About George Allen, of Sandwich

The Passenger List of the Hull Company bound for Boston from Weymouth, England, includes the following:

46 George Allin, aged 24 years. 47 Katherine Allin, his wife, aged 30 years. 48 George Allin, his son, aged 16 years. 49 William Allin, his son, aged 8 years. 50 Matthew Allin, his son, aged 6 years. 51 Edward Poole, his servant, aged 26 years.

(Please note that the age of George is probably in error. Impossible to be the father of a 16 year old son.)

They settled in what was then Wessagusset in 1634. The settlement was incorporsted as Weymouth in September 1635.

George Allen, the son of George Allen and his first wife, was born in about 1619 in England. George was apparently married twice during his lifetime. He appears to have married first in about 1645 in Massachusetts to a woman named Hannah. After their marriage, George and Hannah made their home at Sandwich in the New Plymouth Colony of Massachusetts (now within Barnstable County, Massachusetts).

According to various court records, George was fined on 8 June 1651 for failing to serve as a juror, and on 7 October 1651 both he and Hannah were fined for failure to attend public worship. George was also fined on several occasions for refusing to take the Oath of Fidelity to the King. In 1675, however, records indicate that George changed his mind and took the Oath of Fidelity.

Although the available land records indicate that George and Hannah purchased land in 1670 in that portion of the Province of East Jersey that was later formed into Monmouth County, New Jersey, they apparently never moved there. The majority of their children, however, eventually moved to New Jersey, settling in either Burlington County, or in the vicinity of Shrewsbury in Monmouth County.

In 1683, George and Hannah's relationship with the Quakers of Sandwich became strained over the marriage of their daughter, Lydia, to Edward Wooley who was not a Quaker. Hannah subsequently died at Sandwich about two years later in 1685.

After Hannah passed away, George married in 1687 for a second time, also in Massachusetts, to a woman named Sarah. George was subsequently reprimanded by the Quakers for his marriage to Sarah, who was not a Quaker, and on 3 June 1687 he acknowledged his wrongdoing. George died in 1693 at Sandwich in what had then become Barnstable County, Massachusetts. There were no issue from George's second marriage. -------------------- George Allen (George1); b. circa 1619; m. Hannah circa 1645; 1st
