Biography

Henry Allen was born in about 1835 at Charlbury in Oxfordshire, the son of William Smith Allen and his wife Jane, born Jane Baughan [1] [2] [3].

In 1851 Henry was living at Charlbury with his parents William S. and Jane and his younger sister Louisa. His age was given as 15, implying a birth date in 1835 or 1836. His birthplace was given as Charlbury, Oxfordshire. He was a draper. (His father was described as a tailor and draper) [1].

Later (not much later) in 1861 Henry Allen was living in Church Street in Charlbury with his wife Charlotte E.
