was tried at the Old Bailey and sentenced to seven years' transportation for stealing the clothes of
Mary Ann Bailey, whom Allen had assisted in the early evening of 14 March 1787 after Bailey had
lost her way. Allen gave her a drink and a bed for the night, but while Bailey was asleep, Allen stole
her clothes and pawned them. Allen arrived on the Prince of Wales. A daughter, Rebecca, was baptised
at Sydney in October 1789 and John Brown, a seaman, was noted as the father. Rebecca was buried
in February 1790.
