CHAPTER 12

GEORGE ALLEN OF IREDELL COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA

In September of 1832, George Allen, a resident of Iredell County, North Carolina, filed an application for a military pension for his services during the Revolutionary War. Mr. Allen stated that he was born about the year of 1744 in Hanover County, Virginia. He was first drafted to serve in Captain Bryant's Company under the command of General Buttrem and was discharged at Salisbury after three months of service. He was again drafted in 1782 to serve in the company of Captain Jones at the Battle of Eutaw Springs in North Carolina and was discharged by General Greene at Salisbury. Mr. Allen further stated that he was living in Wake County at the time he was first drafted and he remained there until 1800 when he removed to Iredell County where he had lived ever since. (National Archives, Revolutionary Claims file no. S2345 Vol. A, p. 5).

George Allen of Iredell County was the son of George Allen (Senior). Both men are listed in the DAR Patriots Index, George Allen, Sr. provided public service in North Carolina during the war.

The will of George Allen, Sr. was dated January 30, 1805 and proved in Warren County Court February Term, 1805. In his will Mr. Allen named his wife, Dianna as executrix. Dianna was to have the use of the 200 acre "home place" adjoining Davis and James Powell, for her lifetime. After her death, the property would go their son Thomas Allen. Another son, George Allen, was to have 100 acres adjoining Major Taylor, the heirs of William Christmas and William Ellis. A son, William, was to receive one silver dollar. Granddaughters Nancy Fain and Cathy Baxter were to divide the land where Sylvester Knukals (Nichols) lived, giving 47 1/2 acres to each. The children of a daughter, Dorcas Ray, and her husband, James Ray were given legacies. A grandson, Joel Allen, was to have 100 acres beginning at the line of James Powell, up Saul's Creek, including the plantation on which Thaddeus Murrah formerly lived. Five married daughters also received land: Mary Smith, Elizabeth Patrick, Sally Bennett, Jean (Jane) Stephenson and Cathy Murrah. (Book 13, page 10 (A), Warren County, North Carolina).

The earliest record found for George Allen (Senior) in North Carolina was a grantee deed from Joseph Hackney and his wife Sarah Hackney to George Allen of Fauquier County, Virginia" for 300 acres of land in Bute County which later became Warren County. At George's death, 1141 acres of land were divided among the heirs of George Allen. The following records were abstracted by Mrs. Sara C. Allen of Hiddenite, North Carolina.

4 April 1768. Joseph and Sarah Hackney both of Bute County, North Carolina, deed to George Allen of Fauquier County, Virginia for 60 pounds money 300 acres in Bute County on E. S. Robertson's Mill Branch. Witnesses William Moore, John Hackney and Susanna Moore. Ack. by Joseph Hackney in August Court 1768. (Recorded 14 November 1768, Bute County Deed Book 2, p. 116).

1771 Bute County tax list: George Allen, in John Hawkins District, had 1 white poll and 2 slaves.

16 March 1778, Bute County Land entry no. 59. George

GEORGE ALLEN OF IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. 335

Allen enters by virtue of improvements, 640 acres on Saul's Creek, adj. his own line, and the lines of Mrs. Johnston, Mr. Barham, Robert Caller's and John Dulies. (A warrant for survey issued 17 June 1778. This North Carolina Land Grant No. 59 was finalized 20 Sept. 1779, Warren County Deed Book 7, p. 318). (Note: Bute County was abolished in 1779, and the two counties of Wake and Warren were formed from that area).

14 November 1780. George Allen deed to Richard Riggan, both of Warren County, North Carolina, agreeable to arbitration between George Allen and John Hawkins adm. of the estate of William Powell, 100 acres on Saul's Creek adj. Johnson. Witnesses James Paine and John Todd. Ack. by Geo. Allen in November Court 1780. (Warren County Deed Book 7, p. 403).

The deed of 1768 stated that George Allen was "of Fauquier County Virginia." The pension application of his son, George Allen Jr. stated that he was born in "Hanover County, Virginia about 1744." There were no land records for a George Allen in Hanover County Virginia prior to 1744. A search of the Virginia records reveals there was a Hanover Perish in early King George County, both formed about 1720. Later, Prince William and Stafford Counties were formed from a part of King George. In 1758 Fauquier County was formed from parts of Prince William and Stafford Counties.

William Allen appears to have been the earliest Allen in Stafford County, Virginia. He had land grants there as early as 1722. Prince William County was formed from a part of Stafford in 1731 and much of William Allen's land fell in the newly formed county of Prince William. That land was later owned by his heirs. The children of William Allen can not all be identified with the available records.

In 1731, William Hackney of Hanover Parish Prince William County sold land which had been part of a land grant to William Allen. Later that same year, George Allen sold land in Prince William County which had originally been granted to William Hackney. Five years later, in 1736 William Hackney was the co-administrator of the estate of George Allen of Prince William County.

In 1768, a Joseph Hackney sold land in Bute County, North Carolina to George Allen of Fauquier County, Virginia. The surnames Hackney, Wallis, Christmas and Taylor are associated with the George Allens of North Carolina and the Allen families of Prince William and Fauquier Counties in Virginia. Although there is no proof that George Allen, Sr. of Warren County, North Carolina was the son of the George Allen of Prince William County Virginia, there is some circumstantial evidence which should be investigated in depth by descendants of the George Allen of Warren and Iredell Counties of North Carolina.

The records of Prince William County, Virginia have been abstracted by June Whitehurst Johnston in the book Prince William County, Virginia, published in 1982. The following Allen records were found there.

William Allen of Stafford County, Virginia Parish of Overwharton, for natural love I have for my four daughters, Sarah, Elizabeth, Margaret and Dinah, ... give all my rights in containing that land patented by me dated March 14, 1722/23 containing 313 acres, also my land leased to Henry Hackney and John Shewmore containing 303 acres.

15 February 1731. William Hackney of the Parish of Hanover, County of Prince William, deed to Sam Skinker of same, ... 150 acres which was part of a tract granted to William Allyn.


336 GEORGE ALLEN OF IREDELL COUNTY, N.C.

8 October 1731. George Allen of Hamilton Parish in County of Prince William to Charles McClelland of Overwharton Perish in the County of Stafford, William Hackney's grant out of the office of the Proprietors of the Northern Neck of Virginia... dated March 11 1722, for 247 acres on Brent Town Run, adj. Hackney and John Allen, part of said 247 acres which lies on north side of Brent Town Run has since come to George Allen. Deed of lease and release. Signed by George (his mark) Allen.

9 October 1731. Jane Allen, wife of George Allen, for consideration of moving appointed Catesby Cocke of Prince William County to be her true and lawful attorney to acknowledge all her right and title of Dower and thirds in tract on north side of Brent Town Run. Signed Jane (her mark) Allen.

15 November 1731 Joseph Allen of Prince William, Planter, to Charles McClelland of Stafford a tract on south side of Brent Town Run....whereon said Joseph Allen lately dwelt... which includes 247 acres granted by deed from Proprietors office dated March 11, 1722/3 to William Hackney; and by Hackney conveyed to Joseph Allen and his brother, George Allen who divided the same George Allen taking on north side of run Deed of lease and release. Signed by Joseph (his mark) Allen. Mary Allen wife of Joseph Allen relinquished her rights and title of Dower and thirds in the tract, through her attorney, Catesby Cocke.

15 November, 1731. James Mean of Prince William, planter, to Charles McClelland of Stafford, planter, tract on north side of Brent Town Run.... 60 acres of land bought by Charles McClelland of George Allen, being a part of a tract of 247 acres granted to William Hackney from Proprietor Office dated March 11, 1722 conveyed by him to George Allen and Joseph Allen, which George Allen conveyed this part to James Means. Signed by James (his mark) Means.


From the above records, we learn that George Allen of Prince William County had a brother named Joseph Allen. The two brothers owned a tract of land which had originally been a grant to William Hackney. George's part of the tract adjoined the land of John Allen. In 1731, Jane Allen, the wife of George, and Mary Allen the wife of Joseph, both relinquished their dower rights in the property of their husband "in consideration of moving."

George Allen apparently did not move far away as he died in Prince William County Virginia in 1736. Jane Allen was the administratrix of the estate of George Allen, her deceased husband, with William Hackney her security. The children of George and Jane Allen are not known. More research needs to be done in Prince William County to determine if George Allen of North Carolina was related to this George Allen of Virginia.

Little is known about the personal life of George Allen, Sr. of Warren County North Carolina. His surviving widow was named Dianna but the date of their marriage and her maiden name are not known. The grantor deed of 1780 to Richard Riggan recorded in Warren County, North Carolina (see abstract above) indicates that George Allen, Sr. inherited land from the estate of William Powell. Many descendants believe that Dianna Allen was an heir of Mr. Powell, probably his daughter.


GEORGE ALLEN OF IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. 337

In the census records of North Carolina, George Allen (Junior) the son of George Allen of Warren County, was head of household in Wake County in 1790 and was listed in Iredell County in 1800. The Grantee Deed Index for Iredell County has three grantee deeds listed for George Allen the earliest one from William Potts in 1801, two others from Mathew Wallis in 1802 and 1805.

The wife of George Allen, Jr. was Lucretia Reaves the sister of Samuel Reaves. No marriage bond has been found in Wake County, but the marriage was recorded in a family Bible, Their children were all born in Wake County North Carolina and their births were recorded in the family Bible which is now in the possession of James Boyce Allen (267131) and his wife nee Sara Carpenter of Hiddenite, North Carolina. Mrs. Allen has compiled and contributed her personal genealogical research for the two chapters in this book dealing with the George Allen and Reynold Allen families. Mr, and Mrs. Allen own the Bibles and other family papers of the George Allen family for several generations. Mrs. Allen has also abstracted many Allen records in North Carolina and other states.
