Can you be more precise about WHEN (time period) and WHERE (exact locations) these folks were living ? It almost sounds like you are referring to people who may still be alive, but I'm not sure of that.
Might your ALLAN people have given their name in the 19th century to the Allan Street in Central Halifax ?
Don't know a lot about your ALLAN family, but the spelling of the other name is almost certainly HATTIE. They are mainly found in Yarmouth and Digby areas in the southern tip of NS, but a few live in Dartmouth, Waverley, and Sackville areas of Metro Halifax. This would be about ½ hour drive from Windsor which is the county seat for Hants County, NS.
There are also a few HATTIE names in Pictou County, around New Glasgow, Pictou, Stellarton, and Sunnybrae, with a few scattered ones over by Maryvale, Antigonish County and Canso in Guysborough County. These are all 1½ to 3 hours drive north from Halifax.

Pictou County is located on the central north shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. The first settlers arrived from Philadelphia on June 10, 1767 on the brigantine “Betsey”. In September, 1773 about 200 immigrants arrived from Scotland on the “Hector”. Much of the culture of the County today can be attributed to these Scottish immigrants. Many soldiers of the 82nd Hamilton Regiment began settling in Pictou County in the fall of 1783 after peace was made with the United States. From 1767 to 1849, the great period of British emigration; approximately 120 ships arrived in Pictou County carrying immigrants from Scotland, England and Ireland.
Guysborough County NS (second largest in area and smallest in population in NS) - http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Acres/6783/INDEX.HTMhttp://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Acres/6783/INDEX.HTM - “Guysborough Sketches and Essays” by A C Jost who lived in and around the Guysborough area from around 1784-85, and “History of Guysborugh County” by H C Hart. German mercenaries in the British Army during the American Revolution were mustered out in Halifax and given grants of land in the Guysborough area. White and black United Empire Loyalists settled ca 1784. A “forgotten corner of NS” with no railroad or major roads, it has recently come alive because of offshore oil and gas pipelines coming ashore there.
