Most of the early Allens in Pomfret, CT were from Roxbury, Rehoboth and Dedham (Medfield), MA.In particular descendants of James Allen of Dedham.James' grandsons, Daniel, David and Samuel Allen came to Woodstock, Pomfret and Ashland in the early 1700's.They came with their maternal uncle, Benjamin Sabin, who you will find in most of the history books on Windham County, CT.
Daniel b 1681 David b. 1683were both sons of Joseph and Hannah (SABIN) ALLEN.Joseph was the son of James ALLEN mentioned above.Joseph purchased land for Daniel and David in the Pomfret area.
Samuel Allen b. 1673 was the son of Nathaniel and Mary (SABIN) ALLEN.Nathaniel was also a son of James.I am working on getting more proof regarding Samuel moving to the Pomfret area also.I do believe that this was the Samuel who married Patience Polley in 1706.Patience died in 1711 and Samuel remarried Jane Younglove 1714 and had other children. I have seven Timothy ALLENs in this line born between 1729 and 1789, but all in the Sturbridge, Medfield, MA area. Haven't traced any of them to NY yet.
