     There is much confusion about the identity of our William Reed. The Reed Genealogy claims that he was born 1605 and married either Avis Deacon or Avis Chapman (according to the Boston Transcript 1914).

Torrey has him marrying Avis Chapman/Chepman in England 26 Oct 1635.

GM adds as a comment: "There were at least two William Reads who resided at Weymouth in its earliest days, the subject of the current sketch and another of the same name who arrived in town around 1650 with wife Avis." The 1650 William is no0 doubt our William.

The account further states, "The prior literature on this William Read and the other William Reads of Weymouth and Boston contains so much confusion and error that no attempt will be made here to address and correct all problems."1,2,3,4
William was born at England in 1605.5 He married Avis Chapman at Long Sutton, Somersetshire, England, on 26 October 1635. Weymouth History notes that ". . . but it must be remembered that no positive proof has yet been obtained which shows that the Long Sutton man and the Weymouth man were one and the same William Reed except the name Avis.".6,7,8,9 William Reed immigrated circa 1650 at probably to Weymouth, Norfolk, Massachusetts.3 William died between 26 November 1651 and 6 April 1658 at Weymouth, Norfolk, Massachusetts.

George Allen

M, b. circa 1582, d. April 1648
ChartsRoger C. Wood Pedigree Chart
Margaret E. Spaulding Pedigree Chart
ImmigrantY
     George Allen, the immigrant ancestor of many of the Allen families found in America
today, arrived in Massachusetts Bay Colony on 6 May 1635 from England. George
Allen’s name, along with the names of those individuals he came with (106 in all),
was found on a list of passengers who departed Weymouth, England for the New
World on 20 March 1635. Unfortunately, the name of the ship they traveled aboard
has never been determined. This party, which was under the leadership of the Rev.
Joseph Hull, was granted leave on 8 July 1635 to settle at Wessaguscus Plantation
by the General Court at Boston. Wessaguscus was soon given municipal rights, at
which time it was renamed Weymouth, and its inhabitants were allowed
representation in the General Court at Boston.
Although it is not known for sure, George Allen may have been born in either
Somersetshire, or Dorsetshire, England, or have at least resided in one of these
places prior to emigrating. Lending some support for this belief is the fact that the
Rev. Joseph Hull, and many of the other families that emigrated with George, appear
to have been from one of these shires.
Although George Allen is known to have married twice while still residing in England,
the name of his first wife has not been determined. His second wife, however, was a
woman named Katherine. Katherine accompanied George to America, and is
believed to have been the mother of his five youngest children. According to the
roster of passengers making up the Hull party, Katherine was listed as being thirty
years old in 1635, thereby indicating that she had probably been born in about 1605
in England.

(NOTE: Although one commonly sees postings and family write-ups that indicate
that our George Allen is the George Allen who married as his second wife, Katherine
Starkes, on 5 November 1624 in All Hallows Church, Honey Lane, London, I know of
absolutely no documentation that would support that this is the same George Allen.
On the contrary, there is evidence that suggests that this George Allen was the son
of Richard Allen of the Tower of London, and that he was still residing in London,
England as late as 1640, when he was mentioned in his brother, Henry Allen's, will.
This George Allen is also believed to be the same George Allen who died at St.
Michael Queenhithe, London on 26 March 1664.
In addition to the above, it has also been accepted by some that our George Allen
was the son of John Allen of Saltford in Somersetshire, England. As with the above
assertion, there is absolutely no evidence that I know of to substantiate this. There
is, however, strong evidence that indicates that this George Allen was still residing at
Saltford in 1638, when he was involved in a court case regarding tenements in the
Tything of Saltford. By 1638, our George Allen was already well established at
Sandwich on Cape Cod. Aside from the fact that a person named George Allen was
identified as living in Saltford, England during the 1630's, any connection to our
George Allen appears to be based more on conjecture than supportable facts.
The same also appears to be true regarding the assertion that our George Allen was
the son of Ralph Allen of Thurcaston, England. Even though there were two
individuals named Ralph Allen who were associated with our George Allen in New
Plymouth Colony, I am not aware of any evidence, other than name similarity, to
support this contention either).
Although no records have been found to substantiate it, shortly after settling at
Wessaguscus (Weymouth), George Allen and his family may have moved to the
village of Saugus, Massachusetts (now Lynn, Massachusetts). Sometime during the
period 1637/1638, however, George and his family apparently moved again, this time
to the newly organized settlement in New Plymouth Colony of Sandwich on Cape
Cod. George, who was a farmer by trade, was subsequently recommended for
"freeman" status in New Plymouth Colony on 5 March 1638/1639, and was later
admitted as such on 3 September 1639. George was later sworn in as the
Constable of Sandwich on 4 June 1639, and served as Surveyor of Highways in
1640. He also served as a Committeeman for the New Plymouth Court in 1640,
1641, 1642, and 1644.

George apparently died during the latter part of April 1648 at Sandwich in New
Plymouth Colony, as he was subsequently buried there on 2 May 1648. His will was
subsequently probated before the New Plymouth Court on 7 June 1648. One year
later, on 8 June 1649, his widow, Katherine, furnished an inventory of George's
estate to the New Plymouth Court. Sometime after George passed away, Katherine
married for a second time to a man named John Collins, who was a shoemaker in
Boston.
Although the identities of all of George's children have never been determined
beyond all doubt, the names of eight children have been verified through various
documents. In addition to these eight, it is highly probable that three other
individuals, namely John, Robert, and Francis Allen, are also sons of George. Aside
from those children that are known and very probable, some researchers also
believe that the Joan Allen who married Clement Briggs at Dorchester in 1630/1631,
and the Joshua Allen who married Mary Crowell at Yarmouth in 1671, are also
George's children. After spending considerable time researching these two
individuals, I am not convinced that they are George’s children, and have therefore
not included them in this genealogy.
It should also be mentioned that the "five least children" that George referred to in
his will have not been verified beyond all doubt either. However, these children, who
have been interpreted by most authorities to be the children George Allen had with
his second wife, Katherine, are strongly believed to be Matthew, William, Henry,
Samuel, and Gideon.1 George was born at Saltford, Somersetshire, England, circa 1582.2 He married (?) unknown at probably, Bridgewater, Somersetshire, England, circa 1610. Assuming he was born in 1578, then this date is consistent..2 He married Katherine unknown at England circa 1627.2,3 George Allen immigrated in 1635 to Weymouth, Norfolk, Massachusetts.4 He lived circa 1638 at Sandwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts.4 George died in April 1648.2 He was buried on 2 May 1648 at Sandwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts.2 His estate was probated on 7 June 1648 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.5
