I have some info on a Charles Taylor Allen who was born in Oldham England on 20 Feb 1835. His father was James Allen b.18/09/1817 in Hollinwood England, died 17/09/1871 in Maryborough Queensland. He was married to Eleanor Armstrong b. 11/5/1817 in Preston England. Charles had 8 siblings of which 5 lived more than 5 years. I belive the family may haved moved to Australia after 1857 because the 9th child was born in England in that year. My great grandmother was Sarah Allen she was child number 8. Charles was the first child. This may or may not be relevant but it doesn't hurt to try.
