Archibald Allen In Virginia

Name: Archibald ALLEN
Cemetery: Magnolia Cem
Location: Magnolia Twp, Putnam Co IL 81
Reference: Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol.1, p. Serial: ; Volume:

The first entry in St. Paul's Parish Register, St. George co., Va. on him is a dau Anne Allen, dau. of Archibald and Sarah, b. 17 Dec. 1717, and so on.
The Wives of Archibald ALLEN of King George

In his will of 31 Dec 1758, Archibald ALLEN of King George Seems to have
named his entire family. His wife was Elizabeth. His children were as

1. John ALLEN
2. Sarah DODD (believed to be the wife of Nathaniel DODD of Fauquier)
3. Jane STEWART (wife of James STEWART of Fauquier)
4. unnamed (deceased ?) daughter, wife of David JONES
5. Mary (STAMPS) ALLEN, widow of James ALLEN (d. 1758, Culpeper)
6. William ALLEN
7. Ann ALLEN
8. Martha MARDERS (probably wife of Samuel MARDERS, wit. to the will)
9. Elizabeth ALLEN

Archibald's will was probated 3 Jun 1762. Executors named were son William
and wife Elizabeth.

The St. Paul's Parish registry gives some interesting entries:

Anne ALLEN, dau of Archibald and Sarah, b. 17 Dec 1717.
Mary ALLEN, dau of Archibald and Sarah, b. 2 Oct 1721
Sarah ALLEN, d. 12 Nov 1721.
Archibald ALLEN m. Penelope SKINNER 26 Dec 1722. Penelope was the widow of
Peter SKINNER of Westmoreland.

Assuming this is the same Archibald (and there is little doubt to the
contrary), there were three wives: Sarah, Penelope, and Elizabeth.
Unfortunately, the birth order of the children is undetermined. Daughter
Mary was likely the spouse of David JONES.

There is yet another will of interest in King George. The 9 Dec 1750 will
of Sarah SETTLE was probated 2 Jan 1755. In this she names her son William
HUDSON, daughter Lucy HUDSON, and grandson William ALLEN. Lucy was to
receive rent from the plantation where Archibald ALLEN resides. Lucy HUDSON
and William ALLEN were the executors and a witness to the will was
Elizabeth ALLEN. William and Lucy appear to be siblings.

A possible deduction from this will is that one of Archibald's wives may
have been a HUDSON. Elizabeth, the third wife, was not named as a daughter
of Sarah HUDSON-SETTLE, so it appears Elizabeth wasn't a HUDSON. The first
wife, Sarah, would seem a strong possibility.

Some researchers seem to have concluded that the Archibald ALLEN who
married Abigail RHODES and resided in Prince William was the son
of Archibald ALLEN of King George. Though it would seem probable, I can
find nothing to support that conclusion. It seems possible this Archibald
could be a nephew to Archibald ALLEN of King George.

I would be very appreciative of any input or additions to this.
