About Allen Flegg

Allan's first wife was Nazareth (Deveroys) Flegg. His second wife was her sister, Elizabeth (Deveroys) Flegg. http://records.ancestry.com/allen_flegg_records.ashx?pid=1154496.

His four sons were all by Nazareth:

• Allen, born after 1570; he married Nazareth Devoroys on July 3, 1612 at age 42. The genealogist who researched the Flegg ancestry finds proof that a Thomas Flegg was baptized in Hardingham, Norfolk, England on May 6, 1621, and proceeded to prove that this was the Thomas that came to New England and establishes his lineage for several generations. Thomas was the youngest of the four sons of Allen and Nazareth (Devoroys) Flegg. He was seven years old at his father’s death and came under the control of his oldest brother Henry, which whom he probably lived with during the next few years. Nazareth was born April 3, 1583 in Hardingham, Norfolk and died in 1621. Allen died April 21, 1632 in Hardingham. Allen and Nazareth (Devoroys) had four children: 1. Henry Flagg, born 1612 2. Michael Flagg, born 1615 3. Bartholomew Flagg, born 1619 4. Thomas Flagg, born in 1621

    In 1633 William Laud became archbishop of Canterbury and started to enforce conformity upon the Puritans.  Matthew Wren became bishop of Norfolk in 1635, and his active persecutions of the Puritans caused a large migration of them to New England during the next two years.  At the same time there was great economic and industrial depression in England and young men joined this migration, not on account of religious motives, but with the object of bettering their material condition.  Thomas Flegg fit this category, however he did join the Puritan church in 1690.  Among the emigrants to New England in 1637 were twenty-five families whose records have been preserved, because the law required that lists be made of all persons leaving England.  Though many of the lists have been lost, the Public Records Office in London has a list of 115 Norfolk residents licensed to pass to New England in April 1637 on either the ship John and Dorothy or the Rose.  The family of Richard Carver of Scratby is named, and included three servants, one being Thomas Flege, age twenty-one years.
