He graduated Harvard College in 1650.
He married first Elizabeth (Unknown) about 1652 and they had two children:
By 1655, he had acquired land in Northumberland County, Virginia and by 1660, he had moved to Virginia.
After the death of his first wife, he married the widow Elizabeth (Willoughby) Overzee Colclough, daughter of Capt. Thomas and Alice (___) Willoughby, in Virginia, after 8 Sep 1662 and before 20 Feb 1663/4. They had three children, born in Westmoreland, Virginia, as follows:
The 2014 edition of the Brewster Silver book addresses the mystery of the child named "Mary." As quoted from page 179: "With so many problems, the theory that Isaac Allerton had a reputed fourth, unnamed, daughter, circumstantially identified as Mary (Allerton?) Newton, wife of John Newton Jr., became difficult to accept and another solution was sought." On page 180 there is a full list of citations showing how Mary can't be Isaac's child. 
He was a Justice of Northumberland County in 1663. He was also a Colonel in the Virginia militia.
He passed away sometime between 25 Oct 1702 and 30 Dec 1702 (date of will and probate), in Westmoreland, Virginia, perhaps in Cople Parish. In his will, he names his daughter Sarah Lee and grandson Allerton Newton, daughter Elizabeth Starr alias Heirs (Eyre/Ayre); daughter (Frances) Traverse (dec'd) and her daughters Elizabeth, Rebecca and Winifred Travers; and son, Willoughby Allerton.
