Allen, Samuel (1)
Allen, Samuel (1), a minister of the denomination of Friends, was born in London, England, Nov. 15, 1771. His ministry did not extend beyond the central and southern counties of England. His standard of right in religious and social and commercial affairs was a high one. His appeals to others were not always made in that spirit of charity which "hopeth all things." Towards the end of his life he suffered with many bodily infirmities, which often induced mental depression. He died at Hitchin, Oct. 22, 1868. See Annual Monitor, 1870, p. 2.
