Hi MCWelsh79!

Hello from David "Tex" Allen of Columbia PA USA, great grandson of Henry Clay Allen (1857 - 1946) of Spur, Texas, and many other Allens and Alleynes of fame.

Thank you for your kind post regarding our mutual Alleyne/ Allen relatives, including common ancestors such as George Alleyn (1460 - 1540) of Chartley Manor, Staffordshire, England and his descendants who came to America starting in 1645.

One of collateral relatives now living in North Carolina named James Robert Allen did extensive research work using Ancestry.Com and identified a large list of famous collateral relatives which include royaltly from Europe, movie stars of fame, US Presidents and their wives, and Geoffrey Chaucer of England who wrote THE CANTERBURY TALES in the 14th century.

Here is the list of collteral relatives identified on the list Ancestry.Com supplied for him. Likely many, maybe all, of the names identified are also YOUR collateral relatives.

Good luck getting details about all this. I've never used Ancestry.Com and never used a paid geneology service.

Contact me at: DavidAllenUSA@Yahoo.Com.

Write me at: 107 S. 2nd St., Apt. 1, Columbia PA USA 17512.

Thanks for your interesting email message. Sorry to hear poor Mary, Queen of Scots did time at Chartley Manor Castle before she was murdered. Quite a black mark in English history, I think. Her son became King James I of England, but that didn't help his mother, much, eh?

I have quite a bit more about our overall family history if your are interested.

Contact me directly if you desire via email at DavidAllenUSA@Yahoo.Com

Below is the list provided by Ancestry.Com to our relative in North Carolina, James Robert Allen (I assume we're all relatives of some sort, no matter how distant!):
