  • 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).
