James came to Dedham, MA about 1637. He was a proprieter there in 1642 and took the freeman's oath in 1647. He married Anna (Ann) Guild on Mar. 16, 1638 in Dedham, MA. They had at least 7 children: John, Martha & Mary (twins, Martha is our ancestor), Sarah, James, Nathaniel and Joseph. He came to Medfield with the first 13 proprieters and the fifth to be granted land. He drew his house lot of 7 acres on South Street. About 1653 he was granted another 6 acres. It is certain that he was living there in 1660. (From "The History of Medfield, MA") A copy of his will is printed in the Allen Family book by Frank Hutchinson, dated 23 Sep 1676. He gave his house, barn, etc., to his son-in-law Joseph Clark and his homestead (South Street, he owned 2 places) to his son Nathaniel.
James was reportedly the grand son of Reginald Allin of Colby, Norfolk, England.
