The ALLEN Patrilineage 1 Descendancies

These patrilineal descendancies closely follow what the members of this project have submitted, and are both plausible and generally backed by evidence. They are also generally consistent with the best published secondary sources listed in the project bibliography. Although there are areas of weakness in these lineages, due to less than exhaustive research, or to inherently sketchy records, a significant and ongoing effort is being made to ensure that what is posted here in abbreviated form represents the best current thinking on these patrilineal descent trees.

Each descendancy begins with the earliest known patriarch of a particular line, and follows the patriline down as far as it is known, and at least to its culmination in a DNA-tested descendant. Since this DNA patrilineage project is focused on tested or testable males of the patriline, these descendancy trees have generally been pruned of daughters or stepchildren of previously married wives. On the other hand, known brothers of project member’s ancestors have been included, and in some cases their patrilineal descendancies have been followed as well, to facilitate the identification of testable patrilineal descendants (living males who in most cases bear the focal surname). Where one of these collateral male lines is known to have petered out (or daughtered out), it will be flagged “no known sons”, NKSons, or words to that effect.

The information provided for each male ALLEN should be just sufficient in most cases to uniquely identify him in the USCensus and other readily available sources. They are not meant to be complete genealogies. The headnotes for each patriarch identify the principal researcher(s) of that line, and often contain links to relevant webpages, compilations, or more complete genealogical material.

The data posted below for each male of the patriline comprise (insofar as is known): his date and place of birth, date and place of death, the name(s) of his wife (or wives), and the date and place his marriage(s). The data are presented in a standardized abbreviated format designed to facilitate scanning and CTL-F searching.

Specific dates (where known) are abbreviated to year dates. Dates that aren’t known specifically, or which aren’t backed by uncontroverted evidence are qualified as either approximate (“abt”, “bef”, “aft”, or “by”), or where they are merely guesstimated, by (“say”). Approximated dates imply supporting evidence which merely fails of complete accuracy, while “say” dates are guesstimates based on typical patterns of the time, place, and social group.

Places are abbreviated to the most important jurisdictional place where records are to be found: for most US states/colonies these are counties; for New England, towns. Places should be specified only where there is either direct evidence, or overwhelming circumstantial evidence, that a vital event occurred in that place and none other, and they shouldn’t be over-specified with respect to the actual supporting evidence.

The yDNA-tested male descendants in whom these descendancies culminate are flagged below with the ShortName of the Principal Researcher of their line (the person who represents the descendant’s haplotype), and by the Project# for the membership, for example, Donald-05, Camilla-06.

Notes about the ySTR DNA mutations that mark particular lineages have been interwoven below in red text. Notes about upstream mutations distinctive of particular family sub-branches have been inserted in the descendancy at the point at which they begin to be relevant, and where those same mutations have been inherited by tested descendants, this has been noted right after the name(s) of the tested descendant and Principal Researcher of the line. Please note, however, the careful qualifications in these DNA notes. Most inferences drawn from DNA evidence are probabilistic in nature and one needs to keep an open mind about alternative interpretations, just as one does with the genealogy itself.

The ALLEN Patrilineage 1 Descendancies

The Top of the ALLEN Tree

What is posted here, though evidence based, is somewhat more hypothetical than the more specific descendancies that follow, and is considerably more subject to change. It represents the most straightforward reconstruction of the top of the ALLEN tree, considering both the DNA evidence (chiefly the state of the DYS504 marker that provides a watershed for all the tested descendants of this patrilineage, and the early genealogical evidence, which is very scant for the mother counties of New Kent, and later Hanover, on the Virginia tidewater.

In fact, it is precisely because of the scantness of the early evidence, and the likelihood that it will never be significantly supplemented, that I have somewhat relaxed my usual conservative criteria for posting lineages. It is crucial to both scientific and historical research to develop a clear working hypothetical structure, both to guide the search for possible new evidence, or new interpretations of the existing evidence, and to facilitate the evaluation of new evidence or interpretations that may arise.

The top of the tree structure I have created below represents the most straightforward interpretation of the evidence we have, and it incorporates the two latest increments of knowledge.

First, I have added David ALLEN as the father of the existing patriarchs Reynold of IredellCoNC, William ALLEN of MecklenburgCoVA, and also David of SpartanburgCoSC. This likely relationship was outlined in MILLERS, and has long been suspected, but in consideration of the new DNA evidence that has resulted from all the extensions to 111 markers, and a bit of new research I’ve done on the BrunswickCoVA records, prompted by project member Rob Allen who has trodden the same path, has now rendered this relationship conclusive, in my opinion.

The other important new addition comes to us thanks to the excellent research of Bill Simmons of BataonRougeLA, and to the DNA test that my fellow ALLEN surname project administrator, Diane Click, has sponsored for a male ALLEN descendant of Bill's line, working with Bill. Although Bill himself will not be an active member of the project, he has published a first rate book, , a copy of which he has donated to the project, and I have agreed to represent him and his work here as principal genealogist for his line. I have, in fact, supplemented his work extensively both through my own research, and by cannabalizing extensive compilations of North Carolina ALLEN abstracts sponsored, again, by Diane Click. For now, I have time only to post my conclusions in this area, but I will be publishing an analytical paper discussing the evidence for these conclusions in due course. So without further ado....

Early ALLEN Patriarchal Descendancies: Robert of Henrico County, VA

invisible writing

1-Robert Allen of New Kent, Hanover, Goochland, and Henrico Counties, VA, born say 1680

Sources: This Robert descendancy is the main focus of MILLERS, and except for the final generations connecting to the present, has been derived from MILLERS by John B. Robb.  It should be noted, however, that Melba Allen of Mississippi has an entirely different reconstruction of the top of this Allen tree.   Donna Bailey, who is a descendant of this line through Robert->Robert->Josiah of South Carolina, has furnished additional material for her more recent ancestors.

1-Robert Allen (say 1680 - abt 1756 HenricoCoVA)

The mutation DYS447- probably appears early downstream of the patriarch Robert.

---m1. say 1706 Elizabeth [WALKER?]

|--2-William Allen (say 1707 NewKentCoVA - abt 1785 GranvilleCoNC)

|   |   The evidence that this William of GranvilleCoNC was a son of Robert is his removal abt 1758

|   |   to GranvilleCoNC where he settled adjacent to putative brother, Drury, who was born in 1714.

|   |   William of GranvilleCoNC made a will in 1781 naming 13 children, including 10 daughters, of whom

|   |   Ursula (born 16Feb1728 to his first wife, and listed first in the will) was presumably the oldest.

|   |   This requires us to postulate a much earlier birth date for William than is found in MILLERS (q.v. 33,34,241).

|   ---m1. say 1727 Anne OWEN

|   |--3-Ursula Allen (1728 -), and four other daughters.

|   ---m2. say 1744 Frances GRANT

|   |--3-Hannah Allen (say 1745 -)

|   |   And there are 4 more daughters to fit into this family; sons and daughters are listed separately in the will.

|--2-Robert Allen (say 1709 NewKentCoVA - abt 1783 CaswellCoNC)

|   |   My guesstimate for Robert’s birth date is based on the fact that he first appears in the records of NewKentCo

|   |   in 1735 as a co-security with his father (Robert and Robert Jr) for John Pulliam’s widow and executrix,

|   |   because he is the grantee of his father’s deed of gift only later that year, and because before 1735

|   |   all the references to Robert of NewKentCo are unqualified by Sr or Jr (see abstracts in MILLERS 14).

Early ALLEN Patriarchal Descendancies: William of Mecklenburg County, VA

invisible writing

1-William Allen of Mecklenburg County, VA, born say 1725

SourcesDr. Bob Allen, and Diane Allen;
with additions by John B. Robb based on MILLERS, ALLENS OF CRIBBS CREEK, and the USCensus.

The mutation DYS504- occurred just upstream of William and his close relative Reynold of IredellCoNC,
and marks all of their patrilineal descendants.

The mutation CDYb- that’s shared by William’s descendants, Dr.Bob-04, and Diane-22, but not by Lynda-09 or John-18, raises a small question. It probably occurred independently in the lines of Dr.Bob (who descended from William’s son Drury), and Diane (descended from son Meredith), but otherwise, since Lynda (also descended from son Drury) lacks this mutation, it suggests that Dr.Bob is also descended from son Meredith.

Early ALLEN Patriarchal Descendancies: William of Albemarle County, VA

1-William Allen of New Kent, Goochland, and Albemarle Counties, Virginia, born say 1687

Sources:  The major published source for this line is WICKER. Bill A. Allen, Donald Allen, and Rev. Rod Allen tie into this line, and the first two of these have published books which not only mesh with WICKER, but also elaborate their own lineages provide much colorful anecdotal and background information that brings their genealogy to life. The Rev. Rod has sponsored primary records research covering most of the few extant records of Buckingham County, Virginia, whence most descendant lineages have sprung. See Bill_A_ALLEN, and Donald_ALLEN.

The Unconnected Descendancy of James T. ALLEN of Wise County, TX

James T’s descendant, Bill_B-01 has the DYS504- mutation, which strongly suggests that James T descends either from the William of MecklenburgCoVA line, or from Reynold Allen of IredellCoNC.

The descendants of James T. Allen share the DYS413a- mutation, which presumably occurred shortly upstream of James;

1-Pleasant BYBEE of Albemarle and Fluvanna Counties, VA, born abt 1758

SourcesBetty Bybee Verplank and Hal Bybee.

   At least one line of BYBEEs goes back to the 1620s, and the first generation of Virginia settlers.
Chances are that the BYBEE and ALLEN lines crossed in Virginia in the mid to late 1600s.

Since he lacks the DYS504- mutation, Hal is not a descendant of ALLEN patriarchs William of Mecklenburg or Reynold.

1-Frank Harris of Marion County, Alabama, born say 1850

SourcesSandra Hunt

Has no mutations through 111 markers that would point to any particular ALLEN family sub-branch. All we can say is that he probably descends either from the patriarchs Robert Allen of NewKentCoVA, or William of AlbemarleCoVA, but not from William of MecklenburgCoVA or Reynold of IredellCoNC.

1-Robert N. Nesbitt of Hunt County, TX, born 1831 in TN

SourcesGeoff Nesbitt

Geoff-11 has no mutations through 37 markers and needs to be extended to 111 markers to see whether he descends from William of MecklenburgCoVA or Reynold of IredellCoNC, and perhaps also from a family sub-branch defined by one or another of the 13 (and counting) members who have extended to 111.
