaac 3 , Isaac 2 , Isaac 1 ). 

Born at Amenia, Dutchess County, New York. Married 
July 1, 1860, Pamilla W. Thompson, of Peoria, Illnois, and after her 
death married her sister, Agnes C. Thompson, March 15, 1882. 
Samuel Waters Allerton was the youngest of nine children. When 
he was but seven years of age he received an impression which has 
influenced his whole life. His father had failed, (through causes 
noted in his history), and the sheriff was selling the property; among 
the property were two horses which had been highly prized; his 
mother shed tears when they were "bid off." Samuel threw his arms 
around his mother's neck, saying, that he would be a man, and provide 
for her. In after life he kept his promise. Samuel was the youngest 



84 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

of nine children, and lived at Amenia until he was fourteen years of 
age, and had to commence work at the age of twelve. His father 
removed to Yates County, New York, in 1842, and rented a farm. 

Samuel worked with him until they had saved enough money to 
buy a farm for his father, in Wayne County, New York. 

Samuel then, with his brother Henry, rented a farm, and made 
fifteen hundred dollars, they then bought a farm, jointly, in Newark, 
Wayne County, New York, for four thousand five hundred dollars, 
paying the fifteen hundred dollars down. 

Samuel then rented a farm, and at the end of three years had saved 
thirty-two hundred dollars. He then went to Newark, where he 
worked with his brothers, on their farm, and traded, in a small way, in 
live stock, in Wayne County. He went to New York and Albany, aud 
upon his return, said to his brother Henry: "I believe I know as much 
as the dealers I met, and I think my services are worth more than nine 
dollars a month, and, as we now have the farm paid for, and three 
thousand dollars in money, I will settle with you, you taking the farm, 
and I taking the money." His brother replied: "If you continue as 
you are, in a few years you will own the best farm in this country; but 
if you wish to try the live stock trade, all right, we will settle on this 
basis. This is all the advice I have to give you; you will run across 
smart and tricky men, but they always die poor — make a name and 
character for yourself, and you are sure to win." 

The first hundred cattle Samuel ever bought, he sold in New York 
City, where the Fifth Avenue Bank now stands. It was the worst 
market there had been in ten years, and he lost seven hundred dollars. 
This absolutely made him sick, for he got his money together in 
small sums. He had an elderly uncle, who had made a success in 
life, who said to him — "my boy you are pretty sick, but don't lose 
your courage. I never found but one dead sure thing, and that was 
hoeing corn at fifty cents a day. If you make money, you must some- 
times lose it. Try it over." 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 85 

Samuel went to Erie. Women had burned down bridges, because 
trains would not stop for dinner, this made a break in the line, and 
live stock had to be unloaded and driven to Dunkirk, at which place 
he bought one hnndred cattle, shipped them over the Erie R. R., 
encountered a great flood, arrived in New York, and found the market 
short on cattle. This venture netted him three thousand dollars, and 
gave him courage. He drifted West, and for the first year fed and 
raised cattle in Illinois. 

Mr. Sturgis failed in Cincinnati, Ohio, the national financial 
system was so weak that it created a panic, and wiped out about all 
Samuel had. He became sick, concluded he could not stand the West- 
ern climate, and bought an interest in a store with his brother, in 
Newark, New York. Selling goods was not agreeable to him, as he 
desired to deal on a larger scale. He had met a daughter of Astor C. 
Thompson, in Fulton County, Illinois. After he had regained his 
health, he gathered together what money he had left, and borrowed 
$5000, and started West. The young lady was the principal attrac- 
tion, he went directly to Fulton County, Illinois, where he traded a 
little. He came to Chicago in March, 1860, and was married on July 
1st, of that year, to Pamilla W. Thompson, at Peoria, Illinois. He 
settled in Chicago, believing that Chicago, "where the world turned 
around every twenty-four hours" was the proper place to trade in. 

He commenced, in a small way, to buy and sell live stock. There 
was no general market in Chicago, except for a short time during the 
winter. Shippers generally took their live stock to the Eastern markets. 
About this time there came a decided break in the Chicago market. 
Samuel desired to buy, but he had formed no connection with any 
bank here, and the question was how to get the money. Among his 
few acquaintances in Chicago was a gentleman by the name of Tobey, 
whom he asked to take him to a bank, and identify him. Mr. Tobey 
was willing to do so, at the same time saying, that he could not guar- 
antee anything. Mr. Allerton said that he only desired to be iden- 
tified, he would arrange the balance. Mr. Tobey took him to George 



86 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Smith's bank, a bank that issued Georgia money, and furnished the 
currency for the great North-west. He said to Mr. Willard, "If I 
will pay for three telegrams, one to Halstead, Chaimberlain & Co., 
asking if they will pay my draft; one to your own correspondent, to 
ascertain if Halstead, Chamberlain & Co. are all right; and one to my 
own bank to assure you that I am all right — can I come down to-mor- 
row and sell you a sight draft?" He replied, "Yes." Mr. Allerton went 
back to the Stock Yards, and bought all the hogs in the market, and 
went down with a draft for Eighty Thousand Dollars, asking Mr. 
Willard if he had received replies to his telegrams. His answer was, 
that he had, and that they were very favorable. Mr. Allerton handed 
him the draft. Mr. Willard said he had not supposed he would want 
more than five thousand dollars, and that he could not discount so 
large a draft on telegrams. Mr. Allerton said, "You know Mr. Tobey, 
you do not think he would introduce a thief to you? Mr. Willard 
would not discount the draft. Allerton found himself in a position 
where he must have the money. What to do he did not know ! He 
accidentally met a gentleman from Syracuse, and asked him if he was 
acquainted with any banks in Chicago? He replied, "Yes, Aikens & 
Norton." He took Mr. Allerton to them, and introduced him. Mr. 
Aikens looked over the telegrams, and signified his willingness to 
comply with Mr. Allerton' s request, but said he would have to charge 
one per cent. In this way Mr. Allerton became a customer of Aikens 
& Norton. The Civil War broke out. The nation needed money. 
Congress passed the National Bank Act, issuing bonds to secure the 
circulation. This was a step in the right direction toward a National 
Currency, as the nation had never had anything but Red Dog and 
Bob-tailed currency; and to start a National Bank would aid the gov- 
ernment, and give the people a uniform currency, because the nation 
was back of it, but for some reason, the people seemed slow to start 
National Banks. Mr. Allerton asked Mr. Aikens why he did not start 
a National Bank. He replied, "because he feared he could not get 
the stock taken." Mr. Allerton said, that he, with five other men, 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 87 

would take ten thousand dollars each. In this way the First National 
Bank of Chicago was started. 

Mr. Allerton wrote the first letter ever published in the Chicago 
Tribune in favor of organizing a Union Stock Yards, so as to bring 
all buyers and sellers together, which made it the greatest live-stock 
market in the world, and also made Chicago a money center. He 
always had the desire to own a farm, when he succeeded in accumu- 
lating enough money. He bought land, and is to-day the largest far- 
mer in this country, who cultivates his land; cultivating about forty 
thousand acres, in the very best manner. He loves to buy land that 
does not produce anything, and make it bloom and blossom like a rose. 
This may be said to be his hobby. 

He is largely interested in ranches, and gold mines; has interests 
in Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and 
New York, and has always been interested in the live-stock trade, and 
continues to ship live-stock and cattle to New York and England. In 
Farms, Stock- Yards, Street Railroads, are his principal business 
interests. 

He received his early political education from Henry Clay and 
Horace Greeley and has always been a Republican. 

In 1844, when Henry Clay was a candidate for President, the issue 
was, "shall we put a tariff on iron and inaugurate free schools." The 
Democrats said, "a tariff would build up home monopolies and free 
schools would be a burden and a tax on the people." Clay replied, 
"give the people free schools so as to increase their intelligence, their 
energy and industry, and home competition would reduce the price of 
iron," (it being then one hundred dollars a ton). Believing the free 
school system made this great Nation, and remembering the words of 
Clay, Mr. Allerton, by giving the land, has had school houses built on 
each of his farms. 

He is a firm believer in an proper tariff for the interest of our 
Nation. Like an individual man, the Nation is individual and no 
other nation will take care of it. He believes that this Nation should 



88 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

have a sound currency, as good as the bank notes of England, and 
which should be good in every nation on the globe; that the weakness 
of the National financial system has destroyed the character of many 
young men who tried to better their condition by building up some 
industry, and who lost their position and character by the periodical 
panics; that a great Nation of free people should have brains enough 
to frame a financial system that would be as sound as the Bank of 
England. He believes that all men should try to lead a successful 
life; this he owes to himself, his friends and his people. The success- 
ful men of our Nation have done much to build up the colleges, 
schools and hospitals, from which the public has received a large ben- 
efit. If the man of wealth invests his money and promotes industries 
that give employment to the people, he is a public benefactor. There has 
not been a boy born in a hundred years, starting out in life right, but 
who could gain a competency. That young men have a better oppor- 
tunity now than when he was a boy; have better teachers, better 
schools; labor is higher, and the necessities of life are cheaper. He 
once ran for mayor of Chicago in the interest of Civil Service with no 
pledges to any one, only as a good citizen to do his duty; as there was 
nothing to be gained as mayor except to leave a good name to his child- 
ren, and to give the city an honest, clean administration. He intended 
to employ the best engineers in the country to settle the vexed ques- 
tion of engineering, and, in all departments of the city government, 
to put the right man in the right place, irrespective of politics. 

He carried the North division of the city, and the other intelligent 
wards, but was beaten by a sharp political trick of his opponent, 
(Harrison). The Democratic aldermen used their influence to elect 
Republican aldermen, with the understanding that they in turn would 
help elect a Democratic mayor.

APPENDIX. 



Note A. 

Elder William Brewster, the progenitor of the family in 
America, was born during the last half of 1566 or first half of 1567. 
The date of his birth is determined by an affidavit made in Leyden, 
Holland, June 25, 1609, in which he, wife Mary, and son Jonathan, 
declare their ages to be respectively 42, 40, 16. Bradford says: 
(N. E. H. 6- G. Reg. Vol. i8,pp. 18 to 20.) He was "nere foreskore 
years of age (if not all out) when he dyed." This statement agrees 
with the affidavit. He was born in Scrooby, Northamptonshire, 
England. 

His father, William Brewster, was appointed by Archbishop 
Sandys, Bishop of York, in January, 1575-6, receiver of Scrooby and 
bailiff of the Manor House in that place, belonging to the Archbishop, 
and to have a life term of both offices. The Manor House was the same 
in which Cardinal Woolsey had made his last stop, before reaching 
home, on his final journey, on compulsory retirement from Court, 
after banishment by King Henry VIII, thirty years earlier. 

The parish register of Scrooby does not begin until 1695, and no 
record of William Brewster's birth, baptism or marriage has been 
found. He matriculated at Peterhouse, Cambridge, December 3, 1580, 
but it does not appear that he remained long enough to take his degree. 
He is next found as a "discreete and faithfull" assistant of William 
Davison, Secretary of State to Queen Elizabeth — accompanying that 
gentleman on his embassy to the Netherlands, in August, 1585, and 
serving him at Court, after his return, until his downfall in 1587. 



116 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

After the retirement of Davison, Brewster returned to Scrooby, 
where he lived "in good esteeme amongst his friends and ye gentlemen 
of those parts, espetially the godly and religious, doing much good in 
promoting and furthering religion." In 1590, he was appointed to 
administer the estate of his father, who died in the summer of that 
year, leaving a widow, Prudence. 

His father was postmaster of Scrooby at the time of his death, 
and it is said, that his grand-father held the same office. 

Sir John Stanhope, who became Postmaster General in June, 1593, 
appointed one Samuel Bevercote to succeed the deceased Brewster. 
Through the influence of Davison, however, the old Postmaster's son 
William was soon appointed to the office, which he held until 
September 30, 1607. (o. s.) 

His residence at Scrooby was the old Manor House. There the 
members of the Pilgrim Church were accustomed to meet on the 
Lord's day, when Brewster "with great love, entertained them when 
they came, making provission for them, to his great charge." 

The Pilgrims attempting to move to Holland, in the latter part of 
1607, were imprisoned at Boston, through the treachery of the Master 
of the ship that was engaged to transport them. 

Bradford says that Brewster "was ye cheefe of those that were 
taken at Boston, and suffered ye greatest loss, and of ye seven that 
were kept longest in prison, and after bound over to ye assises." 

Through Bradford also, we learn that Brewster, after he reached 
Holland, suffered many hardships, and spent most of his means in 
providing for his "many children." 

He was not so well fitted as the other Pilgrims for the hard labor 
which became their common lot, yet he bore his condition cheerfully. 

During the latter part of the twelve years spent in Holland, he 
increased his income very much by teaching, and by the profits from 
a printing press, which he — by the help of some friends — set up at 
Leyden. At the end of that time, "for sundrie, weightee and solid 
reasons," which are duly set forth in Bradford's history, among 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 117 

which " and which was not least," was a true missionary spirit, the 
church at Leyden resolved to emigrate to Virginia. Brewster, the 
Elder of the Church, who had been chosen to that office during the 
Pilgrim stay at Leyden, was "desired" by those chosen to go first, 
"to goe with them," while John Robinson, the Pastor, stayed with 
the majority, who should follow later. Thus it happens that we find 
Elder Brewster, his wife Mary, his two younger sons, the wife of his 
son Jonathan, and her son William, among the passengers of that, 
now famous vessel — the Mayflower — which dropped anchor at 
Plymouth Harbor, December 11, 1620, (o. s.). 

At Plymouth, Brewster took an important part in establishing the 
Pilgrim Republic, not shrinking from even the most severe manual 
labor, and " when the church had no other minister, he taught twise 
every Saboth, and yt at both powerfully and profitably to ye great 
contentment of ye hearers." 

His wife Mary, whose maiden name has not been discovered, 
"dyed at Plymouth, in New England, the lVth of April, 1627. (From 
the "Brewster Book," a very old manuscript, containing a record of 
the Brewster family, and now (1899) in possession of George Ernest 
Brown, Esq., of Boston, Secretary General, Society of Mayflower 
Descendants). Bradford says : that though she dyed " long before her 
husband, yet she dyed aged," but by her affidavit of 1609, she was 
less than sixty years of age, and it is probable that her " great and 
continual labours, with other crosses and sorrows, hastened it (i. e. old 
age) before ye time." 

Elder Brewster survived his wife many years, and "dyed at 
Plymouth, in New England, the 10th of April, 1644." (This record 
is from the " Brewster Book," in which the entry was made by the 
eldest son, Jonathan, probably in the year 1644, and certainly before 
1651, and it is doubtless correct). 

He left a library of about 400 volumes, valued at £42 19s lid. 
"August 20, 1645, a final division of the Elder's estate was made by 
Bradford, Winslow, Prence and Standish, between Jonathan and Love 
his onely children remayneing." 



118 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Governor Bradford pays tribute to the character of his "dear and 
loving friend," Elder William Brewster, in the following words: — 
"He was wise and discreete and well spoken, having a grave and 
deliberate utterance, of a very cheerful spirite, very sociable and pleas- 
ante amongst his freinds, of an humble and modest mind, of a 
peaceable disposition, vnder vallfwing him self and his owne abilities, 
and sometimes over valewing others. Inoffencive and innocent in 
his life and conversation." * * * "tender harted and compassionate 
of such as were in miserie," * * * "In teaching he was very 
moving and starting of affections, also very plaine and distincte in 
what he taught, by which means he became ye more profitable to ye 
hearers." * * * "For the government of ye church * * * he 
was earful to preserve good order in ye same," * * * "and 
accordingly God gave good success to his endeavors here, in all his 
days, and he saw ye fruite of his labours in that behalfe."

THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 119 

Note B. 

So much has been said of a contradictory character, in regard to 
the wife or wives of Isaac 2 Allerton, it has been thought best to state 
the subjoined facts, in order that the question may be well understood. 

Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 1,(1893-4) pp. 
199, 200, says: in "Fitzhugh Letters," it is stated that Isaac 2 had a 
wife Elizabeth as early as 1652, and in 1663 she is described in the 
Westmoreland Record, as Elizabeth, former relict of Major George 
Colclough, of Northumberland, but recorded at Northumberland, and 
dated February 20, 1663. 

Thomas Willoughby, and Sarah his wife, (who was evidently a 
daughter of Richard Thomson, of Northumberland), gave a power of 
attorney to "our loving brother Isaac Allerton." 

In Northumberland, November 20, 1658, George Colclough, who 
had married Ursula (Brishe), widow of Col. John Mattrom, and earlier 
of Richard Thompson, was appointed guardian of Richard and Sarah, 
infants (under 15 years of age) of said Richard Thompson. 

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 3, p. 323, 
Dr. Christopher Johnson says: Simon Overzee, whom Job Chandler 
calls his brother-in-law, was a merchant, and probably of Dutch 
descent. He resided, at various times, both in Virginia and Maryland. 
{Maryland Archives, Vol. 3, folio 298, William and Mary Quarterly, 
Vol 2, p. 268.) January 20, 1658, he entered rights for himself, Sarah 
his wife, and one child. (Land Office, Lib. Q. Folio 323.) In 1658, his 
wife, Mrs. Sarah Overzee, died in child bed, and was buried 9 October, 
1658. (Rec. Prov. Court, Lib. S, Folio 164, 166.) 

In a petition of Thomas Cornwaley's, dated 11 December, 1658, 
Mrs. Yardley, widow of Col. Francis Yardley, is called mother-in-law 
of Job Chandler and Simon Overzee. (Lib. S, Folio 144.) 

The evidence here presented, compared with the Thoroughgood 
Genealogy, (in Vol. 2, p. 414, Va. Hist. Magazine) show beyond a 
doubt that Mrs. Ann Chandler and Mrs. Sarah Overzee, were the 
daughters of Capt. Adam Thoroughgood, and Sarah his wife. 



120 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Simon Overzee, married a second time, and died at the end of Febru- 
ary, or the beginning of March, 1659, without issue, (Chancery Lib. 
CD, Fol. 9, 56, 103) and 18 December, 1660, his widow Mrs. 
Elizabeth Overzee, was granted administration of his estate, giving 
bound, 7 January, 1660-1, for 100,000 pounds of tobacco. (Test. Prox. 
Lib. IC, Fol. 7.) 

Soon after this sale she married Col. George Colclough, for one 
Hugh Bruin, demands 7 February, 1630-1, a scire facias against Col. 
George Colclough an 1 Elizabeth his wife, widow and administratrix 
of Simon Overzee, deceased. (Lib. S, Fol. 403.) 

Major George Colclough, had also been previously married, his 
first wife being Ursula Brishe, widow of Col. John Mattrom, and 
previously of Richard Thomson. 

Major George Colclough died about 1662, and in 1663, his widow 
Elizabeth appears as wife of Isaac Allerton, who had also previously 
had a wife in New England, also named Elizabeth. 

The power of attorney given 20 February, 1663, from Thomas 
Willoughby, and Sarah his wife, to "our beloved brother Isaac 
Allerton," the fact that Isaac Allerton had a son Willoughby Allerton, 
and the entry of the name of Elizabeth Willoughby among the "head- 
rights" of Capt. Thomas Willoughby, in 1654, combine to prove that 
she was Elizabeth, sister of Colonel Thomas, and daughter of Capt. 
Thomas Willoughby. The Virginia 'Magazine, Vol. 1, p. 448, says: 
Capt. Thomas Willoughby, was born in 1601, his only son was Thomas 2 
Willoughby, born December 25, 1632, who married before 1660, Sarah, 
daughter of Richard and Ursula (B rishe) Thomson. They had a son 
Thomas 3 Willoughby, who married Margaret Herbert. 

Thomas 2 Willoughby, who was born in 1632, and educated in the 
Merchant Taylor's School, in London, England, and was Lieut. Colonel 
in Virginia, and Thomas 3 Willoughby, (his son) who styles himself in 
deeds of date 1 688-9, "Thomas Willoughby, of Elizabeth River, in 
County Lower Norfolk, Va., gentleman, sole son and heir of the Hon. 
Lieut. Colonel Thomas Willoughby, of the same Parish and County. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 121 

He married Margaret Herbert, and had a son Thomas; a daughter who 
married Rev. Moses Robertson, of St. Stephen Parish, County West- 
moreland; and a daughter Sarah, who dying single, in 1740, mentions 
in her will of January 19, 1738, her brother Thomas Willoughby, and 
her cousins (nephews) Thomas, Samuel, William, Allerton Willoughby 
and also her cousin John Willoughby Robertson (her nephew, son of 
her sister.) 

In tracing as early a marriage as that of Isaac 2 Allerton to his 
second wife, Elizabeth Willoughby, it is seldom that such a combination 
of marriages is found, but plainly stated, the facts are found to be 
these, viz : 

Simon Overzee, married, first, Sarah Thoroughgood; second, Eliza- 
beth Willoughby. He died February or March, 1659. 

Col. George Colclough, married, first, Ursula (Brishe) , as her 

third husband. She being widow of Richard Thomson, 
and Col. John Mattrom. The children of Richard and 
Ursula being placed in guardianship of their step-father. 
He married second, Elizabeth Willoughby, as her second 
husband, she being widow of Simon Overzee. 

Isaac 2 Allerton, married, first, Elizabeth ; second, Elizabeth 

Willoughby, as her third husband, she being widow of 
Simon Overzee, and Col. George Colclough, Isaac 
Allerton, thus became the "loving brother" of 
Thomas 2 Willoughby. 



122 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

Note C. 

A question has arisen among Genealogists, as to the identity of 
Isaac 3 Allerton, (son of Isaac 2 ), born in New Haven, June 11, 1655, 
and the Isaac 3 Allerton, mentioned by Walter S. Allerton, on page 55 
of the Allerton Genealogy, published by him in 1888. 

Although it has, so far, been found impossible to obtain any 
record directly substantiating the fact, it is well known that early 
records are defective, and incomplete, and especially so where persons 
moved about, as it is known that the "early" Allertons did. 

A careful study will convince the most skeptical that they are one 
and the same person. 

All authorities concede that Isaac Allerton, of the Mayflower, was 
the only Allerton known to have emigrated to New England, at an 
early day, except one John Allerton, a sailor on the Mayflower, who 
died before the return of the vessel to England, and who had no 
descendants. 

Isaac 1 had but two sons: Bartholomew 8 , by his first wife Mary 
Norris. He went to England with his father; married there, and as 
far as known, none of his descendants came to New England. 

Isaac 2 was born at Plymouth, in 1630, by his second wife, Fear 
Brewster, and from him the Allerton family in this country descend. 

Isaac 2 was married as early as 1652, to Elizabeth. (Maiden name 
unknown.) He resided at New Haven, Conn. By this wife he had 
three children born to him there. Elizabeth 3 , born September 27, 
1653. Isaac 3 , born June 11, 1655. Sarah 3 , born about 1660, and 
shortly after her birth, his wife Elizabeth died. 

His father, Isaac 1 , also lived in New Haven, after 1646 or 7, and 
died there, intestate, in 1659, leaving a widow, Johanna, (a third wife.) 
Isaac 2 purchased the homestead, with the understanding that bis step- 
mother should have the use of it during her life-time, and that it then 
should revert to his daughter Elizabeth 3 . Shortly after this time, 
he, (Isaac 2 ), removed to Virginia, leaving his daughter, Elizabeth 3 , 
in care of his step-mother, and taking his son, Isaac 3 , and daughter 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 123 

Sarah 3 , with him. Sarah 3 married Hancock Lee, in Virginia, and it 
is thought that Isaac 3 was also married there. About 1663 Isaac 2 
married in Virginia, as his second wife, Elizabeth Willoughby. 
She having been previously married to Simon Overzee, and Col. 
George Colclou«;h. 

By his second wife, Isaac 3 had three children, Daughter 3 , who 
married a Newton. Frances 3 , who married Capt. Samuel Travers, 
and Willoughby 3 , who married Hannah Keene. who was widow of 
John Bushrod. 

In 1682 the step-mother of Isaac 3 , died, in New Haven, and he 
returned from Virginia, to have the original deed confirmed and 
properly witnessed, in order to be sure that the homestead might come 
into the possession of his daughter Elizabeth 3 , who had married, in 
New Haven, Benjamin Starr, as her first husband ; and at this time, 
was living with her second husband, Simon Eyres. 

At just about this time, an Isaac Allerton, is found in New Haven. 

He could not have been other than Isaac 3 , the brother of Eliza- 
beth 3 , and who had returned from Virginia, with his father — for in 
no other way could an Isaac Allerton have been there at that date. 

It is claimed by one or two genealogists that Isaac 3 , son of Isaac 2 , 
died before 1702, because he is not mentioned in his father's will. 
Granting that he was dead, (which is very improbable, from other 
circumstances), it does not necessarily follow that he left no children. 

In the will of Isaac 3 , he states that his daughter Frances Travers 
had received her full portion of his estate, at the time of her marriage, 
and consequently wills her nothing, but for memorial sake, he gives 
each of her three daughters one thousand pounds of tobacco, and as 
they were living in Virginia, and where constantly in his company, it 
was very natural that he should leave them a memorial. No doubt 
Isaac 3 , had also received his full portion, at the time of his marriage, 
or, as is most probable, when he became of age, and therefore is not 
spoken of in his father's will. 



124 THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 

It is but recently that any doubt of the descent of the family has 
arisen, or found expression. 

Mead Allerton did not seem to think it necessary to preserve 
proofs of a fact that appeared to be generally admitted, and although 
Mr. Allerton does not give his authority for some statements, it is a 
well known fact that he had been carefully collecting his manuscript, 
covering a period of several years, and that he had been assisted in 
his work by such men as Hon. H. B. Cushman, Dr. Shurtleff, Dr. 
Leonard Bacon, and others. While probably some errors of a general 
character occur, the main facts are undoubtedly correct. 

Mr. Francis B. Trowbridge, of New Haven, Conn., a well known 
genealogist, compiler and publisher of Champion, Hoadley, and 
Ashley family genealogies, who examined the New Haven records in 
1899, says : 

"I do not think you can learn anything further from the land, 
probate, or vital records of New Haven. 

In the index of deeds the name appears but once, May 4, 1680, 
(Vol. 1, p. 38), referring to an agreement between William Holt and 
Isaac 2 Allerton. The deed is an agreement between Holt's son John 
and widow Johanna Allerton. In the probate records there is but 
one mention of Allerton, (Vol. 1, 1st part, pp. 82, 83), given in 
Allerton Genealogy of 1888, pp. 50, 51. 

In an abstract of Colony Records, made by my great uncle, (E. C. 
Bacon, Esq.), in 1835, I note : — 

" Allerton, Isaac, New Haven, October, 1(543." " His afflicted state, 
noted, 1652." "His son, Isaac 2 married, as early as 1655 or 6." 
"Inventory of Isaac 1 , February, 1658-9." "Eldest, and only son, 
noted, 1659." "Mrs. Allerton sent in 16S4, for a chest, at Mr. John 
Harrirnan's." "At this time, John Harriman, Senior, lived at Eliza- 
bethtown, New Jersey, and his son, John Harriman, Junior, at New 
Haven." My great uncle, therefore, apparently found evidence that 
Isaac 3 , born 1655, was the same man as Isaac Allerton, who was in 
New Haven, 1684. 



THE ALLERTON FAMILY. 125 

The "Mrs. Allerton," who sent for the chest, in 1684, at John 
Harriman's, was evidently the wife of Isaac 3 , for the widow of Isaac 1 
died in 1682, and Isaac 2 was then living in Virginia, married, and his 
family there, except his daughter Elizabeth 3 , and Isaac 3 , as above. 
It will be noted, also, that John Harriman, Senior, swore to the will 
of Isaac 1 Allerton, in October, 1659, showing an intimacy between the 
families, and carrying with it the probability of the identity of Isaac 3 . 



Note D. 

The dates of birth of the children of Isaac 3 , are given as closely 
as possible. The details in respect to this generation, were many of 
them furnished to Mead Allerton, by Sarah 6 Allerton, (Isaac 5 , John 4 , 
Isaac 3 ). She was born at Plainfield, Conn., February 12, 17*70. 
Married, George James, and died in 1858, being thirty-seven years of 
age when her father died. 

Isaac 5 was born in 1725. It is a well know fact that he always 
claimed to be a descendant of the Mayflower Pilgrim, and possessed 
a broad-axe that he claimed had been brought over in the Mayflower. 
(See Read 's History of Amenta, N. Y.) 

The circumstances connected with Sarah 6 Allerton's time of birth 
and that of her father's, render it very probable that Isaac 5 knew 
many general facts connected with those concerning his father John 4 , 
and grand-father Isaac 3 . 

Undoubtedly Mead Allerton, obtained many unrecorded facts in 
this manner.

Note E. 

DESCENDANTS OF EDWARD SPAULDING, 

In direct line to Lucy Spaulding, born 1727, 
who married Isaac 5 Allerton. 

EDWARD SPAULDING, is the first of the family of whom we have 
any knowledge. He came to America between 1630 and 
1633. He first appeared at Braintree, Mass., where his first wife, 
Margaret, and his daughter Grace died, and Benjamin was born. 
He was made Freeman, May 13, 1640. On October 1, 1645, he was 
one of the petitioners for the new town of Chelmsford. Was Select- 
man in 1656-60-61. February 4, 1661, is recorded the division of 
land granted him by the town, amounting to twenty-eight acres. 
In 1665, he was appointed one of the "committee for the laying out 
of the Meadows, granted to the several inhabitants, according to town 
order." In 1663 he was "the surveyor of the highways." In 1666, 
he was chosen, with three others, "surveyor for the Newfield," a tract 
of land lying north of Stoney Brook, then first opened for pasturage, 
afterward, when settled, called Newfield, and subsequently, North 
Chelmsford. He was one of the proprietors of Newfield. (Rec. in 
Town Records, March 12, 1667, 6 A.) 

He died February 26, 1670. His will, dated February 13, 1667, 
does not mention his sons, Benjamin and Joseph. His widow, Rachel, 
was made executrix, but she died soon after he, and on probate of 
the will, April 5, 1670, administration was given to John and Edward. 

The reason Benjamin and Joseph were not mentioned in the will 
is undoubtedly because they had already been given their portion, and 
which they had invested in land in Plaintield and Killingly, Conn.
