Death: 1698

BASIC INFO: Ralph Allen (1615-1698) was born in England, and came to Massachusetts circa 1635. Ralph was the child of George Allen (1568-1648). In America, he worked as a planter and a wheelwright. About 1645, Ralph married Susanna in Massachusetts. Ralph first lived in the Plymouth Colony, then in Sandwich. In 1657, when Quakerism began spreading through the colony, Ralph and six of his siblings were the first to be converted. This led to the Allens being persecuted and fined for many years. Ralph Allen died in 1698 in Sandwich. CHILD: Increase Allen (1660-1723).

PROBATE: Ralph made out his will at Sandwich on 18 December 1691. This will was probated 1 Jul 1698.

BURIAL: Ralph Allen was a Quaker. At the time of his death in Sandwich, the only Quaker cemetery was the Friends Burying Place. No marker has been found, probably because it was the original Quaker custom not to mark the graves.

SOURCES: has five records for Ralph: a "Family Data Collection - Births" record, a "Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, 1500s-1900s" record, a "U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900" record, a "Family Data Collection - Deaths" record, and a "Millennium File" record. Information also appears in "The Pioneers of Massachusetts," by Charles Henry Pope.
