Edward Pinnock Wallen

???? - 1822


  1. Possibly the son of Matthew Wallen and his wife Catherine Phillips, of Jamaica. Matthew Wallen was the son of Edward Wallen of Snugborough, in the King's County, and Mary nee Armstrong. This source gives him as Edward Pleyer Wallen but does state he was a Major in the 20th Dragoons (see 3., below).

  2. The will of Edward Pinnock Wallen of [Jamaica but at present in London, and late of] Reading Berkshire was proved 26/09/1822. He explained that his son James Smith Wallen had been provided for by his [the testator's] brother-in-law James Smith and sister Mary Player Smith, and accordingly he left his property to his wife Eliza Archange Wallen and his daughter Caroline Fanny Wallen.

  3. The death notice of his wife Elizabeth Archange Wallen in 1835 gives her as widow of the late Major Wallen, of the 20th Dragoons.


T71/865 St Andrew claim no. 165, which gives her as Elizabeth Ann Wallens. There is unsourced information about the family at http://www.linleyfh.com/oursecondsite-p/p333.htm#i22693 [accessed 13/08/2012], which indicates that Eliza Archange Ford married Edward Pinnock Wallen in Spanishtown in 03/09/1806, that the family moved to England in the late 1810s and that Eliza Archange Wallen died at Exeter Devon in 1835.
