After his father's death in 1650, he purchased from the creditors of his estate, the dwelling-house, orchard and barn, with two acres of meadow, and in the New Haven Records we find a deed recorded, dated October 4, 1660, by which he conveys to his "Mother-in-law, " Mrs. Johanna Allerton, the house that she now dwells in at New " Haven, with all the furniture in it and the lands and appurtenances "belonging to it, to hold and enjoy during the term of her life, and "afterward to return into the possession of his daughter Elizabeth "Allerton and her heirs, and in case of her dyeing without issue, then "to return to him the first donor, and his heirs and executors without "intermission."

    " 1682-3. Isaac Allerton."

    Isaac married as early as 1652 a wife whose name was Elizabeth— but her maiden name or tho oxaot place of tbeir marriago is unknown. He resided in New Haven, Conn., and had three children born there. Ilis wife probably died about 1060.

    He bought land as early as 1655 at Wicomico, Northumberland County, Virginia, to which place he probably removed after the death of his 1st wife, and married there as his second wife, about 1663, Elizabeth Willoughby, daughter of Captain Thomas Willoughby. Isaac Allerton was her third husband, she being widow of Simon Overzee and Colonel George Colclough. (Sec Appendix note li.)

    The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography says of him (Vol. 1, pago 190), "Colonel Isaac Allerton of Westmoreland County, Virginia, was son of Isaac Allerton, one of the principal emigrants in the Mayflower. He was born at Plymouth, Mass., in 1630. Graduated at Harvard College in 1650, and soon came to Virginia and settled in Northumberland County (then including Westmoreland County.)" Colonel Allerton was sworn a Justice of Northumberland County, 22 April, 1663; was a member of the "Committee of the Association of Northumberland, Westmoreland and Stafford Counties," 1 November 1607 (Northumberland Records, also Henning Vol. 2, page 257). In September, 1075, as Major he was second in command to Colonel John Washington of Virginia forces against the Indians, and November 5, 1077, was second in "Committee of the Peace for Westmoreland County and of the Quorum." Member of the House of Burgesses February 1070-7. (Westmoreland Records.)

    Virginia Carolorum, by Neill, page 347, recites the fact that "in early summer, 1075, the "Doegs," an Indian tribo of tho Potomao, stole from the settlers and afterward killed somo of them"—and then says:-!-"A joint movement of Virginians and Marylanders was arranged to go against them. The Virginians were under command of Colonel John Washington, Colonel George Mason and Major [sniw Allerton." Pagos 380-387 say:—"In 1079, for Hut ilefnimi of tint County from incursions of tho Savages it was enacted that a garrison house or store-house be erected at the head of the four principal rivers and Major lHaao Allertou, grandson of Elder William Hrcwalcr of Plymouth, St. Leger Codd and Colonel George Mason were designated to superintend the building of a house sixty feet long, twenty-two feet broad and a magazine ten feet square, at Ncapsico, near Occognar, on the Potomac River." Ho was appointed a member of the Council in 1083. (Salisbury Extracts.)

    In a letter dated Juno 10, 1091, Governor Nicholson reports to the English Government that Richard Lee, Isaac Allertou and John Armistcad, out of scruple of conscience, refused to take the oath and wero left out of the Council.
