The Allen Memorial: It is only recently that these matters have been sifted and set right First then the patient investigations of Mr Francis Olcott Allen of Philadelphia have conclusively shown that Samuel and Col Matthew Allyn were not brothers but that Col Matthew of Windsor Conn and Thomas Allyn of Barnstable Mass bore that relationship and were the sons of Richard and Margaret Allen of Braunton Co Devon England no Samuel Allen being found on the registers there t The foregoing relationship of Thomas and Matthew has been further identified by the will of Richard Allen of Braunton proved May 1652 which fully establishes the fact beyond controversy.

The Connecticut magazine: an illustrated monthly, Volume 8:  While most of the English wills were proved and recorded in the counties where the testators lived many wills of the better class of people were proved in London and recorded at Somerset House. There Mr Waters found the wills of Richard Allen proved 1652 and of his son Richard Allyn proved 1662. Richard Allen also Allin and Allyn the elder was married first at Braunton County Devon in 1583, and I have searched seven parish registers in that vicinity and found hundreds of official records of Aliens, Allins, Allyns, Wyatts, Rices and Tomlins.
