History of the Allen Family

This family history records descendants of John Allen of London, England born ?1585. The early Allen family name entered England with William the Conqueror of Normandy, Franc, in 1066 AD. Normandy had been settled by the Norwegian Viking King Rollo and his followers in 911 AD. The Allens of England were investors in the Virginia Company of the early 1600s; members of the family immigrated to Virginia in 1638. The Allens would ultimately obtain sizable acreages within Albemarle and Buckingham counties, Virginia. Their marriages would be to women of prominent families. Of note, Mary Hunt Minge Allen (1695-1763), wife of William Allen (1692-1752), upon his death, married Field Jefferson, the uncle of Thomas Jefferson.

Participation in the Revolutionary War of 1776 has been noted. Following this period, the family moved to the new State of Tennessee in the early 1800s. Following the Civil War, family members moved to the new frontier of Texas in 1870 and ultimately the Oklahoma Territory in 1904.
