About John Allen, of Sudbury

Lived in Newbury, MA until 1662 when he moved to Sudbury, where he died in 1711, probably about age 80. He was a tailor, but also had a farm where he lived. Sudbury was attacked by the Indians during King Philip's War in 1676 and he petitioned to the General Court for his loss estimated at 60 pounds. In 1688 he was one of the men who took the public stock of ammunition into their hands, sort of minute men. His son Thomas was likely killed during the first French & Indian War (King William's War of 1689). He left a will dated 9 Aug 1708; son Benjamin made executor.
