Notes


"In his "will," undated and proved 19 October 1659, "Isaac Alerton, late of New Haven, deceased," devoted most of the space to a list of debts owing to him, and then ordered "my son Isaac Allerton and my wife, as trustees to receive in my debts, & to pay what I owe, as far as it will go & what is overplus I leave to my wife and my son Isaac, as far as they receive the debts to pay what I owe." The inventory, taken 12 February 1658/9, totalled 118 5s. 2d., and included "the dwelling house, orchard & barn with two acres of meadow," 75 [MD 2:155-57; Small Gen 818-24].


Frequent trips to England, especially in the 1620s and 1630s, on personal and colony business. In early 1621, after the death of John Carver, William Bradford was chosen Governor, and "Isaac Allerton was chosen to be an assistant unto him who, by renewed election every year, continued sundry years together" [Bradford 86]. Chosen Assistant, 1 January 1633/4 [PCR 1:21].
ESTATE: In the 1623 Plymouth land division "Mr. Isaak Alerton" received seven acres [PCR 12:4; MQ 40:10]. In the 1627 Plymouth cattle division Mr. Isaac Allerton, his wife Feare Allerton, Bartholomew Allerton, Remember Allerton, Mary Allerton and Sarah Allerton were the first six persons in the second company [PCR 12:9]."


"In his list of Mayflower passengers Bradford included "Mr. Isaac Allerton and Mary his wife, with three children, Bartholomew, Remember and Mary. And a servant boy John Hooke" [Bradford 441]. In his 1651 accounting of these families, he reported that "Mr. Allerton his wife died with the first, and his servant John Hooke. His son Bartle is married in England but I know not how many children he hath. His daughter Remember is married at Salem and hath three or four children living. And his daughter Mary is married here and hath four children. Himself married again with the daughter of Mr. Brewster and hath one son living by her, but she is long since dead. And he is married again and hath left this place long ago. So I account his increase to be eight, besides his son's in England" [Bradford 444-45].
Isaac Allerton was one of the busiest and most complicated men in early New England, and no attempt is made here to cover his career comprehensively. A full-scale biography would be needed for that, and an outline of what is available is given in the next section below. Records for Allerton may be found in virtually every colony on the Atlantic seaboard and in the Caribbean, including Newfoundland, New Netherland, New Sweden, Virginia, Barbadoes, and Curacao.
Although some records of Allerton in New Netherland describe him as "of Suffolk," it is not certain that this refers to his place of origin in England, as some have claimed.
In noting his various residences above, we do not estimate years of removal, as he seems to have maintained residences simultaneously at more than one location. Also, the attempt made above to describe the estate of Allerton does not come close to showing the magnitude and intricacy of his business activities. No one has yet tried to survey comprehensively this, the major part of Allerton's life. Since Moses Maverick, the husband of Remember Allerton, received Isaac Allerton's estate at Marblehead, and Isaac Jr. received his father's estate at New Haven, it is likely that Thomas and Mary (Allerton) Cushman were at some time given Allerton's property at Plymouth (assuming that there was more at Plymouth than the debt assigned by Allerton to Cushman in 1646 [PCR 2:133]).


BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: The descendants of Isaac Allerton were treated extensively by Walter S. Allerton about a century ago, but this account is now obsolete [A History of the Allerton Family in the United States, 1585 to 1885... (New York 1888, rev. 1900)].
More recently Lora Underhill published an extremely detailed account of Isaac Allerton and his children [Small Gen 756-851]. Although this version of the life of Isaac Allerton has been shown to have errors, and although many new discoveries have been made, it has great value because it attempts to cite every record in which Allerton ever appeared (as available in 1934), and prints many of the records in full.
Much of the modern research on Allerton has been carried out by Newman Hall, presented in a series of periodical articles [NEHGR 124:133; MQ 45:23-24, 47:14-18; Virginia Genealogist 32:83-92, 171-78, 287-96; MD 40:7-10]. More recently Robert S. Wakefield has prepared the four-generation "genealogy in progress" published by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants [Isaac Allerton of the Mayflower... (Plymouth 1990)].
For a different interpretation of the character of Isaac Allerton, see Michael McGiffert, "Religion and Profit Do Jump Together: The First American Pilgrim," Reflections 87:15-23 (a publication of Yale Divinity School)."

"Isaac Sr was the 5th signer Mayflower Pact and first Pilgrim who died in CT- buried Grove St. Cemetery in New haven, CT.Agent for Plimoth (sic) colonists, his home is replicated @ Plimoth plantation, Plymouth, MA."


"The assertion is made in The TUCKER Genealogy that Rose, the fourth wife of John NEWTON, was an ALLERTON, of the family of Isaac ALLERTON of the Mayflower. While there were certainly close relationships between the ALLERTON family and the NEWTON family, including the marriage of John NEWTON's oldest son, John NEWTON, Jr., to Mary ALLERTON, I am aware of no proof that Rose was an ALLERTON. However, since it's an interesting theory and an impressive family to tie into, I'll set out a short history of the ALLERTON family through the year of Rose's birth, about 1629.


Isaac ALLERTON was a tailor from London, who married Mary NORRIS, or perhaps Mary COLLINS, on November 4, 1611. His sister Sarah married Degory PRIEST at the same date and place. The parents of Isaac and Sarah may be Edward ALLERTON and Rose DAVIS who married at St. Dionis,
Backchurch, London, on February 14, 1579/80. Both Isaac ALLERTON and PRIEST were freemen, a distinction among the Pilgrims of the Mayflower that they shared only with the later governor of the Colony, William BRADFORD. Isaac ALLERTON, his wife Mary, and his son Bartholomew and daughters Remember and Mary were on the Mayflower in 1620. There was a sailor on the Mayflower named John ALLERTON who intended to settle in the new colony, but he died before the ship made the return voyage. His relationship to the others is not clear. Mary, Mrs. Isaac ALLERTON, died February 25, 1621.


About 1626, Isaac married his second wife, Fear BREWSTER, daughter of Elder William BREWSTER. Fear died at Plymouth on December 12, 1634. They were the parents of Col. Isaac ALLERTON, born about 1630, who after his mother's death was raised by his paternal grandfather. It was this Isaac ALLERTON who lived next to John NEWTON.


Until the death of Fear in December of 1634, the events of Isaac ALLERTON's life in America are well documented, and no other children were born. He left the Bay Colony after a rift developed between him and the leadership of the Colony, had a wife named Johanna in 1644, settled in New Havens and traded with the Dutch of New Amsterdam.


The children of Isaac ALLERTON were:


Bartholomew who was born in Holland about 1612, who came with his family to Plymouth, where he still was in 1627, but returned soon after to England, where, according to Bradford, he married and continued to live.
Remember, a daughter, living in Plymouth in 1627 and not heard of after.
Mary, born in 1616, married Elder Thomas CUSHMAN of Plymouth. She died in 1699, the last survivor of the Mayflower pilgrims.
Sarah was another daughter who did not come on the Mayflower but came later with her aunt, Mrs. CUTHBERTSON, in 1623. She MARRIED MOSES MAVERICK and had children.
Isaac, born about 1630, who graduated from Harvard in the seventh graduating class and who settled in Virginia beside the NEWTONs.


The most promising part of this for finding a line for Rose appears to be the son Bartholomew who, according to Gov. William Bradford, married after returning to England. There were fairly frequent passages across the ocean, considering the circumstance. The Isaac ALLERTON who under this theory would be Rose' grandfather (and whose mother's name was Rose) returned to England at least five times." By Mary Love, McNabb Family.

Capt. Thomas LUCAS Sr. "the immigrant"

ABT 1610 - 1674

ID Number: I22940


Family 1 : Margaret
  1. +Mary LUCAS

Notes


Still a mystery is the relationship of Margaret to Mary (Underwood? Hill?), wife of More FAUNTLEROY (See Below)


Margaret married in 1657 in Old Rappa. Co VA, Capt. Thomas LUCAS: 10 Apr 1657 (Rappa. Records, Vol. 1656-64, p. 33) Marriage agreement between Capt. Thomas LUCAS the Elder of Rappahannock in Virginia, Gentleman, Coll. Moore FAUNTLEROY and Captain William UNDERWOOD, all of the county aforesaid - in consideration of a marriage (God willing) shortly to be solemnized between Thomas LUCAS and Margaret UPTON, late wife of Capt. John UPTON deceased------but if said Margaret UPTON should happen to survive the said Coll. Moore FAUNTLEROY and Captain William UNDERWOOD and their heirs, administrators, etc., that all of the estate will return to her the said Margaret UPTON.
