    Notes 
    • From the Alling-Allens of New Haven:
      John Aling, Esq., called also Recorder and Judge.
      Although he learned the trade of blacksmith from his father with his brother Samuel, he seems to have been much of a student, and was interested in the cause of education and in the prosperity of Yale College, having been its Treasurer from 1702 until his death in 1717. He was elected Deputy or Representative by the colony to the Court or Assembly for twenty terms, and his name is entered on the record John Allen until 1701, when, for the first time, it is spelled Alling, although I find his signature Alling at an earlier date.
      In 1704 he was appointed by the Assembly the Judge of the County Courts and also the Probate Judge, and was annually reappointed until 1714, when Jonathan Low was appointed to succeed him in the County Courts, and in 1716 he became so disabled that he could not attend to the business, when the Governor and Council delegated Samuel Ells to act for him during his disability. While Judge he united over seventy couples in marriage. For a time he was himself a member of the Governor’s Council, and on the Governor’s Staff. In 1708 the Assembly put into his care “a barrel of gunpowder with lead and flints answerable for the colony’s use.”
      In 1714 he deeded to his son Jonathan several tracts of land, and also “all of his blacksmith tools of whatever sort,” and in the same year he also deeded to his sons Ebenezer and Stephen various other pieces of land in about New Haven.
      An old slab in the Grove Street Cemetery reads:
      “Here lyeth interred
      the body of the
      Worshipful John
      Ailing, Assis’t, who
      died March 25, 1717,
      Aged 70 years.” [3]
