About Lydia Benjamin (Allen)

Lydia Allen

  • Birth: 1624 - Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts
  • Death: Jan 10 1709 - Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States
  • Parents: William Allen
  • Husband: John Benjamin, III

John’s wife Lydia Allen was born  1624 in Watertown, Middlesex, Mass. Her parents were William Allen ( 23 Mar 1602 in Allen Hall, Stratford, St Hulme, Wales – 10 May 1679 in Manchester, Essex, Mass.) and Anna Goodale (1601 – 1678). Lydia died 10 Jan 1709 in Watertown, Middlesex, Mass.

Lydia’s father William Allen, who was in Boston, November 13, 1673, a refugee from New York at the time of the capture of that town by the Dutch. He made his will December 15, 1674, which was probated January 26, 1674-5. (Suffolk Probate, Vol. 6, p. 133.) The testator bequeaths “unto Lydia Benjamin, wife unto John Benjamin of Watertown.” On January 26, 1674/75 (at the time of probating the will), John Benjamin appeared in court and renounced his executorship, “in the right of Lydia his wife, to the will,” this done as he attests, freely.

They had eight children and remained near Boston all their lives.
