Hunter, on FMG (p494), reports that "This is the copy of a pedigree compiled in 1632 for Dr. Robert Allott of Cambridge. But the earlier descents appear to be entirely fictitious, and cannot be taken as authority for anything above the Doctor's grandfather" (a son of John Allott of Criggleston, below). He then shows what we report in the upper section below and much of what is in the lower section. On p498 he shows "A true Pedigree of the Family of Allott. So entitled by the person by whom it was compiled, about the year 1660" which is supported by p499 on which he shows a separate pedigree headed 'Allott", both of which contradict the ancestry of the John who is shown at the continuation below. Consequenty, the following upper section should be viewed as highly unreliable which is why we show almost all of it in italics.
