   Previous or next generation   

Captain Arthur Allen Sr grew up in Worcestershire, England.
He immigrated to Virginia, BCA in the second half of the 30’ies decade and he was given a property transfer of 200 acres of land for supporting himself, his wife and 3 servants. The property was located in James City Co., Virginia between Lawnes Creek and Lower Chippokes Creek. On October 3, 1661, Allen purchased 500 acres from John and Peleg Dunstan, the sons and heirs of John Dunstan, between Lower Chippokes and Lawns Creek adjoining his other land.

Arthur Allen was an agent for tobacco merchants in Bristol, England. He established one of the largest tobacco plantations in Surry County by the 1660s. Four years later, he built his home, which later came to be called Allen’s Brick House, on this property. It reflected his status as one of the county’s wealthiest men.

Allen’s Brick House was seized and occupied by followers of Nathaniel Bacon in 1676 in protest of British taxation. It renamed Bacon’s Castle in the 1750s. It is considered the oldest brick Jacobean style home in America.
