Vestry Book of Henrico Parish, by Brock (Henrico County, Virginia) "Edward Allen" appears to be the same person as "Edmond Allen."[page 24 and 56 of the abovebook have the following:] page 24:Pursuant to an Act of Assembly of this Colony in Obedience to an order of Henrico Co. Court Dec. 1, 1735, the Vestry [of Henrico Parish] orders Edward Allen, John Ferris, and Richard Williamson, with assistance of neighboring free holders, before March 31 next, to procession and renew bounds between William Lewis's Bore Swamp, the Main Sup, and Seven Pines Road. [page 29 refers to a report that this duty was completed except for a line between Capt. James Cocke and Thomas Matthews.] page 56:Joseph Watson and Joseph Childers hath seen Richard Williamson's land processioned, and Martin Martin's land processioned and Edward Allen's....ditto....and Elizabeth Mottherwiler's land, all but one line between Capt. James Cocke and her, we can't find; and Charles Winfrey's land processioned; Thomas East's land processioned; Joseph Childers; Capt James Cocke, his land NOT processioned, we can't find any line;Elizabeth Morton not processioned...can't find line between Capt James Cocke and her; Thomas Elmore, one tract not processioned; the land where he lives IS processioned; John Ferris, his land processioned.[Signed by vestrymen James Powell Cocke and James Cocke.No date, but this was in with the reports from 1740s.] [Note:this "pretty-much says it all about who the close neighbors of Edmond Allen were at this time....jeb.] Edmond Allen began receiving payments by the Vestry for his "idiot son" in 1737.This continued every year in varying amounts of money through 1750.Beginning in 1751 Mary Allen began receiving the payments for her "idiot son."This continues through the year 1762, which was the final year it was mentioned.I have no idea who the son was, or why the Vestry helped out in this circumstance, but the information gives us a clue to the death date of Edmond Allen, or at least his inability to collect the payment.It also gives us a specific name for his wife.
