Birth: unknown
County Sligo, Ireland
Death: 1859
County Sligo, Ireland

Exact Date of birth unknown, born in Ireland, believed in County Sligo, supposedly married three times. First wife was Anne Cartwright; second wife, Catherine Burke, third wife, name unknown. I had alwyas been told that George William Allen was Chief Recorder, County Sligo, and Librarian, Trinity College, Dublin. Children of George William Allen and Anne Cartwright were: Thomas William, George and Sarah Anne- and perhaps others. Order of birth unknown, but Thomas William died (in Millbrook) Nov 11, 1905, aged 83 years so it can be assumed that he was born in 1822.

Wood-Martin (vol. 3) mentions a "recorder of Sligo" in "1834, William
Allen (in 1849 he resigned, received a retiring pension, and was
succeeded by Edmund Rochfort)

Received this following information from another contributor.

I just came across a mention of another child of William Allen.

"At Callen, Co Kilkenny, John Alexander, aged 29 Years youngest son of the late William Allen Esq, ex-recorder of Sligo" from Waterford news 5 Dec 1862


"Mrs Allen, Wife of William Allen, Recorder of Sligo" from Clare Journal and Ennis Advertiser 8 Nov 1838 (presumably the mother of John Alexander Allen and thus the third unknown wife)
