  • Notes 
    • Tobias Allein was born about 1590. He was descended from the Alleins of Suffolk, and lived in Devizes, Wiltshire, England. He was a tradesman who was engaged by the corporation to take toll of everything sold in the public market, Devizes being the great center of the wool traffic. He was a prominent citizen, his name often appearing in the town records.
      He was a "capital Burgess" of the common council, and was also a devout Puritan. He married, October 11, 1617, Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Northie, who was four times mayor of Devizes. Children:
      1. Edward Allein, a clergyman, who died in his twenty-seventh year, said to be a "young minister of rare promise."
      2. Joseph Allein, born 1633, at Devizes; he entered Oxford at the age of sixteen; was very studious, became in 1653 a tutor in the colloge of Corpus Christi, where he also acted as chaplain; he was assistant minister at Taunton, Magdalen, Somersetshire, from 1655 to 1662, when he was deprived for non-conformity; but was so broken down by imprisonment that he died in 1668; he was author of "An Alarm to the L'nconverted" and numerous books of a like nature; he died in 1668; he married, about 1655, Theodoshia Allein, a distant relative, who was the daughter of Richard Allein, rector of Dichet, Somersetshire, for nearly fifty years
