The Allistons I have traced so far are from Essex, mainly Marks Tey, Copford, Braintree & Chelmsford.

My Alliston great grandfather, Walter, was born in 1853 in Marks Tey, and died in 1899 in Chelmsford. He started out as an agricultural labourer, but by the time of his  early death from cancer, he was a railway engine driver. See Walter’s pedigree chart.

This post gives some details of his wife, Caroline Claydon, and how she coped after his death.

My earliest Alliston is Thomas (c1774-1840). I am stuck with him, as I don’t know where he was born. He married a Mary Mead at Copford in 1799, and that is as far as I can go. Thomas’ descendents are listed further down this page.

Note 1: this does seem a surname especially open to spelling variations. I have found Allison, Alleston & Elliston in my research. Others have reported almost all possible variations, which should be borne in mind when tracking down stray Allistons!

Note 2: I haven’t yet found any link to the Allistons of Sible Hedingham & Castle Hedingham in Essex – plenty of info about them in the Alliston Yahoo Group.
