I am searching for any information regarding the Allens of Liverpool, UK ...my great grandfather was George Allen born approx 1889, who married Alice Eccles. He was a Merchant Seaman working out of the Mersey docks, as was his father before him - Job Allen. Job ran a pub in Toxteth after leaving the merchant navy and later owned a Livery and Carrying company and several Ironmongery shops in Liverpool.
If you have any information about this branch of the family I would be grateful.
Strangely enough I have Allens on both sides of my family and am interested to find out if or where they cross over as they had no knowledge of each other - my Great Grandfather on the other side was Arthur Owen Allen born 1882 in Australia, who married Emily Jane Snoad in Victoria.
