Anyone recognise these ALLEN families in 1760s East Ilsley?
« on: Tuesday 02 May 17 12:21 BST (UK) »
One of my 5xG-grandmothers was Eliza (or Elizabeth) ALLEN.  She was married in East Ilsley in 1787.  I would like to establish which particular Eliza Allen "my" Eliza was.  Assuming she was born in EI, and making assumptions about her age at marriage, there's a choice of two:

The first one was bap 1761 to parents William & Jane nee BROWN.  She seems to have had siblings
Mary   1756
Ann   1759
Richard   1767
William   1770

The second one was bap 1766 to parents Thomas & Sarah nee BOLTON.  She seems to have had siblings
Mary   1764
Hannah   1768
Thomas   1769
William   1771
Sussana   1773
John   1775
Sarah   1776

I'm hoping that someone descended from one of Eliza's siblings (and hopefully not William as you'll presumably have the same conundrum as me!) might have done an autosomal DNA test.  Whilst it wouldn't be conclusive (these Vale of White Horse families seemed to intermarry an awful lot) it might throw up some new leads in terms of mutual matches.

Please do get in touch if you think you can shed any light on the situation.
