Hi i noted your message on the forum from a while ago, i too am trying to research the Allens from Birmingham who worked in the jewellwery trade so i was wondering how your search is progressing?. My Great Grandma is the the Daughter of Amy Ellen Allen B1874. Amys Dad was Henry B.1841 a Jeweller from Vyse Street in Birmingham. Amy had two Brothers Thomas B.1865 and Arthur B.1870. Thomas I believe married selina Underhill and Arthur I have been unable to trace from 21 years old onwards.
