Judith Sayers 14th August 2012:

Dear Richard, I have the following from the gravestones at Hill. Thomas Allen aged 72 years, died 16.6.1823, (Sarahs name and details not decipherable, at the bottom), Joanna Woodward wife of Henry aged 42, died 24.9.1833, Can’t find the details for Thomas the mariner, in the grave next to him, (brother of Daniel).

I have some photos somewhere, but can’t put my hands on them at the moment, no doubt they will appear, when I least expect them.

My thoughts re Henry Woodward becoming tenant on the farm is because he is described as a labourer at baptisms of his and Joannas children, when Thomas and Sarah are alive, and then later he is a yeoman.

I think Sarah must have gone to live with her son John, he lived at one time at Hill Pill. (Hill Pile on her death cert I think). We went down there once and found the remains of the cottage, there were even remnants of a garden, with a rose which was still growing there.

When I find the photos will send you copies. all for now, best wishes in your new parish, from Judith

 

Their children were Great IV Aunts and Uncles:

 

1.THOMAS ALLEN, Great IV Uncle of Richard John Barton

 

Thomas Allen was baptised on 8th November 1778 at Stone. He was a Mariner of Oldbury-on-Severn and produced a will on 18th March 1839.

In 1841 Thomas Allen was a beer house keeper of Oldbury-on-Severn. He was described as sixty-two-years-old and born in the county. With him was Mary Sharp, aged thirty-five, his housekeeper and eight others. These included James Allen, a mariner aged twenty-one-years.

He died on 11th June 1846 aged 68 years at Hill and a monument was erected. The will was proved on 26th October 1846 and the property was valued at less than £300. He made bequests to James Allen, his nephew; John, Joseph and Robert, his brothers; Hester his sister; Harriet Allen, his niece, Hannah his niece; the children of Joanna Woodward his sister; and Daniel Allen his nephew. His property included he share and interest of and in the Sloop “Mary” of the Port of Gloucester, his property at Oldbury, his clock and other monies. Mary Sharp, single woman, who resided with him, had use of the property at Oldbury during her lifetime.

Letter from Judith and Andrew Sayers 22nd July 2004:

 

‘We have studied the tithe map and found the properties owned by Thomas Allen, the mariner, and they are still there, one we believe was a cider house, picture enclosed. Which is next to the Memorial hall, near the Ship Inn. The other is a cottage set a little way back, behind that, and with land adjoining, which would probably have been a cider apple orchard.’

Re plan of Hill churchyard at GRO: ‘A grave between Thomas Allen the Mariner and his parents is marked S. Woodward, and is smaller, so could be a child, (Samuel?), and another next to it is V. Allen, possibly Virtue, wife of Joseph, son of Thomas and Sarah. H. Woodward is a little way along from Joanna. The plan was made in the early 1900s we think, and is in a book giving a little history of the church, written by the vicar at the time. No dates re the names.’

Email from Judith Sayers 7th August 2012:

One theory is that Thomas and Sarah were farming the farm opposite the church at Hill, and when daughter Joanna married Henry Woodward he took over the running of the farm and the tenancy when they died. On the tithe map Henry is farming a lot of land in that area. But it does  not explain the links to Oldbury, where the son Thomas was a mariner, and owned property there.

Daniel Allen was baptised on 11th January 1780 at Rockhampton and he later became a gardener there. He married Anne (Nancy) Nash on 28th October 1805 at Berkeley. Both signed with marks and the witnesses were Hesther Allen (sister), William Brown and Henry Clark.

Email from Judith Sayers 7th August 2012:

We have been dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s with some of the others. In particular Andrews grandfather William Allen, found the census for 1891 that shows the enumerator doing 2 entries, or there were 2 enumerators, one entry shows, the family at home, which is what we had originally, and recently found another entry showing William with his father and brother on a ship named the Thames, in the dock at Sharpness, which we know from his crew agreement on the next ship, was a tug. So we can now know that he started his maritime career on the tug with his father who was the captain, and then went on to another ship, from there we have his maritime history until his death at sea in 1919.We only found this out a few weeks ago!
