|Death: ||Feb. 1, 1670|
Baptized Braunton, Devonshire, 17 April 1605, son of Richard and Margaret (Wyott) Allen. Merchant from Braunton, Devonshire who came to Massachusetts Bay in 1633. First settled in Cambridge; moved to Hartford in 1636, & Windsor by 1648. Died in Windsor CT 1 February 1670/1.
Married at Braunton, Devonshire, 2 February 1626/7, "Mris. Margret Wyot;" admitted to Windsor church 5 August 1649 (and she had probably also been a member of the Cambridge/Hartford church); died Windsor 12 September 1675.
Brother of Thomas Allyn of Barnstable, Plymouth Colony, as may be seen by following carefully the many entries for both Matthew and Thomas in Lechford, especially p. 418 which explicitly links the Barnstable man with Braunton in Devonshire. Thomas Allen of Wethersfield was a different man and not related to this family, nor was Samuel Allen of Windsor any relation [ Hale, House 447-48]. (Matthew Allyn's extensive litigation of 1650 was with his brother Thomas Allyn of Barnstable, and not with Thomas Allen of Wethersfield.)
Matthew Allyn was in some way related to WILLIAM SPENCER of Cambridge and Hartford, or, more probably, to his wife, Agnes Harris.
