Alling Ball and Dorothy

My 10x Great Grandparents Alling (Allen) Ball and Dorothy were most likely the immigrants for this branch of the family. It is estimated that Alling was born around 1620 somewhere in England and Dorothy it is unknown when Dorothy was born or where.

Alling and Dorothy were married around 1649 in New Haven, CT and had 6 children: John 1649, Ephilat 1650, Mercy 1654, Alling 1656, Lydia 1660 and Sarah 1660.

They are seen in a few records in New Haven. Alling was administered the Oath of Fidelity in 1644.

In 1646, he and his wife and perhaps mother-Goody Ball were witnesses in a slander case. The same year, he was before the court for having a defective tricker which I am taking to mean trigger on his gun as other complaints against people on the same day all revolved around service. The remainder of the clipping below shows that he was late on training day but was ultimately excused because he was seeing his sister Fugill off. She was going back to England with her husband Thomas (who was excommunicated).


He was the farmer of 600 acres for the preacher, John Davenport in 1650 and was excused from military service while employed there.

Ailing Ball died 21 Sep 1689 and Dorothy died 22 Feb 1689/90. It is not known where they are buried.
