Allan Perley came to this country at the age of twenty-two years, in the fleet with Governor Winthrop, and located in "Charlestowne Village," on land which was later included in the city of Woburn and called "Button-end" near a tract of meadow known as "Parly meddowe," through which meandered a brook spanned by a plak bridge, six and a half feet wide, and known as "Parly brook"
He moved to Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1634 and first appears on the town records in 1635. He located on High Street, a short distance from Governor Bradstreet and the Waldo family. The place was the second houselot northwest of the High Street cemetery. He sold his dwelling house and homestead to Walter Roper, carpenter, of Topsfield on 3 Sept., 1652. He was a large land-holder, having possessions in Essex, Rowley, Boxford, and Ipswich.
He was admitted freeman 18 May, 1642; was a grand juror 25 Sept., 1660. He was excused from training in 1656 and again in 1664. Although coming to America with the Puritans in 1630, he did not join the church until 12 August 1674.
His will dated 23 June, 1670 mentions sons, John, Thomas, Samuel, and Timothy, daughters Sarah and Marth, and deceased son Nathaniel, in addition to his wife, Susanna. Will proved 3 Feb., 1675. His estate was valued at over L320, and included some real estate.
