E. J. A. Honigmann identifies Robert Allott as a friend of the poet and antiquary John Weever. He entered St. John's College Cambridge, ca. 1592 (B.A. 1595-96, M.A. 1599) and was a celebrated physician. Mark Eccles identifies him as the son of Robert Allott of Lincolnshire, who matriculated at Corpus Christi College Oxford in 1581 and in 1598 describes himself as a gentleman of St. Martin's in the Fields. A "Robert Allat" of that parish was buried in 1603. The former Allott composed prefatory sonnets for Gervase Markham, Christopher Middleton, and John Weever.
