  • Notes 
    • The 1850 census lists William P. Allnutt, 39, born in Maryland, a farmer, living with his wife Catharine, 33, born in Washington, D.C., and 4 children: Richard J., 9, born in VA; William D, 7, born in MD; Roberta, 5; born in MD; and James, 2, born in MD. Also living with them was a "John H" Allnutt, 34, and his wife Elizabeth J, 30, both of whom also were born in Maryland. 1850 U.S. Census, Buckeystown Dist, Frederick Cnty, MD (M432, Roll 293, stamped p. 220).

      The 1870 census records William P. Allnutt as a 60-yr old farmer, who was born in Maryland, living with his wife "Hellen S.", 55, and a number of children: Robert D. (18); Emma M. (14); Frank F. (12); Richard (7); Henry Clay (5); Mary C. (3) and Florrine Dent (3). 1870 U.S. Census, Adamstown P.O., Frederick Cnty, MD (M593, Roll 568, p. 1).

      T.J.C.Williams & F.McKinsey, HISTORY OF FREDERICK COUNTY, pp.1101-02 (1910), report:
      "The late William P. Allnutt...was born in Montgomery County, Md., in July, 1810. In early manhood, he removed to Frederick County, and began farming on the Three Springs farm.... Mr. Allnutt afterwards abandoned the cultivation of the soil, and became a merchant in Licksville, Md., where he carried on business successfully for a number of years. He owned the old Tavern and store in Licksville, and, when the building was destroyed by fire in 1876, he built on the site a comfortable home in which he spent the remainder of his life. He was a successful business man and would have accumulated more property if he had not lost so heavily during the Civil War, when his store was raided three times, and by both armies. *** [He] was married to Miss Jewell, of Georgetown, Md. Of their seven children, four reached maturity ***. Some years after the death of his wife, Mr. Allnutt was married to Helen S. Smith. Of their nine children, six reached maturity ***. Mr. Allnutt and his family were members of the Roman Catholic Church."

      Wm.J.Grove, HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR (1928), reports that the William Percy Allnutt family were members of the St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Carrollton Manor. (p. 34) Grove writes further (p. 94) as follows: "William P. Allnutt died September 29th, 1888. He was seventy-eight years of age, and was a prominent farmer and resident of Carrollton Manor. He was married twice, there were sixteen children; seven by his first wife, Miss Jewell, and nine by his second wife, Helen Smith. Those living are Richard J., George S., Mrs. Emma Droneburg on the Manor, Lee, Robert, Virginia and Mrs. Mary Fisher, Montgomery County; Howard, who was a son and prominent in affairs, died a few years ago. During the Civil War Mr. Allnutt owned the old tavern and store at Licksville. He lost heavily by raids of both armies."
