I have just come across your ancient post in a google search! Is it possible we are interested in the same Allensons? I am descended from a Thomas Allenson who was schoolmaster (from 1764) and later also a parish clerk (from 1796) in East Kirkby, Lincolnshire. He died in 1823. He was married to Naomi Golling and I have a note somewhere to the effect that he was born in Skipton, Yorkshire.
It would be good to make some connection with you and compare notes, maybe?
Best wishes for 2013!
