    John Allen lived in Newbury, Mass until 1662 when he moved to Sudbury, where he died December 1, 1711. He was a tailor, perhaps THE tailor of the town, though for a few years in the latter part of his life he had a competitor in Enoch Cleveland, the youngest son of Moses Cleveland of Woburn, the first American ancestor of President Cleveland. John Allen also had a farm where he lived, in the part of Sudbury that is now Wayland. Sudbury was attacked by the Indians during King's Philip's War in 1676, and John Allen was one of the sufferers, his petition to the General Court being estimated at 60 pounds. In 1688 he was one of those who took the public store of ammunition into their own hands. It is probable that his son, Thomas, was killed during the first French and Indian War (King William's War) of 1689, as John Allen's name appears on the petition of those 'some of us for ourselves, others for our children and servants who were last winter impressed into dreadful service where by reason of cold and hunger and tedious marches many score of miles in snow and water, and laying on the snow at night, having no provisions but what they could carry on their backs, beside hard arms and ammunition, it cost many of them their lives". John left a will, dated August 9, 1708, three years before his death, his son Benjamin, being made executor. His second wife, Mary, is probably the Mary Allen who died in Sudbury, August 20, 1727.
