Birth: unknown
Death: Feb. 18, 1729
Norfolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Henry's birth date and birth place are unknown. However, he would have been born prior to 1667 since he was rated at Billerica in 1688. At the time of his death Needham was part of Suffolk County in the Province of Massachusetts Bay.

Attempts have been made to place him in the family of John Alden of the Mayflower; however, no proof has been presented to corroborate this assumption.

Henry was first married to Deborah whose last name has not been learned. Their children were Deborah, Susannah, Alice, Thomas, Henry, John, and William.

He married secondly Elizabeth Coller/Collier on 15 August 1719 at Weston, Massachusetts. They were both of Natick at the time. They had no children. It is possible that this Elizabeth was Elizabeth Ross, widow of John Coller. They were the parents of Thomas Coller who married Alice Alden, daughter of Henry and Deborah.

Henry "Alldin" was one of the signers of the Petition for the Incorporation of Needham. The petition requested that a portion of Dedham be made into a new town called Needham. The original document is in the State Archives. His gravestone (which appears to be fairly recent) bears his signature as it appears on the petition.
