Allen became governor of Barnet in 1634 and was knighted in 1639. During the English Civil War, he was first Commissioner for Assessment, then of Array. He was served as Commissioner of Oyer and Terminer for London and Middlesex in 1660, and was appointed Deputy Lieutenant and Justice of the Peace of the latter county a year later.
