The diary was donated by a descendent of the Allinson family, Barbara H. Hammitt, in October, 1992. It was accompanied by two pamphlets: Proceedings of the Convention of the Friends of Peace, of the State of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, 1850) andLetters and Observations Relating to the Controversy Respecting the Doctrines of Elias Hicks, 3rd ed. (Philadelphia, 1824), the latter of which is inscribed by Elizabeth Allinson (William's sister) to her great niece, Mary Elliott Allinson. Both have been transferred to the Books Division.

The Burlington County (N.J.) Historical Society includes about 80 items relating to the Allinson family (1719-1856).

The Allinson family Papers of the Special Collections and University Archives, Rutgers University, includes approximately 0.75 lin. feet of material, including several of William Allinson's account books, some of his business papers, and letters, diaries, and business records of his father and brother, both of whom were named Samuel, and other siblings.

The Quaker Collections at Haverford College include over 14 linear feet of material relating to the Allinson family.

The Isaac Bonsall Journal in the American Travel Collection, Clements Library, consists of an account of Bonsall's missionary trip to the Indians of northwestern Pennsylvania and southwestern New York State. While they did not coincide, Bonsall's and Allinson's journeys arose out of the same committee in Yearly Meeting.
