General Notes: Husband - William Allen

Data on this Allen family has been published in the William and Mary Quarterly, vol. 22 (1913). Data is also to be found in the Register of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., Va.; Henry T. Allen, "Allen," Register of the Kentucky Historical Society 28 (1930), pp. 71-88; Norma Carter Miller and George Lane Miller, Allens of the Southern States (Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1989), p. 10; and in Boddie, Historical Southern Families, vol. III. See also, Mrs. William Breckenridge Ardery, "Allen Family," from the series Early Bourbon Families published in a Bourbon Co., KY, newspaper, 1945.

It should be noted that NONE of the ancestral lineages suggested for this William Allen has been proven. In particular, the one given in Worth Ray, Tennessee Cousins, was certainly incorrect. I am not fully persuaded that the one adopted by Wicker is correct, either.

Capt. William Allen [Boddie 16-17: "William Allin, of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent married secondly, Mary Hunt, born May 15, 1695, died March 8, 1763, daughter of William Hunt of Charles City County, and widow of Robert Minge. (S.V.F. 2-325). William Allin's will was dated August 1751, in Albemarle, probated November 7, 1751. He names wife MARY, sons: VALENTINE (W.B. A-33)".]


General Notes: Wife - Hannah Watson

According to a letter dated 13 July 1995 from Dr. R. F. Wicker, Jr., 5136 Violet Bank Drive, Virginia Beach, VA 23464-5643, the maiden name of William Allen's first wife was Hannah Watson. This was based on a quotation from Mrs. Frances E. Pollick: "The reason we determined that Hannah was probably a Watson was because of Benjamin Watson's will dated 16 Mar 1715, recorded 4 April 1715, Henrico Parish, in which he names his brother in Law, William Allen."

This is not conclusive documentation: Benjamin Watson could have married a sister of William Allen or, given the customary linguistic usage of the time, been his stepbrother.

Mrs. Pollick continued: "Although Benjamin Watson was of Henrico Parish and William and Hannah Allen were living in New Kent at the time he seems to have been the only William Allen in the area. Elizabeth Allen who married Samuel Allen's son, Archer was the daughter of James Allen of PE County. This branch of Allens had Watson connections but there didn't appear to be any William's mentioned. A Hannah Watson witnessed the will of Elizabeth's father recoreded [sic] in 1793 in Prince Edward County."

Dr. Wicker added: "She goes on to state that Samuel is a Watson name and that the traditional naming pattern would have named the son after her father, Samuel. No one else has even come close with a name so Watson it is." This cannot be regarded as adequate proof of the name or relationship.

Wicker makes the same "Watson" identification for the maiden name of Hannah in his subsequent book: Richard Fenton Wicker, Jr., The Allen Family of England, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Misssissippi, Texas and Illinois 1600-1995: The Descendants of Captain William Allen and his Wives, Hannah Watson and Mary Hunt Minge (Baltimore, MD: Gateway Press, 1995), pp. 6-11, 14. While making many useful additions and corrections concerning the descendants of this William Allen, he still did not adduce persuasive proof for Hannah's maiden name.

----------------------------------

Excursus: The "Millington" name.

It had traditionally been thought that the maiden name of Joyce, wife of John Easley Jr., might be Millington, in order to explain that name's being used in this branch of the Easley family only (see, for example, the comments of Kirby Easley Johnson in Our Easley Family and their Relatives, p. 25). Further research is now necessary to determine why it was used. The following references to the surname Millington have been found in early Virginia records:

Nugent, Cavaliers and Pioneers, p. 561. Pat. Bk. 5, p. 519. 10 July 1666. AN: Millington headright for Anthony Matthews.

Henrico Co., VA, Deeds, Wills, Etc., 1688-1697, p. 80. 14 August 1689. Deed from Giles Webb to Daniel Blanch. Among the wits.: Phillis Millington.

1692 William Millington mentioned in New Kent Co., VA.

Register of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., Va. Margaret, dau. of William Millington Jr., baptized 5 November 169 .

Quit Rents of 1704 (Landowners of Va.). William Millington, New Kent Co., 200 acres. William Millington Jr., New Kent Co., 450 acres.

New Kent Co., VA, 14 June 1710. William Millington died.

New Kent Co., VA, 9 November 1710. "Widow Millington" mentioned.

York Co., VA, 1711. Inventory of estate for Samuel Millington.

Weisiger, Benjamin B. III. Colonial Wills of Henrico County, Virginia. Vol. II, p. 101. Miscellaneous Henrico County Court Records 1650-1800, vol. 7. p. 2343. Undated, late 17th or early 18th c. Accounts due Mr. Thomas Clayton. Mentions: William Millington.

Millington Allen m. Celia Pickens, 7 July 1825, Allen Co., KY.

So far, there is no evidence of a direct connection between the early Easleys and any of these Millington families. A clue might be sought in the maiden name of Hannah, wife of William Allen.
