      From the book, "One Hundred and Sixty Allied Families", by John Osborne Austin:

      Lynn, Sandwich, Mass.
      He may have been a son of Ralph Allen of Thurcaston, Leicester Country, England, who had children baptized as follows: Walter, September 22, 1561, John, August 29, 1563, William, December 8, 1570, Roger, December 20, 1573; and son Anthony buried April 23, 1567. The Parish Register from 1573 to 1584 and from 1585 to 1593 is lacking, and George Allen who came to America and Ralph Allen who married September 13, 1595, Agnes Davye, were very possibly children also of Ralph Allen of Thurcaston. Bishop Latimer's birthplace was Thurcaston.
      Mar 20, 1635. From Weymouth, England, for New England, George Allen, aged (24), Catherine, his wife, aged 30. Children, George, aged 16, William, aged 6, and servant Edward Poole, aged 26. (It is well to remember that ages were not always given exactly at the custom house, and in regard to George, Sr., there is evidently a mistake.) Some of George Allen's children came in a different vessel, evidently. This must have been the case with Ralph and Samuel.
      1636. Lynn.
      1637. Sandwich. He moved thence this year.
      1638. He was one of the eleven original members of church established this year at Sandwich. (Earlier than this he and son Ralph were members of church at Roxbury.)
      June 4, 1639. Constable. For a short time in this year he was at Newport, R. I., with sons Samuel and Ralph.
      1640. Surveyor of Highways, and same year received 6 1/2 acres in a division of Sandwich land to settlers.
      1640, '41, '42. Deputy. He and Edward Dillingham were nominated (1641) to appraise swine that Wm. Newland hath in execution of Thomas Applegate.
      March 1, 1642. He entered complaints against Edward Wollenston, Gent., and attached 2 swine for damages of oe4.
      1643. His name does not appear in the list of those able to bear arms between the ages of 16 and 60, hence he was now quite aged.
      August 20, 1644. Licensed to cut hay at the pond beyond Sandwich Plains, if he gave not the Indians anything for it without the approbation of the Bench.
      1646. His house built in this year was still in good repair 1860, and occupied at that date.
      February 26, 1647. He and five others were a committee on behalf of town, who received deed from Edward Freeman.
      1648. Will--proved June 7, 1649. Ex., wife Catherine. Overseers, Ralph Allen and Richard Bourne. Witnesses, Wm. Leveridge, John Vincent, Richard Bourn. He gives "unto all my children twenty pence apiece." To son Matthew 1 calf and 5s. To wife the old cow. To her also the house and household stuff for life, but if she marries they are to be disposed of and divided to 5 least children. To "5 least children" 1 cow each. To son William a meadow. To sons Henry and Samuel rest of meadow. The adventure in barque "Heave" to wife and 5 least children. Inventory, oe44, 16s. (including 5 cows and 4 calves oe23, etc., etc.) Probably he had already given his sons Ralph and George their portion, as they had married before their father died.
      May 2, 1648. He was buried at this date. Various accounts intimate that he was aged. Bowden's History of Friends gives us the information that George Allen was an Anabaptist, and of his family it is further stated that "there were six brothers and sisters of Ralph who joined the Friends; the father (George) had laid down his head in peace before Friends had visited these parts. His children had resided upwards of twenty years in Sandwich and vicinity, and were much respected by their neighbors." It should be remembered that Sandwich had the earliest Monthly Meeting of Friends in America; and here came very early, those pioneer Friends Christopher Holder and John Copeland, from London. George Fox, the founder of the sect, says: "In 1656, truth broke forth in America," and it was the next year that Holder and Copeland were at Sandwich. The fines wrested (in 1658 and 1659) from four of the sons of George Allen by sales of their property aggregated oe229, 8s. and all for the offences of attending Quaker meetings, refusing to take oath and similar crimes. Of the amount mentioned Ralph Allen suffered to extent of oe68 (collected by sale of 3 oxen, 4 cows, 1 steer, 1 horse and 1 mare and colt); George Allen oe25, 15s.; William oe86, 17s.; Matthew oe48, 16s. William Allen was especially obnoxious to the authorities as the meetings were often held there, part of his fine being oe40 for holding 20 meetings at his house. They left him but one cow out of "pretended pity" as the chronicler says (having taken 18 head of cattle and a mare). The family of George Allen scattered somewhat at his decease. Him son Matthew moved to Dartmouth; James to Tisbury; Henry to Milford and Stratford, Conn., and Gideon to Milford. His sons Ralph, William and Francis all died at Sandwich and left wills, (Ralph in his will, December 18, 1691, mentions sons John, Joseph, Increase, Ebenezer and Zachariah, daughter Patience, brother William. He desired that his body should be placed in Friends' burying place at William Allen's. William in his will, February 17, 1698, leaves his nephew David, son of brother George, his housing, lands, etc., he to allow testator's wife Priscilla competent maintenance for life. Francis in his will, February 18, 1696, mentions his daughter Abiah and her husband Zachariah Jenkins, and other daughters Dinah, Rachel, Abigail, Hannah and Rebecca.)
      Catharine, widow of George Allen, married, for second husband, John Collins. (July 10, 1656, Henry and Samuel Allen in deed to George Allen mention "out mother Catharine Collins" and deed was witnessed by John Collins. July 27, 1670, administration of John Collins estate, given at Boston to Gideon Allen.)
