William Allen took part in the Niger expedition of Richard Lander and Oldfield in 1832. He is best known as having commanded the Wilberforce in the elaborately equipped but disastrous expedition under Capt. Trotter to the same river in 1841-42.

In 1849 he published a "Plan for the immediate Extinction of the Salve Trade, for the Relief of the West India Colonies, and for the diffusion of Civilisation and Christianity in Africa by the co-operation of Mammon with Philanthropy". Allen was a Fellow of the Royal Society and some of his landscape paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1828-47.

"The descriptive notices have been chiefly extracted from his diary, which was in part published in the 'United service journal,' between the months of July 1839 and May 1840"--P. vi
