- William Allen (ca. 16101686) m. (1) ca. 1639 Ann Goodale (ca. 16181678); Salisbury, Mass.
- Capt. Joseph Allen (16531724) m. (1) 1680 Rachel Griggs (16441684); Salisbury, Gloucester, Mass.
- Capt. Joseph Allen (16811750) m. (1) 1707 Mary Coit (b. 1688); Gloucester, Mass.

Walter Goodwin Davis partly followed this line, in Massachusetts and Maine Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis (18851966): A Reprinting, in Alphabetical Order by Surname, of the Sixteen Multi-Ancestor Compendia, 3 vols. (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1996), 1:6-10. The early American generations also appear in David W. Hoyt, The Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, Massachusetts (Providence, R. I.: Snow & Farnham, Printers, 1897), 31-3. Neither gives a detailed treatment of the children of Capt. Joseph Allen; for this, Vital Records of Gloucester, Massachusetts, to the End of the Year 1849, 3 vols. (Topsfield, Mass.: Topsfield Historical Society, 191724), is still essential.
