Note 1

!StyleName: Allan Hotchkiss of Cotton

!Note: There has to be a second Allan. There is a will in 1563 and a burial in 1623 both in Wem. There is a record for Isabell’s christening in 1584 and John had to be born around 1580. These two children had ot belong to the second Allen who died in 1623. This leaves Richard, George and the second Allan to the first Allan. Note that I don’t actually have anything dating George so it’s really hard to say which Allan he goes with.
