From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Disallow \Dis`al*low"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Disallowed}; p. pr.
      & vb. n. {Disallowing}.] [Pref. dis- + allow: cf. OF.
      desalouer, desloer, to blame, dissuade.]
      To refuse to allow; to deny the force or validity of; to
      disown and reject; as, the judge disallowed the executor's
      charge.
  
               To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed
               indeed of men, but chosen of God.            --1 Pet. ii.
                                                                              4.
  
               That the edicts of C[91]sar we may at all times
               disallow, but the statutes of God for no reason we may
               reject.                                                   --Milton.
  
      Note: This verb was sometimes followed by of; as, [bd]What
               follows, if we disallow of this?[b8] --Shak. See
               {Allow}.
  
      Syn: To disapprove; prohibit; censure; reject.
