Born about 1608 in England, not 1588.:
Matthew Grant's Record of Windsor gives an accounting of the number of children born in Windsor, from the beginning to 1677. The last section of the list contains: some omitted in the former records being gone yet had children born here -- Samuell Alyen 6 children. Having six children in the span of time from his settlement in Windsor to his death in 1648 indicates that Samuel Allen came to Windsor as a young married man and that most of his children were born in Windsor. "As a corollary, it is unlikely that he was sixty at death and born 1588, as sometimes stated an more probably he was some twenty years younger.
Not the brother of Matthew Allen of Hartford and Thomas Allen of Barnstable as is frequently stated. Matthew Allen of Hartford and Thomas Allen of Braintree were brothers but their parents, Richard and Margaret (Wyott) Allen did not have a child Samuel. Confusion can be caused because Samuel probably was the brother of Deacon Thomas Allen of Middletown, Connecticut, who made Samuel's son Obadiah and his children heirs to his estate.
Samuel Alyen was an early settler of Windsor Connecticut. Reference was made on 18 March 1638/9 to the house of Samuel Allen in Windsor. He served on a jury 5 Mar 1644/5.

Obadiah d. Middletown, Connecticut 7 Apr 1712. Obadiah was adopted as heir by his uncle Deacon Thomas Allen of Middletown Connecticut who died October 16 1688. Deacon Thomas Allen made Obadiah Allen, and his children his heir. It can be conluded that Thomas and Samuel were brothers.
