He m. (2) Plymouth ca. 1626 Fear Brewster, b. Englkand; d. Plymouth bef. 12 Dec. 1634; dau. of William and Mary ------- Brewster of the "Mayflower."

He m. (3) prob. New Haven CT bef. 17 Feb. 1644/5 Joanna Swinnerton who was living New Haven CT 19 May 1684.

Isaac Allerton and his first wife came on the "mayflower." Bradford said: "Mr. Allerton his wife died with the first, and his servant John Hooke. His son Bartle is married in England but I know not how many children he hath. His daughter Remember is married at Salem and hath three or four children living. And his daughter Mary is married here and hath four children. Himself married again with the daughter of Mr. Brewster and hath one son living by her, but she is long since dead. And he is married again and hath left this place long ago."

In the 1623 division of land Isaac Allerton received 7 acres. In the 1627 division of cattle he is listed with wife Fear and Children Bartholomew, Remember, Mary and Sarah.

On 6 May 1635 it was recorded in the Mass. Bay Colony Records that Mr. "Ollerton" had given to Moses Maverick, his son in law, all his houses, buildings and stages at Marblehead.

On 26 Sept. 1639 Isaac Allerton deposed at Boston calling himself of New Plimmouth aged about 53 years.

Under date of 17 Feb 1644/5 Gov. Winthrop recorded "Mr. Allerton coming from New Haven in a ketch, with his wife and divers other persons, were taken in a great storm at northeast with much snow, and cast away at Scituate, but the persons all saved."

Isaac Allerton was called "of Newhaven Merchant" in a 13 Oct. 1646 letter of attorney.

The inventory of Isaac Allerton taken 12 Feb. 1658/9 was presented in the New Haven court 5 April 1659, his son Isaac being away at the time. Isaac produced his father's will on 5 July 1659 and was appointed to settle the estate, but he relinquished the trust. the will is little more than memoranda of debts due him and owed by him, but names his wife and son Isaac Allerton as trustees and they were to receive "what is overpluss." It mentions "brother Breuster."

On 27 Oct. 1646 Isacke Allerton of New Amsterdam in the province of New Netherlands, merchant, confirmed to son-in-law Thomas Cushman of New Plymouth a debt of one hundred pounds owed to Isaac by John Coombe.

On 4 Oct. 1660 Isaac Allerton (the son)granted to his mother-in-law Mrs. Johanna Allerton the house in New Haven where she now dwells during her life and then to his daughter Elizabeth Allerton and her heirs. The deed was not witnessed, so on 10 March 1682/3 Isaac Allerton confirmed the deed.

On 19 May 1684 Elizabeth Eyre formerly Allerton, now wife of Simon Eyre deeded to her husband, her reversion in a house and lot her grandmother Joanna Allerton "lives in."

Apparently had two more children, one child buried St. Peters, Leyden 5 Feb. 1620, and the other stillborn son b. Plymouth Harbour on the "Mayflower" 22 Dec. 1620.

Ref book: Plymouth Colony Its History & People 1620-1691, by Eugene Aubrey Stratton

Allerton, Isaac-Isaac Allerton was born ca. 1586, (he said he was about fifty-three years old in September 1639 (Small Descendants 2;756) gives a good account of his career and family). A Leiden Separatist and 1620 Mayflower passenger, Allerton was second in authority only to Bradford in the early years of the colony. However, Bradford felt that Allerton had abused the trust the colonists placed in him, and Allerton left the colony in the 1630s for other parts. A most enterprising man, he engaged in commercial pursuits at marblehead and in Maine and later resided at New Amsterdam. He cleared his debt to the Adventureers by a contract of 12 May 1646 in which he ratified what William Bradford, Edward Winslow, and Myles Standish, as agents for Shirley, Andrew, and Beauchamp, had done or would do about the sale of his lands, goods, and cattle "provided they do clearly acquit him from all debts and demands" . He died at New Haven in February 1658159, leaving little estate except debts he claimed were due him.

After the death of his first wife, Mary Norris, he married (2) Fear Brewster, and (3) widow Joanna Swinnerton. Walter S. Allerton, A History of the Allerton Family, 1585 to 1885, and a Genealogy of the Descendants of Isaac Allerton (revised, 1900) contains considerable errors, some of which are clarified by Newman A Hall in "The Unproven Allerton Family Linage, " MQ45:23 (See also Halls "Me Children of Isaac ABerton," MQ47:14 and his "Joanna Swinnerton: the Third Wife of Isaac Allerton, Sr., " NEHGR 124:133. Also see James R. Case, "Isaac Allerton, The First yankee Trader, " MQ48:170.) Allerton left a number of descendants in New England, and his son Isaac migrated to Virginia where the line was carried on under the Allerton, Lee, and Travers surnames.
