Facts and Events
Rose Allen, the eldest daughter of George Allen and his first wife, was born in about 1609/10 in England. Rose was apparently married twice during her life. She married first to a man named Joseph Holway (also written Holloway). Joseph, who was a millwright by trade, is thought to have been born in about 1605 in England.
Sometime after arriving in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Joseph and Rose settled for a short period at Dorchester (now within Suffolk County, Massachusetts). In about 1637, however, they moved to the newly established settlement of Sandwich in the New Plymouth Colony of Massachusetts (now within Barnstable County, Massachusetts), where they appear to have resided for the remainder of their lives. While residing at Sandwich, Rose became very active in the Quaker movement and was often persecuted for her beliefs. Joseph Holway died at Sandwich in 1647.
After Joseph passed away, Rose married for a second time to a man named William Newland on 16 May 1648 in the New Plymouth Colony. This was also William's second marriage, having previously been married to a woman named Elizabeth Smith. Rose is believed to have died at Sandwich, in what had then been formed into Barnstable County, Massachusetts, sometime during the period 1690-1695. The date of Rose's death has yet to be determined.[]
