  • Notes 
    • In Sandwich, 1648; Dartmouth, 1675. A mason, he is usually referred to as "Ralph Allen the mason" in the ongoing project of sorting out the similarly-named early Allens. Possibly a son of George Allen who died at Sandwich in 1648, but more likely, George's son was the other, older Ralph Allen who lived at Sandwich during much the same time as this Ralph. This Ralph is frequently called "Jr." in Sandwich records in order to distinguish him from the older one.

      David Wilcox (1763-1828) = Anna Baker (1761-1813)
      Clarissa Wilcox (1796-1827) = Rep. Ambrose Hall (1724-1827)
      Clarissa Hall (1825-1895)* = Leonard Walker Jerome (1817-1891)
