Priscilla Brown is the wife of William Allen of Sandwich.They were married 21 Apr 1649 in Sandwich.

Please add this interesting information:
William Allen of Sandwich, Massachusetts, was greatly persecuted for his
membership in the early Quaker meetings there. He was fined, "and they left him
but one cow", the marshal George Barlow, also took the goodwife's kettle; "Now
Priscilla, how wilt thou cook for thy family and friends? Thee has no kettle.
She answered, George, that God who hears the ravens when they cry will provide
for them. I trust in that God, and I verily believe the time will come when thy
necessity will be greater than mine." This drunken marshal and tool of
Plymouth's blind policy is said to have lived to fulfill abundantly Priscilla
Allen's prophecy. (from The Society of Friends in Barnstable County, Mass -
John Hoag Dillingham)
