Allin; his career to 1660
Allin (1612-1685) turned 48 years old in 1660. He was a consistant royalist and had quite a successful naval career.
In the 1640s, he was a merchant-shipowner in Lowestoft. In 1644 (the year he turned 32) he became a privateer for the King, serving under Rupert as a captain of a frigate.
Pepys says at one point in the diary that Allin loves money, and he died with quite a lot of it. His journals have been published.
