DESCENDANTS OF SARAH ALLEN

ALLEN ANCESTRY

[Condensed from the compilations of Walter Spooner Allen.]

GEORGE 1 ALLEN was a yeoman farmer living in the
County of Somerset, England, who came to America in 1635
with the party of Rev. Joseph Hull, landing at Boston.
With him were his wife Catherine, three sons, and a man-
servant. He settled in Weymouth, Mass., and was one of the
Proprietors of that town. In 1637 he is recorded in Sand-
wich, where he was a constable, and a deputy to the Gen-
eral Court at Plymouth. In 1646 he built a house in
Sandwich which stood until about 1882. He died in 1648
and was buried on May 2 of that year. He had a large
family. His son,

RALPH 2 ALLEN probably came to this country before his
father, and in 1638 is found in Sandwich, where he is re-
corded as a church member. He became a Friend, and
suffered persecution for his fidelity to the sect. He bought
land in Dartmouth extensively from three owners, and
probably at one time lived in that town, although he died
in Sandwich in 1698. Among his Dartmouth holdings was
a parcel of land at "Barnes his Joy" (now Barney's Joy),
which he bought in 1672 from Sarah Warren, widow of
Nathaniel Warren, and this he conveyed by deed of 1675
to his son Ebenezer Allen. On this tract was located
Ebenezer's homestead near Allen's Pond. Others of the
family lived in the vicinity. The son,

EBENEZER 3 ALLEN was born Feb. 10, 1650, married
Abigail - , and had ten children. He died in 1725.
His daughter Hannah married Isaac Howland, uncle of
Gideon Howland (See page 40). His son.

JAMES 4 ALLEN was born Nov. 30, 1695 and died in 1770
or 1771. He married Mary Akin, daughter of Captain



SARAH ALLEN'S DESCENDANTS 289

John and Mary (Briggs) Akin, born Jan. 23, 1697, aunt
of Mrs. Sarah (Hicks) Howland (See page 36). There
were seven children. His son,

PRINCE 5 ALLEN was born March 6, 1718 and died Oct.
9, 1778. He married June 18, 1742, at Falmouth, Mass.,
Deborah Butler, daughter of Obadiah and Elizabeth But-
ler, born May 1, 1724, died Nov. 30, 1815. They had
eight children. Their son,

JAMES 8 ALLEN (Prince, 5 James* Ebcnezer, 3 Ralph?
George 1 ), was born Oct. 20, 1757 and died Nov. 30, 1820.
He married June 1, 1785, Sarah, fifth daughter of Gideon
and Sarah (Hicks) Howland.

Note. Descendants of Nathaniel Howland (1657-1724), son of Zoeth
and brother of Benjamin Howland (see page 7), a number of whom
are recorded in this book, also have a line of descent from George
and Ralph Allen, through Rose Allen, born 1665, wife of Nathaniel
Howland, daughter of Joseph Allen, and granddaughter of Ralph
Allen. Nathaniel Howland and Joseph Allen were both prominent
in the town affairs of Dartmouth.
