My ancestor, Martha Allen born circa 1785, married Lawrence Breyer in London in 1815. Her father Thomas Allen was from Germany according to a family history that has been passed down through a few generations of researchers(or family history keepers, LOL)

Thomas was a Grocer, (he married a Martha Roberts) who left Germany for London-here are his children

Thomas: Silversmith
Richard: Silversmith and Soldier
Edward: Silversmith and British Army soldier
*Martha married Lawrence Breyer
Henry: Baker, later went to Australia became auctioneer, had large family
one other child, name forgotten

Lawrence and Martha made separate trips to the US. I believe Martha came first, but I'm not positive, I have the immigration record for her and her children, including an 8 month old. Lawrence was a sugar maker. He was buried in Philadelphia in 1845. Martha survived him by 31 years(if I have my Martha right...too many Marthas, LOL)

To be honest I haven't researched much of my Allen line recently- my Breyer line marries into my Fletcher line in 1840 in Philadelphia.

Any ideas or anyone else with this line?
