Richard Allen (February 14, 1760 - March 26, 1831) was an African American pastor and the founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Born as a slave of Quaker lawyer, the honorable Benjamin Chew at Germantown, Pennsylvania (now a part of Philadelphia) in 1760, his family, his parents and 3 other children, were soon sold to a Stokley Sturgis, whose plantation was near Dover, Delaware. Allen recorded that Stokely was a very tender and humane man who was more like a father to his slaves than a master.
