Reynold Allen had land and deeds recorded in Granville. North Carolina in 1752 and in Johnston County from 1753 until 1770, when his land fell in the newly formed Wake County. His name was generally spelled Renals, Runnels or Runnells in the earlier records but later the spelling Reynold or Reynolds became more common.

No records can be found for Reynold Allen prior to the land grant of 1752. It is not known where he was born or who his parents were. His wife's name was given as "Mary Allen" in a deed to Robert Abernathy in 1752. One of their sons was named Young Allen, and he was born before 1755, according to the census records of 1800. Judging from the date of Reynold's first land grant and the age of his son, Reynold Allen was born by or before 1730.

A land grant was recorded for Arendell Allen in 1752, and that tract of land, situated on Mill Creek in Granville County, was sold by Reynold Allen the same year. It is not possible to determine from the available records if Arendell Allen and Reynold Allen were the same man and an error was or if there made in transcribing the old land was another reason for the different names on the two instruments.

A recording error did occur in the deed transfer record of the Mill Creek property. In that instrument, Reynold Allen was said to be "of Granville County, Province of South Carolina." Following that, the deed said that "Robert Abernathy was of Prince George County of the aforesaid Province." Although there was a county called Granville in South Carolina for a short period of time, there was no Prince George County there.

In 1760 Reynold Allen sold land to Francis Wray, late of Lunenburg County. Later, Francis Wary sold that land to David Allen. A year later, in 1761 Reynold Allen sold land to Young Allen, the son of Robert Allen, both of Lunenburg County, Virginia.

Robert Abernathy, Francis Wray, Young Allen and David Allen, all mentioned above, were from the same vicinity in Virginia. The names Robert Abernathy and Francis Wray appeared on the 1704 Quit Rent Roll of Prince George County, Virginia. Robert Abernathy had two other grants in Prince George County, one in 1717 for 100 acres and another in 1727 for 80 acres. Robert Abernathy, Jr. of Prince George County had two grants in 1727, one for 80 acres in Prince George County, another one for 197 acres in Brunswick County. (Nugent). In 1728, Francis Wray had a land grant in Brunswick County, Virginia. David Allen purchased land in Brunswick County in 1732 and Drury Allen of Hanover County, Virginia had a grant in Brunswick (later Lunenburg) County about 1745. There were several Allen and Wray family intermarriages in both Virginia and in North Carolina. See chapter 10 for more about Francis Wray

From the deed statement that Robert Abernathy was from the same province as Reynold Allen, it has been concluded that Reynold was probably from Virginia. In addition, his association with Francis Wray, David Allen and Young Allen have led to the conclusion by many descendants that Reynold was related to the Lunenburg County Allen family. Although there is a preponderance of evidence that Reynold Allen was related to the Robert Allen family, it is circumstantial evidence. The families of Reynold, David and Young Allen


lived on adjoining farms for several years until David moved to South Carolina in 1788. Reynold's oldest son, born before 1755, was named Young Allen. Later, the daughter of Young Allen, the son of Robert Allen, Jr. married Arnold Bruce and the daughter of Reynold Allen married Arnold's brother, Peter Eli Bruce.

Some of the records found for Reynold Allen in Granville and Johnston Counties, North Carolina are abstracted below.

1752 Reynold Allen, land grant of 400 acres on Mill Creek, in Granville County, North Carolina.

1 September 1752. Reynold Allen of Granville County, South Carolina to Robert Abernathy of Prince George County, Province aforesaid, for 40 pounds, 400 acres joining John Robison's line, Robert Culler's line on Mill Creek (Granville County Deed Book B, pp 109-110; abstracted by the authors from a copy of record photocopied by the N.C. Archives). See above text for a discussion of what appears to be errors in this recording.

5 December 1752, Reynold Allen deed to Robert Abernathy for 20 pounds paid, 444 acres on Cabin Branch, witnessed by Danie1 Weldon. Mary Allen, the wife of Runnal Allen was examined and she freely and voluntarily relinquished her right of dower. (Granville Co. Deed Book B, pp. 123-24.)

1 January 1763, Land grant to Reynold Allen, 625 acres on Cedar Creek, Johnston County.

The Court Minutes Book has evidence of other activities


of "Renel" Allen. In 1759, Renel Allen recorded his mark there as follows: "A crop on ya left ear and a nick under and over in ye right ear." In 1760, Mr. Allen was listed as one of the Grand Jurors, and he acted as the overseer for roads in his district for several terms.
Tabitha Keeton, a widow, who sold land to Reynold Allen in 1759, may have been his daughter. Records of Wake and Iredell Counties show that John, Peter and William Keaton were entitled to an interest in the estate of Reynold Allen, Sr. Mr. Robert Daniels an Allen family researcher, states that John, Peter and William were sons of Yerby Keeton.
Beginning in 1780, there are man Wake County records which Include the names of Reynold Allen and his two sons. Young Allen and Reynold Allen, Jr. The use of the terms "Junior and "Senior" are used only when both names appear in the same document, so it is not always possible to separate the records of the father and son of the same name. However, the records for Young Allen, after 1780, were for the son of Reynold Allen, Sr., except the estate records for Young Allen who died in 1774. The deed abstracts for Wake County are available to readers in other publications so only one of them will be discussed here.

10 October 1780. Reynold Allen of Wake County planter, deed to his sons Young and Reynold Allen, for love and good will..., all my land, dwelling houses, goods and chattels, live stock and 2 negroes, to take effect after the death of both Reynold Allen and his wife. Witnessed by John Footman Harrison, Peter Eli Bruce, John Gray, Rachel Kilgo and was recorded in Wake County in 1783. (Wake County, North Carolina Deed Book G, p. 5.)

Although the above deed was recorded in 1783 it never became valid because the senior Reynold Allen lived for many years after that date. He
apparently made the deed to his sons instead of making instead of making a will when he entered the military service. Rennold Allen's name was included on a list of Captain Wood's Company of horse Col. Malmedy's Regiment, July 5. 1781. (Colonial Records of North Carolina, Vol. 15, p. 509.)
At the same time the above deed was made, Reynold Allen made a deed of gift to "My son Peter Eli Bruce to become effective at Reynold's death. That deed wasnot found in Wake County records and was probably never registered, but it is mentioned in an indenture between Reynold Allen Jr. and Peter Eli Bruce, recorded in Iredell County, North Carollina in 1805.
On December 6, 1793 Betsey Hedges a single woman filed a paternity suit against Reynold Allen and he was ordered to appear in court to answer the charges. On December 10, 1794, Reynold was ordered by the court to pay five pounds per year for the support of the child, a boy. Reynold also paid a fine of twenty-five shillings. The records did not indicate whether this suit was against Reynold Allen Sr. or his sn Reynold Allen Jr.

Iredell County, North Carolina was formed in 1788 from a part of Rowan County. The names of many former Wake County residents appeared in the early deed records of Iredell including Reynold Allen, Arnold Bruce, Peter Eli Bruce, Drury Allen, and Peter E. Keeton. The following deeds of early Iredell County concerning Reynold Allen and his kinsmen Bruce and Keeton were abstracted by Mrs. Sara C. Allen of Hiddenite, Alexander (formerly Iredell) County, North Carolina. Note that some these deeds are for Reynold Allen, Jr. others do not have the Junior or Senior designation. Both of the Reynold Allens were in Iredell County so the deeds without the Junior are probably for the elder Mr. Allen.


1796 Reynold Allen deed from Peter E. Keeton, land on South Yadkin River adjoining James Sharpe, the deed witnessed by A. Bruce and (illegible) Gill. (Iredell County Deed Book C, page 112.)

1 October 1800. Reynold Allen Jr. deed from John Graham land on branch of Rocky Creek. Witnessed by William McLelland and Mathew Wallis, Jurat. (Deed Book D, p. 541, reg. 10 August 1802.)

16 April 1805. Indenture between Peter Eli Bruce of Iredell County, State of North Carolina and Reynold Allen, Junior of the same County and State. For $350. good money to Reynold Allen, Jr., all right, title, claim or interest which he hath of, in and to the property or estate of Reynold Allen, Sr., together with all the rights or interest which he hath or suppose he hath unto a certain negro woman named Sylvia and her issue, now in possession of Reynold Allen, Sr., ..... Whereas the said Peter E. Bruce hath heretofore agreed and obligated himself to make equal dividing of claim which he had to said woman and her issue at the death of R. Allen, Sr. between himself, John Keeton, Peter Keeton and William Keeton now therefore are the said Peter E. Bruce and Reynold Allen, Jr. do agree that this deed shall in no way operate to injury of the claimers of the said John, Peter and William Keeton that 3/4s of any right in said which said Peter E. Bruce had or would have had at anytime by virtue of deed of gift executed by said Reynold Allen, Sr. to him resided in the County of Wake or by any transactions consequently thereon is expressly reserved by said Peter E. Bruce ...... but all rights which he may have as heir at law to said Reynold Allen, Sr. by will or in case of deeding of gift being valid in law, one fourth part thereof and all interest rights by law of in amount to estate other than explained above is


fairly and without reserve sold and conveyed unto the said Reynold Allen by those present and the said Peter E. Bruce, ...... Signed by Peter E. Bruche, witnessed by James Campbell, Jurat and James McKay. (Iredell County, N. C. Deed Book E, p. 777.)

1806, Reynold Allen, Jr., a deed from Peter Bruce (Book E, page 777.)

1806, Reynold Allen, Jr., a deed to William Allen (Book F, page 53.)

The exact date of the death of Reynold Allen, Sr; is not known. He was obviously living when the indenture between Peter Eli Bruce and Renold Allen, Jr. was made in 1805 but he was not listed on 1810 census. On the 1800 census of Iredell County, North Carolina Reynold Allen was listed as over 45 years of age "the only white member of his household, living with two non-white servants. The deed records prove that Reynold Allen, Sr. had two sons, Young and Reynold Allen Jr., and a "son" (son-in-law), Peter Eli Bruce, The indenture cited above also mentioned John, Peter and William Keeton as owning a share of the estate of Reynold Allen, Sr., so it is believed their mother was Tabitha Keeton and that she was the daughter of Reynold Allen Sr.

The 1800 census of Iredell County, North Carolina listed Reynold Allen, Jr. as head of a household 25 to 45 years old at that time. Others listed in his househoid were one female, 25 to 45 years of age; one male 16 to 25 years of age; three males and one female between ages 10 and 16; and one male under the age of 10.

Estate records of Iredell County indicate that Reynold Allen Jr. died about 1812. William Allen was appointed guardian of Reynold Allen in July 1811, indicating that his father was no onger able to manage his affairs. William filed a financial account of income and expenses for Reynold Allen from July 6 1811 to January 1812. Reynold Allen was said to be deceased in March of 1812 and an inventory of accounts due the estate of Reynold Allen was filed by Jno. A. Gill, administrator. Most of the "accounts due" In the inventory were marked "doubtful." The estate records do not use the terms Sr. and Jr., but it appears that the father, Reynold Allen, Sr., died Intestate before 1810 and his son, Reynold Allen, Jr., died soon afterward.

The names of the children of Reynold Allen Jr. were found in the estate settlement records of their father. The following deed for part of the estate of Reynold Allen, Jr. is signed by nine "heirs" of Reynold Allen, Jr.

3 September 1813. Susannah Allen, William Moore Allen, David Allen, Darling Allen, Joel Shoemaker and Nancy Shoemaker, his wife, Aly Sharpe Allen, Benton Allen and Clarissa Allen heirs of Reynold Allen deceased, deed to John Haden Allen in consideration of natural love and affection that was from the said Reynold Allen in his lifetime towards his son, the said John Haden Allen, signified by having run off and marked the tract described and allowed John H. Allen to settle upon and improve same and for the sum of 10 shillings paid, 100 acres part of two tracts one of which was conveyed to Reynold Allen by William McCurdy in 1805 and the other from the executors of James McBroom in 1812. Land adjoins Griffin, William and James McCurdy (Iredell County Deeds, Book H. page 110.)

The estate of Reynold Allen was not settled until 1824. In the final accounting of the estate by the administrator, John Gill, there is an entry: "By purchase for the widow 60 pounds, with interest for 10 years, 8 months of 38.40


pounds." The final accounting also included accounts due the estate by six of the heirs: William Allen , John H. Allen, David Allen, Darling Allen, Joel Shoemaker, and Henry Allen, Each heir of Reynold Allen Jr. received one-ninth of the balance of his estate in 1824, but the heirs were not named in the final settlement records.

The final accounting of the estate proved that the wife of Reynold Allen Jr. survived him but her name was not mentioned. The deed to John Haden Allen in 1813 was signed by his eight brothers and sisters making a total of nine heirs mentioned in the deed and in 1824 the remainder of the estate was divided among nine heirs. Henry Allen, who was listed as owing the estate a small sum in 1824, did not sign the deed to John Haden Allen and he may have been the husband of Reynold Allen Jr.'s daughter Aley Sharpe Allen, and/or a nephew rather than a tenth heir.

Young Allen, the oldest son of Reynold Allen, Sr., was born between 1750 and 1755 according to the census records of Wake County, North Carolina from 1800 to 1830. The place of his birth is not known but Young remained in Wake County until his death in 1834 and many of his descendants are still living there.

The wife of Young Allen was Phebe, the daughter of John Pullen proved by her father's will. She was also called Phebe Allen in her husband's will.

John Pullen's will, dated 25 June 1808, Proved in Feb. Court 1809, mentioned the following heirs: Loving wife, Anne Pullen; sons Turner, Thomas, George and William Pullen; daughters Phebe Allen and Sally Rust. Executors named were son Turner Pullen and Allen W. Davis signed with the mark of John Pullen. Witnesses were John Barham, Thomas Garriott and Elly Garrott. (Copy of original from State Archives in Raleigh, book and page not cited.)

Young Allen's will dated 10 February 1825 proved in 1834, mentioned his heirs: Beloved wife, Phebe Allen; sons John, James, Miles, Young W. Henry, Reynolds, Nicholas L. and Solomon Allen; daughters, Elizabeth Rust wife of Jeremiah Rust and Sally Winston, wife of Isaac Winston. Executors named were sons, John Allen and Nicholas L. Allen. Witnesses were Hartwell Wynne and Nancy Barrow. (Copy of the original will from the State Archives in Raleigh, book and page not cited.)

Note that Sally, the daughter of Young Allen, married Isaac Winston The name Isaac Winston has been associated with the Allen family from the earliest records found for Robert Allen (Sr.) in St, Paul's Parish, New Kent and Hanover Counties Virginia. Widow Winston owned land adjoining the Allen land in 1689; Isaac Winston owned land adjoining that of Robert Allen (Sr.) in the early land processioning records and he, Isaac Winston was "security" for Robert Allen's widow in the administration of her deceased husband's estate in 1756, Isaac Winston was a tithable in Lyddall Bacon's District in Lunenburg County Virginia when Robert Allen Jr. and his brother, Drury Allen were there. Both Allen and Winston families were In early Wake County, North Carolina.
John Allen acted as executor for his father's will. Another son, Nicholas L. Allen, was also named as one of the executors in the will of Young Allen but he had migrated to Tennessee after their father s will was written in 1825.

At least four of the children of Young Allen migrated to Tennessee. Nicholas L. Allen and his brother Young W. Allen were listed on the 1830 census of Carroll County. Their sister and brother-in-law, Elizabeth and Jeremiah Rust


were listed on the 1850 census of the same county. Another brother, Miles L. Allen, and his family were in Gibson County by 1830. Miles died there before his father's estate was settled in Wake County, North Carolina and his wife and children received his share of the Young Allen estate.
Pullen family genealogist, Louise Pullen Niedermaier reported that Anne Turner was the wife of John Pullen and the mother of Phebe Allen the wife of Young Allen. John Pullen of Wake County, North Carolina was the son of Thomas Pullen of Lancaster and Northumberland Counties, Virginia and his wife, Elizabeth Everett. Thomas was the son of Henry Pullen who died testate in 1698, Lancaster County Virginia and his wife, Mary Stott, who was the daughter of Brian Stott, Sr. and Mary Shipp. The wills of these Pullen ancestors are recorded in the county records of Virginia.

After 1780 many deeds, both grantor and grantee, were found for Young Allen in Wake County. Young witnessed several deeds for his father, Reynold Allen, Sr. and for his brother, Reynold Allen, Jr. Before moving to Iredell County, the senior Reynold Allen deeded land in Wake County to his son, Young Allen. The deeds of Wake County have been published recently and are available in most libraries so abstracts will not be presented here.

Some descendants of Reynold Allen, Sr. are presented below. It is not known how many children Mr. Allen had but two of his sons, Young and Reynold Allen, Jr., are well documented and some of their descendants have been traced, with many of them still living in Wake and Iredell County, North Carolina.


1 YOUNG ALLEN was born between 1750 and 1755 and he died in Wake County, North Carolina in 1834. He married PHEBE PULLEN, the daughter of John Pullen and Anne Turner. See the above text. Their children were named in the will of Young Allen but the order of their births is not known. 

11 JAMES AKIN ALLEN was born ca 1782 in Wake County, North Carolina and he died there in 1862. James was first married to Mary "Polly" Wynne, the daughter of William Wynne. During his later years on December 19 1849, James married his former sister-in-law, Priscilla (Wynne) Jackson, the widow of Lou Jackson whom she married about 1822.
William Wynne gave a deed of gift to his daughter, Polly Allen, and two of her children.

"9 November 1822. William Wynne of Wake County, North Carolina, for the natural love and affection which I have to my beloved daughter Polly Allen, ...give unto her two negroes by the names Dinah and Dick.

I also give to her daughter, Rebeccah Davis Allen, at the death of my wife, a negro girl named Pansy. Witnessed by Thomas H. Willis, George Thompson and William Allen. Signed by his mark, William Wynne."

The will of James Akin Allen was probated September 30, 1862 in Wake County North Carolina. His will left most of his property to the surviving widow, Priscilla, for her life time, then it was to be divided "amongst all my children and the children of William G. Allen, deceased, are to receive one share to be divided amongst them." Son, Solomon J. Allen, and Mark A. Tate were to be the executors.
