About Robert Allyn

   THE GROTON AVERY CLAN, Vol. I, by Elroy McKendree Avery and Catherine Hitchcock (Tilden) Avery, Cleveland, 1912. Found in the DAR Library, Washington DC. Page 116.
       According to the New London records, "Robert Allyn ye sonn of John & Elizabeth Allen was borne about ye middle of September (1671)." He lived at Allyn's Point, about six miles below Norwich, was a man of property, and was held in high esteem in the colony. Robert Allyn and his wife were in full communion with the First Church of Groton before the ordination of the Rev. John Owen, Nov. 22, 1727. The records of the church prior to this date are lost. Robert Allyn died Dec. 28, 1729, about nine o'clock in the morning (Hempstead's Diary, p. 216). His will was probated Jan. 27, 1730, at New London. (New London Wills, vol. C), By numerous deeds he had provided well for his children, and most of his remaining property he left to his wife.
       The records of the First Church of New London show the baptisms of the children as given. The younger ones were probably baptised at Groton and recorded in the lost book. The births are here recorded as they appear on the original town book of Groton. The copy that was made in 1861 and that has been general use since that time, recorded Elizabeth as b. Nov. 20, 1694, and omitted Deborah. A careful comparison of church and town records had forced the conviction that the town book was wrong. This occasioned much loss of time and money. In 1905, through the kindness of the town clerk, we were permitted to consult the original book and there discovered that a mistake had been made in copying not only that but other entries.
