Let’s start by examining Jane’s grandparents and clarify that there are eight distinct lines of research into her origins.

I first pursued the Allen Family Tree and have presented these across a number of pages featuring the key ‘players’ that we identified:

Father:
Ivanhoe W Allen
1919-1996
Mother:
Violet E E Stiles
1921-2012
GF and family:
Walter T Allen
1877-1930
GGF1 and family:
William C Allen
1851-1935
GGF2 and family:
Thomas (James) Allen 1828-1900
GGF3 and family:
Charles Allen
1806-1855
GGF4 and family:
Daniel Allen
1784-1864
GGF5 and family:
George Edward Allen
1766-1850
GGF6 and family:
Philip Allen III
1736-1785
GGF7 and family:
Philip Allen II
1695-1765
GGF8 and family:
Philip Allen I
1667-1728
GGF9 and family:
Reskymer Allen
1620-1690
GGF10 and family:
Thomas (William?) Allen
1596-
GGF11 and family:
John Allen II
1570-
GGF12 and family:
Jefferie Allen
1546-
GGF13 and family:
John Allen I
1520-

For the other seven branches I have produced a single webpage, for ease of navigation. However, you will see that my success rate proved quite variable:

Cranes
back to GGF8
Cullifords
Back to GGF5
Hilliers
Back to GGF2
O’Sullivans
Back to GGF3
Pennys
Back to GGF7
Perrys
Back to GGF3
Stiles
Back to GGF11

Three-quarters of these branches are very firmly rooted in the West Country, the Allens coming from deep into Cornwall, and the final quarter is from Ireland. So at least we can confirm that Jane’s a Celt!
