Introducing the Allistons

I’ve added a page giving an overview of the Allistons I have tracked down, including a pedigree chart for my great grandfather Walter Alliston.

My Allistons are from Essex, and I haven’t managed to track them back terribly far – my earliest Alliston is Thomas, born in 1774.

When I think of my Allistons, my main thoughts are of sad deaths and spelling that surname!

  • Walter Alliston died in 1899, aged 45, of throat cancer. He took five months to die, and my family has a sad letter he wrote from hospital
  • Henry Alliston, his father, died in 1864, aged 50. He fell from a hay wagon & broke his back, but took nine weeks to die
  • try saying ‘Alliston’ and you can probably imagine all the possible ways people hear & write it down – Allison & Elliston are ones I’ve found quite often
