The Allison Family in Durham and London

This page lists those members of the Allison family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

Those members of the Allison family that we know most about lived in London, but the family came originally from County Durham, living in the area between Sunderland and Durham city. We have traced our line back to a Robert Allison who was described as a native of Middle Herrington in the parish of Houghton-le-Spring. We believe that his parents were Robert Allison and Jane Usher, who were married in 1728 in Houghton-le-Spring. The surname was also spelt Allinson in some Durham records.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records.
