About Henry Allen, Sr.

Henry Allen, Milford 1645, son of George and Katherine of Sandwich, MA

Henry Allen was an after planter, arriving in Milford in 1645. He married Sarah Hill around 1660 - 61. She was baptized in the church as the wife of Henry Allen on Oct 7, 1661. Their children were all born in Milford in 1661 to 1680.

Henry Allen of Milford and Stratford is believed to be the son of George Allen and his second wife, Katherine. After his father, George, passed away, Henry resided with his mother, Katherine, and step-father, John Collins, at Boston. By a deed dated 10 July 1656, Henry, along with his brother, Samuel, sold their share of their father's land at Sandwich to their older half-brother, George.

Henry married (1) Sarah Hill, in about 1660 at Milford, CT. She was the daughter of John and Frances Hill. Henry married (2) Rebecca (Sherwood) Rose at Stratford in Fairfield County, CT. Rebecca was the widow of Robert Rose. Henry, who was a shoemaker by trade, died in 1690 at Stratford, Connecticut.
