Notes
Death Notes:
Allyn's Point was so named because Robert Allyn was the original settler on the land in 1656. The Allyn's established a trading post on the site in 1675. It is located halfway between New York City and Boston Massachusetts on the Thames River. The land is now occupied by a Dow Chemical plant.
General:
New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Volume IV Pg 1905-6 : Robert Allyn, the first of that name in this country, was probably born in England about 1608. He is known to have lived in Salem. Massachusetts, in 1636, and was admitted to the church there in 1642. He was a proprietor at Jeffery's Creek in 1638 and a constable there in 1648. In March, 1651, he emigrated with the Glouster Company to New London, Connecticut, and was allotted land on Cape Ann Lane. He later, in 1656, obtained a large tract of land on the east bank of the Thames, then called the Pequod river, at a place still called Allyn's Point. This was then in the town of New London but by changes in boundaries it soon became the town of Ledyard. He was one of a company which purchased land in Norwich or "New Norridge" where he was a constable in 1669. He died in 1683 in Ledyard leaving five children by his wife Sarah--a son John, and four daughters--Sarah, wife of George Geer; Mary, wife of Thomas Park; Hannah, wife of Thomas Rose; Deborah, who afterwards married John Gager Jr.

Savage, New England Dictionary of First Settlers: "Allyn, Robert, Salem, 1637, adm. of the ch. 15 May 1642, had John, and Sarah there bapt. Sunday foll. and Mary, 19 Nov. 1648; in 1658 rem. to New London, and to the then adjoin. town of Norwich at its first set-tlem. 1659; but, high as is her authority on such a point, I hesitate to adopt Miss Caulkins's opin. that, intermed. betw. Salem and New London, he was of Saybrook. Tho. honor. with the office of constable at Norwich 1669, he went back to N. L. and there d. 1683, were part of his farm preserves in the harbor the name of Allyn's point. Other ch. beside those at Salem he had, as Hannah and Deborah, both prob. at N. L. Sarah m. 17 Feb. 1659, George Geer; Hannah m. Thomas Rose; and Deborah was unm. at d. of f."
