Note:

Wm. and Mary Qrtly., Vol. 6, No. 2 p. 69). Arthur Allen, the emigrant, was, in 1667, stated by himself to be sixty-five years. He died in 1670. He calls Daniel Tucker (aged fifty-five in 1667) "brother". As Tucker was the younger of the two, Allen's wife Alice was probably Alice Tucker. This view is confirmed by a grant dated March 13, 1649, to Arthur Allen, of 200 acres, between Lawnes Creek and Chippoakes Creek, for importing into the colony four persons, viz.: Alice Tucker, Wm. Eyres, Wm. Moss, and Thomas Rastell. (Land Register).

This quote seems to prove that Alice was still or had returned to England since she is included in the list of those imported by Capt. Arthur Allen, who was to become her husband.

The Allen Family of Surry County... by William Carrell, in The Virginia Genealogist, Vol.50, 2006

Alice Tucker was the sister of Daniel Tucker (born c1613) and possibly the daughter of the Daniel Tucker (1575-1625) who was born in Milton-next-Gravesend, Kent, stockholder in the Virginia Company of London, came to Jamestowne in 1608 in the Second Supply, and served as the second Governor of Bermuda, 1616-1619, where he died. There is no documentation to support this relationship, but if so, Alice was sent back to England after his death (since she was not listed in the 1624/5 Muster of Jamestowne) and was imported by Arthur Allen some time in the 1630's, and married him in Virginia. She is thought to have been a few years younger than Arthur. After Arthur's death, Alice married John Hardy, and lived in Isle of Wight County. John died soon after his will was written in October 1675, and Alice was reported to be living again in the brick house in Surry in September 1676 when that house was seized by Bacon's rebels, and they threw her out. She then apparently returned to Isle of Wight and lived with her daughters until soon after giving her power of attorney to William Mayo on 11 May 1681.
