PREFACE.

r T" , lIlS work is the outcome of a paper which I prepared for the
Salem Press in 1892, giving the ancestry of Gen. Ethan
Allen, which incited so much inquiry that I was induced to
undertake the compilation of the descendants of Samuel Allen, the
emigrant, who settled in Windsor, Conn., in 1640. Hithertofore
but little genealogical information had been published of the family,
with the exception ot the brochure by W. S. Allen in 1876, winch
was confined to the branch of John, the son 01 the first Samuel, to
which work 1 beg leave to acknowledge my indebtedness, in some
measure, especially in the earlier generations given therein.

My information has been mostly gained through personal
research, and through the medium of extensive correspondence
with the members of widely separated descendants and othei
interested parties, who have generously responded to my inquiries, to
all of whom my sincere thanks arc due. 1 also especially desire to
acknowledge my indebtedness to the following ladies and gentlemen
for the valuable material furnished : Frances Olcott Allen of Phila-
delphia ; James Allen Kibbe of Warehouse Point, Conn. ; the late
Mrs. Mary Jennings of Norfolk, Va., granddaughter of Ethan Allen. ;
the late Judge R. S. Taft, Col. G. G. Benedict and Prof. John E.
Goodrich of Burlington, Vt. ; Henry VV. Alien of East Windsor,
Conn. ; E. F. Allen of Kansas City ; Miss Helen L. Allen of
Springfield, 111. ; Miss Elizabeth E. Allen of Florence, Mass. : the
late Mrs. Agnes A. Brinegar of Granby, Mo.; and the Misses
Alice J. and Anna \V. Theobald of Baltimore.

The compiler has employed the leisure of nearly fifteen years in
gathering the material for the work, and yet he cannot claim that it
is as complete as he could wish or entirely free from errors, but
bearing the evidence of abundant labor, he now offers it to the
descendants of noble ancestors who wrought well and left a heritage
of worthy deeds for an enduring monument.

The compiler would be thankful for the conection of any error-,
which may be found in the work.

INTRODUCTION.



VVere Samuel and Col. Matthew AJlen Brothers?

"^OR nianv years very mis leading views have been entertained,

claiming kinship between Samuel Mien of Windsor and Col.

atihevv Allyn of Hartford and Windsor. Conn.* Also a confusing

the names of Thomas Aliyn of Barn table Mass., and Dea.

lomas Ailyn of Middletown, Conn.

It is only recently that those matters tia'-e been sifted and set
iht. Kirs* 'hen. the patient investigations of Mr. Francis O'coU
Sen of Philadelphia have com hisivi ' shown that S. J .muel and Coh
atthew Allyn were not brothers, but that Col. Matthew of Windsor,
~>nn., and Thomas Ailyn of Barnst ble, Mass., bore thai relation
ip and were the sons of Richard and Margaret Allen of Braunton,
o. Devon, England, no Samuel Ailen being found on the registers
eic.|

The foregoing relationship of Thomas and Matthew has been
rther identified by the will of Richard Allen of Braunton, proved
ay 10, 1652, which fully establishes the fact beyond controversy.^

Kinship of Samuel and Dea. Thomas Allen.

Secondly, a careful search of the records has established the fact

a Samuel Allen of Windsor, and Dea. Thomas Alien of Middle-
•wn were brothers, as will be seen in the following, furnished by

r. James Allen Kibbe of Warehouse Boh;;, Conn., who is a
2seendant of Samuel Allen: 1

proofs, which so clearly prove the kinship of Samuel and I)ea.:on
Thomas Allen.

Search for English Ancestry of Samuel Allen.

Inspired by the laudable purpose of penetrating the mystery which
has lon;^ enshrouded the origin of his English ancestors, Mr. Frar. cis
Olcott Ailen of Philadelphia his prosecuted careful research in
England at considerable expense.

Atone lime the realization of his fondest 'hopes seemed on ', :
point of consummation., so mrny favorable evidences had been
unearthed. But finally they were abandoned because of rhe lack of
a few links necessary to complete the chain, and because air. Alien
is too conscientious 10 put forth any claims which could not boar
the full blafe of critical inspection, cnCi in that decision, no doutu,
ell thoughtful members of the Allen family -.'.'ill justify him. So fur
. the present at least, the parentage and birthplace of Samuel Alien
must remain an unsolved problem.

Allen Coats of Arms.

Allen, fust spelled Alan, comes from the root word A', meaning
mountainous, high and bright. As a personal name it was first borne
by the iBard of Britain, an uncle of Caractacus, who had a long line
of kings ior ancestors. The name came into prominencf* after 'he
Cor.guest, from tl;e f".v.i that tho chief general of WinhuWarmy at
the battle of Hastings was ALn, Duke of Brittany, who made
England his future home and b,. nne the third r' hes; man in the
kingdom. r:om that time on t!ie name g.cw in number and
importance.*

The Allen family has been especially h-inored in Kr.ehrul and
Scotbnd by the be.towme.it of armorh.1 hearings; in. :u-.i than
sixty-two families 'nave been thus honcied.

There is little doubt that our Samuel Allen was descended from a
knignted family, yet uitil his ancestry has been fu«ly traced h-.-voi '
a i!oul>t, it \vo-!d not be good form for his posterity to ■i-s , .ih:-j tr
r:ght to appropriate a crest, as some othei fain. lies Ii:c •• done v.r
fhght evidence to f. rlh} the claim.

o-ame house bought by Samuel Allen, and in which Joseph Alien, the

'father of Gen. Ethen Allen, was born. Hon. George Sheldon writes

orother Joseph, who in 1732 sold one hundred acres to his sister,

Lydia, and the same amount to Paul Peak Jr. The will of Mercy

Alien was made in Litchfield Jan. 28, 1727-8, and probated Apr. 24,
