Ethan Allen is a descendant of Samuel Allen of Windsor, Connecticut (born 1588...more like 1608 and died in Windsor Ct April 24, 1648. The link beyond Samuel is not known, except to say that he came from England in 1630-32 on the ship Mary and John and originally settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts. There is a book available from Higginson Book Company out of Salem Massachusetts that can reprint a book by Orrin Peer Allen that outlines all the descendants of this Samuel. I know the exact line of Samuel but not off the top of my head. please e-mail me at email@example.com and I will look up his line back to Samuel and give it to you. I too am a descendant of Samuel...Please note that there is another Samuel of Braintree, Massachusetts that "our Samuel" is often confused with. They are not the same person.
