George Allen or Alleyne of Chartley, Suffolk, and Grantham, Lincolnshire
1. Richard Allen or Alleyne of Grantham (d 06.09.1559)
  Maddison shows Richard as having married twice, a daughter of John Sheldon of Bewley (mother of all of his children) then an Isabella. BP1934 shows him as having married twice, an unnamed first wife "had issue an only son") then Isabella Sheldon ("and by her had issue"). We follow BP1934 and presume that all of Richard's children were by Isabella Sheldon apart from his eldest son.
