ALLERTON, Isaac, pilgrim, born about 1583; died in New Haven in 1659. He went from England to Leyden in 1608, and came to America in 1620 in the first voyage of the "Mayflower." He was a wealthy and enterprising member of the colony, and took a leading part in its affairs. He treated with Massasoit, and made several trips to England as the agent of the colony to purchase the rights of the adventurers, to secure patents for lands, and to bring over the rest of the congregation at Leyden. In 1631 he had a dispute with the colony and was dismissed from its service. He then took up his residence at Marblehead, and established trading-stations on Kennebec River, at Penobscot, and other places. Two coasting vessels owned by him were wrecked, and the French and Indians destroyed two of his trading-houses. In 16'15 he was warned by the Plymouth authorities to depart from Marblehead. He was a burgher of New Amsterdam, and was chosen a member of the council in 1643, but resided, after he left Marblehead, at New Haven. His daughter Mary, who died in 1699, was the last survivor of the "Mayflower" company.
