[4086] "Descendants of George Allen..."
Jack MacDonald
"George Allen, the immigrant ancestor of many of the Allen families found
in America today, arrived in Massachusetts Bay Colony from England on 6
May 1635... "
"George Allen is believed to have been born in either Somersetshire, or
Dorsetshire, England...Although George Allen is known to have married
twice while still residing in England, the name of his first wife has
not been determined. His second wife, however, was a woman named
Katherine. Katherine accompanied George to America, and is believed to
have been the mother of at least five of his children. According to the
list of passengers making up the Hull party, Katherine was thirty years
old in 1635, thereby indicating that she had probably been born in about
1605 in England... "
"George apparently died during the last part of April 1648 at Sandwich,
New Plymouth Colony, as he was subsequently buried there on 2 May 1648.
His will was probated before the New Plymouth Court on 7 June 1648. One
year later, on 8 June 1648, Katherine furnished an inventory of George's
estate to the New Plymouth Court. Sometime after George passed away, his
widow, Katherine, married for a second time to a man named John Collins,
who was a shoemaker in Boston."

"The American ancestor of the Sandwich, Massachusetts, family was George Allen, born
in England, about 1568, was probably the son of Ralph Allen of Thurcaston, Leicester county."
"He had twelve sons and several daughters; some of his sons preceded him to America and
settled first in the vicinity of Boston, but after the purchase of Sandwich they all removed to that
town and settled near the residence of their father."

"Certain Comeoverers"
Crapo, Henry Howland
New Bedford, Mass.: E. Anthony & Sons, 1912; p181
"George Allen was the first of this family in this country. He was born, probably prior to
1583, in the County of Somerset, in England. He joined the party under the leadership of
the Rev. Joseph Hull and sailed from Weymouth March 20, 1635, arriving in Boston May 6,
and remaining there until July, when with other members of Mr. Hull's party he settled at
Weymouth. In 1637 he moved to Sandwich and was a member of the first church in 1638."
