George Allen

Father of George Maule Allen. We are grateful to Paul Frecker who found this: "Despite his partial retirement from general practice in 1892, 'there are not many days when Mr George Allen cannot be seen in his old office, and he is always ready to give his advice and generous help in anything which concerns the interests of his old parish. The gift of the churchyard to the parish as a public garden in 1892 was largely due to his assistance, and the marble drinking fountain which he erected for those who use the garden will long remain as a memorial of his thoughtful kindness.' (Source: Two Centuries of Soho: Its Institutions, Firms, and Amusements, by the Clergy of St Anne's Soho, 1898). According to the same source: 'In 1884 Mr. George Allen took his eldest son George M. Allen into partnership, a partnership which was early dissolved by the death of the latter in 1889.'

Pinterest has a photo of a stained glass window in the Allen Room, in St Anne's House which adjoins the church: "To commemorate the long association of George Allen with the Parish of St Anne’s Soho. He was Vestry Clerk for 42 years and filled many honorable {sic} offices in the County of Middlesex and the City of Westminster. Also to record his generosity in the support of the institutions of this parish and especially of the Clergy House and Parish Hall. He was born 28th July 1827 and died April 27th 1911."
