    The ancestry for him given in Newberry Genealogy: The Ancestors and Descendants of Thomas Newberry of Dorchester, Mass. (J. Gardner Bartlett, Boston: 1914), and reproduced in the eighth edition of Ancestral Roots (line 253), has been substantially discredited; see various posts to SGM in October and November of 2011 for a discussion of this. (Briefly, his parents are who Bartlett said they were, but Bartlett is mistaken beyond that.) Newberry Genealogy continues to be a reliable guide to Newberry's descendants.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 17 Apr 1605, Braunton, Devon, England

    Notes:

    Emigrated 1633. First at Cambridge, then Hartford 1636, Windsor by 1648. Back in England mid-1640; may have made other return trips.

    Clearly a man of some education, he held many important offices. According to Stiles he was rep. to Massachusetts general court, March 1636; rep. to Connecticut general court every year (save 1653) from 1648 to 1658; magistrate of the colony 1657-67; commissioner for the United Colonies of New England 1660-64. Anderson also notes him as assistant of Connecticut general court, 1658-66. He is mentioned in Charles II's Royal Charter for Connecticut, 1662.

    He was the brother of Thomas Allyn of Barnstable. Not related to Thomas Allen of Wethersfield or Samuel Allen of Windsor.

    From The Great Migration Begins:

    Matthew Allyn was in some way related to WILLIAM SPENCER of Cambridge and Hartford, or, more probably, to his wife, Agnes Harris. [...]

    Matthew Allyn's first appearance in New England was in the grant of land in Cambridge on 4 November 1633 to seven men, of whom three others (JOHN HAYNES, THOMAS HOOKER and SAMUEL STONE) are known to have arrived 4 September 1633 on the Griffin.

    Matthew Allyn seems out of place in Cambridge, as all others who arrived at about this time were from East Anglia; based on his English origin, one would expect Allyn to have resided first in Dorchester. This unusual residence for Allyn is probably tied up in some way with his relationship with WILLIAM SPENCER.

    Besides being a man who was highly respected and who served society well, Matthew Allyn was a highly contentious man. He had lengthy legal disputes with his brother, and not long after he left Massachusetts he was wanted for "debt and damage" he had left behind [7 October 1641: "It is ordered, that a letter shal be sent to Mr. Haynes & the rest of the magistrates at Connectecot, to send back the prisoner Mathewe Alleyn, or satisfy the debt & damage"]. Further evidence of his litigiousness may be found throughout the Connecticut court records.

    Matthew married Margaret Wyatt 2 Feb 1627, Braunton, Devon, England. Margaret (daughter of John Wyatt and Frances Chichester) was born Bef 8 Mar 1595, Braunton, Devon, England; died 12 Sep 1675, Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut. [Group Sheet]


  4. 7.  Margaret Wyatt was born Bef 8 Mar 1595, Braunton, Devon, England (daughter of John Wyatt and Frances Chichester); died 12 Sep 1675, Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 8 Mar 1595, Braunton, Devon, England

    Notes:

    On the occasion of her marriage to Matthew Allyn, she was recorded in the Braunton parish register as "Mris" Margrett Wyot, the salutation being a mark of her gentry status.

    One of Teresa's four proven "gateway ancestors"; also one of DDB's four.

    Children:
    1. 3. Mary Allyn was born Bef 20 Jan 1628, Braunton, Devon, England; died 14 Dec 1703.

  4. 12.  Richard Allyn died Bef 5 Aug 1651; was buried 5 Aug 1561, Braunton, Devon, England.

    Notes:

    He is possibly the Richard Allyn baptized in Braunton on 15 Mar 1564, who may have been the son of Matthew Allyn who was buried in Braunton 7 Feb 1565. Many online sites show this Richard's father as this Matthew, and assign a "Katherine" as the wife of Matthew and the mother of Richard. Douglas Richardson's 1981 article "Allyn and Wyatt Families of Braunton, Devon" (citation details below) is often cited as a source for these assertions. But nothing in that article actually asserts any of those relationships. Richardson's article simply presents some Braunton parish records of people named Allyn and Wyatt. It doesn't make any argument as to the specific parentage of Richard Allyn, father-in-law of gateway ancestor Margaret Wyatt (1595-1675).

    Richard married Margaret Wyatt 24 Sep 1583, Braunton, Devon, England. Margaret died Bef 10 May 1642, Braunton, Devon, England; was buried 10 May 1642, Braunton, Devon, England. [Group Sheet]
