About The Allen and Related Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.
This web site is dedicated to sharing the ongoing research on our Allen 
(password),Boyns, Davies and Hamblet(t) lines, with a few others thrown in. When 
I began my internet research back in 1999 (I had been doing research the old 
fashoned way since I was about 12), I was driven by the desire to find my 
great grandmother, Caroline Hannah Hamblet Boyns Allen Hodge. No one knew much about 
her because she had left England and her family in about 1908. Well, I found her 
and even have pictures!

During my search, I have been very fortunate to come in contact with several 
English cousins and they have helped immensley with providing information that 
eventualy lead me to Caroline Hannah Hamblet Boyns (my ggrandmother), Or Kitty as she 
was known by her family.  In addition to finding Kitty I have also been fortunate 
enough to have contact with descendants of each of Hannah Hamblet and George Davies 3 
children, Joseph Hamblet Jr., Sarah Maria Hamblet Davies and Thomas Hamblet David 
Davies. Hannah was the oldest daughter of Joseph Hamblet Sr. brick maker 
extaordinair! I have also had contact from cousins descended from the children of 
Philip Hamblet and is wife Sarah (parents of Joseph) as well as other lines that we 
have not yet been able to difinativly nail down a connection to, but know it is 
there. There is now a HAMBLET(T) surname mailing list on the Rootsweb site that I 
recommend strongly. It is for all those researching this name and it's varients in 

I have also been able to trace the Allen line back one more 
generation, to James Allen, Gardner b. 1774, Lichfield, Staffordshire, 
England. Along with his wife Sarah and at least 3 children, there may be more 
waiting to be found. It is said that the Allen's came from Scotland and that 
they may have been part of the Clan McDonald. Research is yet to prove this 
out, but hopefully it will be in the next few years. I have also recently come 
in contact with a gentalman who is researching the Grigg surname and may have 
found a family for Elizabeth Grigg who married James Allen, 4 Sep 1843. Elizabeth had 
previously been married to John Millichip and they had two children before his death. 
They were married in 1833 at St. Peter's, Aston Juxta, Brimingham. I have gotten a 
copy of the marriage certificate for James Allen and Elizabeth Millichip and it  
shows her as nee' Grigg! The Millichips became respected Solisitors (Lawyers 
to us americans)in West Bromwich and are still there today I believe. I have also 
been able to find Elizabeth's parents and siblings!

So as you can see the research into our roots is far from over. And what good 
is research if it is not shared with others? After considering several ways of 
sharing this information it became clear that the most efficent way was to 
create a web site and continually up date it with new information as it is 
found. Then each family member or interested party can access it at their 
convieniance. When you do, please sign my Register Book. Comments are not 
necessary (although they would help me improve the site), but your name and 
address - IE: J. Smith, Deerborn, MI, USA would be hepful. That way I can have 
some reference if I am contacted off line, which I welcome. Contributions are 
always welcome as well!!!! So if you see something 
here that is incorrect or that you have additional information on, PLEASE 
contact me and I'll gladly add your info to what is already here! 
So thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy your walk through our past!
