The Mysterious (Sir) Hugh Allens, Alens Allen etc etc etc
« on: Saturday 11 January 14 08:28 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I've come to a complete stop on the family history trail at on Hugh Alens (just one of any variant spellings i've come across), born Bury in 1535 and buried in Radclifee in 1611.

If anyone knows or has any info on the mysterious (sir) Hugh Allens, thank you.

Hugh had a daughter Anna
baptised at the above church
24th August 1576, and plenty of other children, I do not see him called Syr Hughe Alens until January 1601, when he buries his daughters, and he dies after them, December

The name seems popular in the area , as there are church records for Alys Allence daughter of James in 1564 so possibly a brother to Hugh

No Lancashire opc site its free and has much more detail than pay to view site, but of course it is transcribed by  fantastic volunteers ;D, so you don't get the original without going to the archives,
